Sports were a ritual in their house. Their father had them in one-sies of all their favorite sports teams before they were even baptized. Football was the big seller, but Hockey and Baseball were held with some reverence too. But the whole family sat down to watch Sunday football during the season, from 1pm to well past midnight, all gathered together in the living room. Even when Timmy and Sophie decided they didn’t really care for football, they still came out and sat in their usual spots on the couch, with a book or Gameboy or whatever, because family time was still family time. And in the Barton household—Sports time was family time.
