Guys,
Going along the lines of Joe's topic of Favourite things.
What sort of sport do you like to play and /or watch?.
I for one like to play, during the Summer months, a good game of Cricket.
I've played Cricket ever since I was 6 years old and being no good at all at bowling, they made me a wicket-keeper(the guy that catches the ball, if the batsman doesn't hit it).
Being 6'4" these days has an interesting bent to it, but I'm willing to hear your stories.
I also played as a Lock in a Rugby Union team too.
I coach kids these days for indoor and outdoor cricket.
What was your position in the team at school or there after?.
Just curious guys.
No pressure here my friends!. [Linked Image]
Oh and by the way, was your coach as highly strung as what mine was?. [Linked Image]

I spent friday digging, then filling, a 160 ft. trench- and you expect me to even think about anything involving exertion?

Volleyball - even though I'm only 5'2" I was an agressive player. We used to call it 'tackle volleyball' when it got a little rough.

I enjoy walking around the golf course w/ my hubby, Ed, and hope to start playing soon. I enjoy watching it on TV, too, as I enjoy the calm, the large expanses of greenery, and the fact that I can walk away and not miss much action.

We did have Nascar races on last night but I passed through once in a while and didn't have to watch or listen to the roundy-round and RPM business. [Linked Image] I'm with Larry the Cable Guy on Nastard...they ought to have their wives ride with them..."you been goin' around in circles for hours and you won't stop for directions. Now, pull over I need to [go to the restroom]...." (Of course, I'll probably be booted out of the family tree for this comment, too, as both of my parents, some uncles, and my sister have all raced on minor circuits...

Cricket, at school in summer, Rugby at school in winter. Flying model aeroplanes. I used to love cross country running too, and riding horses. Any non-brit/anzacs won't appreciate how hard that cricket ball is Mike! - Aimed at you from 22 yards and doing over 100 mph is no sport for the faint hearted, epecially from a fast spin bowler. It hurt even when it hit your pads or box, (a doo-hickey to protect your nethers!). And we never had no sissy hard hats/face mesh either- All Denis Compton had was brilliantine to lubricate the ball off his bonce! And you're welcome to the keeper's job Mike - you've got to stop 6 of the things every over! Later, pistol shooting targets with revolvers, semi-autos and a single shot 12" long-barrel BSA target pistol- that was a beaut! All confiscated after Dunblane, of course,- can't own a handgun in the UK now unless your a gangster!. Now, I like a game of dominoes, cribbage and pool once a week at the bar. I used to be a dab hand with a 12 gage when you could still eat the rabbits, before Myxy, but those days are long gone.

PS. Fred. Would that be varmit hunting on a bicycle? Sounds a good laugh!-
Ding! Ding! Boom! Eeeek!
