After taking a 3-month hiatus to complete my book manuscript, I'm back on A Child Grows! Strangely, after refraining from writing directly about sports (at least in published form) for pretty much my entire life, this is my second straight piece this month on the subject.
"Strangely, having two girls has made my renewed sports-watching feel somehow new and different. I still refuse to spend more than a couple of hours on any day watching any given game, but I do enjoy using sports-watching, particularly games involving teams I’m emotionally invested in, as another window into their child-lives...This is all to say that I’m learning more about my children, about the sports I love, and about the joys of watching sports in general with every game I share with them. Here are some of the things I’ve learned."
