Screaming at the TV

Since this is the inaugural blog post on my fabulous new website, I was trying to come up with a topic that was both fun and inspiring—something that would keep you coming back.

So, I decided to write about my passion for sports. Yes, sports. On my writer’s blog.

While the blog isn’t going to be about anything in particular, the posts should give you an idea of what makes me tick. I guess you should know that in this house, while my husband loves sports, I’m the crazed, jersey-wearing, screaming-at-the-TV fan, and this lifelong love affair I’ve had with games has influenced what I write; it’s influenced who I am.

Because, when you break it down, everything is a game.

It’s funny how some people don’t see the connection between the games we play on the field and the games we play with our hearts. There’s not a lot of difference, if you think about it; in the end there are winners and losers, happiness and sadness, elation and disappointment. That’s why the two work so nicely together. That’s what inspires me.

I hope you’ll visit often, tell me what you think, share your own experiences about love, life, and family and please, tell me about a time you screamed at the TV.

      Yep, I can see what you did here with the sports analogy. And I even remember The Rules from a year or two ago. We ‘suit up’ for dates with sexy clothes and makeup, we ‘train’ for courtship with new haircuts, body waxing, exercise. The analogy WORKS.

      But what’s the Stanley Cup, the Superbowl Ring, the World Series? Is it marriage? Or is it something else? I ask this because so many marriages end. A guy I work with claims marriage should be like a sports contract with an option to free agent at the end of like – 5 years.

      Thoughts?

        I don’t know about that five year deal.

        Now, I’m a Mets fan, but I have to use Derek Jeter as an example here. (Hubby will be happy.) Derek and the Yankees, well, they just go together. And even though he could have signed elsewhere, and like a cranky spouse, the Yankees gave him a hard time, Derek stayed. Those kinds of relationships are the ones that have a lot of meaning because they have staying power…in sports and in life.
