Okay, I've gotta lighten up a bit. I just spent an hour spouting various theological theories and it's a bit much. Don't get me wrong, I lurrrve that stuff, but I also love sports!<br><br><br><br>
Point is, I was always as much of a jock as I was a vegetarian but somehow, even now into my mid-twenties, there's still this thing where I'm the "weird vegetable guy" when I'm pounding beers during a Redskins game because I'm not eating wings, but I'm also the "dumb jock" when I'm at the co-op meetings because I'm still wearing my beer-soaked Redskins jersey!<br><br><br><br>
Can't we all just get along? Well, we do all get along, but still, why the gulf? Anyone else a veg-jock(ette)?<br><br><br><br>
off to work...

I played varsity softball in high school too.<br><br><br><br>
I LOVE live sports. I'm not much of a football (American football, I mean) fan, but I enjoy just about everything else. Atlanta is easily my favorite baseball team (Pleeeeaase Atlanta, don't let Philly take Glavine!) and I diggeth the St. Louis Blues as far as NHL goes. Baseball and hockey. Mmmmm....

Sometimes I think that's the only sport that should exist! I'll drink to that...

Played a lot of sports in high school....played point guard in baskeball, liked to smack people real hard from the safety position in football and even got to be a captain, which was cool cause I was only 135lbs my senior year. When I started playing football my freshman year I only weighed 90 pounds and got the tar beat ouf of me. I worked hard and learned to hit low and if nothing else gained some respect before it was all finished. Other than that I dabbled in baseball and pretty much sucked and ran the 1 mile and 2 mile in highschool track and finally cracked the school the school record my senior year. I am highly competitive so I always enjoyed sports whether it was team or individual.<br><br><br><br>
Sports also landed me an opportunity to meet my wife, whom I met in track. I'm sure I've gone over that one before....she was awesome....she ran the 100 and 200m and was a burner and qualified for the state meet her last three years of high school. One funny note too, we once ran in one of those Jack in Jill relay meets. I was running a 200m dash and I had to hand off to Cyndi. I started looking at her ass and she dropped the batton. Everyone was so pissed at us for losing the race, I was happy though....5 minutes later we were snuggled under a blanky innocently making out<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> ooooohhhh the memories..<br><br><br><br>
Also Cyndi was one hell of a hottie cheerleader. I still keep up all her cheerleader pics next to my pc and out my workshop....To die for baby!!!

I used to play volleyball in a church league, but had to quit because college has a way of excluding all other activities. As I've been telling Funkified, my family and I enjoy bicycle trips, too.

MRB,<br><br>
I heard about Thome. Did he want to get away from the lake-effect snow, perhaps? With all those away games and training in Florida, snow probably wasn't much of a factor. On the other hand, I have no idea what the snow's like in Philly.<br><br><br><br>
The Indians keep trading away or losing all of the players that they had back when I was even remotely a fan of them. The fewer familiar names to me they have, the less likely I am to want to renew an interest in baseball.

Laura and I have become big fans of women's basketball because it is possible to get into a game without paying tons of money or being a university chancelor. In terms of TV I tend to be fan of geek sports like Full Metal Challenge <a href="http://tlc.discovery.com/fansites/fmc/fmc.html" target="_blank">http://tlc.discovery.com/fansites/fmc/fmc.html</a>

Right on! I get into local football and basketball for the same reason.<br><br>
One thing I miss about being at the U. of MD - huge sporting events for free. Sure, I had to sleep at the fieldhouse for the big tickets, but even that was a blast.

I was a pretty serious competitive dinghy sailor for a number of years. Now I am a competitive dinghy sailor without any money. I can no longer travel across North America in a van all summer, sailing every regatta that comes my way- and since I can't do that I'm SO out of the loop. I want to train around here again this summer, if possible.<br><br><br><br>
Some people think sailing is not athletic. Well let me tell you, it sure as hell is when it looks like this:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.ics.uci.edu/~truesdel/images/ellabache.a.gif" target="_blank">http://www.ics.uci.edu/~truesdel/images/ellabache.a.gif</a><br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.ics.uci.edu/~truesdel/images/men.at.work.gif" target="_blank">http://www.ics.uci.edu/~truesdel/images/men.at.work.gif</a>

Did someone say...SPORTS?<br><br><br><br>
I played football and basketball for the most part. Linebacker/tight end in football, and I was a small forward or power forward in basketball. I still love both, but I play football rarely. I still play basketball fairly regularly - except when my backk and knees are giving me problems. (I was a hard hitter in both sports - back before I had enough sense to tale care of my body after injuries. I still feel the effects on winter mornings, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.)<br><br><br><br>
I have been coaching football and basketball for some time.<br><br><br><br>
I did play one game of organized soccer. I got ejected for clotheslining an opponent. Never went back. (He deserved it - gave me a cheap shot and all he got was a card waved at him.)

A friend of mine offered me two free tickets to go see the Cleveland Force (hockey), but I haven't gone yet. I was originally planning to take my bf and go, but then we broke up, and I am having a hard time finding someone else who is willing to go. I can't remember the last time I was at a hockey game, but free tickets are free tickets!

I dislike particpating in competitive sports, and watching it sort of bores me unless it is Rugby League, Rugby (when the All Blacks play and during Super 12), and decent Soccer ...<br><br><br><br>
but, in my defence I am not some slack arse layabout,<br><br><br><br>
As I do 3 hrs Yoga a day (a bit less on Sundays), work out hard 3 or 4 times a week at the gym, and also teach Yoga and Zen (a mixture of Yoga, Tai Chi & Pilates) Classes 6 times a week at the same gym.<br><br><br><br>
When I'm not doing that I'm either working, chilling to music or sleeping.
