A way to survive the empty nest and a "cracked "relationship with a fun daily challenge of new experiences, reflections, sources, and some biblical guidance. I hope this blog which offers a fun journey to survive by trying something new, either vicariously or by doing, will result in a survival tool kit to replace the past familiar doing, giving, and/or incorporating the interest of your child or your long gone love interest, with some new self interest(s).
Day 155 NBA Basketball/Utah Jazz vs Philadelphia 76ers
Jazz vs 76ers
I have never been much of a sports fan but my friend continues to introduce me to
sports. Like anything, familiarly brings comfort and I guess now I can say that
I am merging into a fan! I think basketball might be on the top of the list. Recently I experienced my first professional NBA
basketball game in Salt Lake City Utah-Jazz vs 76ers.
Pittsburgh is a sports town and I have recently tried professional hockey, (Day 91-Pittsburgh Penguins) baseball,
(Day 110-Pirates Spring Training), and football, (Day 95-Going to Steelers Game). However, Pittsburgh does not have a professional basketball team. Watching
NBA basketball was super exciting because it's fast passed action with unbelievable
shots! Maybe I liked it so muchbecause
the arena had one of thebiggest screens
ever! You could see every player's expressionand youfelt as if you were right
in the game.
I really did not have
a favorite team. Since I love to dance, I likedthe name “Jazz” for team Utah, butfeltthat I should have some
allegiance to 76er because I am from Pennsylvania. (I am sure that this reasoning makes real sports fans cringe.) In any event, I
was going to be happy no matter who won but I was glad for the home town win for Utah!
I will defiantly go to another NBA game because they are so
exciting and fast moving. I might have
to settle for a University of Pitt game though.
Remember that in a
race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize. You also must run in
such a way that you will win. All athletes practice strict self-control. They
do to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize.
