Being a sports fanatic is both a blessing and a curse. It can make your day. It can ruin your day. Unfortunately, I feel like I’ve had more of the latter in my 33+ years of fandom. However, it’s those truly special moments that keep me coming back for more. So without further ado, here are My 5 Most Euphoric Moments as a Sports Fan.
It was December 2004. I was a freshman in college. The dorms had closed for Winter Break, so I was staying with my parents for about a month. And I was bored out of my freaking mind…
For some odd reason, I decided to fill the time by watching old movies. I realized that several of the movies I was watching were previous Academy Award winners — primarily the winner of the most prestigious award, Best Picture.
This is how my love for the annual Academy Awards began.
Nothing quite warms the heart like a good Christmas movie. It’s why The Hallmark Channel seemingly produces 67 original Christmas movies every year at this time. A truly great Christmas movie is one you can watch year after year. And it’s why I decided to write this list. My rankings were based on the following criteria:
Criteria #1 – Overall love of the movie
Criteria #2 – Embracing of the true Christmas theme
Criteria #3 – Must be a feature-length movie (Charlie Brown & the original Grinch unfortunately don’t qualify)
Close your eyes and think of Thanksgiving… Chances are that most of us see the same types of food. Of course there are different varieties, preparations, and the works. But a Thanksgiving meal is fairly universal.
I’ve taken it upon myself to rank the Top 10 Thanksgiving-Related food items. And if you disagree with me, then you’re wrong.
September is a big time of year in my world, both personally and professionally. As someone who earns a living from people watching TV, how can you not be excited by Fall Premiere Season. There’s something truly magical about that final week in September when TV buzz is at its peak. With the season in mind, I thought now would be a perfect time to list my ten favorite TV series of all-time.
I should note that this ranking was extremely tough. When I recently ranked my 10 favorite movies, I felt like the list was complete because I truly feel like I’ve watched 95% of most great movies. However, I know I haven’t watched all the great TV shows. It’s such a huge time commitment. In the amount of time it would take me to rewatch the entire series of Friends (commercial-free even), I could watch roughly 45 movies. That’s insane! So I encourage your suggestions for my next show to watch.
Before I begin, let me say this list is extremely biased. It’s 100% influenced by my location, my job, my family, and my interests. There’s nothing objective about the words to follow. So accept these circumstances and enjoy the ride!
I can’t think of a better way to open my new site than with a blog post featuring this subject:
a) I love ranking things — whether it be NFL wide receivers or pizza toppings.
b) I love movies, and it’s the most relatable form or entertainment in our society.
Even if you prefer to spend your free time doing other activities, everyone has seen their share of movies. Everyone has their favorites, and I am no exception. So let’s get right to it!
