The family wanted to watch the Olympic trials. They complained and grumbled because I preferred to watch Secret Civilizations, a show about Mayan culture. I squeezed the remote to get a better grip on it. Ambushed! Believe it or not, they actually cheered after they wrestled the remote from my sweaty hands.
My taste in TV shows doesn’t always please my family. You can’t deny that my choices inform and entertain, although we tend to disagree on the definition of “entertain.” I usually bypass most TV sports, but since our family has two sports enthusiasts plus another child who sides with them—I’m outnumbered! I do plan to watch the actual Olympics and if I found a show about one of these events, maybe we would all watch it:
The video’s number one sports event, the cheese roll, is outrageous! Someone created a “sport” where participants chase a wheel of cheese down a hill. What’s the prize—cheese? I’d willingly give up the remote if any one of these events showed up as a TV sports show. What do you enjoy about watching or playing your favorite sport?
