What's it Gonna Take to Make Me Like Sports?
I am not a sports fan of any type, unless my kids are playing. Then sitting in the stands cheering on my children is a joy! So,it's a real challenge living in a household full of men and boys when you don't share their love for sports! But, I just offer up the fact that I'm bothered by all the constant sports talk as a penance in reparation for all the times that my own obsessions and interests are a nuisance to my family. Listening to the games on TV or radio is a bit more of a challenge to offer up, though, because the noise of the cheering fans really grates on my nerves. I admit that it is fun when the guys get all excited as I reach for the sports section of the Sunday newspaper, thinking that I've finally caved to the pressure and have become interested in the latest baseball stats. I can't help but smile when I hear the unified groan as they realize that I'm only looking for the weather report on the back page of the sports!
But this sports story really made my day, and I just have to share it! Now if Archbishop Dolan lived at my house, I'm sure he could convince me to take up an interest in sports and he would become as much a hero to my husband and sons as he is to me! Check out his latest blog post!
