I checked in at the Booking Through Thursday blog, which is the host for a weekly book meme or blogging prompt. Here is this week’s prompt:
Do you read books about sports?
How about AT sporting events? (Kid’s soccer practice?)
Both in and out of the pages sports is my weakest link. I’ve never been good at sports. I avoided PE and found validation in academics and arts when I was a kid. Growing up I didn’t want to play the same game as the other guys. I just don’t have that sports gene in me. Now I peruse Men’s Health scrupulously for nutrition and workout tips. The two sports-related books I read were fiction: The Front Runner by Patricia Nell Warren and The Dreyfus Affair by Peter Lefcourt. By coincidence they both involve a gay relationship. As for during sports events, I usually bring a book or two to the dog show and a baseball game.
