"We all lived in the neighborhood for a couple of more years-mostly through junior high school-and every summer was great. But none of them ever came close to that first one. When one guy would move away, we never replaced him on the team with anyone else. We just kept the game going like he was still there."

I was sitting in a picturesque town square park, watching dozens of high schoolers dressed for Prom having their photos taken. This guy showed up to add a little dose of reality to the event. #awesome.
