Hi Mike

Welcome to the forums. So what can we all do to kick this thread into life?

What other sports do you all like playing/watching?

Re: The "let's make this the greatest chat thread ever" chat thread

I like to play a lot of sports. Other than tennis, I play basketball and soccer/football in organized leagues. When I was little I played baseball, but I stopped a few years later. I like baseball, but just for fun, not serious baseball. I also like playing volleyball, American football, mini golf (real golf is), team handball, kickball, dodgeball, and bocce. I'm sure there's more I just can't think of them
As for watching, I enjoy watching any sport. I like the Olympics a lot (Summer Olympics) sinced they have so many sports. I watch basketball, baseball, soccer/football, occasional volleybal, track&field (in the Olympics), and everything else except boring golf
And of course tennis

So I'm a sports freak, but I only really follow tennis, basketball, and some soccer/football. I used to be crazy about American football and baseball, but now I don't have the time since I like tennis more

Re: The "let's make this the greatest chat thread ever" chat thread

Well, I do not play much sport these days. Hoping to pick up tennis again soon and used to play some soccer/football.

Most of my time is spend only watching it now. Love tennis, ice hockey, motor racing and football/soccer.

Follow the NHL?

I go for Detroit, still shattered at the SC Finals. Other than Sorana, the past 1-2 months haven't been good for me sports wise.

Sabres fan here so no need to talk to me about sporting failure, lol

I was actually cheering for the Wings in the Finals, anyone to stop the Crosby bandwagon :P

To give you an idea of my sporting heritage (failures).

Goran Ivanisevic (came good in the end though)
Jean Alesi (F1) only one 1 race but had bags of talent.
Felipe Massa (F1) should have been World Champion last year but the team let him down at crucial moments.
Buffalo Sabres (NHL) 1999 Stanley Cup...lost in Game 6 to a Brett Hull (NO GOAL! lol)
Miami Dolphins (NFL) Been nowhere for years, had worst record in history 2 years ago.
Tottenham Hotspur (Football/soccer) Perennial underachievers

Oh and add Dani H and Nicole V to my list and I should be suicidal by now, lol

So Sori and Sabine did me proud this last month or so

Re: The "let's make this the greatest chat thread ever" chat thread

I don't mind Buffalo, your team was quite good there for a while now you're struggling again.

Ivanisevic, I can't say I was a fan, and him beating Rafter in the Wimbledon final was one of the more shattering things I've seen. No doubt he deserved one but against Pat?

Yeah I follow F1 too, Webber obviously my favourite. So fair to say I've done it tough following him over the years. Getting better now though, now that he's got a reliable car.

Don't know much about NFL or soccer, they'd be two sports I no nothing about. Pretty much every other sport I'm obssessed with. Looks like most of this board are the same.

Re: The "let's make this the greatest chat thread ever" chat thread

Yeah, Buffalo still haven't recovered from losing both Briere and Drury the same summer

Goran, yeah can understand that. Pat was indeed one of the good guys. It's just I had supported Goran from the beginning, stupid reason I know but we are the same height, left handed and I loved his serve (IMO the best there has ever been, most guys can hit harder than him these days yet his placement was incredible). Can see why people wouldn't like his game though (or lack of).
Sunday did actually bring it all back, Roddick should have a chat with Goran after losing his third Wimbledon final.

Oh so you like F1 too, at least we can chat about that on this thread too. Webber is cool, met him at Silverstone when he was a test driver still. Genuinely nice guy unlike Britains own Hamilton. As you can see my patriotism is pretty weak when it comes to sport, lol

Re: The "let's make this the greatest chat thread ever" chat thread

This song has been so popular for Greeks outside of Greece, so I assume it is popular in Greece although I check the national top 10 chart weekly and haven't seen it yet, but maybe it's developing



Do you guys like it?
