As A Spectator Sport, A Bit of a Challenge

(Note: this post has pages, in response to this Weekly Writing Challenge.)

I’ve never been into sports. I’m no good playing them – except Jacks, I play a mean game of Jacks – and was never interested in watching sports until my kids started playing them. Through my kids, I’ve become a soccer fan and I enjoy track meets. Last year, my daughter joined a college crew team. I know zip about crew, as you will quickly detect from this post. For those who know even less: crew teams race in rowboats. There. Now I’ve shared everything I know.

I learned at my daughter’s first crew meet that binoculars are a good idea.

  1. I know what you mean! First cross-country running with my son; then crew with my daughter . . . lots of standing around in the rain wondering what’s going to happen, and ultimately missing it. But what spirit! What excitement! A challenge for crew and onlookers alike. Thanks for sharing your story. I love how you used the prompt and the page-turning to good effect.
