Friend Makin' Monday - Gettin' Sporty!

What a glorious weekend! Sunny & not too hot - wonderful! My daughter is officially a senior in high school - sniff! Went to Zumba on Saturday morning. We had a sub teacher and there were only 4 of us in the class. She broke out the bellydance scarves! I'm the only one who put one on and it really makes you want to move your hips more when you can hear the coins jingling! She claimed one of the songs had movements that were equivalent to 200 crunches! So other than a brief shopping excursion and making an appearance at a family reunion for a couple hours Sunday....we did a whole lot of nothing around the house. And it was nice!

Did I really just use like 20 exclamation points? Oh well.

Friend Makin' Monday - Gettin' Sporty!

1. Are you following the World Cup? If so which team are cheering on? Not following it.

In the words of The Oatmeal......

2. What is your favorite sport to watch either on TV or in person? Hockey! It has the most action (and fights!!) and no one feels the need to pat each other's butts.

3. Which local team (regardless of sport) do you support? The Detroit Red Wings.

4. What is your favorite sport to play? I don't play any with any regularity. Volleyball & badminton are fun.

5. Were you ever in a sports team? Nope. I tried out for volleyball in high school, but since I wasn't one of the popular kids, I didn't make the team. They would have considered me if I went to every game and kept stats and stuff for them. Pfft. Cliques were more important than ability at that place.

6. Have you ever traveled a long distance to see your team play? No. But if I happened to be someplace else and I was able to get tickets when that team played the Wings...I'd be there in my red & white!

7. Do you have a favorite stadium/sports venue you have been to? Ford Field. I've never been to a Lions game, but I've been to every Monster Jam since it opened (the Silverdome before that) and my daughter has danced there at several Thanksgiving Day halftime shows.
here is it peeking out behind Comerica Park - which is also a pretty stadium. Joe Louis Arena is pretty sweet, too.

8. What is your favorite food you associate with sporting events? We normally go to Hockeytown cafe to eat before Monster Jam, so all we get at Ford Field is cotton candy & beverages.

9. Do you have a favorite sporting song? The Arrogant Worms - Me Like Hockey

10. Is there a sporting event you would like to go to in another country? Hmm. A hockey game in Canada? I know there are some rabid fans there, so it would be a lot of fun.

Now it is your turn to go answer them on your blog and don’t forget to come back here and link up in the comments and go and share the FMM love with other readers.
