I love this time of the year mainly because where I grew up, it meant NBA Playoffs, baseball season, and the beginning of summer. The NBA Finals were on today and I wasn’t about to miss Game 7 between the Spurs and the Heat. I thought I would be able to settle for my usual NBA TV Companion online, but this time I couldn’t help myself. I ran to the nearest pub to watch the 2nd half. And yes, I was the only one cheering for the Heat.
It was amazing. And in those minutes as I sat there watching the big television screen, cheering on and clapping like a fool amidst a crowd of strangers, I felt like I was right at home.
Thank God for sports.
