I am a huge fan of the UVa men’s basketball team. As a “Double ‘Hoo” (UVa 2005, 2016), I love supporting the team. This season, I’ve had the opportunity to go to three games. On Saturday, I attended the game with our in-state rival, Virginia Tech, and it was amazing. Not only did we have great seats, but the guys played so well and we ended up with a decisive victory. It was such a fantastic game (for UVa fans, at least)!
While I enjoy the games that I watch on television, there is just something about sitting in the arena and being a part of the experience. Listening to the chants from the student section, the band, the activities during the tv time-outs, seeing the players up close and personal are experiences that just cannot be captured fully through the television.
So, if you are a fan of any sport, I recommend going to an event at least once. It’s an incredible feeling to support your team in person. Being a part of the experience is pretty unforgettable!
