All eyes for it

This is actually not my first post on sports. I did make a comment on Australia Open early of the year. I love to watch tennis matches and my favourite man and woman tennis players are Roger Federer and Justine Henin (unfortunately Justine suddenly retired from professional tour this year).

I have to admit I got the sports watching genes from my mum as through her, I grow fond of watching basketball, badminton, swimming and athletic sports. However due to other family members that are fighting for television channels, she seldom has the time to indulge in watching sports in recent years. She was complaining to me the other day that she was the one paying for the ASTRO monthly bill and yet she did not have the time to watch it at all. Poor mum!

Back to sports. Tonight is the opening ceremony of Beijing Olympic Games. As mentioned in an earlier post, I am looking forward to the much anticipated Olympic Games. I may love watching sports, but unfortunately I am not a very sporty kind. In schools I were not an active person, only joined badminton club. During those days, badminton fever was all around us and everyone was taking up badminton either as a sports or hobby.

There wouldn’t be any late night watching during the Olympic Games as I wouldn’t want to look like panda, showing up like one to work every day. I will just catch up with what ever shown in television in the evening, provided my little gal permitted me to do so. It is getting harder to watch our preferred channels each day as we need to reason with her. Most of the times she wins and we just let her watch her favourite cartoon channel.

Hubby is also influenced by me as he starts to enjoy watching tennis matches with me. I told him that one day I would love to visit any of the Grand Slams just to feel how it is to be sitting in the arena with thousands of people watching 2 players playing. Don’t you think it is going to be a fantastic experience?

I hope I can go to feel the atmosphere at French Open and Shanghai Master Series (top 8 men & women players) one day. The latter is easier I guess...
