Seems like no matter how much I try to avoid it, every year, some how I manage to see parts of games or news coverage about the Little League World Series. Now I was the furthest thing from an athlete in school and I would have never ever have been able to even make my local little league team regardless of the abuse. However it still triggers me (some good but mostly bad) when LLWS time comes around. It was especially bad when a town 20 miles away won the championship about 15 years ago, coverage was everywhere. You'd just about have to crawl into a fetal position and live in the bathroom not to have heard about it.
Even though my lack of athelticism, it still brings me back to what might have been. Sometimes, I'm happy for the kids, seeing what fun they were having and what others would focus on how I should have been having fun and being a kid back then.
Is this a trigger for anyone else?
