From Commentator Ana Hebra Flaster.

ANA HEBRA FLASTER: Papi still regrets losing that game, but I don't. If he'd won, maybe he wouldn't have told me the story that reminded me again of the beauty of a household that allowed all of its spirits to unfurl.

BLOCK: Ana Hebra Flaster lives in Lexington, Massachusetts.
