Week 15: Sports

I am re-posting some of my old blog posts to keep the history of my blog alive. This post is from the 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History blogging prompts series.

This post appeared originally on my blog on Apr 17, 2011.

Week 15. Sports. Did you have a favorite sports team as a child? If so, which one and why. Did your parents follow the same teams? Do you still support the same teams?

Sports have never played a large part in my life.  I have never been much into sports but I have always supported my school teams.  Once I went to college, I usually watch the University of Arkansas Razorbacks whenever they are on TV.

As a kid, I remember my dad and Grandpa Thompson watching wrestling and Cowboys football together on TV.  When Grandpa was watching sports (or really any TV but he mostly watched sports when we were there), you did not get up and walk in front of the TV during the show!  You also didn’t talk except of course he often explained how the referee was wrong!

Now, some of the kids play sports so I try to get to their games whenever I can.

52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History by Amy Coffin is a series of weekly blogging prompts (one for each week of 2011) that invite genealogists and others to record memories and insights about their own lives for future descendants.
