It’s the best time of the year…I say that as I’m in day two of quarantine with Covid watching college basketball.
We’ll get to the Covid in a minute but first, back to the task at hand.
It truly is the best time of the year. I may be biased because I’m a basketball fan but being able to watch hoops at a time when my younger self would be watching The Price Is Right with Bob Barker during a midweek sick day is just the bees knees.
It’s a busy time in the sports world of a newspaper right now and I am very grateful for DAR Assistant Sports Editor D’Courtland Christian running up and down and everywhere around to hit area jamborees while I’m out of action.
In less than two weeks, the high school basketball season will officially be underway.
All of the hard work of the past several months will be put on display. While those athletes in the fall had their chance to showcase what they can do, it’s now time for the winter athletes, in all the sports, to showcase their talents.
Now back to the Covid...
After more than three years of covering sporting events, meeting people from all over the country and a variety of capacities, Monday morning I finally got the news I wasn’t looking forward to only because I knew of the time of the year it was.
Being sick as an adult really puts thing in perspective. It shows you how much you rely you others even if we don’t think we do.
It’s at these times when those around you step up and help out when necessary...kind of like a team.
With the days getting darker earlier and the temperatures getting cooler by the day, remember to appreciate those around you because while it may be your best time of the year, that may not be the case for every person you meet.
