Life of a Blogger is a weekly meme hosted by Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat. Each week Jessi chooses a topic (scheduled in advance) that’s not book related so we that we can get to know our fellow bloggers better – and to know more about them than just books. I’m thrilled to join in and I hope to participate every week from here on out. I hope you’ll join in too – check out the details here!

This week’s topic: Favorite Sports Teams

I am not a sports fan. I think my problem is two-fold: 1- this guys (and some gals) make an exorbitant amount of money and that just seems so wrong to me. And 2 – I don’t want to watch someone playing a game, I want to play it!

Now there’s some sports that I will never even want to play – they’re the “violent” ones. By that I mean, not that they necessarily promote violence, but it seems to me that all that’s really happening is people having an excuse to hurt each other while they move a ball around. Yep, I’m talking about American Football. Same goes for Rugby. And don’t even get me started on boxing! Have you seen the blood? That is not a sport!

The sports I would – and have – enjoy(ed) playing are pretty much all the rest. Basketball, tennis, and swimming take the lead. They are really the only sports I’ve ever enjoyed watching too. I think tennis because I WISH I could play it like the pros do. I love tennis, but suck at it. Swimming because I’m actually a good swimmer and WISH that I’d spent some quality time training to be a GREAT swimmer at some point in my life. And basketball because I know I have no hope of being good at it, but it’s a really faced paced game and can actually be fun to watch.

In fact – if I’m being totally honest (and why wouldn’t I be?) – there was a time about ten years ago that I was a pretty serious fan of the Dallas Mavericks. I won’t pretend that it had nothing to do with one of their (then) star players, Steve Nash, or that they were playing REALLY WELL. But that was pretty much a one season thing and then before you knew it, I was bored again.

This was how Nash looked when I watched the Mavericks playing…

What can I say, I tried, but I don’t like to watch sports!

What about you? Are you a big sports fan?

      LOL I was thinking of the super bowl when I wrote this post and I realized, I can’t even remember the last time I watched the super bowl for the commericals! To be fair, I don’t really watch much of anything on TV…
