The first sport I can remember being exposed to is basketball.
I didn’t grow up with cable television, so the NBA Finals was pretty much all the basketball I would watch for a good chunk of my childhood. But even then, basketball wasn’t the first sport I got involved with.
Soccer was the first sport I actually played, and I have no clue what brought about the interest in it. I just remember that, one day, I was really interested in the sport, and my mom let me enroll in a soccer summer camp for the park district.
I participated in a soccer summer camp two years in a row before I ditched the sport, and that was all thanks to an increased interest in basketball.
