Pete Evans has just finished going 12 months without watching any sport.
The journey stemmed from a sense that the balance was out-of-whack with my time and my priorities. Everything seemed to revolve around creating enough time and space to fit in the last game, games, recap shows or space to surf the net for the latest numbers and analysis.
The cycle never ends – one season leads into another, seasons overlap if you follow various sports and the media’s insatiable appetite for a new ‘story’ means that even the greatest of achievements aren’t heralded for more than 3 days.
So I stepped away from the machine for awhile and intentionally engaging with the journey by writing about it.
And really, the first blog post says it all! – https://myyearwithoutsport.wordpress.com/2011/06/06/stepping-away/
Even though the journey is over, the allures and temptations of re-entering a world with sport abound. I will post every Tuesday and hope to give you something to ponder or be amused by … either way’s fine!
