when I was a little boy I thought i would become zidane but i was not as good as him

When i was a child i absolutely HATED sports and physical education. Now, my mother had told me about the Vietnam war and how there was a draft and any male over 18 could be called upon to fight and if they refused, they would be imprisoned.
So when i heard there was an NFL draft and an NBA draft, i thought it was the same idea, with the draftees selected at random amongst the general populace. I was so scared that when i turned 18, i was going to be selected and i would be forced to either play major league sports or rot in prison.
i used to think that the highest number a football player had on his jersey was how many players were on the team; i was wondering why they needed to pay so many extra players when none of them substituted in. i looked for all the numbers in between!

When watching Football, you'd always see a player on the phone.........I always thought they were there so players could talk to their mom or dad while the game was going on.
