Know and Tell Friday(9/5/08)

1. Do you live for the start of college football? professional football? Does anyone in your house? Do you know anyone who does?
Personally I don't live for it, I do enjoy it from time to time but I don't mark the days off on my calender or anything like that.. My DH OTOH LOL.. not only him but my dad and brother seems to be big fans also.

2. Did you go to college? If so, what was your mascot? Was/Is that your favorite team? If not, what was/is your favorite college team?

Yes and yes.. Yes I did and Yes it still is my favorite college team..

3. Have you ever embarrassed yourself at a sporting event? Have you seen someone else embarrass themselves at a sporting event?

Only while playing and messing up a play LOL.. not so much as a fan, though I do get into the games and cheer and yell and enjoy myself.

4. What is your favorite spectator sport (the one you love to watch live)?OH me.. you know a few years ago I would have answered this one like so, , Volleyball, Basketball, then football to watch on TV baseball gets to long and puts me to sleep. but as far as sport I Like to play Volleyball would be top. Now my favorite spots to watch are the ones my kids are in. If they are playing I love watching.. Even if I have to sit hours outside in the 100 degree heat at a baseball/softball field.

5. Do you have a sports hero? If so, what makes them special?

No I do not. There are alot who I think are great, but none i would say are hero's to me.

6. What's the most memorable sporting event you have ever watched on television? watched live?

OH I don't know.. but I think watching Phelps swimming last month was pretty memorable.

7. If you have kids or grandkids, do they play sports?

LOL do my kids play sports LOL.. Sports is what puts the busy in the mindless chatter of a busy mom :)

Lets see.. Princess has done gymnastics, dance, and soccer those she doesn't do anymore.. As of now she plays not one but two fastpitch softball teams, one is a league team which plays in the spring and the summer and the other is a year round tournament team(both teams are travel teams, I guess at this point in her life all her sports are travel sports) She is also playing school Jr high volleyball in the fall and she plans to make the basketball team in the winter(she has played school 5 and 6 grade basketball the last two years and before that played rec basketball from 1-4 grade) hummmmmm and it seems I'm forgetting something but I don't know what. Oh academic challenge but I don't think they call that a sport.. though I get just as excited watching there team at the AC matches LOL.

Mr Man in the past did soccer but skipped out on it after breaking his arm playing.. he is talking about picking it back up in the spring when they do indoor soccer.. He also plays basketball and baseball and he loves to fish and where I never thought of that as a sport there are people who do.. so I'll count it for him also.

Sweet Pea has done dance and gymnastics and t-ball and I think she is planning on doing basketball this year also since it is the 1st year she is old enough.

Little Man at only 3 years old has done all of these if you count doing them sitting at each and everyone and watching his sister and brothers :)

There you have my Know and Tell Friday post.. Now head on over to Everything's Coming up Daisies if you would like to play along.

Thanks for playing this week! I enjoyed reading your answers. I was also surprised at first when I saw your initials listed there, because they are the same as my first and last ones. It kind of caught me off guard for a second.

Have a great weekend!

Great meme, I'm learning more about you all the time. Things are getting a bit better around here although we are still in a bit of shock over losing Buddy. I will be praying for the family that lost their oldest son. So sad. God is in control but it sure is hard to understand sometimes isn't it? I guess it's not meant for us to understand just have faith.
