Our third game was quick to come around, as we all sat in the locker room to get our new jersey's.

I sat between Charlie and Tammy as Coach Bombay picked out the first green and yellow Jersey in the pile, flipping it around for everyone to see.

On the front, was a picture of a duck in skate gear, having on a jersey with 'D-5' on it, holding a hockey stick in it's hands.

Underneath it was the word 'Ducks' in big yellow letters. "The Ducks?" Jesse was the first to speak up, and continued with"We're The Ducks?" He didn't sound to pleased as Peter piped up.

"Man, what brain-dead jerk came up with that name?"

Coach lowered the jersey in his hands, looking a bit offended"As a matter of fact, I did. But I didn't have a choice. We're being sponsored." Lester was quick to comment"By who? Donald and Daisy?" looking over to Guy and Connie who were currently sitting next to each other.

Causing them and a few others to laugh, as me and Charlie looked at each other, already annoyed with them. "Hey, you don't want to be Ducks? You'd rather be District 5? Some stupid number?"

"Better than some stupid animal."

There were a few 'ooo's here and there as I kept quiet 'I don't think being a duck would be so bad' I thought as Coach walked over towards Peter "I'll have you know, Peter, that the duck is one of the most nobile, agile and intelligent creatures of the animal kingdom."

Connie commented with"But they're wimpy"

Guy followed, adding on to her statement"They don't even have teeth"

"Neither do hockey players" Coach Bombay countered, causing me, Charlie and his mom to laugh as Charlie and I looked at each other. Coach now started to walk around the room as he spoke.

"Have you guys ever seen a flock of ducks flying in perfect formation? Its beautiful. Pretty awesome the way they all stick together. Ducks never say die. Ever seen a duck fight? No way. Why? Because the other animals are afraid. They know that if they mess with one duck, they gotta deal with the whole flock."

He walked back around to the front of the room, taking off his jacket, only to reveal him already wearing a Jersey. Causing some of the guys to laugh as others said"Oh man!" And "woah!"

Coach continued"I'm proud to be a duck. And I'd be proud to fly with any of you. So how about it? Who's a duck?" It was quiet for a couple of seconds as everyone looked at each other.

Fulton was the first to speak, as he got off the wall he was leaning on"I'll be a duck." Leaning his stick against the wall, he walked over to get his Jersey. I soon got up with a smile on my face, while saying"I'll be one too." I was about to walk off when I heard Charlie say"Yeah, me too" he followed me up there.

The others were quick to get up one by one, as we all now huddled around the box to get our jersey's. "We are the Ducks!" Coach Bombay yelled as we all cheered"Yeah!"

"The Mighty Ducks!"


"What are we?!"

"The Ducks!"

I was in the locker room putting my stuff on for the game, Charlie leaned against the lockers, stick in hand waiting for me to finish getting ready. He was already all ready to go as he asked"So what's the song for today?" I thought for a moment and shook my head.
