Sports!! We Just Can’t Get Enough!

Hi friends!! Happy Friday!!  Hallelujah, the weekend is here! It has come at the perfect time because I am in need of a little break.   What about you guys?  How has your week been so far?  I got off work a little early yesterday and thought I would go home and finish getting our house organized… I was so wrong.  I went home to take a quick “nap” before attempting some cleaning and awoke 4 hours later.  I got up and ate dinner and watched the Preds game 😦 then went back to sleep a couple hours later and slept straight through the night.  I guess my body just really needed the rest.  I am feeling well-rested and ready for a nice weekend.  

As you all know by now, my family is really into sports.  I grew up going to Titans games, Predators games, minor league baseball games, MLB spring training, the list goes on and on.  As much as I like attending sporting events, I am definitely not the athlete of the family.  I grew up playing soccer, softball, basketball, swimming, and cross country, but truly, I was never really good at any of them (and I didn’t really care ;)).  I played sports for the social aspect and the exercise aspect… definitely not the competitive aspect.  My sister was the pro soccer player and my little brother is the pro hockey player… you do not want to be in the car with them after they lose a game. 😉  

Anyway.. the last few weeks have been filled with lots of sporting events so I thought I would show you a few!

My dad and I went to Bricktops for a quick dinner before the Predators game.  I got a delicious spicy tuna roll and a kale and quinoa side salad.

This was the second round of the playoffs… I will say the playoffs were a whole new experience compared to regular season games… the crowd was standing almost the entire game.  It was reallly fun!

Nashville’s minor league baseball team, the Nashville Sounds, opened a new stadium recently and we hadn’t been yet.  My husband had a tennis match he couldn’t miss so I took my mother-in-law, my dad, and my little brother last Thursday.

The weather was just perfect!  This little boy LOVES getting pictures with the mascots.  My dad joked that we could make a whole book of pictures with my little brother and mascots from teams around the country.

Reba, Johnny Cash and George Jones decided to show up too. 😉

After a few innings, this little dude got bored so we walked around and decided to play mini golf.  They have a little course in the stadium, which is really nice for families with kiddos who can’t sit still for an entire baseball game.

Each hole was uniquely designed.. this guitar shaped one was my favorite!

As my dad always said growing up, “It’s a beautiful day for baseball!”  And last Thursday it sure was!

Riley wants you guys to know that he is rooting for the Preds to win the Stanley cup… that game last night was a little hard to watch, but I am glad we at least made it to overtime.

Thank you for letting me ramble on and on about how much my family just loves sports.  I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!! See you guys next week!!

Questions:

  1. Did you play any sports growing up?
  2. What professional sport do you watch/attend games most often?
  3. Any fun plans for the weekend?
