Loved the post about Sports and it got me thinking about how much I have enjoyed watching sports with Spence. It didnt used to be something I would seek out on my own- growing up I would watch hockey because it was on already (John and Jord and David and Dad would have turned it on probably...) but it has been really fun to sit down and watch a game of soccer or hockey once in a while with Spence. Not only does he patiently explain the rules to me (over and over again I think) so I understand what's happening, but he also tells me cool insights about the individual players. So I know what 'offside' means, AND little tidbits like that Landon Donovan from LA Galaxy didnt start the game today because he arrived a little later than his team to DC. He was here in California for his sister's wedding! I like having an insight into the players' lives and it adds more color to the game. I remember Jordan or John trying to sell me on sports one time by saying, 'the game is different every time, you can never really know what will happen because each player is so different and there's so many interactions and plays.' I guess that planted a seed because I certainly am interested in people and what they have learned to do and how they interact. I guess if you were to put a label on it I would be a casual sports fan because my husband loves it and I love him, and I am finding things of interest for myself too!
