I'm really not a sports fan. I played many seasons of basketball, soccer, and volleyball, growing up, but watching sports was never my thing. Although recently, soccer has become something I actually enjoy watching. My ex was a fanatic but would only talk about it to me, never having me watch games with him. Then I started dating someone else and coincidentally, he was a big soccer fanatic as well! One day we watched an FC Barcelona game and I immediately fell in love. The fluidity of the team, the magic that is Lionel Messi (who I established as my favorite player), and the overall entertainment of the way they play the game, captured me completely.
