I wouldn't say this story is that sad, but I don't consider it funny in retrospect. In middle school, the whole gym was a basketball court, so basketball was a common sport we played. They would rarely do something serious as a tournament, and I lost in the first round. It was 2 vs. 2 and I got paired with the worst player in our class. It was like relying on a little girl to school Michael Jordan in a basketball game. I was never the greatest athlete but I literally was sweating like crazy trying to perform a miracle with only half a team.
