Keep making noise! while you are watching sports. Each country has different types and favorite sports. When I was in New Zealand, I realized that rugby was the common sport. I had known new culture about it, because I never heard about rugby before and soccer is the common sport in Korea. What about America? Football is the most of people’s favorite sport, one thing that similar about sports from each country is people are cheering when they watch sports, no matter what sports they watch.
When I was young, I used to have dream about to be soccer player as what kids usually do, because I used to grow up with that sports. I remember when I was in elementary school, my classmates and I went to the field and played soccer enthusiastically during lunch time because lunch time is about an hour long in Korea so that we had enough time to play. The World Cup is very enthusiasm for soccer fans. In my memory, when the World Cup arounded us, people were wearing red T-shirts to cheer for Korean soccer team. Soccer is traditional sport that people are watching and cheering the team together as family or with friends. Therefore, in 2002 World Cup, almost million of people went to the city plaza and cheered together.
Have you ever played badminton for exercise? Badminton was actually good for play with my family. Also it is really simple to play, what all I need is pair of rackets. I believe that badminton can make relationship better in family. Because when I play badminton with someone not as match, I try to hit the birdie nicest I can for other person so that the person can hit the birdie back easily. I remember when I tried to learn how to play badminton during P.E at school or from my mom, my goal was hit the birdie over 10 times with my partner at that time, so we both played carefully, and gently hit it. Otherwise, we would not accomplish that goal.
Sports as soccer and badminton have lots of effects in my family. I think that if I play sports with my family, I feel like more close than before, because combinations are really important even just passing soccer ball or baseball each other. My dad really like baseball, so one day, he bought blue baseball gloves for me and my sister,and sometimes we threw the ball in living room. I found that blue gloves in my house this summer in Korea, it was really small to wear, but as soon as I saw that gloves, the memories through my head and made me smile.
I realized that I had nice memories about sports with my family and how time went fast. Also made me miss my family. Sports affect positively on my life with my family, because I can smile when I think about the memories.
