If I told you that I wasn't a sports nut, and didn't grow up in a sports crazy household, you probably wouldn't believe me. I am not a regular reader of the sports section, and don't obsessively watch sports on TV, I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of team stats.
But going to a live event? I am all in.
I love seeing a group of humans figuring out how to work together and battle for a win. It doesn't matter the sport or level of play - I am there for my kids teams, assorted college teams, the Olympics, World Cups and any team of pros that plays with heart and class. For our family, right now, that means the Washington Nationals. They had the WORST start in baseball, and have clawed back to win the National League pennant Tuesday night.
Team Manager Dave Martinez summed it up best: "Often bumpy roads lead to beautiful places. And this is a beautiful place."
How can I not be all in on this team? So this is why I am behind in...everything, and am falling asleep in my cubicle this morning. My friend Missy thinks I work at the Nats Park by now, my husband and I have spent so much time there lately. I'll catch up soon, but only after the Nats win the World Series :-)
