Somehow right around the time my son was born I stopped having any interest in watching sports. I wasn’t a huge fan before but went to a big football college and had always watched some. In between having better things to do with a new baby and starting to understand how commercialized it all was, and how players were treated like gods even though many of them behaved poorly — I just had no more interest. Fortunately, my husband isn’t a huge sports fan either. He’s watching more now than he used to, but it’s still not like many people who are glued to their TV all weekend.
