Miss EL Regrets
I wish I were into sports. It seems so joyful to sink one's teeth into the World Cup, like so many I know. Co-workers are taking days off of work and forfeiting pay just to watch their teams. I think that my need for sports has been quenched by my political scrutiny, but I am so over the "horse-race", what's-the-new-poll-say garbage. It makes me so sad lately that I don't want to bother. I wish I were into sports to fill the void. But it's too late to get into soccer when the World Cup is on.
Watching The Heart of the Game on Saturday was exhilirating, as all decent sports movies are. It didn't open my eyes to anything, but it was nice to have that visceral reaction, where you can't help but make noise with suspense, disappointment, and relief. I'm jealous of you sports fans.
