The girls on the Eagles team "adopted" him (I'm not sure they had much of a choice, he was very persuasive) and volleyed with him as they were able. My little man was so happy I thought he was going to bust! He got super excited as the time got closer for the game to start. As the other team started filing in, James decided to go up to their coach and talk to her about their practice techniques. In his black and white ways of seeing the world, he told her up front that the Eagles were going to win because THEY were practicing with balls! The visitor coach quickly got out the balls to even the field.
I don't know what team won (I had to leave to get my daughter), but I do know that James had an amazing time and he has a future in sports broadcasting!!
"Did you see that mom? That ball landed like an asteroid!"
"Come on visitors, you need to get the ball!"
