This might be kind of an unpopular topic but I'm bored and am posting in case it doesn't get ignored or get me pelted with rotten tomatoes lol. I like sports but casually, and I like them more for the game itself and the fun - I don't really have much interest in specific players or stats or whatever and don't watch much tv. I also much prefer playing to watching. That's partly because in general I feel like a lot of my life has been passive and been watching other people do things I want to; enough of that for me lol. Get me tf on the field/court/rink! I do watch some of it, but I much prefer to be doing. I've never played on a team or official group or whatever yet for a number of reasons, but ones I've had fun trying casually are tennis, soccer, and lacrosse. I'm a simple man, okay, I enjoy yeeting things with a stick, defending a goal, and hitting things across a court. xD It's also always amusing when me or somebody hits it over the fence or takes a mudslide or something, as long as no one gets hurt. I live for good laughs - what's life without humor?? For me it's an opportunity to have fun, do something that's natural and fun to me, and feel alive. When I'm playing sports, even if it's just extremely casual and even if none of us are good at it or trying to be good, I'm having the time of my life. Whether at the given moment I'm in the mood to practice/improve or just have some silly fun with friends, I love it. Tennis is nice because it only requires two people and not much equipment, and it's fun. It has nothing, at least certainly not for casual players, to do with size or height and has so little safety risks. I'm not stuck passing it up because I'd get pancaked/am not allowed to play/can't afford stuff for it, etc. I'm a very short person but I can cover a lot of ground quickly, so I love being able to make ridiculous saves. Soccer requires more people but practically no equipment. I only know the basic rules and things for the sports I like, but that's all you really need to play casually and get started! Soccer was one of the major "I can" experiences in life and I still love the fond memory I have. I've played once, a language club game in high school (as a freshmen or sophomore, I think). I signed up last minute on a "oh what the hell, I'll try" whim. It started with me being clueless, nervous, and especially seeing a lot of the other people who were bigger and fitter than me and at least some of whom probably knew more than my zero-knowledge, was wondering wtf I'd gotten myself into lmao. I thought, oh my god, I'm probably gonna make a fool of myself, what am I doing, but I signed up, so might as well try. I played defense and it was some of the most fun I've had in my life, and was one of those awesome experiences where I overcame a fear/doubt and also found something I love! Little, clueless, un-confident me actually won MVP! I played as hard as I could the entire time. Everyone had fun too. Me and my attacker, at one point, mud-slid into each other because the field was crappy and muddy, and we just laughed about it. No one got hurt. I came home covered in mud and sweat. It was awesome! I've only recently added lacrosse to my 'hobby hoard,' and have only done extremely basic stuff and haven't really played with more than 2 other people yet, but it's fun and interesting so far. A sport I'd never payed attention to, mainly because I was clueless about it and thought I'd be horrible at it so why even bother, actually comes kinda naturally to me! Finally, a sport I actually did but quit - sort of - is figure skating. I quit because I was exhausted and overloaded with school, and because not being out (and competing in the wrong category) eventually made me lose my enthusiasm for it. No fault of the sport or my coaches or fellow skaters tho. It was fun. Like so many other things in my life, I picked it up seemingly out of nowhere and tbh probably as part of an interest or hyperfixation lmao. I'd watched the Sochi Olympics and despite wanting nothing to do with either ice or roller skating for my whole life so far (I always was afraid I'd fall and seriously hurt myself lmao), for whatever reason, I was like omg I gotta try that. In a few years I'd become one of my coaches' top students! I loved it. I still do it casually. A routine and music isn't really my thing, but I do enjoy skating just for skating's sake. The jumps and some simple footwork tricks are my favorite skating things. Sorry for this wall of text and props to anyone who actually uhh...managed to read this haha. ^^" Anyway I wanna hear from yall now! Also, please tell me if it's possible to add a spoiler on this site. I don't want to bore people or make people ignore/quit a topic, but I also don't always want to shorten and lessen what I'm saying.
