Like most people, as I get older, and the world in general continues to change and morph into something that would be unrecognizable when compared to my childhood years, I find myself becoming nostalgic for what, in my warped sense of reality could be considered much more simple time. There are several ways in which I could have directed a blog like this but, today I'd like to focus on sports. I'm specifically interested in hearing about your fondest sports memories dating back to the most formidable years, between maybe age 6 or 7 through your teen years. For me I'll use 1976 - 1987 as my base years. That should give everyone a clue as to how old I am. What was it that made you the sports fan that you are today? Lets hear your stories.
I wont go into great detail, just yet but, some mine include,
- One specific trip to see the Yankees play the Red Sox at Yankee stadium in 1977
- The amazing Stanley Cup run that the New York Islanders made from 1980 - 1983
- The Dallas Cowboys teams of the 1970s
- The 1980 USA Hockey Gold Medal
You get the idea. Lets have some fun with this and for those of us who are a little older, I think we will begin to see how much times have changed.
