I follow sports, mainly the NFL and the NHL. I honestly don’t know why I became such a sports junkie, but I think it had something to do with the fact that I was exposed to sports on a regular basis when I was quite young. In fact, when I was in elementary school, I came home one day and told my mom that we had sung the “hockey song” in school that day. My mom apparently was confused and eventually figured out that the “hockey song” was in fact the Canadian national anthem (I had probably heard it on a broadcast of Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday and just assumed it was the “hockey song”). My favourite teams? From the NFL, I would have to say it is the Seattle Seahawks and from the NHL, it would be the Vancouver Canucks and the Montréal Canadiens.
The book that was hyped a lot that I did NOT enjoy was The Big Short by Michael Lewis. Part of the reason that I didn’t like the book is that the book at times got a little too technical for my liking. And while I understand why he needed to write the technical stuff on stocks, I felt it took away from the flow of the three stories that he was telling. When I posted the review, I was glad to get the book done with. Nothing against Mr. Lewis’ writing, I just felt that he could have put an index at the back of the book, as there were things he mentioned later on in the book, that I had completely forgotten about and were clearly mentioned earlier in the book.
