The Season Begins

"So, Bob, your first soccer practice is tomorrow. You guys are going to pick your team name."

"I'm not doing soccer this year."

"Yes you are doing soccer this year."

"I don't wanna."

"Back when sign ups happened at the end of the school year, you begged me to do it. You made a commitment. Now you've been placed on a team. There's no turning back."

"Okay, but there's always someone distracting on my team and I end up  never paying attention. That's happened on every team. There's always a guy."

"Honey, I think you're the guy."

"Oh... Well... That's not good because I know I'll be on my team."
