Discouraged?

 

As I was driving home from work one day, I stopped to watch a local Little League baseball game that was being played in a park near my home. As I sat down behind the bench on the first-baseline, I asked one of the boys what the score was.

 

"We're behind 14 to nothing," he answered with a smile.

 

"Really, I said. "I have to say you don't look very discouraged."

 

"Discouraged?" the boy asked with a puzzled look on his face. "Why should we be discouraged? We haven't been up to bat yet."
