During these tough times of social distancing and self-quarantining, you may be going through sports withdrawal. I feel the same way. To help you get your sports fix, try turning to YouTube. Here are just a few videos to help you feel less sports deprived.
Any Patriots Championship Year
Although I am not the biggest Patriots fan, I have to say that their championship seasons always make me remember why I love football. The way that their team just always seems to be so great no matter who they have is what always inspires me to be great. Tom Brady has won six Super Bowls with them and it’s because he always works hard for it. My favorite years are when the Patriots faced the Seahawks and when they faced the Falcons. Watching highlights of those two games makes me miss the game of football.
Michael Jordan Career Highlights
The GOAT of basketball and Chicago sports has to be on this list. Michael Jordan always found a way to get the job done. Everyone who has watched him always says that he was amazing. This only makes me wish that I could have grown up in Jordan’s time period. He was (and still is) a role model for anyone who wants to be a basketball player. Watching any of his teams championship runs will make you feel the chills, and so will his career highlights.
Kobe Bryant’s Basketball and Life Career
This one is a sad one. However, that isn’t to say that Kobe Bryant wasn’t a great man on and off the court. I still remember how sad everyone, including myself, was after hearing of his passing. He truly did leave a mark on the lives of many, whether that was as a basketball player, father figure, or just a human being. Since he always had a desire to win and never gave up, Bryant’s career basketball highlights are sure to spark a fire in anyone watching.
