NOT CRAZY FOR APPLE PIE, HOT DOGS OR CHEVROLET EITHER
Everyone knows that I’m not a baseball fan. Sad, I know, especially since the Texas Rangers are really doing well and I’ve always supported the local teams. Even in bad years, I’ve worn my Mavericks and Cowboys jerseys and defended Dirk and Tony when others gave up on them.
But tonight, when I clicked on my recorded shows and expected to see X-factor and saw the Rangers and Detroit playing ball–well, I have to say I was disappointed.
Sure, I should have known the game would pre-empt other shows. But remember, I’m not a baseball fan. I didn’t know they were playing. Well, maybe at some level I knew they were playing, I just didn’t think about it, or expect it to have any impact on my life.
So, what does that say about me that I prefer to watch an imported Brit. Reality Show with Simon, Paula and a bunch of wanna-be entertainers over the hometown heroes?
Am I shallow?
Wasting my valuable writing time watching–or in this case fussing over not watching–reality shows? Have I lost my perspective on what is really important?
Would love to hear your comments.
