Coach Nordling: Boys, Dee is our starting goalie, but there may be games when he is unable to play. Boy: Coach, why wouldn't Dee be able to play? Second boy: You know -- he might have gotten his nose smashed by a soccer ball. Third boy: Or his fingers got broken when somebody kicked at the ball while he was holding it. Jack: Or his eye might pop out when he dives for a ball and he hits the goalpost. Dee: Or I might be home hiding in my closet.
