As we watched, though, I started to get into it and was even able to understand the strategies and tactics by relating it to something I did understand (stock car racing).
Could you do this? Instead of tuning out when new contacts or old friends wax enthusiastic about something you have no interest in, try to:
- learn why they are so fascinated by it,
- draw parallels to something you do enjoy,
- and just take it as a learning experience.
P.S. The Amgen Tour of California Stage 4 on Wednesday, February 18 is going right past the Clovis Chamber on their way to the finish line about 200 yards away. If you're watching on TV, look for the 2 story yellow building with a shake roof. I'll be right there!
