Rookie Sensation Elevates Game to Whole New Level

“It’s his finest hour,” the coach bragged loudly to the clamouring reporters. “Joes gives 110% every game he plays.”

“Over here! Joe!”

The reporters climbed over each other, vying for his attention.

“How does it feel to be at the top of your game?”

“There’s no “I” in team, guys – oh, and gals too!” Joe grinned self-consiously. He shuffled his feet, uncomfortable in the limelight being shone on him. “We win and lose as a team. But I guess records are made to be broken. I’m just proud to be able to help out my team. I go out there, try to stay focused, and some days it comes together.”

“You heard it here folks,” said the reporter, turning to the camera. “Joe quieted the naysayers today. Watching this rookie-sensation is worth the price of admission!”

Watching at home, Johnny exclaimed “I wanna be like Joe when I grow up!”


Author’s note: So, what game did you ascribe to this?

Artist's Description

This is my first entry for the Flash Fiction June Challenge based on the Bulwer-Lytton competition. Basically, the competition challenges entrants to write the first paragraph of the worst novel ever told. “It was a dark and stormy night” opens the 1830 novel by Edward George Bulwer-Lytton called Paul Clifford and has been so over-used over the years that it has become a painful cliché.
