My Sports Made Me Soooooooooo Sad

Those of you that have been reading my blog for a while know that I LOVE the San Antonio Spurs. At 5:43 today I received a text from the Spurs (yes, I subscribe to their texts) that Manu Ginobili will not be playing for the rest of the season or for the playoffs. This is so devastating to me and makes me so sad. And as I mentioned yesterday I'm slightly in an emotional funk as it is so this is not helping the situation. If you want to know how deep my love for Manu is just click on his name in the label cloud.

For those of you that don't know, Manu Ginobili is my favorite Spurs player. This year he's been battling injuries and he was finally back after missing 19 games. He was even in the starting lineup. Every year for the playoffs I wear my Manu jersey pin. I made it myself out of crafting foam. Yes I'm a dork but my kids love it.

The Spurs are even a part of my family. Horacio is now a Spurs fan and a HUGE Manu fan. And the Spurs have brought my dad and I closer. Not to mention that it helps keep the tomboy in me happy.

It truly is a sad day for me. Just know that I take my sports very seriously. I blog about the Dallas Cowboys and their struggles but I love the Spurs and how they truly represent the definition of team. Sure there are better players than Manu but he along with the other members make a unique and inspiring team. I'm extremely sad right now.

I feel your pain. He's one of my favorite players too and when we watched the Spurs play the other night it just wasn't the same. A few years ago I had the opportunity to meet him in person after one of their games and he was awesome!

I've never met him but it's one of my greatest wishes. Silly, I know but it is.

I have a friend that feels as strongly about the Trailblazers as you do about the Spurs! :0)

It's always such a bummer when a favorite player has to sit the rest of the season. Hoping he recovers 100%!

You were in front of me in roll call, so just dropping by to comment & say Hi!
