He was walking off the practice field when his assistant excitedly approached him.
“Coach, coach, Sports Illustrated is on the phone and they want to talk to you.”
Harry’s adrenaline began pumping and his heartbeat accelerated. This was his big chance. They obviously wanted an interview with him. He knew once Sports Illustrated, a national magazine, published the interview he would be getting tons of phone calls from prominent colleges throughout the country. He would have his choice of where to coach. Later he would be asked to be a guest speaker and flown around the country to speak as a motivational speaker and/or as a highly skilled and astute coach. His life was about to change for the better. First he would buy a brand new car and then a large house in a nice area.He entered his office and picked up the phone. All those years of hardwork and sacrifice were about to pay off.
“Hello, this is Coach Harry.”
“Hello Coach, this is Sports Illustrated. We were wondering if you’d like to renew your subscription this year?”
