Backing Up Your Buddies

I drove three high school baseball players to practice this morning and overheard their conversation about a talent show at school yesterday. It seems there was an act with two boys, and one of them forgot the words during his big solo. The other one stepped up and covered for him. They got a standing ovation.

“That was a class act,” I heard one of the ballplayers say, referring to the friend who made sure his buddy didn’t fail in front of the whole school.

Indeed.

    Isn’t it cool how making a “mistake” can actually make your performance more successful? Awesome kids.
