Everyone has a favorite "thing", right? Well now you are reading about my favorite sport. While most of my friends like soccer, my interest is in Basketball. Some say a girl can't play basketball? Maybe you do! Well you are wrong!
I started playing Basketball when I was in Grade 2. I usually play at 5:00 pm with my friends (who are mostly boys). My dad always tells me not to play too hard on them, or else I can beat them up, hehehe…, while my mom always warns me to be careful because I have a dental issue, and I need to protect myself not to be hit.
Sometimes, on Saturday mornings, I go with my dad to watch him play his basketball matches with other Filipinos and have tournaments around Bangkok. When my dad was young, he often received the MVP (Most Valuable Player) award, but who knows now?
I have learned some techniques, and the most useful one is to aim at the inner square/rectangle for a good chance to shoot in the hoop.
There were days, when I couldn’t play basketball, due to homework, exams, or just too lazy to go out. When I played again I could hardly shoot, and then I would start wondering “Did I become weaker?” or “Is Basketball still my favorite sport?” or “Did my friends become stronger?” Then I realized that I need to improve, and the way to improve is to play often, practice daily. These days I try my best to play every day.
I guess I would become a good basketball player someday, and become MVP like my dad perhaps. All I can say is “Good Practice Makes You Perfect”.
Next year, when I move to another school, I hope to join a basketball team!
Now that you listened to me, I want to listen to you! Tell me, what is your favorite sport? When did you start playing it? Why did you play it? Will you continue if an accident happens to you? Was this sport your passion or your hobby? Will you ever stop playing it and why?
