I just spent probably at least a half hour writing a FanPost that might never get read over at A Sea of Blue about Kentucky college soccer, a code of soccer/football that almost no one cares about. Seriously, no one. Which led me to question why I bothered to do that?
I’m getting to realize that once you turn 30 or so, get married, and have a few kids, you’ve got to start choosing your battles. I love Kentucky basketball and football. I love soccer. I very much like Vanderbilt basketball and football, SEC football, less so NFL, NBA, MLB in that order. Now that Louisville City FC is coming to town, it’s probably gonna be my main sports obsession, or at least share that spot with Kentucky basketball and football, for the foreseeable future.
If you’ve ever really kept up with anything I’ve ever written under this moniker, you’d know that I, at one time, read and wrote blog posts about almost everything anyone ever wrote about Kentucky and Vanderbilt sports until that started kind of interfering with the job people paid me money to perform. I post a lot less about all that stuff now, as it’s become harder and harder to digest news about five or six different sports teams every day. It’s time consuming. Something has to take a back seat.
So I’ve made a conscious decision to stick to Kentucky, some Vandy stuff, and Louisville City FC. USMNT will get my undivided attention every time they play, but I can’t be reading clippings about how everyone involved in that program played every weekend - I’d never get a work day started. Real life has to be lived in there somewhere. Live on.
