    I dont *do* sport anymore, though I was an accomplished squash player in my younger days. These days though I dont participate, watch alot of it though, everything from figure skating (which, oddly for a guy, I think is great) to american football

    Re: Sport and Geeking/IT

    I used to be very sporty. loved playing football and watching it also. Now i only watch occasionally (usually England games) and havent played in over a year..... I really cut back on playing once i discovered the magical thing of beer. followed by kebabs..... and occasionally women (not necessarily in that order)

    Does walking to the pub/takeaway/home count?

    Re: Sport and Geeking/IT

    I keep the front up of no sport for the IT image.

    But do plenty of climbing, bit of extreme frisbee, enjoy swimming, tried a bit of free-running (though stumble at the running bit), bit of power kiting and am a Scout Leader so inevitably ending up on in the middle of no-where walking to another no-where while shepherding small people.

    Part from that though not really a sport person. Only watch football if I'm with others that do and have to as a group activity, bit of rugby watching if it gets exciting and thats about it.

    Re: Sport and Geeking/IT

    I used to do a lot of sport and now I feel like an old man before my 30th birthday. Currently not doing much apart from walking the dog :P . I have plans for a punch bag when I move soon though

    I play 5 a side on a friday every now and then but it's only for the beer at the end of it.

    I find that hitting the gym, when time permits, helps me destress from a day at school.

    Something about pounding the crap out of a punch bag............

    Re: Sport and Geeking/IT

    Can't believe I'm going to admit this but I linedance! Computers and linedancing I am definately odd!
    Used to play league badminton but suddenly found everyone was younger, slimmer, fitter and looked better in sports gear than me so gave up!
    Like watching basketball, particually when my youngest son plays, for a non contact sport it's surprising aggressive, think this gets rid of my aggression in a proxy sort of way.

    I cycle to school every day and swim regularly... Gave up the kayak after a back injury a couple of years ago!
