FUN MONDAY - SPORTS
more participants here with Heather's Recipes
Heather proposed this topic : Sports. More specifically, the sports team that you are rabid about and make you cry tears of joy when they win and tears of sorrow when they lose. And on the flip side, I also want to hear about the teams you love to hate and why you hate them so much .... And if you don't like any sports at all, I don't know what to say to you. Tell us something else you are impassioned about.
I am not a sports fan at all and even less when it comes to sports which attracts hundreds of people in a stadium where they all behave more or less histerical and loose minds. I live in Europe where football (soccer) creates the most of hysterie. People get absolutely crazy and even kill each other if they are not for the same team. We had a game here in Brussels in the Heysel Stadium where 39 people lost their lives because they were trampled to death.
The only sport I like to follow is on TV together with my cat Arthur. He loves Tennis, Golf and even football (soccer)
When he watches a Tennis match I see him following the ball with his head which he turns left, right, left, right. If the ball falls down he would look on the floor to see if it is there. With football it is the same. But when it comes to golf then he really gets excited ! He follows the ball and the swings and beats with his tail and when the ball finally falls in a hole he jumps on the TV unit and looks underneath. He has some "technical" difficulties to squeeze himself under the cabinet because he is quite big (not fat he would say) When he can't find any ball there he is very disappointed but ready for the next game.
So I support cat Arthur when he watches sports but so far he didn't cry tears of joy or tears of sorrow when he couldn't find the ball. Only I have tears of laughter .
This is Arthur watching sports on TV
A fervent supporter !
Looking for balls
and finally exhausted !
