MY FAVORITE BLOG POSTS’s – the – story -with – that – title

Thank you again, Hunida for nominating me and thank y’all so much for following and liking my little blog.



A few weeks ago ,  I got nominated  for  the  Liebster  Award  by Anna from AnnasLittleThing.wordpress ,  and I hope you  all checked out her blog.

(Sportsandtravelblog.wordpress/2017/11/17/The – Liebster-Award)

I  just got nominated  again for another Liebster  Award  by Tashnee  from Tashnee . V.Mavee, so do follow  her blog as well.

Very inspiring  posts  on her blog.

Once again ,  the rules of  the  award  are this:

Thank the person who nominated  you  and link back to  their blog.

Give some info  about  yourself . 

Answer the questions  that  the blogger  who nominated  you  asked you.

Nominate 5-10 bloggers for this award  and  if they accept it, let them know about the award.

Ask your nominees five questions . 
What else can I  tell you about me that you don’t  already  know ? I’m  a fairly  good  cook, I  love to travel ,  I’m  sarcastic  as hell, I enjoy blogging ,  and the same way Beyonce Knowles  has her alter ego, “Sasha  Fierce”, I have my bitmoji alter ego, which many of you have seen  on my blog. Her name is Cece, the Sports Diva. I can talk about  sports 365 days a year, 366, if you count a leap year.

1. Besides Blogging ,  what do you do?

As I’m  retired ,  my day is free to do anything  I want to, which is sleeping ,  shopping ,  cooking ,  going for walks, getting ideas for my blog, and of course, going to as many baseball ,  hockey ,  and  basketball  games as the Good Lord allows me to.

2. If you could be the president  of  your country  for one day, what would  you  change and why?

I  would  make  sure that EVERYBODY  could  have affordable  Health  Care. I just don’t  understand  why  and how in one of  the  richest countries  in the world everyone  doesn’t  have this. It boggles my mind.

3. Name the three people  who inspired you when it comes to blogging.

There are more than three. I would say my late Aunt Ola, who was a teacher and told me to practice  writing. My teacher ,  Sister Eileen  Fitzmaurice, who actually  told me to combine my love of sports and my writing. Finally ,  I’m  inspired  by  the bloggers that I follow  and those that I DON’T  follow . You guys are wicked amazing and help me to step up  my blogging  game . 

4 Why did you start blogging ? 

I  love to write and many people ,  not just a friend, asked after you go to a sporting  event, “what do you do in the city after that?” Writing a blog was my way of getting that question  answered without  writing a travel guide or a book about it.

5. What is your favorite  gospel music ? 

Actually none, not really a fan of  it.




1. If you could win a free trip to  anywhere in the world ,  where would it be and why?

2. How did you come up  with  the  name of your blog ? 

3. What do you do when you aren’t  blogging ? 

4. What do you love about  blogging ?  

5. What is your  favorite  sport and team if you have one?
Thanks again to  Tashnee for nominating  me  for  this award.

I might sound like  a  wicked annoying  broken record, but I  can’t thank you all enough for reading, liking and commenting  on my little blog.

It means the world to me.

Thank you all and God Bless  You,
Sports  Diva64

2. I  love buying wigs, just not grey, blond or some funky color like blue, green or orange.

5. Since I’ve  been  retired, I’m  finding  myself  sleeping  a lot.

6. Besides, “staying home is not  an  option  “, you’ll  always  hear me say, “stuck  on  stupid  “, “are you  for real  right  now ? “, or “just because  you can, doesn’t  mean  you  should . ”

7. I  love going  to  the  library  and  reading, what else, travel guidebooks.

8. If I won the  lottery ,  besides donating  money to my friends and family, my high school ,  my church  and paying bills, I’d  travel and buy seasons  tickets to one or all of the teams that I follow .

Questions  From Anna  

1. Worst Date Ever?

No comment  it was THAT bad!

The rosary that I carry everywhere with me. It was one of my late aunt’s many rosaries.

3. What is your favorite  all time movie ? 

Gigi. I  love musicals . 

4.One short term  and long term  goal?

My short term  goal was to be able to  do freelance  sports  writing. I accomplished  that in 1992 when I got to interview  Darin Kimble of the Boston Bruins  hockey team. To say that I was wicked nervous  as hell ,  you don’t  even know .  

My long term  goal  is  to  get  better and better in my blogging  journey .  I’m  still working  on  that.

5. Why did you start your blog?

I  love to travel  and going to  sporting  events .  My friend always asks me, “after we go to the game, what’s  there to do there?” Other people  had the same response, so I decided why not tell them?
