Sports and Priorities

It took me several days to get over that fact that I was going to miss the 49er Game – Live in person. After all, there is a reason why I own season tickets. For this exact reason: The Big GAME. Listening to Sports Talk Radio actually helped me get over it. It was therapeutic to say the least. I had to come to terms with the fact that Sports is exactly what it is, Sports. It’s entertainment that I’m not getting paid to do.
I’ve a list of priorities in my life, apparently travel and my career ranks higher on my list then sports. Just like what was said in the movie Fever Pitch, “You love the Sox, but have they ever loved you back?” A friend of mine was giving me a super hard time about missing the game, which I have to admit, stressed me little bit. But it was partially my fault for calling him the week before and teasing him about missing a monumental game in which critics have claimed it be one of the top 5 best NFL Playoff Games in History. He was on a family trip.
