When we were kids

Hello, good afternoon sports fans, it’s me Ayyaz Malik aka The Sports Buff. I pray you’re well, looking after yourselves and are in good health. Sports fans, well for those of you who are a little more advanced in years, it’s time we go for a walk.

Where are we talking too Sports Buff, I hear you ask? A walk down memory lane is my reply. So when you were a kid, put your hand up if when walking home from school you would see a can and kick it along with you as you walk down the street, *puts his hand up*.

Don’t hate it, I am sure there are many other kids who would do this, it was the happy less complicated days, that’s for sure. If you didn’t do that, it’s classic .. the imaginary bowling action along the road.

People looking at you as if you’re weird? No, no .. they don’t know it was an intense moment? This was the closest I was going to get to the famous run up to bowl 22 yards, even if it was in my head.

What was better than the imaginary bowling, was your friend pretending to be the batsmen facing the bowl you bowled. Friends like those are friends for life. I call mine my twin brother, but others have their own friends.

Growing up when you’re a kid seems like a pinnacle, but now I am 35, it’ not quite what it’s cracked up to be. Yeah, well fatherhood is awesome and playing cricket (backyard cricket with my nephew is good), but the original form of cricket? Well that’s the imaginary kind.

Honourable mentions for sports when you were a kid were toy fighting (WWE wrestling, I know you have suplexed your sister or in my case her big bear). The Last Ride is something I have done on my brother and Rock Bottom too

Tag is another activity done predominantly when you were a kid, but I am now are that’s a professional sport. So kids for all of those who thought you were wasting away your life perfecting tag, then maybe this could be a way to the food on the table.

You see, there is hope after all.
