Blog Prompt: A Favorite Sport
I have not developed my sport talents; I am thrilled that my children are taking to swimming and city-rec sports, as well as basketball (my oldest son). The sport I most like to practice is WALKING! Ha ha, you say. Well, I can get a pretty good work-out with walking. I like walking outdoors in the early morning (alone, of course) and I like walking with my walk-aerobics video. For watching, my sport might be basketball because it's fast and more democratic than football (and less ritualized). It is the sport of small space and intense action. I remember listening to Seattle Sonics games on KIRO radio when I was a kid--why did I do that? I did; it was a type of connection with my father, I think.
