Life doesn’t always turn out as you plan. For example, I joined the school band in fourth-grade instead of the peewee football team because I didn’t want to carry a helmet, shoulder pads and other equipment back and forth from my house to the field.

I also didn’t look forward to getting knocked around and clouted in the head on the football field. After all, my brothers and I did enough of that to each other at home.
