I'm a keen rugby and cricket player, both for my local clubs as well as for my university. The social side to both sports are great! Whether I am good or bad doesn't bother me - I just play because I love the sports and want to play!

 

I have also played hockey and football in the past, but have since given them up as I couldn't play so many sports! I've also tried fencing, but again, didn't have the time.

I play ice hockey - have been playing for 25 years. I'm not that old, I just started when I was 3.

 

Nice tough sport, until I get hit. Then I go cry in the corner. 8)

Does Darts count as a sport? If so then that would be the one I'm best at. I play in a league on Tuesday nights and practice 2 or 3 nights a week at home. Nothing like a sport where you can continue to drink while playing. I play softball too, but as a softball player, I'm a good coach, if you catch my meaning...

 

In terms of watching, I love baseball, American football(huge Red Sox and Patriots fan) and I like to watch hockey between the Super Bowl and spring training even if my favorite team is terrible. (which they are, argh!!)

I grew up playing Hockey and Baseball. Also did alot of cross country running, track and field stuff and volleyball.

 

During high school I played alllll the good stuff. Golf, football(pigskin), rugby, basketball.

 

 

At this point in my life all I do is workout at the gym, play pick up basketball and golf. Then I get home and lounge around and do things im not suppose to do :twisted:

 

 

btw I best not hear any comments of Golf isnt a sport...:P

im not sure that these are classed as sports, i do parkour (well when its dry, which aint often here), because it rocks thy socks, and i'v liked takeing risk and all over stuff like forever, and my second would rock climbing, which i'v just started, but it was kinda a logical progression.

 

i cant watch and sports like criket or football, because they bore me beyond death, but somehow i can watch snooker, meh *shrugs* some people are strange.a lot of them are me

Baseball and football. I'm better at football, and I'm only an average fielder, but I can hit to all fields and put it well out if you accidently give me a meatball.

 

Spring training is almost here! Go RED SOX!!!!!

playing rugby in highschool reminded me of all those recesses in grade school where we would play full contact foot hockey (which is essentially soccer with a tennis ball). Some of those games got prettttttttttttty intense.

Ive pretty much played most sports. Played basketball ok when I was in HS before I discovered beer, now I can barely jump and touch the ring.

I mainly play cricket now. To me its the ultimate test mentally and physically (in that order). I also like Rugby League, which is a better game than Union by a large margin. I dont really like baseball and the NFL, as I can only watch them for half an hour, then I get bored!!!

I agree wholeheartedly Oz. It is ultimate test. It's also a very tactical game, which is one reason I love cricket so much.

 

And at least England won something in Australia this time around...it may not have been the Ashes, but at least we ended the tour on a high!

I used to play netball... not so much anymore.

Now I'm just into rugby and I agree Oz, rugby league is better. New season has started, yey!

Lyenna. I love you xoxoxo :twisted:

Which team do you support. And netball is a great game, my sister and cousins were gun players!

And look, I can see how people think cricket is boring. I really can. But try fielding in 40 degree heat for 6 hours in the middle of an aussie summer, concentrating on every ball, running, throwing, bowling. Ahhh, its a test. Sure, I cant move on the Sunday, and I have to remind myself that Im doing it for fun, but I think its a good test of character. Mentally weak people dont last at cricket.

Then you have the English summer, where it usually rains. Then the mental test is to see how long you give the weather before heading down to the pub! :lol:
