How was your weekend, friends?
I got a lot of errands and cleaning done this weekend, I baked, I did laundry, we completely cleaned the apartment from floor to ceiling. It’s a nice feeling of accomplishment.
And of course, we watched the World Series over the last few days.
I don’t know about you, but when I dedicate my heart to a sports team, there is usually a runner-up that I cheer for when my favorite team doesn’t make the cut (in whatever competition). This year, my beloved (Boston) Red Sox just sucked (no other way to put it) and didn’t even make the play-offs. It’s always kinda hard when you witness your team go through a transition, losing (aka trading) important players, firing coaches and changing the dynamic of a team. We’ve been through that before with the Sacramento Kings (NBA) which J and I used to watch religiously a few years ago. These days, not so much.
But back to Baseball.
Naturally, after the Red Sox where out, J and I shifted our attention to the (SF) Giants. And what a team they have become in the last couple of years!
J, a Red Sox Fan since childhood, who played baseball for many years himself is thrilled about my love for the sport. He didn’t really believe it when I said that not only did I love baseball, but I myself played softball on a team in Germany for about 9 years before coming to the US (catcher and 3rd base). I mean, what were the odds, right? I love the sport with all my heart and I wish it was got more recognition in the world. I think it’s slowly changing, but it’s still got ways to go.
Sunday night, the SF Giants won the World Series in a landslide 4-0 victory over the Detroit Tigers and I couldn’t be happier. I am sad that there won’t be any more baseball for a while, but who knows, maybe I’ll get into watching the Kings play basketball again this winter. After all, they’re going to stay in Sacramento for another season.
Do watch any sports? What’s your favorite team?
