Hey Mom, can I go tryout for the spring football team? Practice is just outside of town. You know I need to get stronger and tougher so I can be better at soccer
No Mike, its to dangerous. You could get hurt!
Only ten percent of middle schoolers actually get hurt, so that proves that I can get stronger and not hurt! You always wanted me to be the best that I can be. football is how I am going t0o be the best
Ok, I can see what you mean.
And I know you think that I will like football better and play this for the rest of my life, but I love soccer more then anything. So because of these reasons I think I should be able to tryout for the team.
