When I was growing up in the Los Angeles area in the mid to late 70s, I was a big fan of all the local sports teams. I was surprised to find out that my fifth grade teacher was also a sports fan. What made it surprising was that my teacher was a nun. I didn’t think that nuns could be sports fans.
I found out that Sister Joan was a sports fan on the first day of school. She asked the class if anyone had a subscription to Sports Illustrated. Being the sports geek that I was, I responded that I had my own SI subscription. Looking back, that was probably a little strange for a ten year old. Sister Joan was asking because she wanted to borrow the weekly issues.
