After the last post that talked about me coming out and was serious, i thought it's time to talk about something that is a little lighter and something funny,at least in my opinion.
I had a talk with a friend yesterday and he gave me the idea for this post.
All of us are also sports fans, we all know how much work goes in to a successful team. How teams practice almost 7 days a week and sometimes twice a day, in football,baseball or basketball.
How in the case of basketball we have 40 minutes a game that we need to give it all, run the plays, the defense and everything we worked on the whole week.
But there is something important we all forget and that's superstitions , how every fan has his favorite shirt, pants, hat or something he has to do in order for his team to win,
Also fans on teams I played on have the same ideas sometimes, if we lose a game they can say they forgot to wear what was needed or eat what they always do.
For me it's funny how all of us take such a great responsibility on the game,that we can change the result not by playing better or fighting more, but because a certain person in the crowd did or didn't wear his lucky shirt.
I love that thought, it gives fans a big feeling of been a part of the team and somehow been able to have a influence on the result, In my opinion the funniest thing is that almost every player has those superstition also.
Many players have to wear the same tights every game, the same socks, eat the same food, do the same warm up and so on and so on, i met many players that have weird and strange superstitions and I also have a couple.not weird,but just superstitions.
When I sit and try to think rationally it's just so strange, even the players that play on the court and have a big part of the result and the out come of the game still believe that the right shirt,right tights or right socks can influence the game more then another practice.
Maybe all of us want to have something to hold on to, more then just the work we put in or our believe in our ability, maybe to have something that can comfort us or give us confidence when things aren't going, that maybe if I did everything i usually do in the end things will work out.
I can just say that in this case it doesn't have anything to do with been gay,it's has everything to do with been a human being and just maybe trying to hold on to something bigger and better, but that's just my guess, would be happy to hear any other thoughts on the subject from anyone reading.
p.s - don't know about you, but I'm going with the Saints and Colts this week,hope u enjoy it......
