My favorite sports event/memory/moment is ... My favorite sports moment hits close to home.  I have two younger brothers that started playing tennis because I played.  I realized at an early age that they had great potential and a knack for the game.  While they were in high school, they met in county finals. It was great watching both of them play against each other for a title.  Of course that day I was overcome with a whole range of emotions, good and bad, because I knew unfortunately there had to be a winner and a runner-up- not only from the same school, but the same household.  I watched the entire match as a happy brother but also as a proud coach.
