Guess who’s back? Back again…
Yeppers, the Friday Five has been absent for a while…no real reason. But it’s here.
1. Do you watch sports? If so, which ones?
Yes. College football, basketball, and baseball. NFL and NBA. Lumberjack competitions and Strong Man competitions on ESPN sometimes (but not really, just if I happen across them, they’re entertaining). But college basketball is the king.
2. What/who are your favorite sports teams and/or favorite athletes?
Well, obviously any Mississippi State team. I don’t really have a favorite pro sport team that stand out. I used to be a Mets fan back in the 80’s when Gooden, Strawberry, HoJo, Dykstra and all those guys were there. We got a cable channel from NYC way down here and their games were on all the time. But I don’t really like MLB at all now. Used to be a Sonics fan when Shawn Kemp was there with Payton, Eddie Johnson, Derick McKey, Nate McMillan, Detlef Schremph, Ricky Pierce and Dana Baros. The funny thing about that is that I became a fan of them because I always played with them on an old Nintendo game. But the only person left is Nate, and he’s the coach now.
3. Are there any sports you hate?
Is NASCAR considered a sport?
4. Have you ever been to a sports event?
Lots, but not enough. Never been to an NBA game. And there are many of college basketball arenas I’d like to visit. College football stadiums as well.
5. Do/did you play any sports (in school or other)? How long did you play?
Nope, unless you consider church league basketball. I always looked athletic, but lacked the coordination to be decent.
