Base of Hope

4 Nov

I am a sports person, er… the kind who likes to watch all kinds of sports, and not the kind who actually plays it.  I never had the strength or the stamina required to play any sports.  You know, a girl of small stature who can’t run around for more than 2 minutes can hardly be any selector’s choice!  Anyway no regrets there, whatsoever!

Initially I was attracted to the sports just for the black and whites of it [the winning and the losing].  Later though I started enjoying the unpredictability of it.  Believe you me, the sporting surprises are something that I have actually begun looking forward to.  It is no longer about Who would win! but more about Anyone can win!

Indeed, anyone can win!  I have won, too!!  My victory is to have had the pleasure of witnessing some monumental sporting surprises, despite being the kind of “sportsperson” that I am!!!

  • Chicago Cubs! [After a century and 8 years???  Say whaaaaaat!!]

  • Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Championship 2016!  [First ever??? So I hear]

Both the winning teams above were behind 3-1.  Cleveland is common in both the teams above.  Go figure!

  • Leicester City Football Club: the current reigning champions of the Premier League! 2016  [One more First Ever!!!]

  • Portugal UEFA Euro Cup 2016 Champion!  [Another first ever!!!]

  • Monica Puig, Rio Olympics Tennis.  [First ever GOLD  for Puerto Rico!!!]

Whether it is from the sidelines, the Baselines, or the recliners; I have enjoyed every sporting surprise with tears of surprised joy.  And so, as long as there is sports and its surprises, it shall remain the Base of my hopes!!
