I like watching sports as much as the next guy. But living life should always come first.
Being a New York sports fan, I have two football teams to follow. I’m a rabid Jets fan, but also follow the Giants. Last weekend, they both faced big early-season games.
So, when my wife said she wanted to take a family trip to the Storm King Arts Center (you should really go there if you are in the NY metro area), I was tempted to beg off to stay home and watch the games. I’m so glad I didn’t. Here’s why, in pictures.
I like watching sports as much as the next guy. But living life should always come first. If I stayed home to watch the Giants get crushed and then see Geno Smith lead the Jets to victory, I would have missed a great day with Amy, Nick, and his friend Jesse (who is one of Nick’s best friends and like another son to me).
Modern-day philospher Ferris Bueller is right: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop to look around every once in a while, you might miss it.”
Be sure you take the time to make these memories. Football can wait. Have a great weekend- and make a memory while you’re at it!
