What sports do you play?

I was just thinking ... I play a LOT of sports. I'm not good at any of them, but I enjoy playing them.

I have my seasons....

Summer: Beach volleyball
Fall: Flag or touch football
Winter: usually football (outdoors), but this year it's volleyball
Spring: Softball

All the sports I play are co-ed, and I play in a league that allows people to play independent. I like to play indie only because when I played with people I somewhat knew they never showed up, and it was a bitch to get people to make a team. When I play indie, everybody pays, so everybody WANTS to play. Also, I've met some great people that I probably wouldn't have otherwise. (no awesome chicks yet tho... )

I don't really play organized sports anymore. Besides the team I was on (for both softball and volleyball) sort of disintegrated over pointless squabbling. A lot of us still don't talk to each other - 3 years later.

Otherwise, there's the karate 4-5 times a week and running/weights every other day.

Off-set by the chocolate I eat while watching the tube at night, of course.

Snowboarding
Golf
Softball

Played baseball for 8 years. Used to play hoops 2-3 times a week (I was the original 'white chocolate' ).

Entrance into the 'real world' really cut down on my sports time. Hmph.

Intramural football, bowling, tennis, softball. I play golf for myself. I used to play on an ACC team until my eligibility ran out last year, and 90% of the people around here know which one that is (and no, it's not basketball, nor did I ever claim that.)

Softball, football (tackle until this year when we bought flags because we were all getting old and injured), occasional street hockey, and golf a few times each year - until it pisses me off so much that I retire again until the next season.

Tennis, for over 25 years. Here are the highlights of my career.

Ball Boy: In the middle of a match, a dejected Ilie Nastase gave me his racket and urged me to play in his place. I served but the guy on the other side (forgot who it was) didn't return the ball. I won the point but it didn't count.

Lines Judge: Got shouted at by John McEnroe in a doubles match. Screw you John, the ball was out.

Played competitive tennis for a few years but never was good enough to get anywhere. I think my best provincial ranking was 32nd. I now play mostly for fun.

Coached juniors and adults. Now coach a recreational league for adults on Saturday mornings in the summer.

Volunteer as a driver at the Montreal Super 9 tournament every year. Sadly, I've never driven Anna Kournikova.

I'm all for adult dodgeball. I play basketball, tennis, backyard football, baseball, and I walk the treadmill if you call that a sport. I can watch movies while I do that.

Golf - I'm currently in retirement now. Bad round, long story, well I guess it was really because I lost my $10 Scotty Cameron Ball Mark Tool and I couldn't chip with a dog doo. Also the fact that the zipper on my pants busted every time I swung.

Man, I wish they had indie leagues here. Yeah, it is a bitch to try to field a team ...
