I thought it was a great point. The number of people around the world who follow soccer, for example - just because people might live on other planets in the future wouldn't make them abandon their favorite game or, for that matter, their team. So I took my husband's favorite sport, baseball, and added a dash of science fiction.
Granted, I've seen a game or two. But I don't know the sport like a true fan would. So, with my husband's help on the technical details, I put together a story about how fandom might evolve on a space station.
The result was "Lucky Thirteen," which was just published in Neo-opsis Science Fiction Magazine. I had a lot of fun writing this story, and I hope you enjoy reading it, too.
