I am a soccer mom. All three of my kids play the sport. Two of them, and hubby, are game officials. Youngest will likely take referee training by the end of the year.
Youngest plays sports year round: soccer in the fall and spring; basketball in the winter; baseball in the spring. It's about 45 weeks of sports a year.
My sports could be driving and spectating at practices. I never played sports. I can barely ride a bike or swim the length of a pool. I've very uncoordinated and never enjoyed sports. I have a hard time walking and chewing gum at the same time, much less playing on a field with others or swinging a racket or club in order to actually hit something.
Husband is a big sports fan and golf geek. He has been to several PGA tournaments, including the recent Ryder Cup here in Illinois.
The Olympics amaze me; such dedication and grace. Oh to have a fraction of that kind of talent.....
