Are you a sports fan? Tell us about fandom. If you’re not, tell
us why not.
I admire and respect athletes, but I am not a fan of the typical sports like football and soccer. When I lived in the Bay Area I did enjoy watching the Lakers beat the Boston Celtics, but we don’t even have a basketball team in Seattle anymore so I stopped watching basketball when I moved back from Cali.
There was a time when I really tried to be a fan of sports because I had friends who were crazy about football (or at least their bf or husbands were). I had girlfriends who would invite me to superbowl parties that they were throwing for their husbands friends. I even sat through a couple of games, but no matter how hard I tried I always got SO BORRRRRRREDDDD…
It got to the point where “sports fan” got placed at the top of my deal-breaker list along with drugs, tattoos, too many piercings, married before/divorced… Yeah, I was a little picky… I had been screwed over enough times to know that it was time to raise my standards a lot. I actually always had those standards. And I have NEVER in my life ever dated anyone under 20 or anyone who was shorter than me.
In fact, when I first started dating the love of my life I asked him if he was a sports fan. And when he said no I almost jumped for joy… but I had to keep my cool because I didn’t want it to cramp my style, but I assure you, I was jumping for joy inside. We bonded over the fact that neither of us enjoyed watching those sports and getting pumped up and rowdy like “typical guys.”
I do enjoy watching the Olympic Sports especially Swimming, Synchronized Diving, and Triathlon to name a few.
As far as participation, I have NEVER been great at team/ball sports like Basketball, Baseball, Football, Volleyball, Tennis, and Soccer. I guess I never applied myself very hard at those sports because I was so busy swimming.
Do dance, Aikido, Zumba, Mixxedfit and Capoiera count as sports? Then I’m totally a fan!
I am always down to try something new, but I am just better at some things and not so great at others.
Again, I am not hating on team sports or sports fans. Just sharing my preferences with you. Are you a sports fan? Why or why not?! Please comment below to share!!!
It takes a high degree of grit and perseverance to become an athlete.
Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
