A On Sundays my father wore that gray apron. After breakfast he always announces,Go ahead everyone, Ill wash the dishes! For the next hour Dad did the dishes, singing songs like I Had a Hat When I Came In. I suppose it was strange for a boys father to wear an apron. It was the last Sunday in August. My father seemed happy as we walked home from the supermarket together. Tommy, he said, There comes a time in every boys life when he must take on responsibilities. Starting today, I want you to wash the dishes on Sunday morning so your mother and I can read the newspaper. Wash the dishes? Anything wrong with doing the dishes, son? I started to say something about a mans job or a womans work, but I knew quickly that my protests would be of no use. I didnt taste a bit of breakfast that morning. Dad seemed excited as he talked about a soccer game on TV and didnt notice me at all. Suddenly, everything grew quiet. My sister began to clear the table. My brother was eating the last of the egg on his plate. And then my father said to my mother, Lets go and read the paper, dear. So this was what my life had come to. I could learn Latin well. I could be good at playing baseball. I could do anything, but I could never do those dishes. There was nothing left but to refuse. My father came back into the kitchen, and in his right hand was the old apron. I want you to have this, Tommy. Itll keep your clothes from getting wet. And before I could say a word, he had put the thing on me.Thank you, son. I looked down at the apron. It had seen better days, I could see my dad reaching for the dishes. Soon I was singing about I Had a Hat When I Came In. The words came out of nowhere. And I knew the kind of man I wanted to be.

These kids were only five or six years old. I would just call them Team One and Team Two. Nobody scored in the first period. The kids were just playing happily. In the second quarter, the coach( ) of Team One put in some beginners. His best player now guarded the goal.
The game changed very quickly. The coach of Team Two left his best players on, and the Team One beginners were no match for them. Team Two moved around the little boy who was now the Team One goalie().Team Two began to score goals. The goalie did everything he could to stop them. Team Two scored two goals quickly. This angered the young boy. He became a little tiger-shouting, running, and diving. But by himself he could not change the situation. I soon learned who the goalies parents were. They cried encouragement to their son. After the third goal, the little kid changed. He could not stop them. He began to look sad. After the fourth goal, the little boy began to cry. He fell to his knees and put his hands to his eyes. When the boy fell to his knees, I saw his father run onto the field. He picked up his son so everybody would know that this was his boy, and he hugged him and held him. He carried him off the field, and then I heard him say,Scotty, I am so proud of you. You were great out there. I want everybody to know that you are my son. Daddy, the boy cried,I could not stop them. I tried, Daddy. I tried and tried, but they scored on me. Scotty, it does not matter how many times they scored on you. I am proud of you. I want you to go back out there and finish the game.
