    The Knights of Columbus does an annual basketball free throw contest. It's free. Kids enter, shoot 15 shots, winner moves on to district and then state finals. District is done immediately after the council winners are announced.
    Anyways... She won the council and moved on to district. She was then told that she won and was moving on to state finals in Columbia. Keep in mind that she's never played basketball before. She's so excited. She calls my wife and my parents to tell them.
    All of a sudden another 9 year old girl shows up that won the at her council. She beats my daughter by 2 shots. My daughter vanished for 20 minutes. Turns out she was crying in the bathroom

    Well, I'm sorry that she's upset. Was there some kind of wrongdoing? Otherwise, that's life and she learns from it.

    I thought you were going to say she found out her dad is "shitty" on the HS board. ;)


    But seriously, sorry to hear that. Little kids take those hits hard. It'll be sore for a few days. :(

    They actually wanted to give her the medal right after they told her she won. Thank God I talked them into waiting and doing a presentation later

    I would have made my kid walk home for losing like that.

    I would have made them walk backwards for crying.

    When I was 12ish I was part of some youth basketball team. The coach's son was this annoying kid that resembled Napoelon Dynamite.

    Toward the end of the 4th quarter, he gets the ball, and scores against our own team, and then does a victory lap around half the court. When he realized what happened, he started bawling like a little sissy for an hour.

    That story might make her a feel a little better.
