A few weeks ago, I asked some of my good friends and fellow bloggers a few sports related questions and most of them were gracious enough to answer. Today, we will hear from Kevin Haggerty. He blogs at theisleofman.net and tweets at @kevinrhaggerty. Check him out!
What is your favorite sport to watch? Play? See highlights of on SportsCenter?
What is/are your favorite team/s?
What is the most creative mascot? Why?
The Southeast Georgia Technical Institute “Babystealers”
Who is your favorite player in any sport?
What is your favorite moment in sports that you have been alive to see?
Kirk Gibson’s homerun
What about sports (professional or otherwise) do you like? Dislike?
I like being able to see guys who are seemingly superhuman perform athletic feats that allow me to live through them vicariously. I dislike the prima donnas — and the guys who shoot themselves in strip clubs.
In what capacity do you think God cares about sports? What are your thoughts on prayer before games?
I think He always wants us to give our best and to try and be excellent. But I don’t believe He cares who wins an athletic competition. That seems silly to me. When I was coach, I never prayed we would win, but that we would glorify Him with our effort and our attitude.
If you were given the choice to be gifted at any professional sport, what sport and position would you choose? Why?
I’d want to be a point guard in the NBA. It’s my favorite sport. I’ve played, coached…even reffed. I love the game, my body just never really lived up to its part.
