What sports do you play?
 
Ok this forum is finally a go! Start it off with sharing our own interests in sports, say what you play/played or just enjoy to watch!

I played volleyball all through high school, and competitively in club, still play intramurals and beach volleyball. also did rugby and track, but volleyball will always be my favourite.

To watch, besides volleyball, gotta love football (my team is the bengals) and college basketball, I can't stand the NBA. not gonna lie im pretty anti-Canadian :( and don't have the greatest love of hockey but it's still pretty cool.

Re: What sports do you play?
 
tennis and soccer are my played sports with tennis being above all. i was on my high school's varsity team. i also played hand ball with a raquet ball(little blue ball) in high school but that isnt anything official. fun stuff


as far as watch is concerned though i dont watch anything. i'll watch football at a friends house if theyre watching it but thats it. basketball is boring and so is pretty much every other sport. watching sports is boring to me idk id rather play.

Re: What sports do you play?
 
that's sweet, tennis is actually so much fun. im not very good, you'd definitely crush me. my only decent skill there is my serve but even then it's inconsistent. I've always wanted to try racquet ball maybe I should just show up at my school's courts haha.

def agree that playing > watching, but I don't mind either

Quiz Bowl counts as a sport, right? People got letters for it.

If not, I did a bit of track and field.

Played soccer all the way up to the end of highschool. After that I kinda stopped playing it competitively but still play it casually from time to time.

I watch mostly soccer only though, especially FC Barca. They're the team I follow :V

raquet ball is fun as hell and it's a hell of an active sport when you actually get into it. i played every lunch during my 3 of my high school years. by senior year i was playing in the money court making 10-20 dollars every lunch. 8)

I played tennis and ran cross country in high school. Haven't done a ton of either since then :( Oh and I bowled for a year in high school! Really fun, but I'm pretty bad.

Casually, I'm down for basketball, football, volleyball, and just about anything if I get the chance. I've never played golf though, and I'm sure I'd be horrendous.

I follow all mainstream sports due to an excess of SportsCenter in my life.

Re: What sports do you play?
 
i play tennis in college (and quiz bowl)

high school i also did golf and basketball, much better at basketball than tennis

i also run like 2000 miles a year

and racquetball is the most fun sport ever, so intense! i follow UK basketball, the celtics/OKC, nadal/dogopolov, tiger woods lol

DarknessXoXLight 09-28-2013 03:18 AM

Re: What sports do you play?
 
The only sport I still really do is swimming. Unfortunately, my college doesn't have a swim team but they're constructing a pool right now that should be complete by next year. If I'm still here, I'll definitely be joining it the second I can.

Through middle school and high school: I played soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball and ran track. Swimming has taken up 17 wonderful years of my life, and volleyball took up 6. Everything else was 2 years. I would have kept going if I didn't develop a heart condition but what can you do lol. As long as I get to swim, I don't really care about anything else.

I don't watch sports. ~_~

does starcraft count

I bet it doesn't

edit: I actually used to play soccer but got tired of chasing balls. j/k, I probably would still be playing soccer if I was given more opportunity.

Re: What sports do you play?
 
Only competitive sports I've ever taken part in at a serious level were soccer and martial arts (TKD to be exact, black belt).

I play basketball for fun because horse is always stupid and gets outta hand almost all the time XD. I guess I like sprinting too, but not much. Just to see how fast I can run.

Herogashix 09-28-2013 03:49 AM

Re: What sports do you play?
 
I used to play a fair bit of soccer and basket-ball, and hopefully will be picking up basket-ball again sometime.

T-Force 09-28-2013 04:22 AM

Re: What sports do you play?
 
I don't play anything anymore, but I did 2 years of roller hockey, 1 of soccer, 4 of baseball, and 2 of flag football.

Watching is another story. I'm cool with baseball (go Jays), and I'm a fan of football (go Lions [CFL], Texans, and Saints). Of course, being Canadian, my true love is hockey. Go Canucks!

I've also done 2 live grand slams (see a live game of all 4 pro sports) which is pretty cool.

ohhhhhhh it's on boy :P

growing up I liked the broncos, idk why I made the switch but the bengals sort of stuck,

and NBA just isn't very entertaining to me I guess. huge egos and lots of cocky play with not tons of hustle compared to a lot of what I see in the NCAA. still amazing level play obv, just not as fun to watch for me

In high school, I played basketball my freshman year and did track for 3 years.
Even though it's my favorite sport, I didn't play (American) football because I'm not a huge fan of playing contact sports.

j-rodd123 09-29-2013 02:31 PM

Re: What sports do you play?

The lack of hockey players makes me sad.

I played AAA hockey up until 12th grade, and then played on my highschool team in 12th grade.
Also did track.
Played football for 2 years in 9th and 10th grade until I seriously injured my knee. That injury is why I didn't go farther in hockey and it still makes me sad to think about.

Kibblre 01-24-2014 06:10 PM

I played travel ice hockey until high school (my school didn't have a team) then played high school tennis. I don't play tennis anymore since I separated my shoulder my senior season.

my most competitive sport would be slalom waterskiing. For exercise I like squash and swimming. Other sports I do are football (shoulders couldn't handle it tho...), surfing, wakeboarding, downhill skiing, motorcycle racing.

Track and Field no doubt. I went to the State Championships for high jump this year during winter track, and am going for a repeat for spring. I'm also a distance runner, never really one for sprints. I despise anything shorter than a 400m, but my range normally goes from 800m all the way to 5000m. And even though MOBA's don't count as sports here, I dabble in LoL as most people do. Figured I should add that

I'm a long distance athlete, running varsity cross country. My distance of choice is the half-marathon. I've also played a decade worth of soccer, but haven't joined an organized league since I graduated high school.

Artic_counter 03-13-2014 11:46 PM

Re: What sports do you play?
 
I've played ice hockey for about 14 years as a left defenceman and baseball for about 9 years. My positions for baseball were mostly pitcher, 2nd base and left field.

Although I really love hockey, I was, at the time I quit, getting tired of playing the sport competitively. Nowadays I play mostly with friends on friday nights during winter. As for baseball, I never really got fed up with it. I missed one season because I broke my left arm during pratice and after that I decided to free my summers for a while. Never played again. Might have been a good decision since the sport left a good taste in my mouth compared to hockey in which I was losing interest.

I'm quite decent at both sports so if you ever come to Quebec, come and say hi and I'll gladly play with/against you haha!

Wait wut, I thought this only existed in Harry Potter lmao. You actually run around the field with brooms and stuff, wow. The more you know, not gonna lie that's pretty neat, though I'd feel silly af playing that myself ha

I mainly play basketball, also a bit of running track (mainly sprints) and soccer but I basically played those to get quicker in basketball. I trained a little kickboxing too but I don't know if I'd consider that me playing a sport, I was basically just kicking a bag/pad all the time and a little sparring (i.e, me getting my ass kicked over and over).

Contact sports. Kickboxing primarily, but I also grapple (though I'm not very good- I'm better at manipulating other people into good positioning for muay Thai). Muay thai is fucking great btw. Many memorable (though some not) goose eggs.

Re: What sports do you play?
 
Bowling semi-competitively for much of my life. I bowled a 300 game a couple years ago. Basketball a fair bit. I'm really good at shooting and being 6 feet 2 makes that a pretty deadly combination, I just need to practice handling more. Potential to get great at basketball is there. Good at ping pong for a recreational player. You pit me against any seasoned competitive player (as in legit goes to real competitions) and the spins they use will destroy me simply because I lack the training required to adjust to such heavy spin. I want to get into golf but for some reason haven't yet. I think I'd be a natural at putting and touch shots but driving the ball/long game I'd have to work at. Darts is something I've dabbled in here and there. It might be super fun and interesting. It's actually quite a big deal in some countries.
