Memories-Sports Talk With Anthony Bonelli And More

There are times in our lives that we just do not forget, the birth of a child, graduating from college, or meeting our favorite celebrity just to name a few. The year 1986 was before my time, but it is a year that I have heard a lot about. What occurred in 1986 you ask, the New York Mets beat the Boston Red Sox in the World Series. Yes, I know here come the jokes, that was 30 years ago and the last time the Mets won a World Series, you were not even born. Believe me, I have heard them all, but as the Mets celebrate the 30th anniversary of their last World Series Championship this weekend, which is headlined by an on-field ceremony on Saturday, I ask everyone to remember how they felt when their favorite memory occurred, what emotions did you feel at the time, and what emotions are brought back when you think of it years later?

I have been fortunate enough to be part of two championship winning teams in my life, I can tell you I remember everything that happened leading up to and about each championship game. I am sure if you ask a member of the 1986 New York Mets, they would say the same thing. You might be asking yourself where is he going with this, I have written in the past that in every blog that I write I want to teach or remind my readers about something. In this blog, I would like to remind my readers to enjoy those special memories that occur in your life.

I believe people do not spend enough time appreciating special memories, almost like we expect them to happen regularly. Remembering those memories help us get through difficult times, we may not realize it at the time, but most times when we take time to think about what is going on in our lives those memories make us smile when we do not think it is ever going to be possible for us to smile again.

As we celebrate Memorial Day weekend this weekend, I ask all my readers to take a moment to remember those special memories that have occurred in your life, more importantly think about what makes those memories so special. This weekend is a perfect weekend to do this, as we honor those who fought for our freedoms and in turn allowed us to experience those special times in our lives. This may not be a blog directly related to sports, but I think this blog has a very important message in it, one that is forgotten to many times! As I told the girls’ basketball team that I coached this year before every game, CHERISH THE MOMENT, or in this case MEMORY!!!
