Sally was sitting down under a tree watching a basketball game and thought, "Woah, this is so cool! I wish I could play on a team."
Woah, these basketball players are amazing!
She was so inspired by the game she asked the basketball team if she could join in and play with them, or at the very least practice.
Can I please join?
Sadly, the coach said "no" and walked away.
Sally felt heartbroken.
No, You're a girl, only boys can play basket ball.
Sally went home and lay hopelessly in her bed as tears formed in her eyes.
I'm a hard worker. Why wouldn't I be able to play?
While questioning her circumstances Sally had a stroke of genius.
"No, that won't work, well maybe? I guess I could try. If they catch me, then I'm out, and I'm out already, so I have nothing to lose, you know what? I'll give it a try. I'm going to dress up like a guy, and I'm going to show them all that I can be just as good!"
