100 Word Challenge: Sport

I’m late… I know. I blame* FIFA World Cup soccer and afternoon semifinal games – England v Croatia – that go into two overtimes.

Spoiler: Croatia won its semi, so did France.

(I will blame* anything other than my own procrastination/ennui/lack of inspiration.)

I haven’t been following the tournament to this point. The U.S. Men’s team didn’t even qualify so I was without a hero to cheer for.  I WILL watch the final with Croatia and France on Sunday because it’s our church. (The Mister has been watching games and keeping me posted on any interesting developments.)

In my house, it’s futbol in the summer and football in the fall.

We didn’t lose the game; we just ran out of time. Vince Lombardi

This week’s word is:


What to do:

Using “sport” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Include a link in your post back here, and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow Wordsters.
