The Only Ones

We are here at Jordan's lax tournament. Me, Ron, and Jordan' girlfriend-Joan. We are the only people of color - any color besides a tan - at the tournament. Jordan is the only Black kid here and there are 10 teams. WTH!? Damn - what does that mean? ...Blacks don't play lax? Just makes me wonder.

Of course, smarty pants here just shruggs and says "All the more possible scholarship money for Jordan.". And "Ya know, not all Black kids can play basketball. Jordan will make it possible for other Black kids to be a student athlete." He may have a point. Where else can you run up and down a field with a ball AND hit people with a stick.

It might be a good thing to be "The only one." Pioneer like.
