What do tennis and FBS football have in common? For one thing my tennis partner and me. For that matter, there are a lot of you out there who love their alma mater and its football team AND playing tennis!
My close group of friends and I often talk about our alma mater’s sports teams, sometimes to lament and sometimes to cheer. So many schools are represented, Alabama, Baylor, Kansas, LSU, Mississippi St., Texas A&M, Texas Tech, TCU, and UT, to name a few. We all know the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. And though we are not actually currently playing for any of our college teams (or in the case of football NEVER did!) we watch them and root them on as if we are!
I even have an app that keeps me up to date on all the scores when I can’t watch. Imagine though when my favorite team is scheduled to play my tennis partner’s favorite team and both are undefeated going into the game! Well that’s just what happened this Saturday and has for the past 4 years. Alabama played Texas A&M in Alabama. I Roll Tide and she is AGGIE all the way! We both proudly sport our school spirit with logoed tanks, coordinating skirts, Wristpect Sport wristbands, hats and logo dampners!
We shared our team spirit on the court and off. It just doesn’t get much better than that! Did I mention that we won our match?
So now you know what tennis and FBS football have in common-people like us who love sports!
