Team Spirit

"Sports are the reason I am out of shape. I watch them all on TV." - Thomas Sowell

It seems like everyone has that one type of show or a certain channel that they watch the most. My dad has joked before that our family is like that. He and my mom watch a lot of HGTV, my brother and sister-in-law watch the Food Network, and Dave and I...well, we watch a lot of sports.

I know some girls (and even some guys) who would run screaming from that prospect, but I actually don't mind. (Although I will say that I'm thankful Dave isn't interested in watching EVERY game of
EVERY sport that's shown on TV!)

I learned a long time ago that one of the best ways to spend time with my dad was to curl up on the couch on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon and watch the game with him. I learned quite a bit from watching sports with him, and I'm glad that I did. I may not be able to give you a solid description of how an "offside" in football is different from an "offside" in hockey, but at least I have some idea of what I'm watching!

Like my dad, Dave enjoys having someone to watch with, and I'm glad he considers me a worthy companion. Go team!

My name is Rachael. I went to a State game. I liked it. Is that bad. I'm starting to crumble.

Well, whenever the game goes bad, you can always take some pleasure in watching John get angry...

Welcome to the dark side, Rach! (It's not that bad -- I promise!)

It was, after all, the Wolfpack... :-)

Rachael is totally lying. I kept having to poke her to get the glazed-over look off her face. : )
