My favorite sport is baseball, and there is nothing better than counting down to opening day. I really can’t wait until my beloved Phillies take the field, and I am listening to the crack of the bat. But until then I am making a point to watch basketball with my husband. I figure since there are only the two of us living in our home, we shouldn’t always be watching different TV programs in different rooms.
It is not like I hate basketball; its just not my favorite, but Chuck is my favorite person to spend time with. Watching the Sixers or college games together gives us another layer of things to add to our conversations.
What have we been discussing?
- Why is Joel Embiid shushing the crowd?
- Why can’t the 76ers win on the road?
- Why do professional athletes complain when the crowd boos? Aren’t they being paid to perform?
- Why can’t Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid get along and “blend?”
Now the answers to these questions are not going to solve world problems, but we like to compare our answers with the sports pundits. Being totally truthful – sometimes one or both of us falls asleep during the game, and we watch the highlights later! Togetherness.
