Interested to know how many athletes post here. I ran Track 200, 400, 800 meters, also The mile if needed. I played Football (American) Strong Safety, Baseball and Basketball. Was looking at a scholarship to Ohio State (Track) opted to go into the military instead, did go back to school when I returned and ran track at Syracuse University. I used Tennis to stay in shape.:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

I'm good at hockey, reigning MVP of my league, as a goalie, it'll be hard this year as other coaches are already looking at me in scrimmages and know where to shoot on me.

High School: Soccer, Tennis and whatever we did in Gym Class (I'm a competitive nut with anything from a jump rope to a hockey stick - they're banning dodge ball because of guys like me :devil: )

College: Soccer, Tennis and Rugby for the school. Volleyball, "Pentathalon", Football, Indoor Soccer and Hockey Intramurals.

Law School: Rugby for the school. Soccer and Softball rec league. Soccer, Football, Hockey, Volleyball, Hoops and whatever the Law School needed an extra player for in Intramurals - we were Frat Boy Killers :lol:

Now: its just Rugby (sometimes normal, sometimes "old boy" events), a little "pick up" soccer and S/V Tennis almost every weekend that I'm not playing Rugby.

Future: When my legs don't work anymore...Golf and Darts ;)

On the more serious tip, anything that I absolutly can't do...

...I tend to be captivated by,

#1 is pole vaulting (blows my mind when I see someone do it at any level and

#2 is gymnastics (I can tumble some of the other things like parallel bars) the uneven bars blow me away, the guys on the rings and anytime someone flips multiple times is just :worship: to me...

...I'm jealous as hell. :feiry:

Sometimes when I think about games I've played in the past or if I'm chasing after/running from people; minor injuries disappear for a while; same thing when I chasing down a drop shot, I don't even feel my legs moving I just flow to the ball - the rush is the reason why I'm still limping around colliding into people "for fun". :cool:

Yup, another thing that happens is that so-called second wind, where it is almost impossible to breathe and you heart feels like it will bust, then you get that second wind and suddenly you are Superman/woman all over again.

Although I hate the sport with a passion, I'm a natural talent at golf. Same with track, I was always told that I should have run for my high school team because I have the perfect build for it, but I hate running. Why run when you can walk? :p

Played tennis for a year and a half in high school, I was decent at it, not all that good really.

Just before a rugby match, on the field waiting for the ball to come to me for the first time, I'm always hyperventilating until the ball is in my hands. It instantly calms me down.

The other thing that calms me down is the first time someone knocks me on my ass :lol:, I guess catching the ball or getting up and realizing I'm still in one piece after a hit are the two things I live my life for :shrug:

When you were a strong safety, did you ever have one of those hits where you caught the guy just right and he goes flying and it feels like he only weighed 20 lbs when you were going through him? :devil:

I think I've figured it out over the years; when you catch a guy as his legs are crossing while he's sprinting...I don't think either foot is touching the ground so he just goes flying head over feet if you catch him right. :smoke:

One of my bosses played minor college football (Div 1 but not a "football factory") and his claim to fame is he 'ear holed' The Boz, of course by the time The Boz got up he was safely on his way to the sideline (hiding behind the bench) :haha:

Tennis first for me. Then golf, and girls baseball. I sometimes play soccer, but i'm not a good dribbler at all, i'm much better at bouncing the ball off my head/chest/thighs. But i'm goalie most of the time.

:tape: I remember one particular game, it was a return match with a team that had buried us earlier in the season. I had taken a lot of verbal abuse from the wide receivers, running backs and even the tight end got in my case, the tight end was especially abusive and said some pretty vile things about my family and me lovely MUM. We were overmatched and I was powerless to do anything about it, so I took my lumps and the shutout loss like a man. I knew we would have to face this team again later in the season so I obtained a picture of the tight end made copies and plotted his demise, we still lost the rematch, but I got mine, I was so amp ed up and mission focused that I sent that poor tight end (tight end was at least 100 lbs heavier than me) to the local hospital, he was not prepared for my revenge fueled fury and lasted only 2 offensive series. So we have adrenaline rush, second winds, and now obsessive revenge that can be the catalyst for another form of "altered state" that could lead to some pretty abnormal behavior and show of strength.:fiery:

The dirtiest player of all time, Conrad Dobler (read his book) made his career off of "obsessive revenge" strength. By no measurable abilities did he belong in the NFL. But because he was so destructive (as in EVIL) he had a fairly long career.

He used any slight; the colleges of the Linemen he was blocking, where they were drafted, whether the team passed on drafting him and he'd even make things up to fill himself with hatred going into a game.

For me there are two kinds of dirty, late hit dirty (which is fine with me) and then there's Conrad dirty - biting, going for knees and eyes, etc.

But when you brought up obsessive revenge his name was the first to enter Me Brain. :lol:

I played competitive tennis for 13 years, including singles and doubles all five years of high school (we had 5 years of high school in Ontario), was on the volleyball team from grade 4 until the end of high school, and I ran the 400m for a few years. I started playing golf a few years ago...I find it relaxing. I'm lucky because I seem to be coordinated enough to pick up most sports fairly quickly.

i think i'm a moderate athlete. if i put the effort in, i can be good at almost any sport (except soccer and baseball) but never excel. it's like those people who have to study really hard to do well in school --- i never had to do that, but i have to do it with sports.

i'd say my best sports are tennis, ping pong, track (200m/400m) and volleyball. i was pretty decent at basketball when i was a kid, but i sorta lost it.

I am good at football! But, I wish i was better at basketball :sad: I swear people think most black guys, (where I live at least) are sensational at basketball but I'm not. I wish I was though. I need to start practicing again but don't think all black guys are naturally gifted in the sport of basketball. Some, including me, have to work extremely hard to be good at it. I am also solid in baseball as well. :)

im very good at soccer, played it my whole life... i come from a big soccer family, all of us are good...my brother is the only exception, he does long and triple jump in high school and is getting offers from division one schools for it. My sister is only a soph in high school but some colleges are showing interest in her already for soccer, mostly villanova and u of virginia so far. Unfortunately for me soccer ended after high school but i still play on like intramural teams at school.
