I absolutely love sports. Up until I graduated high school, sports were my life. I started playing football when I was about 6 years old. Soon after that I was also playing basketball and baseball. I think the main reason I joined in to these 3 sports was mainly because my friends were doing it. However, within weeks these sports had become more than just social events to me. I began to love these sports. I even began to grow attached to watching these sports on T. V. Today my biggest role models are some of the athletes that play these sports such as, Kevin Durant, J.J. Watt, and Jose Altuve. I do not necessarily believe that sports fans are born. I believe that it just depends on the way you grow up and who you grow up with. It all depends on whether or not you’ve been groomed into a sports fan. There is absolutely nothing wrong with liking or disliking sports. However, most would encourage that they are beneficial and fun. They provide many ways to keep in shape and to keep the natural competitive spirit inside us all burning bright. Lastly, they give us a way to meet new people and in many cases, life long friends.
