Joie de Vivre!

Blog Pen

You can travel all around the world and many things and customs are different. Faucets can turn in opposite directions, people can drive on different sides of the road, and speak with different accents/languages……a thought just struck me though…that no matter where you are in the world, sport plays a big role in day to day living…No matter what season or time of day….

Where I come from it was Rugby, Soccer, Cricket, Golf…here it is Baseball, Football , Basketball and ice hockey….and of course golf. With all the different media at our disposal watching sport, or going to a game is probably a National pastime in most countries…

I love the way that sport unites people regardless of race, creed or color – AND even when they are supporting different teams….

I enjoy how easier people communicate with each other when they talk about their favorite player or when their team scores a goal , or loses to another team…How their eyes light up and their speech becomes animated… What’s more women are just as vocal –even if it is with the extra edge of being able to admire the physique or looks  of a particular player….and I love how young children dream of emulating  the star players…
Few things in life arouse more collective passion than a group of people coming together to watch a match…

How something so simple can create such exuberance and joie de vivre!
