fred left this morning for his team's first game in lleda, spain tomorrow evening. this is the first game of the season! i wish i could have tagged along, but alas, i will gladly be propped right in front of my ibook unabashedly cheering him on.
never in my wildest dreams did i imagine that i would 'end up' with a professional basketball player. i played soccer growing up and the one year i played basketball, i ran the opposite direction in a game and almost scored a basket for the other team. definitely not my destiny to shoot hoops. but life is surprising and the good Lord has quite a sense of humor. i've learned more about basketball in these past 2 years than i ever knew...which wasn't much! i absolutely love watching fred play, which may have a thing or two to do with the fact that he is my better half, but also i truly believe that to watch anyone do anything they have an immense passion for and an incredible talent at is something quite special.
here's to my tall swede and a victorious game tomorrow! vamos la palma!
