    I don't get a lot of opportunities to show this off, but this is me this past summer. I'm barely 5-7 with shoes on ... on a very good day ...

    We should get a TFW basketball game going at the next BotCon! <semi-serious>
    One of these days I'll make it out to one.

    I'm only 5'10" tho, and can come within an inch of only touching the rim #spazz

    Haha, prison ball.

    Seriously though, I've always liked soccer, but I've also played Hockey and done speedskating when I was younger, and I still think Pool is great.

    Played baseball when I was little through high school. Almost joined a club team in college but chose not to (shin splints from running on concrete for 10 years). Can still hold my own though ... you never really lose those skills, they just get rusty.

    And I can beer pong with the best of them. Took out a top seeded team a couple of weeks ago at the local tournament.

    I'm good at hockey and baseball. Hockey is tough because no one wants to play defence except for me, which means I have to be good at it lol. I do not know how to ice skate so I play pickup street/floor hockey primarily.

    I'm NOT good at softball for a couple of reasons:
    1. I can't use a wooden bat. I am used to the weight of a wooden bat, as such my swing timing is off if I use a composite one, since they are usually much lighter.
    2. I can't catch a softball that is in the air, especially on pop-ups. I am really good at catching a baseball, but I attribute my inability to sometimes even come near to where the softball lands due to the size of the ball. I can't judge its range or speed properly.

    Played Baseball and Football during my school days and was pretty good but nothing overly special.

    I had a shot to go further with Baseball but life got in the way.


    I can hold my own at Hockey and most other sports.

    I can't dribble worth a crap at Basketball but i can hit most 3 pointers and jumpers.

    I was pretty good at sports back when I was younger. Grew up playing basketball, baseball, soccer and football. When I got to high school I only played football where I started all 3 years and the strong safety position-I actually still hold a school record for defensive touchdowns scored in a single season (6). Now I'm old and I couldn't imagine playing football anymore.
