Last year, I was offered 2 tickets to the Patriots game at the Gillette Stadium in Foxboro. Now, I have to confess, I don’t know the game, but I went anyway because my husband is a huge Patriots fan. It was my first time being in a stadium to watch the game. I have to tell you, being part of that vast audience, the cheers, looking at the players in real life and rooting for your TEAM, I enjoyed every part of it.
The same happened yesterday when we caught the Olympic Women’s Single Badminton game for Gold live on TV. There is so much thrill in watching a live game, cheering and cooing for your team to win.
If you ask me, I would rather go outside and play the game myself than watch someone else play. But once in a while I let myself watch the finals of Euro or Cricket World cup or any sport my husband is crazy about. I have to admit, for a little while, I feel I am part of that team, I want them to win, I cheer for them, I support them. It’s good to be part of a team.
