Discuss Frank reclaiming the sport basketball after his father's death. Also share your thoughts on Frank's state of mind after he injures his knee at the end of the story.

Well, the story cracks me up in terms of 41 being over the hill. I don't think so, but perhaps one does have to be a bit more careful.

In response to the first discussion topic, I think that, when one's parent dies, mortality comes closer to those left behind so it's natural to reach out to those younger glory days to reaffirm one's vigor, vitality and life. So -- Frank IS going to be O.K. He knows it. He's had his fling and now that's out of his system, it's done. It's like a rite of passage thing.
