I love keeping score at baseball games. One time I was doing this at a high school game and one of my students came over to say hi. They asked about my scorecard and I explained what I was doing. The student responded thusly:

"Damn, miss! You even take notes when you're supposed to be having fun!"

I’ve dabbled with sports writing before and I find it so much fun. I like to get very analytical - even overthinking things πŸ˜‚ - and feel very high and mighty when I spot things others don’t. Then I make predictions based on those observations and find I was miles off the mark πŸ˜‚ still fun!
