I really wish the rest of the country could see how seriously Texans take their sports. I assume there are similar niches / venues around the country, but it's everywhere in Texas. Tonight, due to rain, soccer practice was indoors. It was about a 30-minute drive to Real Soccer Center. Something like a dozen indoor fields. When I went to pick up Olivia, I was absolutely amazed by all the teenagers playing soccer ... and taking it very, very seriously.
Olivia talked about all the sports at her school. Everyone is required to be in a sports activity throughout the year. Of course there are the standards: football, basketball, and track and field. But there's also wrestling, tennis, golf, softball, volleyball, baseball, and swimming. And dance.
I didn't ask if there was a bowling team. Something for everyone. There were even three students who didn't really care for traditional sports but really, really loved fishing. They started their own "fishing" athletic club and the school signed off on it. So, there you have it. Three "non-athletic" students really, really enjoying their sport: sport fishing. Only in Texas.
And, yes, they do have a skeet-shooting club. And this is just the middle school, seventh and eighth graders.
