Default Sporty Geeks?

So, I was thinking that people into hobbies such as ours have a reputation for being somewhat geeky and not very sporty. I was wondering just how true this is. So, in the poll I tried to cover most of the sports from the geographic regions largely represented on these boards, ie Europe, N. America and Australasia. Feel free to mention anything I missed.

Personally, I play rugby, and have dabbled in various martial arts for many years.

Edit: I just realised that you can only vote for one option, and people may partake in several sports, so just mentions it in your post.

Baseball, football (the real football where we knock the shit out of each other) and bowling.

Is drinking a sport? It has become competitive in the past.

I played soccer for many years. I played rugby, martial arts, track and field as well as competitive weight lifting for a few years.

Now I'm like Unforgiven and just go for the competitive drinking.

Play alot of Football. The real football, you know the one where you use your foot, hence the name. What you play is Rugby with armour plating ^^

Like a bit of Cricket now and then. Judo, MMA, Sprinting, Squash, Snowboarding, Climbing and more Football round it off.

I didn't know that American's watched the Championship or the Nationwides? I thought you watched all that American Turtle Mating stuff?

=D

I play Football (Soccer, Fist? Vaz am disappoint), RU, RL, Boxing, Golf, Running, Hockey (not ice) and I swim.

Other stuff is also scuba, sports jumping and rock climbing. I would mountaineering, but I hate it.

Edit - Aww, come on. To be fair, Andy Fordham is a legend. And he also did lose shit loads of weight -
