By Gabriel Vizgan  “You’re going to be there, right?” “Yeah, yeah I’ll be there,” was the respond I got. My best friends and I were signed up for the two on two basketball tournament scheduled for tomorrow. “Hey,” he said “I head David Goldman is going to be there.” David was the best basketball player in our grade. But, I wasn’t worried. “Yeah, but so what? We’ll do fine. See you tomorrow.” The next day I sat at the registration desk waiting for my friend. And I sat there. And waited. And sat. And waited. But he never showed. It turned out he didn’t come because he was afraid to go up against David. I wasn’t angry with my friends, just disappointed that I never got the chance to win the contest.
