Basketball trash talk Middle School style

Overheard in our car...

Brunette Twin:  "The coach told us to trash talk the other team to try to get them to miss or distract them."

Mom:  "Really? What are you supposed to say?"

Brunette Twin:  "Things like your breath smells bad or your shoes aren't pretty. You know, stuff to annoy them"

Mom:  "What did you say?"

Brunette Twin:  "Nothing. I couldn't do it. One girl on our team told another girl that she had nice shoes, though. She couldn't do it either."

It's clear that our team is missing some kind of competitive spirit. They are having fun, which is good because they clearly don't have a grasp of gamesmanship.
