And on to the next question.
Sarah Wood said... Oh Sarah...you would know! Basket ball was ESPECIALLY my favorite the year I played for your school. What was that? Sixth grade? (Sorry, but you totally asked for it!)
When I was in Grade School I belonged to a Catholic school that didn't have many students. My graduating class in the eighth grade had a whole whopping nine kids. Seven girls and two boys.
When it came time for sports I was limited because no one else in my class was much interested. My parents were immensely supportive of my need to play basket ball, so they enrolled me in teams at the surrounding Catholic schools that would take me.
In sixth grade I ended up at Sarah's school and that was the BEST year for basket ball. Our coach was a drill Sargent, but our team was awesome and if I remember correctly Sarah and I became quite good friends! I can't tell you how grateful I am to facebook for letting me get in touch with her again.
Isn't that the best part about sports though? Meeting new friends that you might not have talked to had you not been the on the same team? The friendship with my BFF in High School was started during my Sophomore year while playing tennis. One conversation about "Stroking Yellow Fuzzy Balls" sparked a long lasting friendship that hopefully will never end.
Whereas Basketball and Tennis were awesome sports and I highly enjoyed playing them, they were also a blessing to my life.
What was your favorite sport as a child? What was the reason? Was it because you had an awesome team or was it for the socialization?
