Boy, I sure do love sports.
I have a bit of a history with golf; care to share yours?Well I realised that I haven't shared my various excursions into the world of sports, so I thought I'd give you a rundown of various one's I've played/participated in over the years. I did use to compete in some but I don't have the time or skill to do them more than recreationally now.
Here's the list:
Football, Cricket, Rugby, Golf, Sailing, Rowing, Kayaking, Abseiling, Rock Climbing, Cycling, Javelin, Paddle-boarding, Karate, Dodge ball, Cross country running, Badminton, Tennis, Archery, Fencing and Motorsports.
There's probably more I've forgotten about but they don't matter too much. Feel free to ask about any of them, most have a story or two attached some of which are pretty weird.
I read this post with @Avidro over my shoulder reading along, and as we got to the end he took my mouse and put the cursor over the "Like" button for me so that all I'd have to do was clickOne of my random sporting memories came back today and I thought you guys might enjoy it.
So I went to school with a guy who had the misfortune of having the surname Codd. During the winter we had football (the one where the ball is round and you use your feet) as our P.E lesson and being a rather poor athlete he was elected to play as goalkeeper for the opposing team. Cut to partway through the match and the ball goes out behind his goal so since the webbing wasn't secured to the ground he went to go through it instead of round the posts, and gets himself tangled in it. That's when I heard the teacher shout "QUICK REEL 'IM IN CODD'S CAUGHT IN THE NET!". I'm not sure whether I'm more surprised the teacher said that or upset I didn't come up with it first.
Disclaimer: I did get on with the lad I mentioned here, and he did have a laugh about it too at the time.
