Two nights ago, my family had an interesting conversation about sports. It all started with my dad asking my brother about the next Blackhawks game, and then it expanded into a general conversation about sports and my (apparent?) ignorance about it. I wish I could have recorded it because there were some golden moments, but then I realized
I CAN DO A VIDEO ABOUT IT. So yeah, this happened:
Actually, though, my brother was quite upset/worked up over the fact that I didn’t know some of these athletes. Especially since I lived in Montreal. He was all like “Ash, if you lived in Montreal, you had to have heard of some Canadiens players! What, did you live under a rock?!”
Me: I didn’t hang around people who talked about that, gosh Chris, give me a break.
Him: Seriously, not even one name?
Me: Okay, maybe but now I’m in America and it’s not as big of a deal.
Him: But still! *storms away*
I don’t know, is sports supposed to be common knowledge? I mean, geez, before living in Canada I didn’t know a thing about hockey outside of the little we learned from floor hockey in gym class. Or am I the only ignorant one? Let me know, dear readers!
Also, I’m going to make another short video about a hilarious part of the conversation we had while we talked about sports. I forgot to put it in the video, but it’s so good that I’ll make another video just for that, ha. So please anticipate that!
Muchas gracias, mis amigos! ~ajc
