Paste was never one for team sports, but who can blame him?  Team sports weren’t made for the short kid with ego issues.  Skateboards.  Those are good for the short kid with ego issues… and parents who’d like him to entertain himself for a few hours while they got some work done.

Team sports require you to be good enough that you don’t irritate the kids who play all the dang time, while keeping an eye on a whole crowd of people who all want the same ball.  If everyone had their own ball and own agenda, well, that’d be a different kinda game now, wouldn’t it?  Who knew that team sports were some kinda euphemism for famine times?  Everyone after the same ball?  Pah!  We live in modern, first-world countries!  We can all afford our OWN balls!
