Exposition Jamie Blows layup and loses the game to Powell Academy. "Then I blow the layup," I said. "Why you do that?" Froggy asked. "How do I know?" I said. "I was free, didn't rush it, I banked it soft off the backboard just like in practice, and it rolled around the rim and fell off!" "So you want to go by my crib and listen to some jams? Froggy asked. "Man, the whole school is on my case for blowing the game to dumb Powell Academy and you talking about listening to some jams," I said.
Rising Action Stopped at Junior dance poster, thinks about asking Celia Evora to the dance. "We stopped to look at the posters for the junior dance and a girl gave me a bump in the back." I gave her a look and she gave me a look back. "How you blow that layup?" she said. "You taking bribes or something?" When she left I turned my attention back to the junior dance. "I'm thinking about asking Celia to the dance, I told Froggy. "Celia Evora?" he asked. "Yeah." Celia was from the Dominican Republic and the finest chick in the school."
Climax Froggy tells Jamie he's on a streak. "By the time I got to the refrigerator to get some ice for my ankle I was crying. " "No, I don't mean no sad look--- I mean some right out boo-hooing with tears running down my face, My ankle was throbbing, my feelings were hurt, and I was ready to give it all up and resign from the human race." Froggy, I give up, man." I said. "I'm on a Death streak and I know I'm probably headed right out of the world...." " Seven things," Froggy said. "Now you have seven pieces of good luck coming your way."..."You have six to go."
