Fuck you Adso, for trying to obliterate my bandwidth with minions.
It reminds of the time I was intoxicated... bad times.

I would have picked table tennis as it's the only sport I like, but seeing as I really don't like tennis I'll have to pick something else...
I suppose the only other sport I've enjoyed is basket ball, though I only played it in school when I was young and I doubt I'd like it these days.
But really now, it seems a bit unjust to put ping pong in the same group as tennis, while hockey and field hockey get different votes :?

Yeah, that was my bad for not triple checking. Since only Plum, you and me are the only ones to vote so far, I've made a couple of changes.

Nice, I've always been quite fond of ping pong though not terribly good at it :P

My mum and I always enjoyed doing that in the wii bowling game. :lol:

Otherwise i'm not much of a sportsy person and the only school sport I was somewhat decent at was soft ball (When I actually managed to hit the ball that is). Table tennis and bowling are also fun casual sports to do.

Table tennis for me obviously, but I also enjoy normal tennis in the summer. Hoping to go to Wimbledon this year!

If only. It would be a dream to play there rather than spectate.

lol of course people like bowling and ping pong...

My favourites are probably skiing (which I've been doing since I was 10), volleyball and basketball. My parents were professional volleyball players and I'm naturally pretty good at it, and my friend got me into basketball not too long ago and we've been playing a lot.

I enjoy going to hockey games - a long-running past time at this point.

Volleyball was one of my favorite team sports at school, I have fond memories of that, tennis, and American Football!

I'm the baseball, bowling and golf player here. Been playing bowling since '09, golf since '12 and baseball since '14.

I consider bowling the one where I have the most talent. My dad competed in amateur tournaments back in the '80s, and my mom's dad had talent as well. Highest game I've ever bowled was an even 200.

On a whim, Grouse Mountain, which is one of the four local mountains in North Vancouver. I'll head up to Whistler Blackcomb (where the 2010 Olympics snowsports were held; it's the largest ski resort in North America) a few times a year for a few days at a time as well, which is only a three-hour drive north.

That's the good thing about Canada: you don't need to go very high to find snow in the winter. :lol:

I don't really enjoy any activity that requires physical exertion except for short distance sprinting, funnily enough. I just don't have the stamina.
I like arm wrestling, I don't think I've ever lost one before but I haven't arm wrestled anyone in a long while. I suppose I always feel a little uncomfortable asking someone because it's the sort of thing people do to prove their strength, while I just find it fun. Then again I suppose it's not really a sport...

You fiend.

I don't ever come close to participating in arm wrestling contest since a teammate of mine broke his forearm while playing this fucking game.

Turns out he asked for it : his diet consisted mostly of artificial proteins. Without calcium, his skeleton was pretty weak and vulnerable but still, the sound of his breaking bones and the vision of pain that ensued vaccinated a lot of the team that day.

Egh, sounds horrible! I've only played it in the school grounds with other kids, I doubt anyone back then had the capacity to break bones.

Neither did we until that moment.

Then again, the arm breaker was the person who's now the star defensive end of the best american football team in Germany. He weighs 145kg and can bench press 150kg easily.
