The sporting life

Now that Wimbledon has ended, I am suffering from my annual melancholy.

wimbledon tennisWhat did I watch before it was on ESPN for two solid weeks?

What did I talk about?

What did I obsess about on social media?

Sigh.

Luckily, this year The Open begins this Thursday at St. Andrews in Scotland.

All the experts are picking 21-year old American Jordan Speith to win his third major of the year.

Yeah… I can totally obsess about that.

The sporting life

I have been verbally spanked by more than one person for my lack of enthusiasm for the World Cup.

I’m not a soccer fan. To become an SSF (Sudden Soccer Fan) because of the frenzy surrounding the event doe not feel authentic to me.

Turns out it’s practically un-American.

Which I’m not watching.

Don’t get me wrong — I truly hope the US wins — but it’s still soccer.

I’m okay with getting the score later.

I love tennis and will be watching as much coverage as my schedule allows.  I won’t verbally abuse you, however, if you have other plans.
