Just like almost every other red-blooded American male, I love my sports. I love my football, hockey, baseball and the sometimes other random sport I stumble across during channel surfing. Sports in my mind are great because well it sports. It gives families a chance to sit and bond. I think one of the greatest things a family can do is go and catch a ball game. There is nothing quite like a baseball game and a ballpark hot dog.
I am lucky enough to me married to a girl who loves sports too, at least baseball anyways. She loves football too but she is more of a baseball chic. I truly enjoy watching sports and going to the games with her. I have also shared some of best sports memories with her. One was the multiple overtime playoff game when the Stars beat the Sharks to go on and play the Red Wings in the conference finals. That was my first playoff game of any kind. There is also last years Ranger win over the Yankees in the ALCS and even though she beat playing fantasy football with her last year.
My daughter also has the love of sports, she loves to watch the Rangers, Aggies and Cowboys game with daddy. She can name most the Rangers. It makes me oh so proud and I try to cherish all those moments I have with her. I only hope she never outgrows her love of the sports. That way we will always have that to share. I cant wait to start watching sport with my youngest Witten (yes he is named after the tight-end) again the greatness of sports. He is going to be a big boy and I cant wait to watch him in his futures sports endeavours.
Sports are also great because if you are like me then when your team wins or if they are winning. Then you are happy and feeling the joy that you think your team is feeling. But that also brings the low of feeling the loss and just being mad as mad can be when they make a bonehead play. Like a blocked punt for TD to tie the game and then a interception to give the other team the go ahead field goal. But there is nothing like watching any kind of game and eating some grub.
Sports are also one those things most guys can always talk about. Since most guys don't talk about feelings and things of that sort,. But just to get a little off-topic that is where a class like the Quest for Authentic Manhood. It can really help open a guy to being able to talk about more than the just the small stuff. I would highly recommend it any and everyone.
So there you go that is why sports are so great in my mind anyways. Sports make for great family time. Sports make for awesome memories and just so much more. That's all for this time.
