A void in my life – SOLSC Day #13

I miss sports.  I hope that I don’t sound insensitive.   I don’t want people to be sick.  I want a healthy nation.  But, I miss college basketball, lacrosse, and NHL hockey.  Every night, the television is on (even if it is in the background, which it usually is because of kids’ homework, laundry, and dirty dishes) and basketball, lacrosse, or the New York Rangers game is playing.

I LOVE sports, but sports is not my life.  I’m not even sure that people who know me from school or in my community know how big of a sports nut I am.  I don’t talk much about sports.  I have told my children countless times that school is way more important than sports.  They play sports, but I stand in the farthest spot away from seeing the field (mostly because I am a board memberJ).  My night is not ruined if they win or lose.  When they lose big games, I tell them that there is way more to life than sports.  I remind them that sports are for fun.  They listen to me.  I don’t obsess about sports (although I do obsess a little about good manners and grades, which are way more important than sports – at least to me).

I love watching sports on television because there is drama, sometimes an underdog, and always an emotion tied to the result.  I will watch any sport – even swimming, triathlon, and track and field (not a huge fan of auto racing).  I have favorite teams that I cheer for.  I’m sad when they lose (more upset about them losing than my kid’s team, which I know is weird).  I LOVE when the underdog wins.  Watching a good match, race, or game helps me unwind after a long day.  I hope that sports come back soon, but I also hope that they don’t come back until we are healthy and feeling good.

  1. As a mom of boys and the only female in my house, I feel your pain. All my boys could talk about was the loss of sports. They are not quite sure what to do with themselves. Hopefully, sports will come back soon and provide everyone with a smile

  2. I hear you. I don’t want people to get sick or make others sick. What needs to be done is being done, but that doesn’t make me miss sports any less. So sad that there won’t be “One Shining Moment” this year.

    1. Hi Juliette,

      Thanks for noticing. I tried to use short, choppy sentences to get my point across. The emotions (up and down) drove the entire post (from brainstorming to the final post). Thank you SO much.
