Heidi: Here in New York!

Andrew: See the New York Knicks play.

Heidi: You must be one sports dude.

Andrew: Really Heidi! I really wanna see a sports game with you some day.

Andrew: Yeah I know it was. Who are you?

Walburn: My name is Coach Walburn. I coach basketball here at Ithaca High School.

Andrew: I’m Andrew Dalton! I just moved here from Albany.

Walburn: Andrew! That’s a clever name and guess what, you just made the basketball team.

Andrew: But I didn’t try out for the basketball team.

Walburn: Well after seeing a shot like that you don’t have to.

Andrew: Wow! I just threw away a piece a paper and I just got selected to be on the team.

Walburn: But the thing I need to know is this. Can you really play basketball?

Andrew: Yes! As a matter of fact I played basketball all time when I was in elementary school.

Walburn: Terrific! We are looking forward to it, you’re first practice is tomorrow. See you then!

Heidi: I thought choking came from some thing that grabs you’re neck and you’re doing these weird sounds.

Andrew: Heidi! Not that kind of choking!

Heidi: Oh! I don’t get why I’m getting some things wrong.

Michael: I’m pretty sure you’ll do okay in the next game.

Andrew: But I’m afraid that I’m gonna screw up like you did today.

Andrew: Not anymore Heidi Makinney! They like me again because I quit the team.

Heidi: Why did you quit?

Andrew: I quit the team because just in case I screw up at the next game, I would probably be hated again. I even told the coach that. He even said I’m more than welcome to see the team anytime I want.

Heidi: Now know one will hate you anymore.

Andrew: That’s right! So I’ll still be able to play basketball during my free time.
