An Unexpected Saturday Throwback

A few weeks ago I wrote about my waning interest in sports and nothing has changed in that regard since then.

This morning, however, I looked at the channel listings and saw that the University of Michigan men’s team was about to start its Big Ten Conference Tournament semifinal game against Ohio State.

On an unusually cold and dreary Phoenix day, watching the game seemed like the perfect thing to do for a couple of hours. And it was.

I can’t remember the last time I watched an entire basketball game — or an entire game of anything — so maybe that’s why I enjoyed it so much.

Michigan had the chance to win the game at the end, but lost by a point. Sure, a win would have been nice but it didn’t matter.

Despite my post about changing interests, sometimes the old interests come back, even if it’s only for a day.
