College Basketball is starting…well, ok…it is only exhibition games! However, that means it is getting close to the Season games for 2013 and 2014. I get so excited as I drag out all my Jayhawk T shirts and hats. I support my teams by the wearing of the colors and since the professional Football and College Basketball seasons overlap. I have my uniform of the day sorted out for me on game days! I warned you in my first post that I was a sports nut!!! 🙂
Here in Florida there are a multitude of Sports Restaurants and Sports Bars that specialize in broadcasting various teams..For example, one restaurant will specialize with the KC Chiefs team games…. while another restaurant down the street will specialize in the Denver Broncos or the New York Jets….and so on. At these restaurants or sports bars you will find fellow fans dressed in the team colors and they gather together to watch their favorite team play the game of the day.
One of the reasons these restaurants and sports bars are set up for a certain team is because Florida is such a melting pot… and unless you are a local supporting the Miami Dolphins or the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and other Florida teams….fans from other parts of the U.S. had no way of supporting their favorite teams along with other fans. Soooo…the specialized restaurants and sports bars sprang up and on any given Sunday…these eateries fly the flag of the sports team outside their establishment enticing fans to mingle with fans of the same like mind.
Now I have a confession to make…..I have attended these eateries on game days and I don’t like the fact that it is so noisy that one can not hear the commentary! When one is an enthusiast, like myself, …. I don’t want to miss anything !! So the Captain makes sure our television sports packages include all the games my teams play. Yes, I know…he is a keeper! And I am going to tell him that right now….
Later guys and gals…..gotta go check the team schedules!
Rock Chalk, Jayhawks! Wink! My favorite sport.
