The Sports Crush

13 Jan

My family watches a lot of sports.  Well, my brothers watch a lot of sports and then my mother and I ask, “So…is there a shot at watching Downton Abbey tonight?”  Usually the answer is…the sound of the ESPN theme.

This means when I’m home I spend a lot of time watching sports.  Years ago I developed a way to make this sports time interesting.  It’s called—the sports crush.

A sports crush is a crush on one of the players on the screen you are currently watching.  A sports crush gives you a team and a player (and possibly a new life) to root for.  A sports crush allows you to annoy your brothers and father by declaring your newfound, undying love for said crush. “But Daddy, I love him!”

My previous sports crushes have included but are not limited to:

    1. Andy Roddick (the fauxhawk!)
    2. Andy Murray
    3. Dwight Howard and his massive shoulders
    4. Kyle Korver

After this recent Christmas break I am adding a new sports crush to the mix.  Drumroll….

Chris Paul!

He’s adorable.  And talented.  And his twitter picture is old school.  I couldn’t ask for more from a sports crush, really.  If you doubt me, just watch this adorableness…
