Fun Monday - Passions

This week, Heather asks us to tell about our sport passions, love/hate included. Barring sports, if that’s not your thing, tell about another passion.

At our house we follow 3 teams. The first is the L.A. Dodgers, we bleed Dodger Blue.

We were ecstatic about the addition of Manny this year.

When it comes to college football, USC is our passion. Pete Carroll is great, of course.

My fave is Joe McKnight. Why McKnight, you ask?

Joe was one of the subjects of the book Hurricane Season, by Neal Thompson, and I learned a lot about him, just reading the book. It's become my favorite football book.

For professional football, our team is the Kansas City Chiefs; since we don’t have a local pro football team, we choose them. I’ve already told Bob that I’ll probably follow what ever team drafts Joe McKnight when he goes pro.

While sports are fine, my real passion, after my family, is books. I have a book blog, Loves Books and Tea, which I invite you to visit. I only review books I love, nothing negative, and I try never to reveal the plot. Hope you’ll check it out.

Sadly, I know nothing about the LA Dodgers, but I do have one of their pennants from a holiday we had in the States long, long time ago!

I love books too....[Dodgers are my nemesis team right now ---nothing against 'em at all, but I'm an 'ex resident of Arizona and I love my DBacks! LOL ---Dodgers are going to take them out in the playoffs I fear...if the DBacks don't start winning again.]

Great Sports blog today. Happy Fun Monday.

Ah … brings back mem’ries! My Dad was an avid Dodger fan and I listened (on the radio) to many a game with him … attended a few together also. Once he passed, so did my interest in baseball.
Hugs and blessings,

USC broke my heart last week. Glad to see that your family has some strong allegiances. I'd like to check out the book you talked about.

thanks for playing this week!

I've never heard of Joe McKnight, but you have my curiosity up...I'll be doing some investigating to see what makes him so special to you.

Books? My passion, too!

We lived in Massachusetts for a short time...Our home roots for the Red Sox (when they are not playing the Indians) and my oldest son is a die hard Red Sox fan. It was a sad day at our place to see Manny leave the Red Sox.

We were celebrating he didn't go to the Yankee like Johnny Damon. Glad he moved out of our division...glad you got 'em! He's tearing up the charts!

Thanks for sharing!

I love books have some good ideas!

I'll only agree to root for USC because they are part of the Pac-10. So - if they end up at the Rose Bowl I'll be cheering them on.
