DEAR BASKETBALL, I MISS YOU

DEAR BASKETBALL, I MISS YOU

The following is a written piece by Chris Sermeno. It had not been announced, but Chris was set to MC our game nights for the NBL1 South 2020 Season. 

I miss you. There’s no other way to say it. I’m not the only one.

When you truly love something, time and space becomes irrelevant. The world disappears and all you have is what’s in front of you in its purest form.

It’s more than just a game to watch, officiate or play. It has the potential to form careers on a myriad of levels, from admin to players, journalists to physios, corporate hosts to merchandise sellers, local to international.

It has history spanning over 100 years, filled with tales and legends of epic moments and incredible talent, loyalty, servitude and raw passion.

More than just a sport, it’s a subculture that people can confide in and bond with others. Having the same taste in favourite teams, playing styles, tournaments, or maybe it’s a jersey of a player or city that carries a thousand words. It’s a safe space where you know you’re accepted because you share the same devotion.
