Life of a Blogger is a weekly meme hosted by Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat, in which bloggers discuss non-bookish topics so we can get to know each other better.
Another awesome topic! I adore sports. Mostly playing, but I don't watch too many. My top sport to watch, though? Football! English, not American, just to clarify. I've loved it for years, and I probably won't stop, ever. I get so pumped up while watching matches and I'm just really passionate about the teams and players I love. So here are my top teams.
English Premier League: Manchester United
Manchester United was the first team I ever loved and I'll support them till the end. Words can't really express how much I love watching them play and I really did tear up when Sir Alex announced his retirement. One of the best football clubs not only in EPL, but in the world. 20 league titles - the most of any English club. With the best manager of all time, Alex Ferguson. They were unstoppable then, and though they've just had a bad season, I have no doubt they'll be unstoppable in the future too. Glory Glory Man United!
La Liga (Spanish football league): Real Madrid
I don't follow La Liga as religiously as I do EPL, but when I do catch the matches, I full-on support Real Madrid. At first it was because Ronaldo, my then top favourite player, moved there from Man United. But now I love the team as a whole, and from next season I've decided to follow every single match for La Liga as well.
FIFA World Cup: I support quite a few teams here, so I'll list them in order -
If you follow the world cup right now, you'll know that my top two teams are already out. Which really sucks! Spain has won three consecutive cups including FIFA 2010, and people say it's now the end of an era. England, on the other hand, isn't doing so well, and hasn't been for a while. But I don't care, I love the team and so many players in it. Here's hoping for a better FIFA 2018!
So yeah, there you go. Football = one of the greatest loves of my life. I'm planning on watching more sports when I head off to uni this fall, one of them being basketball. It's my favourite sport to play, so of course I'll love watching it too. What are your favourite sports teams? Leave me a comment and let me know!
