I love shooting basketball half-court shots I may sound like I am boasting and I may sound strange for talking about this skill but I am very good at shooting half-courters It is one hundred percent true I love shooting unusual shots while playing basketball Well the first time that I heard about it my nerves rushed with adrenaline One chance at a half-court shot for a total of five hundred dollars during half-time of the annual SeniorAlumni Basketball Game Now that is a lot of money for a high school student almost enough money to cry over Anyway I heard about this chance as I was eating my tacos and nachos at the varsity football team lunch table Andre Walters our free safety first introduced me to this contest to win five hundred dollars Not only did I become ecstatic because of the contest but also in anticipation of the day of the game That very afternoon after school had let out I strode to the basketball gym to warm-up with some half-court shots I began to practice right away because I did not play a spring sport After one bare miss BOOM I put it right through the hoopBOOMBOOMI was firing them one right after the otherBOOM I found this unbelievable I basically had five hundred dollars staring me in the face on that warm spring afternoon at my old high school gym but I wasnt able to grab it not yet I couldnt believe I just nailed all of those seemingly impossible shots I took a quick break to go into the canteen and tell anyone I could find of my newly-found skill and how I was going to take that five hundred dollars away from the school and straight into my old worn-down black leather wallet Ohhh I couldnt wait until the contest After my boasting was finished Mike Messina a friend of mine followed me into the basketball
