I’ve never been a big sports fan, except going to BYU football games, and even then I had seriously no idea what was going on. And then I married virtually the world’s biggest sports fan. He likes to watch pretty much every sport on TV and he knows all about every single sport whether he enjoys it or not. In the last year and a half, he’s actually converted me to enjoying a lot of sports, including horse racing.
Since it’s been the Triple Crown (a month ago I didn’t even know what that meant) over the past few weeks, we’ve sat down and watched them. I have never watched it before in my life, and all the sudden I was SO into it! At the Preakness Stakes a few weeks ago I got so nervous, hoping Big Brown would be the winner…And then when he won I was thrilled! Then today came and I was so sure that he was going to win (not that I know ANYTHING…) and then when he lost I was so bummed.
It’s kind of weird that I get into stuff after such a short time and without knowing anything. But either way I’m sad Big Brown didn’t win. Did anyone else watch it? And cheer for Big Brown?
