SportsFreaks? yes, that's us.
i was the vice president of the student athletic board - we promoted all of the non-revenue sports on campus - and we were interviewing for new members. and in walks this guy wearing this absolutely horrible gold mizzou hat. through his entire interview all i could focus on was that hat. long story short, he became a member of our group and our paths continued to cross through the various baseball and volleyball games we attended to earn points for the best football and basketball tickets. and of course, the guy ends up being my future husband. go figure. (and you know that one of the first things i did was lose that gold hat.)
our love of sports continued and has been passed along to our children as well. literally. the middle names of each of our children is a street around wrigley field - go cubs! people always think when they hear their names that they are family names, and i'm sure they are, they simply aren't anyone we're related to. now that the girls are both a bit older, it's awesome to watch their love of sports develop. they know that mizzou plays on saturdays and the bears usually play on sundays. granted, trying to explain the rules of football and basketball to a four and two year old is a bit tricky...
with the holiday season upon us, being like minded it's a win/win to find andy something sports related as a gift. in fact, i already have! i like to collect memorabilia for him to go into his "someday office." that would be the space he'll have in a future house that's all his. that he doesn't have to abandon to make into a room for one of our children as he has done in the past. the bears calendar was the perfect gift for him and the rest of our family to enjoy together as i was able to personalize it with our birthdays and anniversary dates, including photos.
i love that sports is what brought andy and i together and it's something that our family - no matter the age - enjoys together now.
