Smith Mag's Six-Word Memoirs
Appropriated For the Sports Fan

When SMITH Magazine first came out with their "six-word memoir" idea, I was totally transfixed, in a way anyone obsessed with "Quickie"-style writing might be.

Now they have compiled the best into a book, "Not Quite What I Was Planning" (taken from one of the memoirs, naturally).

There was a time when I spent WAY too much energy trying to create my own (you don't want to see 'em), but now I think I want to create a version entirely dedicated to my sports fandom. I think it sums it all up:

My wife's team saved my fandom.

I encourage you to submit your own six-word sports memoir through the comments. And all credit for inspiration where it's due: Check out SMITH Mag's site -- and if you're as intrigued as I am, you'll get the book, too.
