One time I was asked to be in a three-on-three basketball tournament. I decided to do it for two reasons. First, there was a $300 dollar prize for the winner and it was a chance to try out my new basketball shoes.
Our teams turn to play came up and we lost our game. After the game this black box was brought out to the floor. My two teammates took off their basketball shoes and put them in the black box and and they were hinting at me to do the same. What I did not realize was that in this tournament winners got a prize but the losers of each game had to give up their basketball shoes. I took my new basketball shoes off and held them in my hands for a while staring at what was no longer mine and I dropped my shoes into the black box.
