(Personalized information is indicated by parentheses.)
- The championship game was only hours away. The (Team), (Child)'s favorite team, were just one game away from being the champs. (Child) had already invited (Friend) to watch the game on television with (him). All that was left to do was check the snacks and, for the fourth time today, study the team line-ups.
- Unknown to (Child), the (Team) were in trouble. The coach had just learned that the star player had a sprained ankle and could not play tonight. No other players were available. The situation seemed hopeless.
- "What about that kid, (Child) so-and-so, who you just signed," the coach asked the team's general manager. "You mean that kid who lives in (Hometown)?" replied the G.M. "(He's) a little young and inexperienced!" "Call him," replied the coach, "and get him here any way you can, even if you have to rent a private jet. All we need is a back-up in case of injury. He'll just sit on the bench."
- The general manager, a bit nervous about tonight's game, still couldn't remember the player's last name. "Was it Leroux, Lamante, (Last name)? Yes, (Last name), I think that was it," the G.M. said and he quickly looked through the (Hometown) phone book for the number.
- For (Child), time was moving slowly. When the phone rang, (Child) answered. "Hi," said the G.M. "I know this is unusual, (Child), but we have a game tonight and we need you to play.

"Right here," said (Child) again. "But! But! You look like you're only (age) years old," replied the surprised official. "Are you that good of a hockey player?" "Yeah, I'm pretty good," (Child) replied.
- "Where are we going?" (Child) asked as they jumped into a limousine. "To the home arena of the (Team)," replied the hockey-type guy. "The game is sold out. There will be thousands of people at the arena and another 10 million watching on television." "Sure, 10 million watching and me playing at the home of the (Team)! Does he really think I believe him?" (Child) thought to (himself)...
