What do you buy for a die-hard sports nut? Good question. Since Kelly and I are pretty clueless when it comes to sports, I asked a Toronto-based sports lover to chime in on what he, and any other sports aficionado would love to be gifted this year. His love (obsession?) for all sports from baseball, hockey and squash to tennis, football and golf truly makes him the perfect authority on this topic. Who is this sports lover? My brother, Eric!
After months and months of sitting on the sidelines, the day has finally come: I’ve been asked to write a blog post. My sister has always ridiculed both the content and grammar in my writing so I was not sure I would ever pass the literacy test required to write a guest post. Fortunately for my dream, her lack of expertise in the sports arena has surpassed her fear of my incomprehensible ramblings…here we go.
1) This is the year! The Toronto Blue Jays have made some big off-season player acquisitions and are sure to be the talk of the town come April. For under $15 you can get your very own seat to watch the action live. Nothing says I care more than a day at the ol’ ball park.
2) Every die hard sports could ramble off a list of their top 5 sports movies of all time in about three seconds. I have been personally touched by the likes of Happy Gilmour, Slapshot, Rocky, Major League 1 and the greatest sports movie of all time: Rudy. Having Rudy in personal collection allows me to hide away in my cave and bust out a good tear session when I’m home alone, and nobody will ever know.
