Sports Fan – What’s your sport to watch?
|June 12, 2012||Posted by Carrie under family|
We are big sports fans here. Number one in our house is College Football. USC specifically.
Number two is Dodger baseball (MMT and I went to a Dodger game on our first date).
Number three is hockey. Kings hockey. Growing up I used to think that hockey was brutal and violent. When MMT and I were dating he took me to my first hockey game. It was 1993, the last season that the Kings made it to the Stanley Cup finals. It was so fun! We even went to see the Stanley Cup on display at some hotel the week of the games.
Needless to say, the Stanley Cup games have dominated the tv in our house this week. MMT even recorded games 1 and 2 and endured radio silence and social media silence in order to not have games ruined before he could finish watching. And, yes he had headphones on listening to game 5 since it was smack in the middle of Dancing Girl’s recital on Saturday.
Thankfully last night, there was no interference and we all cheered on the Kings. Yay!
And, FYI – we aren’t huge basketball fans. We watch, it’s exciting when it’s your home team that’s doing well. Ok, so MMT would probably disagree. He’s a fan. But since my college always has a horrible basketball team, I’ve just never gotten in to it.
And, another FYI – horse racing and show jumping events also merit tv watching from me but I’m alone on that one in my house. Oh, and anything Olympics, too.
An amazing athlete.
