Texas Passion

Texas Passion

Sports are a big thing in most states, but for those of us raised in Texas, we all know sports are everything. From the first time I could say “Go Texans” I was cheering in a red and navy dress with a big Texas bull in the middle of it. From Super Bowl parties, to World Series hangouts, sports are a great reason to throw a party for Texans. Most people don’t realize the passion for sports in the state of Texas until they travel out of state and see how Texans really feel about their state.

Two weekends ago I traveled to Maryland for a lacrosse tournament and played a bunch of northern teams. Up north, kids were raised with a lacrosse sticks like Texans were with footballs. Their teams were amazing, but when playing for them it was all about winning. My team even when losing, still played it for the fun of it. Yes, winning is fun and a very big part of it, but the passion behind playing the sport is so strong in Texans.

The following weekend I traveled to Florida for another tournament, the teams there were good too, but the northern teams were much better. Teams there were like a medium between passion in Texas and north states like Maryland. Being raised in Texas is a blessing because your drive for the will to win and playing a sport because you love it is stronger in Texas.
