England Sports

PatriotsI have mentioned a time or two that I love all things sports related. Growing up, my Dad passed on his love for baseball to me. He also enjoyed professional basketball, football and hockey but baseball was his true love. I watched many a ball game with him at home in front of a little black and white TV. When we’d travel to New York to visit my mom’s family, I would tag along with him to watch the Braves play the Mets in Shea Stadium. He even taught me how to score a baseball game in the programs that all the fans used to get for free.

The Braves started out in Boston, moved to Milwaukee and eventually landed in Atlanta which they have been calling home since 1966; the very year I was born. My Dad has loved the Braves since his childhood but he adopted the Red Sox as his second team after the Braves left town.boston-strong-teams-624x351 The Atlanta Braves are in Boston this week, or at least two days of it anyway, thanks to interleague play. Today, my Dad and I are going to watch the Braves V Red Sox at Fenway Park; hence the sports related post.

My Dad tried to teach me about football when I was a teenager. Every Thanksgiving we would go the high school rival game in the morning. One year I started inquiring about the rules of the game. Unfortunately this coincided with the same year I realized that boys were kind of interesting and I did not actually require a ‘cootie vaccination’ against them. Unfortunately, Dad’s lessons about how the offense has ‘4 downs’ to move the ball 10 yards was an exercise in futility as I was distracted by a tall, dark and handsome boy in the stands. He gave up on that endeavor as his once tomboy daughter developed breasts and an interest in the opposite sex.
