I was raised in a sports crazy home. We always gathered together for Viking games and cheered together. Sports have always meant more than just a game. They were and are a gathering device for our family. It means togetherness and happy time to me. The actual game is irrelevant. It is the being together that really matters. Whenever the Vikings or Broncos or Nuggets are playing you can hear my phone going off with messages from my family as we share the game even though we are miles apart.
