Basketball Tears


True Story: When I read the account of the basketball player whose leg broke in half during the Kentucky/Duke game on Sunday (NY Times, Monday, April 1, 2013), I cried. I admitted to the crew that the article got me worked up.

Chloe: Boys were talking about that at school. Gross!

Charlie: You cried?! Over basketball?!!!

Gigi: Are you crying? Who’s crying? Why are you crying? Are you still crying now, Mom?

Max: Wanna see the footage of that? I’ve got that. Wanna see it?

Scott: Hmm. (Barely a pause.) Any thoughts about what we’re going to eat for dinner tonight?
