I'm very anti-athletic, I guess. If you enjoy playing those games that qualify as "sports," good for you...but the extent to which they're milked as a status symbol, as a necessity for some, ugly ideal of masculinity, and, in their professional form, as a source of wealth, despite their relative uselessness, annoys me. Maybe if the sort of communities that tend to surround sports tapered off to something less egotistical and less crude, I'd be more interested in playing them, at least on a friendly, casual level...but as is, I avoid them like the plague.

Which, given that I'm only a few inches off from seven feet tall, made my P.E. coach from two years back despise me, I think. *chuckles*

I'm a wrestler here. ^^

I do play sports like football and stuff...just not for any organization at all...just for fun with my friends and all that. I play for fun in what ever it is I'm doing. =^.^=

It's been like that since ancient times, Being perfectly honest.. A playwrite in ancient Rome or The Guy who escaped the lions den..probably recieved the same amount of admiration..

:sigh:, You should move to some small place where they didn't care about sports and played Basketball..lol

Well, first of all, no, they would've been sad he didn't get eaten. The entire point of that sort of sports show was to see someone get hurt.

...Like NASCAR.

So a better example would probably be the Olympics, which were a highly admired, ancient Greek custom.

On that note, there's a difference in a society that respects athletic achievement and a society that colors that achievement with the sort of overawed egotism that we do today. There's something noble in physical excellence for the sake of physical excellence, which was what that sort of Greek athletics focused around...and that same sort of Olympic ideal allowed for one to be an athlete and not some sort of burly, hypermasculine stereotype. The same people that were writing the plays were going out and fighting the Persians or competing in the gymnasium.

That sort of Olympic view of athletics would be the sort I could get behind. The fact that a great deal of pride was put on the pursuit in both cases doesn't make the way the pride functioned the same.

I like Nascar..And not because of the crashes..it is a very competitive sport..And I don't want to see someone die from it..I cried a little when Dale Sr. died..They go extremely fast and You never know who is going to win the race until the final lap..

In football..What is more entertaining to watch to me...A 99 yd touchdown or a guy who's entire career is over from a hit..

99 yard TD...DEFINTLY..Watching some guy just because he gets hurt..is pretty sick IMO.

I don't really play any sports, mainly because none of them interest me that much. I'll watch a football or baseball game from time to time.

I've tried my hand at soccer, baseball, and basketball. I suck at them all. The only one I don't think I ever tried out for at least once was football. I think I could've done well in there.

But then as far as my favorite sport, Chess has got to be my favorite. It is a sport, even ranked as one of the most popular in the entire world, second only to soccer. (Third is the Olympics.) And hey, if you think that I'm lying, the perhaps you'd be one more for the physical equivalent: Chess Boxing.

If you think that's strange, you should read the Dwarf Tossing event. I wanna throw me some dwarves! XD

I like watching and playing sports a lot. I mostly just play with freinds, although I did two years of competive diving in high school.

On rare occasions I do Paintball and Airsoft, but I have never liked the mainstream sports such as soccer and basketball. If I ever feel the need to use my body, I go for long walks or take a lap in the woods ^^. I respect the people who like sports, but I hate the people who forces me to do sports, such as my school.

Joey: Wow, an olympic training? So you are pretty deep into that sport, eh?

Ah, I see =). So, that's like a level inside the sport. Like a class?

Same here. I might be willing to play if you ask, but I hate it when I am forced to play. Same thing with driving.

I guess I'm kind of in agreement with LHP (more on the whole 'sports being too much on a sign of masculinity' deal). I mean, I'm not the kind most would probably want on their team (or was), and my dad said he was ALWAYS picked last as a kid. This is, naturally, why I always try to be the captain. ;D

It's not like I hate sports. I'll play them if I've nothing else to do (and I find basketball to be pretty fun sometimes), but I don't understand the fascination with watching them. =|


If Chess is a sport, then I can go with that as well. Not a big player, but I can still do so (and Checkers, if that counts... >.>; ).

I've played airsoft once. Got shot in the face twice. By the same kid. Nearly killed the brat. Still, it was kinda fun. XD
I would like to try out paintballing someday...


I use to be in karate (a long, long time ago) and wouldn't mind getting into some sort of martial arts again. Or, perhaps, Parkour. =D

Fencing sounds fun, too. =)

good fencers are the swordsmen you want to fear most. lightest weapon ever, give a fencer a sharp rapier and he will OWN you. no matter what sword style you use. its too nimble to fight against with something like a katana or BS.

oh, and look if there is an Academy of Chinese Indonesian fighting arts near you, Myoti. they are the best schools ever. they actually teach a martial art that is illegal to teach in america.

I also have tried my hand at Airsofting, i am pretty into it atm, i bought a G36c especially for it. Also it is a great motivational tool for keeping my brother out fo my room Smile
apart from that im pretty lazy, Altho my work is pretty physical so i stay in shape.
