I hated all sports for years until my 10 year old got me into golf. Now I am addicted to the game. Amazingly relaxing game once you learn how to actually swing the club lol.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

I am on the track team at my highschool. I am a sprinter because they are the coolest. Haha, i am joking around, long distance is good as well. Anyway, I ran varsity my freshman year and now I am top on my team even though I am still one of the youngest.

I used to play rugby, both codes, for about 10/11 years but had to give it up when i moved to manc and got a job - no time to fit it in. I've played in practically every position (apart from full back cuase i can't kick that well) going. In Union though my chosen place is hooker, love getting mixed into the scrum and i basically ran the front pack of our team in sweden (not sure if i'd be able to play hooker over here though, i'm 6ft and unlike in sweden i aint seen many 6ft2/6ft5 props - yep ours where that tall, i was the shortest and one of the lightest in the pack). League i'am a a died in the wool stand off - and a brutal one at that, when i was 16 i had trials for St. Helens to get signed onto thier U21 team (probably because in a NW league cup we played them and i was on of the key reasons they lost). Unfortunalty i didn't listen to thier rules about not playing or training for my normal team to avoid injury, and then promptly had both my knees bent 30 odd degrees the wrong way popping both kneecaps.

When i was younger i boxed for my school for a while (3 years) but then it got banned as the PTA deemed it inappropriate to encourage young lads to fight. OK heavy wieght boxing can cuase all sorts of damage but this was no-where near that heavy and you had the smash helmets on which kept you around. Still get to use my skills though from time to time as i'm a bouncer/pit crew at a local concert veune and have to control all the rock gig crowds (imagine me in full fury wading into a mosh pit to sort something out!).

Currently though the onoly form of exercise (have just signed up to the compnay gym, 25p a week!!!) is me BMXing everwhere i go. Its really good, you have to put a lot more effort in than regualt biking and it really helps with your ankle and lower back strength as you are standing up practically all the time. Managed to cycle up to a place called Lymm Park a few times now onmy BMX. To give youi an idea its a 10 odd mile up hill all the way trek into the peak district from south manchester. Hard work but its awesome up there and heading back is so much fun (downhill all the way!). Have also participated in a fair few proper biking events. The most recent was the manchester to liverpool run which i did on my BMX this year - OMG that was evil. My greatest achievement though is completeing the Vätten Rounden (the swedes may know what i'm on about) basically you are time trialing once round a lake. Said lake though is a 330km run! thats manchester to birmingham AND back.

I also used to do a lot of snowboarding, but this hasn't happened for a few years due to cash constraints. Am defo gonna sort this one out though. Gonna get away at least twice this year (again cash just a bit too tight this year), maybe one of those will be to japan - so cool.

Also have done a number of more stupid extreme events like sky diving, free fall (bungee jumping without a bungee) and several bungee jumps (even did the biggest in Europe). Love that shit!
