Hi Everyone I got this idea from reading the AFL thread so I decided to make a new thread about this.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE SPORT ? ?
What sports do you also enjoy watching ? ?
My favourite sport is most likely going to be Rowing as I do this (rowing) for my school. It's a pretty good sport. I particularly enjoy watching swimming, athletics and tennis. Cricket and Soccer aren't too bad, I prefer it to rugby and AFL (sorry guys )
Exciting Sports News: Sam Stosur has beaten Justine Henin a while ago and has now beaten Serena Williams last night at the French Open!! Yes!! Go Australia!!! . She is now against Former World #1 Jelena Jankovic in the SEMI FINALS!!!! Can Stosur do it?? Can she get Australia back??? I can't wait!!!
You can also use this thread to discuss any sports related news and events. Last edited:
My favourite sports to play are definitely Badminton and Tennis. Favourite to watch by far is Tennis, but I do also enjoy watching AFL on the rare occasion and the FIFA World Cup is alright. I also like gymnastics and wrestling can be good too.
Channel 9 are showing the Semi Final between Sam Stosur and Jelena Jankovic Live at 11:15pm AEST TONIGHT! I for one can't wait.
Quite enjoy this sport even though I've never really been that good at it. I once shot a real gun out at sea (not at anyone or another boat though)
Tennis has been a sport I've always wanted to be good at. I've often struggled with this seemingly simple activity but somehow I still like it. Mind you, it's great on television.
Come on. Who's never thought of punching someone's lights out. Apart from that, (from a sporting perspective) one of many sports to bring out legends. Mike Tyson anyone?
This sport always brings me great (well, maybe not so great) memories of the day that I kept falling out of my kayak. I really don't know what the problem was. Still, a great activity.
On television it can be great. I remember back in my day we had WCW not WWE. Instead of John Cena we had Owen Hart. It only makes it this high on the list because it's actually not as fun to play in real life (trust me, I've been there, done that, got the t-shirt etc etc).
Archery targets it's way into this list because of it's accuracy (literally). While I probably prefer darts, I think of Archery as more of a sport so...Bullseye!
Good and bad memories for me on this. It's kind of fun to watch however and you just gotta love the balance beam.
Great to play but I think there might be something missing to the overall layout of the game. Haeven't played this since circa 2002.
I've always been rather mixed on this sport. I used to be great at serving however. I recall in 1997 my school teacher jumping over the net. I don't know how she managed though.
On paper, this could be a lot better. Still, in many ways, a great way to keep fit. I can remember our school "olympics". I think I might have come 3rd in high jump but I never won a "gold medal".
I just had to reserve this for the top ten. My favourite golf memory might be the golf hole that my grandfather added in his backyard. Only putting was necessary though. I was also quite amused in the mid-90s by Mr. Bean's game of golf in the episode "Tee Off Mr. Bean". My second favourite episode of the series. There are many aspects that make golf a real "hole-in-one". Hence, golfers usually wear two pairs of pants.
If it wasn't so similar to Basketball, and if more men played it, this may have even made the top five. 2004 was very much a netball year for me. I remember long summer (and winter) days playing this. Good times.
In my opinion, the far superior form of tennis. In 2006, I was on the winning doubles team in a championship. My partner did most of the work, though. Shuttlecocks look cool.
A sport that Americans just go animal over. But that's okay, because it's really that good. I remember in school a student who nobody thought was any good at sports and he scored an easy home run with an incredible hit. Wished that was me.
A great sport to play, not very fun to watch. In 2006 I used to refer to it as "soccer with walking sticks", even though we are not whacking around a round ball.
This sport barely makes the top five, but it earns its place. Good to play, great entertainment live. I remember attending a basketball match when a man in the audience went psycho and screamed (literally, i tell you) for a new referee. I was surprised to see him sit down smiling.
More for rugby union than anything else, the best sport to watch by far. While Australia do tend to be the weakest in the Tri-nations (and the Super 14), the Wallabies are still third in the world behind only South Africa in second and you-know-who in first. I'll never forget that match last year when the Wallabies were going for a grand slam but a missed conversion led to a 9 - 8 win for Scotland. What a close match!
I don't really swim much anymore but freestyle and breakstroke were always at the top of the table for me. The pools or even the ocean -- really great place to be. Though it would be fun to be a rubber duck and float across the bathtub.
Australia and England compete for the Ashes in a game complete with yorkers, runs, wickets, bats...the sport is just great. Circa 2001 were my days of great cricket. Seems such a long time ago now.
Come on. What else would be number one? This game, in many ways are perfect. In 2002, I was absolutley addicted to this game to the point I played every day (yes, every day for over an hour). This obsession of mine made a short recovery nearly have a decade later in the first half of 2007 but some idiots took the goalposts away. Looking foward to the world cup. GO BRAZIL!!!!
Something that would bore most of the people but I have really been hooked to F1 for the longest time. I think that the sole idea of being able to go up to speeds and race side by side against other drivers totally suits me. But I know that it is dangerous so it would be something that would be done with in utmost care and precision. My favorite team would have to be Ferrari and I hope they win the championship this time.
