ON THE BACK BURNER

Sept. 30

I happen to like professional sports. I loved it when we got box tickets to see MichaelJordan and  the Bulls . I loved it when a friend got us tickets to the Cubs when they were playing at the top of their game.I never caught on to hockey. I didn't yet appreciate soccer when I lived in Chicago. I never got to a professional football game, but I loved watching them on TV. I can't understand the Indie 500. You go around in a circle.I must be missing something. Our son in law had some official capacity with some motor cross events. One was taking place near us, so we went. It was really fun. Those motor bikes jumped and twirled and bounced all over the place. The stadium was filled with family groups. I can't forget about running events. I like those short ,fast breaks when the gun goes off, in high speed races. TV lets you see the intensity on the runners faces. There is something graceful about pole vaulting. I like water sports too.I hate it when I swimmer jumps the gun. That has to be so embarrassing.Maybe I like these sports because I actually can't play them. I can't hit a ball with a bat,I can't make a basket in basket ball. I never felt that I had enough power to return a ball in tennis,I would fall on my face playing soccer. I am afraid of motor bikes, so that wouldn't work and how do you even pole jump. I have only one good swimming stroke. I call it my country club stroke. Side stroke and your hair only gets wet on one side.
