Sports fever

I used to hate sports. I still don’t exactly see myself playing them, but my feelings about watching games have changed.

I love the atmosphere in a packed stadium, the crowd singing, chanting, and moving in unison as they support their team. The crazed frenzy that comes with a goal, or a home run – jumping, screaming, yelling, cheering, hugging.

I even love watching games in bars with my friends, as long as we’re there in support of a particular team. It’s not so much fun when our teams lose, of course, but there’s still that spirit of solidarity. And when we win, the atmosphere is almost as good as if we were actually there! I had so much fun watching France beat England in the rugby, and the fact that we were all entering into the spirit of it – standing for the French anthem, rising involuntarily to our feet at exciting moments, cheering and yelling support at the screen and each other – made it one of those happy times I’m keeping track of on this blog (and trying to complete now before the fast-approaching deadline!).

United support of a sports team. Who would’ve thought? It just makes me happy.
