Rational Expressions – Math and Basketball

Sometimes I write comics about things that have already happened.  However, this time, the comic was written first.

Kyler had his very first basketball game later that same day, but when he realized that his team was losing, he stormed off the court crying, and we couldn’t get him to play for the rest of the game.

Other parents were supportive and said that it happens to everyone, and we’ve since talked to Kyler, so hopefully it will go better at the next game.

The lesson for me is this: Be careful what you write, because sometimes life imitates mathematically-driven amateur pseudo-art.
