Recently, while standing on the side lines covering a high school football game, I heard the following conversation between the starting quarterback and one of the coaches:
“Coach, I can’t go back in!”
“Why, what’s the matter?”
“I can’t go back in, I have to go the bathroom.”
“Well, son, you are wearing black pants, go ahead.”
“Come on, coach, I have to go bad. I have to GO REALLLLLY BAD!”
At this point, the coach gave his keys to the field house to the quarterback who ran very gingerly but fast as possible to take care of business. In the mean time the backup quarterback started warming up. Fortunately, the starter made it back in time to go on the field when the offense took over the ball.
