You’ve Got To Love Fall Sports
Posted by Nancy on November 02, 2010
It’s true that summer was wonderful with all those long, warm and sunny days and it’s also true that a good many of us did not want to see it end. We know that it will be a long time as we move through the seasons before we see that warm weather again. The good news, however, is that it has been a beautiful fall so far with weather that has allowed people to continue with their bike riding, football, running and whatever other sport it is that appeals to them. With the exception of water sports (it’s a bit chilly for that) most of us have been able to continue right on doing those things that we love. In addition to that, the season change has brought back some of the sports that we’ve missed during the summer months. Football is in full swing and the stadiums are full of cheering fans supporting their teams of choice. It’s hard to beat being in a stadium on a cool, crisp day (or evening) with family or friends, treats in hand and watching your team battle it out on the gridiron. As great as summer was, it didn’t offer that particular enjoyment. Now, we’re into the beginning of the basketball season with almost 80 games still to be played by the professional teams. For those who live in cold climates, the basketball season is particularly appreciated as a way to get through those very long months of winter. When it gets dark by 4:30 in the afternoon, it’s nice to have something to look forward in the evening hours and those NBA games are pretty great entertainment. So, while we may still be lamenting the passing of summer a bit, it’s time to jump on board for all the great fall and winter sports that will be with us for the next several months.
