I'm sorry--I can't stop laughing. I even read this one out to my husband. You had me at "No, you moron!. . . Always look for anagrams!"

I think that you pose an interesting question that applies to most aspects of parenting. How much do we, as parents, affect our children's abilities and interests? How much credit or blame do we deserve? I don't even know what to hope that the answer to that question is.

My parents didn't watch or care about sports in my house, either. Consequently, when my husband talks about Big Ten sports, I sort of zone out. We basically agree that we will only watch one football game per weekend during the football season, so that's usually the Badger game. If I'm working, of course, he can watch whatever he wants.

I am soooo happy we don't have TV, but that also means we have to go over to his parents' to watch the games...

This is such a great post! You are a great writer. :) I am also completely lacking in whatever gene it is that makes someone care about the outcome of a game. I’m like, dude, it’s nice to win and all, but it’s. a. freaking. game. I just don’t get it. I was always the dorky kid who was picked last and yelled at in gym class, so I got turned off to sports early on. I do think my bad experiences with sports contributed to my dislike of them, but even without those experiences, I doubt I would care significantly about sports. I just can’t muster up any concern over something I frankly think is trivial.

My husband, on the other hand, is a sports nut. Go figure.
