As a pay off to my hubby and the young man for all the traipsing around gardens and stately homes etc that they do for me, I in turn accompany them on occasion to watch sport. Now I'm not interested in sport at all. I have not one competitive bone in my body and my standard - often very unhelpful phrase when their teams lose is "Its only a game" - because it is!
I don't go to watch the football any more. Its over priced, cold and boring. I do my bit at cricket in summer. I do enjoy watching the Ice Hockey, but I love going to watch Basketball. Its indoors and warm. Each quarter is only 10 mins long - so it holds my interest. You sit very close to the action - which makes for a good atmosphere. Its fast and they make it entertaining. Its great for families - they play music, give you big sticks to make some noise, and have a commentator. We go often to watch the Sheffield Sharks as we have a friend who plays for them. Recently, the scoring has been very close - infact last week it was anyones game literally down to the last second. I thought the young man was going to burst!
