Basketball is one of my favourite games. Today is Thursday, and it is one of those really amazing days, because…WE GOT TO PLAY BASKETBALL, at school today. I really like the fact that I’m leading the school team quite often.
My team is called the COLLARS UP! team (yes). That’s a weird name I suppose, but it has got a reason. We’re symbolized, that is, distinguished from other rival teams by our upturned collars during the game, because we all wear the same uniform and it is very difficult for the players to identify their own teammates and their rivals, and for the audience to differentiate between teams.
I am usually at the center or at the point guard, because I usually start the match and I am also the tallest player (actually, the tallest child in my form). I am really proud of myself because I am considered one of the best basketball shooters (and dribblers, sometimes) in school history (tapping myself on the shoulder. You go buddy!).
My team has quite a few good players. Jiya is one of them. She can jump real quick and grab the ball from the rivals in mid-air. She is one of the best players in the team. Then there is Purba, who has an excellent ability to catch the ball very swiftly and pass it on. She never misses a single catch! We also have Mitali, the lazy one who is reputed for scoring at least two own goals in every match. Literally, she passes each and every ball to the rivals. We’re very pleased when she is absent or unwilling to play.
We play basketball every Thursday at school. And today we defeated the Collars Down! team by one goal. The winning goal was scored by Jiya and we’re proud of her!
