A few months ago, I dusted off my (rarely) used athletic shoes and hit the basketball court with a close friend. We played a quick game of H-O-R-S-E to warm up, followed by a game of one-on-one. I’d played basketball in high school and was a good outside shooter back then. My friend is a solid player, and we'd done a lot of trash talking leading up to the game. While I didn’t count on a victory, I did not expect what happened next.
