Don’t date Jeff

What is the most embarrassing moment that happened in a game or practice?
We had to go to the bathroom so we tried to hop over a waist-high fence. All my friends got over just fine but I caught on it and my shorts ripped right down the buttcrack. It was at a boys’ lacrosse game and one of the moms yelled at them to help me because I was stuck on the fence.
What is your favorite moment from the last four years playing your sport?
The first time we won a game because we played a whole year without winning. Second year we won our first game. None of us knew how to play before and we worked so hard to win.
