I can relate to the loss of passion of competitive sport. Nowadays I am content with personal fitness at my own leisure. Love the straight to the point your poem gives.

At some point in life we lose interest in something we were involved in.

Fair comment. I am not above criticism. I was trying to show that I find it better to participate in sports, or coach them, rather than watch them on TV. I never watched one English soccer league game, although they were, and are, popular in my country.
