Zaid’s grandma, Mera, is also a big fan. She wears her lucky blue hat and waves a green flag. “Remember, Zaid,” she says, “good sportsmanship is always important, win or lose.” Zaid nods, knowing Mera is right.

The stadium is full of cheering fans. Green and blue flags wave in the air. Zaid and Mera find their seats and join the chants: “Go Green Lions!” “Score a goal, Ron!”
