watching the basket
suddenly, i am enjoying watching basketball. amazing. only at this advanced 'age' do i have the patience to sit through a game and actually appreciate the sheer talent and skill of the players. ive never been into basketball. the only sport i got into in high school was volleyball (of course). now, of course, i enjoy badminton. i guess my badminton playing opened my eyes to appreciating other sports (like tennis). i know how good it feels when i play well, when my footwork is right, when i catch the opponent off guard. and how it sucks when i lose. i have learned what practice could really do to the skill. and how amazing talent could be! so it's easier for me to use that framework and look at other sports... like basketball.
i dont consider it a sexy sport. man, those oversize shorts and jerseys don't do justice at all. so i am hardly distracted when i watch. even the really good looking ones, well remain just good looking. i watch out for skill. i am newbie so i dont really know much yet. but it's getting to be exciting... i just dont know if this is sustainable. hahaha.
