  1. Hemi loves me dude! I play the extreme-right-wing card all the time when he's here.
     
  2. To him you're just a brown horsehitty eating prick. It doesn't matter what your views are, the color of your skin dictates who you are.

    But seriously, we've had some good conversations about leftist trashbags.
     
  4. I've been to a lacrosse game. It was popular a bit back.
     
  5. Why yes...i'm drinking right now!
    bwah ha ha

     
  6. National sports rugby, which I never played, but I played our national summer sport, cricket, for about 16-17 years competitivly.
     
  7. I played Pop Warner (American) football for one year and always played it just screwing around when I was younger. I haven't played it in a long time though. I just play catch and run routes and stuff.

    I never really played baseball other than in school and occasionally with friends.

    I've recently (within the last few years) really got into basketball and if I'm playing a sport, that's what I play ~90% of the time. I'd say I play it four or five times a week on average, though usually it's just me or some 1-on-1 21. Though, for a while I played at least 3-on-3 or 4-on-4 once a week. I thought I was going to be playing some 3/4-on-3/4 today, but I guess that fell through. Bummer.

    EDIT: I'd kind of like to join of the the softball leagues (beer leagues) though. My roommate was in one for a "season" last year. Seems like it could be fun. I have a pretty good arm, but kind of suck at batting (though, it's pretty slow pitching, so I'm sure I'd be fine).

  9. I played baseball.
     
  10. I play football and basketball pretty often.
     
  11. I used to play football and was rather good, at 12/13 I tested for FC Porto but they said I was "too short" to be a goal keeper. After that I pretty much stopped playing. Now I do it every once in a while for shits and giggles
     
  12. used to play some baseball. still play catch now and then
     
  13. I'm an American, and no, I do not compete in eating contests.
     
  14. catch the women?
     
  15. +1
     
  16. Rugby is the National Sport here, I have only played it socially.
    Played Soccer until I was 18. Played Cricket until I was 29.
     
  17. I played baseball back in the day. Then I moved to a different city and all of the people who played baseball were doucherockets, so I stopped and played more soccer.
     
  18. The only national sport I've done competitively is Thailand's.

    I consider soccer/football *the* international sport.

    beer league hockey is the closest I get to ours.
     
  19. Cricket and Rugby, I'm not bad at either. I'm actually better at Soccer but I got bored of them after playing since I was 6. I'm good enough at Rugby and Cricket that I could play it for kicks without looking like a dumbass but not world class.
     
  20. Yeah, I used to like hockey off and on, indoor mainly, would have joined street. My grade 8 teacher was obsessed with it, and often we'd turn our classroom, which was 2 put together, into a rink and go haffers with the class. Good times.

    Lacrosse, no. I never was good at it, and I found it a bit difficult to play.
     
  21. No, Basketball instead of baseball.
     
  22. I play everything...Baseball, Basketball, Football, Soccer, Cricket, Tennis, Ping Pong you name it. I'm one of those natural athletes.
     
  23. We don't really have a national sport, but I've played or continue to play many of the ones that are popular.
     
  24. Football is the national sport, so sayeth the NFL.
