September 19-Somethin’ Challenge – September 4

This is Suzanne’s challenge at https://mcclendonvilla.wordpress.com/september-19-somethin-challenge/ , and according to her “This challenge is prompted by the song 19-Somethin’ by Mark Wills. You can hear the song here: https://youtu.be/UhSCeItgUEc   The following questions are taken from the various lines in the song.  There are also a few random questions thrown into the mix to make it a post a day for the month – 30 posts.”

The September 4th question is: Did you have a sports hero? Who was he or she and what was their sport?

Nope.  Never was much for sports (you know, one of those kids last chosen for teams, and thrown on the baseball field by “well-meaning” teachers who somehow assumed every kid knew how to play baseball, and so never bothered to actually teach us how to play…)

But I did have a musical hero in Shostakovich!  Have you ever heard his 10th Symphony??

  1. This is beautiful and sounds so very sad…maybe a touch of threat in the initial bass. But, the overall feeling of it for me was sadness. Thank you for sharing. I’d never heard of this person before.

    Like you, I was one of those always chosen last for a team, if chosen at all. I was on a softball team briefly at the private school I went to in 7th grade. I say briefly because I never ever got to go to an actual game, only practice. The practice field (and the school) was in a very dangerous part of town. The teacher/coach had brought her little dog with her. She had to go do something away from the field and didn’t want to load the dog back into the car for the errand. She left me there on the field alone with her little dog. My mama passed the ball field (my grandparents lived relatively close to the school) and saw me out there alone. She was livid! That is the last I remember going to softball practice.

    Thanks for joining the challenge. Have a great week!

  2. My favourite is Leningrad (no 7 I think). Heartbreaking. I was similar to you in sports – my friend and I used to hide in the library to avoid it. The only sport I have any interest in watching is tennis – rooting for Andy Murray at the moment.
