It seems that everywhere I go in this country, and especially where I live, that sports is more than a mild obsession, usually centered around football. I’ve gone to live sporting events and the energy of the crowd is admittedly, infectious. Aside from that, I just don’t see the draw. This is one of those things that I’m not sure if I’m really off about. I guess that I would be since I’m clearly in the minority. I see clients and they immediately want to take the conversation that direction, almost as a greeting. That’s usually followed by a somewhat slightly opened jaw stare when I say that I don’t follow sports.
The part that I have trouble wrapping my head around is the emotional investment. The financial bit also puzzles me, but likely in the same way that the cost of my camera gear baffles others given that I don’t shoot for a living.
I write this as there’s a basketball game blasting in the background where I’m at. I’m glad that I’ll be moving along soon. The volume is deafening.
Sorry that it seems like my posts are mostly negative of late. That’s not my intent. It’s just been kind of a rough few days.
