As for me, I'm not really obsessed with anything involving sports for a few reasons:
1. I don't understand sports
2. I don't care about understanding sports
3. I'd rather gossip than watch the game
Though the current baseball season has just begun, I've already attended my fair share of games and really have not spent much time paying attention to them. I have actually spent the majority of my time complaining about being in the car for 3 hours.
Things I do enjoy, however:
1. Drinking beer (just one, considering they cost approximately $1,234,158)
2. People watching/critiquing
3. Staring at buff men in tight pants
4. Clapping and giving high-fives
So, each year I choose a worthy player to declare my "Reds Crush" for the season, which gives me a reason to look forward to watching a game I know I will be watching whether I like it or not. This year, I have bestowed the honor upon this fine specimin:
His name is Laynce Nix and he is soooo adorable. And cute. And really muscular. And I was there when he hit his first homerun EVER.
The best part of this story is when I broke the news to my husband that I had a teenage-esque crush on another man.
Me: I just decided that I totally have a crush on that guy.
Me: Layne Hix.
Husband: Are you crazy?
Me: Yes. Crazy in love.
Husband: No, I meant like are you crazy because you have a "crush" on someone who's name you just completely butchered with your words. It's L-A-Y-N-C-E N-I-X.
Me: Right. Of course. That's exactly who I have a crush on.
