There's a sport section here: http://z7.invisionfree.com/thegangoffive/i...hp?showforum=34

I'm sure an admin will move the topic, don't worry :)

I'm not much of a sport fanatic. I love cycling however. I cycle to school 20km each day(from and to school). I also love a match of soccer as long as that is with friends. :)

Why do you refuse to call it Soccer?

I don't like the sound of the word...
furthermore, it is an american term and i prefer to use british english...or at least try to...
Also it is because of the movie Hooligans.   I canot recall the dialogue, but the 'Yankee' Eliah Wood was kindly told to not call the game 'soccer'...I liked that scene...


Additionally I remember, I once took part in shooting sports...and concluded: I don't like it.

Soccer sounds so eerily similar to "sucker" which reflects the opinion of many Americans on the game :lol:
I guess I grew somewhat used to the term since I don't care much about the game (in spite of being from a town with a team, Borrusia Dortmund, that is reknown around the world), but Jason actually told me to call it football during our Scandinavia trip when I always referred to it as soccer. Obviously the English being quite a soccerer nation themselves would not want to sound like suckers either :lol

Hmm, I used to do Hockey and football in school.  That was interesting when I used to hit the object into the enemy's goal...at least in my view I hit it into a goal...:D

In the winter I go skiing, although I've tried snow boarding that was quite scary as I felt I didn't have a lot of control so, skiing is better for me.

I also do tennis.  Having a mother who is a tennis coach helps, due to free lessons.;)  But I have taken part in tournaments and have done pretty good in them.  Unfortuantely due to a couple of circumstances I haven't played properly like I used to and I don't want to compete any more since people cheat and I feel that it just ruins the game for others.  

I also do archery but haven't done that for a while either.

I do sports, mostly skiing and swimming. (if that's even one) I tried out for my schools volleyball team but didn't make it. Guess I just wasn't good enough. <_<

I also tried snowboarding but I wasn't very good at it. I might try it again next year though but I'm a better skier. I love skiing! I'm even going on the bumps now! And I'm getting pretty good at it too. :smile What's even better is I get to go this saturday! I can't wait!

Haha, the bumps...I remember when with the school (we used to ski every winter) I was encouraged to take a jump..just a little jump; more like a bump, I was so suprised that i had made it and not crash landed flat that as I was going down I lost my balance and skied all the way down crouched.

Sadly I don't play any sport at the moment.I really want to do martial arts,and I used to do it,but I can't find a good place now.

As for now,I go jogging or cycling 2-3 times a week with a friend who lives close,and I also do workout three times a week in a gym.I mostly go there alone,only with my media player,though sometimes i meet someone there I know.Barbell bench press is much safer if you have someone to help..
