A memorable basketball debut

Soccer matches often end in a tie. Hockey games too. But basketball?

When it involves 4- and 5-year-olds, yes. My son Ryan's first basketball game ever ended in a 16-all tie on Saturday. Ryan scored four points, but he might've made more of an impression with his dancing on the court.

Yes, during the game. He also had a hard time keeping his pants up. I know baggy shorts are the trend, but we probably should've gone with extra small over small.

Asked for comment after the game, Ryan said:

"I don't know what to say."

It's a rare moment when he's speechless.
