It’s the small things in life that matter, be a special hand-written note from a loved one or going for a late night drive or a walk just to grab some ice cream. Or staying home on a Sunday in those cozy pajamas, ordering pizza and cracking a cold one with your friends while you watch your favorite team play. These small things in life give us immense happiness, but it can also end up the other way when the fruition is not what you desired or things didn’t turn out to be good.
Steve had anxiously waited for this day to watch his favorite football team “New England Patriots” lift the cup, absolutely unaware of what his daughter was up to. Anna had left a hand-written note for her father revealing some secrets that would hit him like a bus and break his heart, but when he gets to the end, things would make sense to him.
A Heartbreaking Note
He was taken aback by what he was reading, every word that he read was like a kick in the gut. He knew that his daughter was now a grown up but he never expected her to drift so far away from her roots. While he anxiously waited for this day to arrive to watch his favorite football team win, he found himself in a situation which he wasn’t ready for. Read this story to the end to find out what exactly happened.
It’s just a game, sometimes you lose, sometimes you win, right? Try telling that to a sports spectator and you’ll know it’s more than just a game. There are speculations, bets, nervousness, and an array of emotion that one invest in a game. It has to be exciting and the hype is real, things turn within seconds, what was supposed to be an easy game could end up being a nail-biter or the most awaited event of the year might end up being a flop because of underperformance. While winning might have you sit on cloud 9, losing can certainly break your heart, and what’s better or say nerve-racking than a finale?
It wasn’t hidden from anyone that Steve was a football fanatic and he followed all the NFL games. He was that guy in the office that everyone would find to listen to the details of the game they missed last night and Steve never disappointed, his commentating skills were just about good. He was a lifelong fan of the sport. His dad would take him to games that Steve thoroughly enjoyed. For now, he was at the peak of his excitement as the big day had finally arrived.
Steve had this day marked in his calendar and he had set his alarm clock a bit early for that Sunday. Steve wanted everything at hand when it’s time, be the food, the drinks, or his lucky glove; as his favorite football team, the New England Patriots were to take on the Philadelphia Eagles for the title in Super Bowl LII. While Steve was unable to contain his excitement, there was another member in his family who wasn’t as enthusiastic and Steve would soon find himself in an unexpected situation…
Outgrowing The Fandom
The only thing Steve loved more than his passion for the New England Patriots was his only child Anna, who was now 16-year-old and it was quite obvious that Steve held her the dearest. Steve would often take his daughter to Patriot’s matches, get her the team’s jersey. He even furnished her room with football collectibles and Anna too loved it as a kid.
Not A Fan Anymore
We can make a long list of things that we once loved doing but our love for them ultimately faded with time. Anna much like her dad was also a passionate Patriot fan once, but that’s when she was a kid. However, as she grew with time, it was natural for her to develop new interests and so did it happen. Anna’s love for the Patriots was now a thing of the past.
