It’s the day after the Dodgers season ended abruptly. I find myself scrolling endlessly in Twitter trying to fill the void that baseball has left for me. I have tried repeatedly to try to put into words why I’m so upset over the loss but I can’t seem to do it. Maybe it’s the players I have grown attached to from a far. The ones that I have never seen play in person but have spent many late nights watching for the last several years. I know most of their stories as well as I know my own. It’s hard not to when you can easily find something likeable about each and everyone of them.
When I sat down to start this post, I wanted to touch on a tweet I saw on my timeline. It was retweeted a few times by those I followed. It was from a woman who named Kathryn Watson. Kathryn is the White House Correspondent for CBS News. She tweeted something along the lines that she would never understand how people would be so emotionally invested in sports. Just seeing that tweet caused me to roll my eyes. I mean I know not everyone loves sports. I swear, I do. It just surprised me to see someone say that. Everyone has something in their lives they are passionate about and you know, emotionally invested in. For some people like me, it’s sports. It might not make sense to those that aren’t into sports but that’s the beauty of life. Everyone can be all in on whatever they want and that’s alright.
This is probably a bunch of ramblings that don’t make a lot of sense. but that’s all right. I just wanted to sit down and write about whatever was one my mind right now. This is what is kicking around in my mind and I’m more than alright with that.
