A group of elementary school-aged kids run the length of the mini soccer field. The ball moves toward the goal, thanks to one part skill and two parts luck. One child falls, bringing another two with him, allowing a fourth to break away from the dog pile and score.

The “referee,” after helping kids stand back up and making sure they’re not injured, congrats the lucky player, but mentions she scored on her own goal. But she’s not embarrassed — in fact, she’s already sprinting toward the ball the ref tossed back into the middle of the field, closely tailgated by her fellow athletes.
