Sittin’ Around: Sentimental Saturday

31 Aug

I’m not a huge football fan, but I occasionally watch college football. But, when I know that my son and his friends are at his Alma Mater, the one and only University of Notre Dame, then I watch for sure. I know I won’t see him in the crowd of over 80,000 spectators, but I still scan the seats, hoping for glimpse. We spent many a weekend at Notre Dame. The tradition, sense of camaraderie, and religious mystique fill the stadium and spills over into to the entire campus.

Watching these football games is a sentimental journey, often bittersweet. Good times and happy days gone by, never to be recaptured. I guess that what memories, old photos, and waxing nostalgic is all about.

GO IRISH!!!!!!!

    What wonderful story! I too am not a football fan or sports fan at all to much degree but I will admit to a weakness for underdog sports movies like ‘Rudy’, ‘The Replacements’ and ‘Mystery Alaska’.

      k- I cry every time Rudy gets carried off the field in the movie, or when Kevin Kostner asks his dad if he wants” to have a catch” in Field of Dreams. I’m a big movie fan too. I guess it helps us escape reality for a while. That’s why art, photography, writing and music helps us see the beauty in the world that others may not see. I enjoy your work. Thanks!
