Somehow, we have a jock in our family.

I was not “athletic” in high school. I lifted weights, but team sports were not my thing. I remember trying out for the basketball team and basically being told I was too short and that was the end of that.

The Offspring, however, is athletic from the word go. He loves watching sports too. Which is an adjustment for me because I don’t.

As William Gibson once wrote, I have no team sports gene. Maybe, like a lot of other things, it skips a generation.
