"We are inclined to think that if we watch a football game or a baseball game, we have taken part in it” J.F.K.Recently (a little over 4 years ago) I started playing soccer. It was mostly a "turning 40 thing" which ended up being even more life changing than ticking off another decade mark, and it gave me another perspective of why people play and care about sports. I learned about competition, team-work, comraderie, sister-hood (I play in a women's league). I am understanding what makes MY teams click (or not). So then, regarding professional sports -- I know little about how a particular team really comes together because I am not on the inside...I really believe one has to be in that circle to really know what has to be done. We can all watch and make suppositions and accusations...but what does that really do? So WHY then do all these people feel it is the end all, be all to let me know how a team should be coached or run? I guess I will never understand...if anything, it is even more entertaining than the game itself!
Well, time to stop bloggin' and get back to espn360.com...I think there is a Bundesliga soccer replay I haven't watched! (and thanks to J.P. for the photos!)
