One evening, Mr. Farnum watched old footage of basketball games and soon fell asleep in his chair.
It’s in his dreams where he met a velociraptor who asked to join the Ancient Friends area of the sanctuary. Velociraptor had heard from other dinosaurs that Mr. Farnum was magical and could bring new life to animals. With a smile on his face, Mr. Farnum clapped his hands and there was an explosion that scared velociraptor. When the smoke settled, the both of them were sitting in the seats watching a live basketball game. With wonderment, velociraptor asked, ‘Where are we?’ 'We are at a basketball game in Toronto and you, my friend, are going to be VDOT - VelociRaptor Dinosaur Of Toronto. You will be a reminder for people what it means to be part of team.’
When the game finished and the home team won, VDOT said, ’Thank you, Mr. Farnum, for giving me the chance to remind people that practice and patience wins the game. These players have obviously practiced, practiced and practiced to win tonight. I’m saying this and I don’t even know how I know to say this.’ Mr. Farnum replied with joy in his heart, ‘VDOT, all that you need to know is within you. You too must practice to know the things you know and you too will help others.’ As they entered the gate of the sanctuary, VDOT turned left to rest in the Ancient Friends area and Mr. Farnum headed towards the dimly lit house where his chair was waiting for him...to watch more old basketball footage.
