    Sports? What's that again?

    Let's put it this way, I can't be bothered to run around a field chasing a ball but I don't mind watching other people do that once every four years, and if I had to play cricket, I'm better off fielding. :p

    Having lived about 5 minutes cycle from the beach all my live I'm big on my surfing (shredding on a shortboard none of this hang 10 crap) and skimboarding but we're a bit short of shore break around here. I longboard (skate longboard) which can be great fun and is a cheap way of getting around. I've also quite gotten into basketball in the last few months but still suck a lot.

    Oddly enough I don't watch any sport, although that'd probably be different if we got the NBA over here.

    Skateboarding is cool, I like watching people do tricks on them. Never been on a skateboard though. Skateboarding's one of those things I wish I could do, but I don't have the guts to, in case I fall off and break an arm o_O

    And Sparrow: I had to look that up...

    You don't wanna do that, if you want to win lol

    Sports I play:
    Swimming - Moi is one of the best swimmers not to go to China this year :p lol jokes, I've been swimming since I was....2 feet tall...so dis be my no 1 sport.

    Football - Played 4 seasons for college and 2 for Uni team (retired now), coach threw me on the flank...cos Ive got decent speed (umm..being a bit modest there hehe...bring it on Theo Walcott and Usain Bolt!), but I prefer a more central role..to be more involved in the game. Oh and I was il capitano back in college XD

    Futsal - Love the end to end..non stop action, the openness of play..etc. Recently lost in the semis of an inter Uni tournament....damn penalty shootouts! I did a Roberto Baggio...d'Oh!

    Squash - I was experimenting with a few racquet sports, instantly fell in luv with this one...ahh the exhilaration! I am decent playa..

    Surf and Snow - These are my elements...specially in the water.

    Boxing - The martial arts...a real passion of mine. (I throw on some retro Bruce Lee/ Chuck Norris tees' from time to time lol) Record of 24-2-16 so far...Hoping to learn some Muay Thai on my travels one day...

    Injuries: A broken nose and torn anterior ligaments from my right shoulder (happened when I landed on my elbow after heading out a corner kick..the next winter completely blew the same shoulder doing a maniac jump off the ski lift lol...still recovering after shoulder capsule shift surgery) and ofcoz lotsa cuts, gashes and bruises over the years X/ got some bad ass scars ;)

    Does sleeping count as a sport? If so then yes I can play a sport. :twisted:

    Otherwise I used to do a lot of cycling for exercise (need to get my bike fixed) and a lot of hiking too. But not sure if they really count as sport.

    I played State League netball BC (before children), now I just play in a social division. Other than that I spend my time driving children around to their sports.

    The only sports I have done was synchronized swimming, when I was younger for a couple of years and then after I did swimming for a few years. I still swim on my own, whenever I decide to go into the pool :D

    Football is my forte, I was asked to play Free Saftey (starting) for my school team.

    Next is Baseball, I have AWESOME power (not to brag, I can hit a 350 ft. Home Run :smile:), sub par contact. And great fielding. I used to play First Base.

    And I'm HORRIBLE at hockey. I can't skate :sad:.

    Not to toot my own horn. :biggrin:

    EDIT ONE:

    Chess is a sport? Who knew?

    Competition-wise, I've played football (soccer), but stopped a while ago. I've also played tennis, but stopped a few years ago. About a year ago, I played my last game at the Uni futsal team (I think the competition ceased to exist, but I'm not entirely sure).

    I also like squashing for the same reasons as Gio. I've been skiing since I was 4, but always recreationally, but I've been out of it for nearly two years because I simply haven't been to the Alps in the winter...! I've tried snowboarding, but decided I preferred skiing, because it gives you more freedom. I also cycle a lot, but mostly for transportation. And I go to the gym.

    Speaking of over-active.

    That's a skimboard so ha! Way to short (and wide) to be a surfboard :razz:

    Who's laughing now!

    (I didn't incude snowboarding cos I don't do it regularly but come this winter I'll be tearing up the French Alps XD)

    Do Wii-sports count as sports? :p

    On a serious note I used to play basketball for my school, until it sort of fizzled out and the school no longer had a team. I am very bad at most sports. I'm probably just above average at badminton.
