Are you a sports fan? A football fan? Would you rather watch or play sports…or avoid sports altogether?
Personally, I prefer to avoid all spectator sports, except when the game includes a grandson. Like last Saturday when Hubby and I watched Grandson’s football squad play against another 6th grade team.
I found it strange that Grandson never touched the football during the game. But as he explained, “I’m a lineman, Grammy. My job is to block the other team, not get the ball.”
The sound of bodies smashing against each other sounded disconcerting. However… “Grammy, those sounds are good. That means our padding is doing its job.”
Grandson’s team won, but I felt sorry for the other team. They played a good game.
Another grandson went out for cross country. In that sport there are no balls to hit, throw, kick, or fight over. No bodies collide with each other. Team members only run.
Now that I can understand.
