Slowly over the years I seem to have lost that zest for sports. That focus on what all the local teams are doing. After a brief flirtation with hockey years ago, that fell away. Football, it seems to me, has always taken itself too seriously. This is even worse in a Belichek town. Though I have watched some in recent years, basketball too has lost its flavor.
Now I’m worried about the last sports passion: baseball, which seems to be teetering. I can’t explain this. Age? Not likely. Not an issue with others. Other interests? Sure, I have new interests and a deeper interest in others of long standing. And if I don’t exactly have a lot of leisure time, I have more than I used to at least.
No, I just can’t figure it out.
