That's it lads, keep it up! Sam, do extra! Ok bring it in.
Alright! As you all know, Christmas is coming up, but we still have to practice the day after, we have a championship coming up. Is that clear?
Can I have the day off? I was going to see my grandpa.
John the coach is having his high school soccer team run, yelling at them meanly.
John tells the team that they still have to practice the day after Christmas, which seemed outrageous to them. Eric was really sad that he couldn't see his grandpa, that was the only time only year he got to see him.
The days fly, by and Eric keeps begging the coach for that day off, and keeps getting denied. Before he knows it, it's Christmas Eve.
Eric tries one last time to get John to give him the day off, but it doesn't work. Eric goes home and cries a ton. He is super mad at John for not letting him have just one day off.
John goes home, but thoughts plague his mind about Eric, and he finds it hard to go to sleep, but eventually does.
John dreams of Eric crying all day, even though he got a bunch of new presents.
