One of my resolutions this year (and to be honest almost every year) is to talk more about myself on the blog. Me in a nutshell: I'm a Librarian. I'm a blogger. I'm a reader. Here's a little bit about me outside the bookish world.
I've been sporty as long as I can remember. Everyone in my family is sporty. And my family was very supportive to sports - coming to watch the games/events or picking me up from practice or dropping me off at those dreaded 5 am practices (thankfully we didn't have many of those).
I've tried my hand at lots of sports - some just for fun, but others on a team.
In elementary school, I played midget league. Finally 5th grade came and after school sports became reality. I played soccer, but mostly I lived for the basketball days.

And afterwards I lost heart for the other sports. By my junior year in high school, I wasn't interested anymore.
But I was still sporty. When my husband and I moved into our second apartment, there was a sports field nearby. We played basketball, tennis, and threw a Frisbee in the fields. We'd take our cute puppy on long hikes.
I've been kayaking and snow shoeing
Just last year, I learned to do a crossover!
But we also watch sports. Chris got me into the Celtics and now I too bleed green. I miss Paul and KG something fierce. I'm glad to see that Rondo's back on track. The rebuilding years are hard, but the young guys try hard.
We've been to a few games, some preseason like this one where we got great seats thanks to spotting an upgrade on twitter.
Usually these are our seats:
And the boys I've watched the most games with:
I'm a New England girl, so I cheer for the home teams, even though I may not follow the sport too closely.
And our course I like sporty books too!
Are you sporty? What sports are your favorites?
