Did You Know...
that I only learned how to play basketball when I was 16 years old? The first time I ever played, I made a slam dunk...the only problem was that I had forgotten to dribble the ball first! All the other kids laughed at me and I was so ashamed, but I did not let that first mistake stop me from coming back to the court and trying again.
Adonal's Trivia Contest -
The contest is now closed. Winners will be announced shortly, good luck!
How carefully have you looked at my website? All of the answers to the following questions can be found on the site. Search hard, lucky winners could receive a pair of my basketball shoes, tickets to a Warriors' game, or gift certificates to some cool stores.
This contest is open to everyone. Winners will be drawn from entries with all 20 correct answers. Kids under 15 only have to get 15 of the 20 questions right (feel free to ask an adult for help!).
