They came so close! Oh well, I guess I will root for Kansas City to go all the way now. Cheering and rooting for a favorite team is fun, but I don’t know anybody on the Seahawks, I have never met anybody on the Seahawks, and I have only been to one actual game in my life, and it was a very bad experience because I thought I was going to freeze to death before we got out of there. So why was I rooting for the Seahawks? They are the closest thing to a home team that there is, and it seems like the right thing to do. The truth is watching sports on television loses its fun if there isn’t favorite players and teams that are tracked, read about, scores checked, and excitement if they win and disappointment if they lose. Add to that the camaraderie of friends rooting for opposite teams during a game, and eating fried chicken as well. So this is a cool time of year with the College National Championship football game between LSU and Clemson tomorrow night, I am rooting for Clemson, and then the Super Bowl the first Sunday in February.
I don’t watch a lot of sports on Television, just key games, because it eats up to much time. I watch just enough to make it a special treat, and and a source of enjoyment and camaraderie with friends. So if my team loses, I say, “Awe shucks” next time.
