I suppose if you'd told me early in the season that Murder Kornet and The Hausitzer would play > 10 minutes in the NBA Finals for the Celtics, I would have taken that deal just to see what the hell happened.

At 11 years old, Olivia Moultrie was given a soccer scholarship by the University of North Carolina to play there after when she reached eligibility and then ditched that a few years later to sign an endorsement deal with Nike and turn pro. At 15 years old, Moultrie successfully sued the National Women's Soccer League over their eligibility rule (no one under 18) and then joined the Portland Thorns. Her first game was at 15 years old and then just the other night, at 16 years old, became the youngest player to score a goal in the NWSL. The kids are alright.

Meanwhile, my 12 year old is getting good at avoiding outdoor air, playing Roblox, playing Ginchen Impact, and watching Roblox Youtubers on her iPad.
