I feel like throwing up
I can’t believe we lost last night.
I can’t believe I care.
When did I become a sports fan?
I have no idea, but I am.
Last night I put the boys to bed and sat down with my remote in my hand. I wanted to watch the Heat game. I rolled my eyes. All these damn channels, I can NEVER find the channel I want to watch. Is there some kind of guide or something on paper?!!! Damn!
Then I remembered that Anna called me earlier while I was bathing my sons. I dialed her number.
“What’s up chick?” I asked.
“Just wanted to let you know the channel is 245 so you can support our boys.”
“DAMN!!!! I can’t believe this! I was JUST sitting here mad cuz I didn’t know what channel it was on. This MUST be the Lord.” I laughed.
“Alright, I have to go. I just wanted you to watch the game.”
We were winning at first and I was so happy. Then it was close. Okay, I’ll admit. I wasn’t really paying much attention to the score. I mean, how could I? Have you SEEN those players? Oh my gosh, they are FINE! All dark and lovely and sweaty with muscles. Mmmm… I couldn’t believe it. They look so strong and so rough. Like maybe they could handle a chick like me. I’d love to submit to any one of them.
~singing Tevin Campbell~ Tell me what you want me to dooooo…..
What’s that dude’s name? Dwayne Wade. They spelled his name wrong on the screen a couple of times. He is so georgeous! Like, I would have about 2 or 3 of his babies. The way his muscles rippled as he strode down the court. And did you see Shaq?!! He is so big! When he was guarding that guy it was like, he just stood there. I’m thinking, “I wouldn’t want to be the guy that Shaq is up against.”
But my heart sank in the last quarter. It was so close. So close. It felt like the world was ending as I saw the Detroit fans jumping up and down in victory. Did we really lose? Did Miami, the greatest city in the country REALLY lose?
Now, I had to sit back and evaluate my brand new emotions. What am I feeling? I was born and raised in Miami but before this year, I didn’t give a damn about sports. Well, except for the GATORS BABY! ~realizing~ Wow. This is how I felt about the Gators. Ofcourse I rarely watched a game but when the Gators played I wanted them to do well because I felt like they were representing ME! When they won, I won. When they lost, I lost and I felt sad.
This is exactly how I feel about the Heat. They are MY team representing MY town and ME!
I am so sad. I wish I could give them all a hug to let them know that on any given day we are a better city than DETROIT.
It’s official. I’m attached. We’re bonded at the heart.
Wow. The birth of a fan.
All HEAT players are always welcome at my house!
