I'm not a sports guy

I'm not sure why it is, but I grew up to not really be into sports. I tried to get into football as a kid, but it never stuck. Baseball had even less of a chance, because it was so boring. Basketball was a little more interesting, and I've been interested in that on and off, mostly at the pro level. So when people talk constantly about sports, I'm totally not interested. This actually might be good for Diana and I, because she's not much of a sports person either.

There are some exceptions. Obviously I love volleyball, and it's a sport that I understand at a very deep level. The problem is, unless you happen to be into the collegiate scene, there isn't a lot to watch. The Olympics offer the biggest show, but they only come around every four years. And if you don't have cable, good luck seeing it on TV. I don't get to play very often.

I'm also into tennis, but that's a pretty recent thing, since meeting Diana. That's more of a year-round thing on TV, and there is plenty of it on cable. I really like to play it as well, but haven't much in the last year.

I can't explain why I'm not into it the way other people are. I think it's because the terrorists won.
