Hello Everyone, I hope you are all well.
I recently went to a football game and had a great time with friends. I have been asked after posting some pictures why would I want to go to sporting events if I can not see what is going on.
My answer is why not ?? I may not be able to see what is going on on the field but I do have the option to listen to the game on the radio while sitting with my friends. Most of the time I do not listen to the game on the radio but I take in the whole experience around me.
The smells of the stadium, the excitement, the cheers and boos, the whole atmosphere. Even if you don’t like football (which I don’t really) I love going to sporting events and experiencing everything going on around me.
My absolute favourite sporting event to go to is a hockey game, I love the sounds and experience of a hockey game. You can not help but get excited and into the game.
There are so many things like sporting events and shows that people believe as a person who is blind we can not enjoy these things. Believe me when I say I enjoy them immensely and remember that I do not miss out but experience it differently.
Now that the snow is starting to fall here I can not wait to go to a hockey game with my family !
Until Next Time !
Ashley and Rick
