The Enforcer

Monson loves Basketball !!!
He only has 2 games left, then region play is over for the year.
 He plays great JV ball and a little bit of Varsity.
He was playing tough tonight  against East High.
We were up by 20 in the 4th period.   Monson and a bunch of starters went out.   New guys came in, and East went on a 16 point run.  Partly because of a kid from East who was crazy...out of control.  Our boys kept getting hurt.  Elbow in the mouth.  Thrown to the floor.  Fouls were being called on us time and again, nothing on East.  After a pretty flagrant foul, that wasn't called on East.  Our Coach called a ref over while East was shooting.  He said....so many of us could hear.......
"That kid is out of control.  He has hurt a number of our players. You get him under control.  IF one of their kids touches another one of my players  I'll send  him in ( gesturing to Monson) and he'll take all of them out.   It's your choice."
Monson's face was startled.  He got knuckles all around from his team mates.
Monson went in....
East got scared...
or the Refs did......
Monson made 4 clutch free throws.
We won by 7.
Monson as the Enforcer.....it's a good fit.

I bet he does a great job on the team. However when I think of Monson I imagine him and Hayden as our cute little boys.
