The Basketball Game

One morning a couple of friends were just strolling along the streets and came upon a basketball court. They had found some people there who were already playing. So they asked if they could play against them. They laughed at them and said get lost. The friends made a deal with them and said they would play them for the court. They accepted the challenge. They were playing to twenty. The opposing team was up by eight, the score was eighteen to ten. They were messing around for the last shot but the other team was making a comeback and they had realized that the score now was eighteen to eighteen. They said game point and the friends that challenged them ended up beating them with a long distance three pointer. The other team left in disappointment. The moral life lesson in this selection is to never underestimate your opponents.
