I have friends who love tennis. I have more friends who are into golf. When they ask me why I don’t care about these sports, I tell them that I just don’t care for individual sports.
Don’t get me wrong. It takes a lot of skill to be an athlete in those sports. It’s not that I don’t appreciate that, but for me, sports has always been about the team.
Growing up, all the sports I played were team sports. Basketball, football, softball — all of it were team sports. I think for me the enjoyment of achieving a goal together is what makes me enjoy team sports. It’s just so much more fun to watch and play when a bunch of individuals come together to be one.
