If not, why not? Regret not playing?

I did skiing from ages 8-17.

Soccer from ages 6-13 [right/left wing]

I was a pretty good playing in the rec leagues and usually had 1-2 goals a game.

Basketball from ages 7-18 [SG]

Basketball was my love growing up. Played in rec leagues and school teams. Three pointers were my specialty.

Baseball from ages 10-13 [Pitcher/3rd base]

I pitched in little league and pitching was probably my biggest sporting talent. Made the all star team three years in a row. Baseball wasn't my favorite sport because I didn't enjoy it when I was hitting or playing a different position. But let me tell you, the feeling I got being on the mound and striking people out was the greatest feeling I ever got from playing sports.

When the time came to move up to the bigger leagues I kinda got intimidated because the pitchers had more speed and the kids were a lot bigger and were belting em over the fence, so I just quit. I regretted it for a long time.

My sporting highlight:

Throwing a shut out.

My sporting lowlight:

In high school we had to play a deaf school. They had to bang these large drums so they could feel the vibration and know when a whistle/buzzer was being blown. The refs were way to lenient with them and let those fuckers get away with so many fouls. And yeah, they had deaf cheerleaders too. I felt kinda bad, but try to imagine hearing deaf girls screaming and cheering. Yeah...

I had a similar story when I was playing on a church league basketball team in 10th grade, we played a local orphanage and they always got the calls, the coaches always played them soft, my team won by 1 point... the next game we went to against a fellow church league team everyone was like "YOU GUYS BEAT THE ORPHANS WHATS WRONG WITH YOU!?"

Funny fact is one of the orphans scored in their own hoop, so we probably should've lost by 1... we went undefeated that year.

I wanted to play football badly, but health issues prevented it. I have issues with my hip bones, and doctors said that if I were to get tackled in the wrong way I would not be able to walk. I was probably 12 or 13 years old when I found out that I'd never play organized football. I was crushed.

I played little league. Sucked at it. I think the reason I'm not good at it is because I have vision issues where my peripheral vision covers a smaller area than a normal person and is deteriorating, so I cannot see the baseball long enough to make good decisions when to swing. I was able to play pretty decent defense though. But I had no desire to pursue sports any further after I found out about how I would never play football.

I was in wrestling when I was in 3rd grade, then I was in it for 3 days as an 8th grader. I played football Freshman-Junior year in HS. Our team sucked my senior year, and I had a job at an appliance store, so I left da game for the money and fame aka I worked after school and got paid instead of practicing playing a game that the school used to generate income for itself with.

I was a guard on O and center LB on D. I used to call the defensive adjustments on D, and I used to tell the tackle next to me what he needed to do that play on O lol.

Karate for 2 years as a kid if that counts.

Little league baseball for a few years, I sucked.

Football for a few years (6 to 8th grade) I sucked.

I wish I would have gotten into wrestling.

Soccer from 8-18 years old. Halfback most of the time then switched to fullback because I started smoking and couldnt run as much.

Baseball from 8-17 years old. Second base, good at fielding not so much at hitting.

As a kid the only sport I played was basketball. It was my favorite sport growing up.

As an adult I still play ball, but I regret not playing football in high school whenever I play catch with my 8 year old brother. I do want to play softball, but it's hard as hell to find enough people that want to make a team

I was a defensive linemen for six weeks. Around the six week mark I cussed out the coach and hit the third string quarterback with my helmet.


I coulda been a contender.

baseball started at 5 and played through high school. I pitched and played 2nd or third most of the time.

Now I get my competition fix from tennis. It's fun and almost as great a way to stay in shape as suffering from painful rectal cancer.

I was heavy into soccer as youngster. I usually played middle or right halfback. Would've continued playing in High School but I had one of those lame "I'm too cool for school sports" attitude. One of my bigger regrets was not getting more involved because I was pretty good.

i played street football, my knee got pretty messed up the first time. Sbyeas was playing street football in his Sandles one day and slipped on the gravel and might have come up ok, not sure. We won the match, i told the other team to pass me the football and they did so i ran to our touch down zone.
