Growing up as a kid my parents used to struggle to get me out of bed, out the door and on to the school bus. The older I got, the more I just wanted to hide underneath my covers. Looking back on my high school career, I can remember several times that my father had to actually drag me out of bed, kicking and screaming, just to get me out the door and off to school.
Needless to say, I was not the run of the mill student, full of school spirit and enthusiasm for the sports and clubs that it offered, although I was in the color guard for a brief stint. Being a member of the school color guard I had the privileged of being whisked away to Jacksonville, FL to go participate in the Gator Bowl and twirl a flag on the field during the half-time show. It was my first introduction to live college sports, which unbeknownst to me at the time, I actually enjoyed. The game? It was the New Orleans Saints against the South Carolina Gamecocks.
As far as high school spirit and attending my non-compulsory high school events, I never seemed to make it — I barely made it to my prom, which I only attended for appearance sake and to have a photo for my family, and to this day I have yet to attend any of my reunions.
As I entered my college career, not much changed although I did purchase football season tickets. (Ask how many games I was in attendance for!) As the years have gone by, and I have “matured,” I have found that I do like certain sports and I have my teams and personal favorites. During the World Cup last year you would have most certainly thought I was full of team spirit. Just about everyone living in Spain was infected with it!
