School Story:

Just that I loved sports as I seamed to have a lot of energy. I was almost always the shortest in football, basketball and baseball-I should have gone out for baseball instead of track as I was much better at it. Broke my collar bone in football playing in Junior Varsity in last year--which broke my heart too because that was my favorite sport. I remember being in the locker waiting before that last game I played and I was approched by our center when he asked-Joe--what are we going to do whithout you if "you" get hurt??
