It’s that time of year again and here in Denver sports fans are rejoicing. Family and friends are gathering around kitchens and flat screen tv’s across the state baking up hot wings and loaded potato bites. They are preparing their own versions of dips and sauces for nachos and veggie platters (recipes to follow!). All this because for the second time in three years, the Colorado Rockies are headed to the playoffs and beyond that, the rookie head coach from New England has led our beloved Denver Broncos to three consecutive wins which places them as an undefeated team in the National Football League!
As a huge fan of our local sports franchises, I can’t think of anything else that would make me happier than to bring my son into this world the year we sweep the World Series, the Super Bowl, and who knows, maybe the Stanley Cup!
Driving down the highway this morning that exact thought hit me like a ton of bricks. Had there not been a basketball posing as my belly the tears that suddenly sprang from my eyes would have provided the absolute certainty that I am definitely pregnant!
Now for all of you that have been privileged enough to see my sobbing outbursts at little things like that adorable cowboy outfit at Dillards or the memory of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill taking home four CMA’s for their duet “It’s Your Love”, this incident isn’t anything new. However to me, it just cemented the fact that I am by far the ultimate sports fan! I dare you to challenge me and my tears of hope any day 😉
