Fanning Sports

Daily Prompt: Fandom

Fanning Sport

It is not that I am not a non fan of sports and not that I am a big fan of sports I guess sports just are. Being a true-bred Canadian, hockey, has always been a part of my life. Sometimes I love to watch and other times I find it frustrating with all the hype.

As a mom of four I have had my kids in many different types of sports from gymnastics to swimming,soccer, dance, trampoline and karate. All of this was just for fun. I found problems would begin when some parents began to take a children’s sport too seriously and would become so zealously involved that became rude sometimes to other players or players’ parents and then the fun left. The sport of it just turned to anger left me sad for the kids.

In observing sports through the years, I have always been so impressed on how enthusiastically a city or community can come together to cheer on their favorite team whether a high school, college or city even a country cheering for their own favourite Team such as in the World Cup or the Olympics.

What really frustrates me though is seeing that community enthusiasm and team spirit turn into rage and anger when they believe that a ref has made a wrong call or a team mate has let them down. Where do people find such rage over such a meaningless event That has no bearing on anybody’s well-being nor on the welfare of our world?

I will end with this with the simple advice that I have always told my children when playing a game: When you’re no longer laughing and having fun but rather getting frustrated and angry with people you were playing with, it is time to end the game.

  2. Good words you give to your children – it’s not about winning or losing… really it’s the same in all aspects of life… Have a lovely weekend, Easter!


    • Hey Christy, Thanks for the comment – still in and out of the hospital, unfortunately, but it gives me a lot of time to think. Does a lot to change perspective on priorities. I hope that you are well and smiling. I miss reading your writing, so I will be trying to catch up.

      Big hugs,


  3. very important lesson, “it’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game”


I love and appreciate feedback. Feel free to let me know what you think. Bless you lots, Easter Ellen
