I took Sports as one of my main subjects in school, that should be answer enough..

Due to that I have done a lot of the above, though I take active part in Football, Rugby and Boxing when I have the time to do so. Wouldn't it have been easier just to put Boxing, Martial Arts ect under Combat Sports though?

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

I have, at various times, played soccer, baseball, wrestled, thrown shot and disc, and played football (you know, the manly game where we hit twice as hard as those rugby tossers).

These days, mostly the competitive drinkin'.

I do all sports whenever I get the chance to be honest. I'm also a freerunner, which isn't technically a sport...Oh and I cycle everywhere.

I spend most of my time doing sport, which is why the 'geeks are lazy' stereotype annoys me, even if it is true to a certain extent :/

Voted for athletics, I have tried almost all the sports on the list. I am getting more into the outdoor solo sports; rock climbing, trail running, kayaking, and starting to learn how to do all the swim forms. One thing I have started recently and loving it is weight lifting, getting gains weekly and its just motivating as everything.

Indoor Cricket. Champion sport. Have taken up cycling in th last 6 months. Cross country and a bit of freeride/downhill. Not seriously into the last two as the bike upgrade would kill me financially. I clock up about 100-150km a week.
Varakir, what do you ride? I have an old 2003 norco vps.
