Sorry if I left anything realy important out....it's late and I haven't had sleep for the past like 36 hours biggrin.gif Okie...well I was just curious soo...yeah.

Alrighty then, later

Did you know that Santa got caught in my chimney and I can't get him unstucked! I tried everything....Santa B Gone spray, poking him with a stick, I even stopped giving him food hoping he'd loose some weight, but to no avail. At least the raindeer are gone. A snowman named Earnest took them to the South Pole! Hey wait, I know...I'll start a fire...that should get his jelly belly out of there real quick...muahaha

I love to watch soccer and hockey, but my favorite to play (although I don't play it very well) is volleyball, so it got my vote.

that's pretty much exactly what I was going to say...!

cricket is the greatest game in the world - but football (OK, "soccer") runs it a close second.

I voted for Others since my favorite sport is not there.

I love archery. I spent a year's worth of physical education in the university for that. It's so cool!!! I'm no Legolas wannabe, by the way. biggrin.gif

I ride horses! I love show jumping! My heart leaps at every jump! My horse is awesome too! He makes everything so easy! He never stops in front of a jump! He never bits or bucks. you can walk under him and he wouldnt mind! The only problem is he like to play in puddles....... When it rains in the ring he likes to jump in the puddles! He looks so cute doing it but when all the water ends up on you are your new saddle.... not cute anymore. dry.gif

I dance. Ballet, jazz, lyrical, tap...all those. And I do consider dance a sport. I mean it is isn't it? biggrin.gif. I take my dance VERY seriously. it's just like any other sport! Anyone who doesn't believe dance is a sport will have to answer to me(jk. I have to argue about this with people alot. Some people still insist it isn't a sport! It's as much a sport as Gymnastics or Ice Skating!!!)!

Dancing? A sport?

Isn't it more like art? Like theatre, and such. O.o

Cheerleading is a sport, though.

Not that hailey cheerleads.

Not that there's anything wrong with cheerleading.

Uhm, yes, hi. *smiles*.

I would have to say Lacrosse is the best sport out there~ Only if quidditch could be real to us muggles.... but no, im sticking with lax! I find it brillantly fast! Its the so called "Fastest sport on foot" which i believe, considering we have to run 5 miles every practice! Which is every day! They're trying to kill us!

Ooh, I watched a lot of cricket when I was out of the country. Nice game, yesyes, but I don't play it.
I love to watch Ice Hockey (GO LEAFS!), Football/Soccer, and I snowboard, but the main sport I play is basketball, so that won my vote. laugh.gif
[Edit]- lol, I just remembered this guy on the English cricket team, named Jeremy Snape. Isn't that spiffing?

i love hockey! best sport ever! i play goalie and right wing.
GO FLYERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ph34r.gif

cheerleading isnt really a sport. i mean its like, yell and scream and dance. look im doin that right now! although if its in competition it is i guess. but thats basically gymnastics. cheering for another sport isn't a sport tho. its cheering for you team get it CHEERleaders.

thats just my opinion tho. its good to see so many people interested in it as an activity.

please don't hurt me!!but actually, this is the definition from my world book encyclopedia
CHEERLEADING is a colorful American sports tradition in which people called cheerleaders direct spectators in organized cheering during athletic events. and it goes on to give a description of the agegroup and when it was started and stuff. see its a sports tradition like eating a hotdog at a baseball game tho thats not a sport. ( i don not consider competative eating a sport. it is an act of ultimate overindulgence. yeah its funny to watch but its not athletic and therefore not a sport) tho wait a minute i guess cheerleading is a sport because it is athletic. but wait jogging is athletic but its not a sport, as is weightlifting....... oh well i confused myself but i guess it is basically gymnastics which is a sport...... so i guess it could be considered a subsport, a part of the large sport of gymnastics, like flag football, touchfootball and tackle football are part of the large sport of football. its still as important as any sport tho. it helps our teams rally and 'vanquish the enemy foes' so it is a subsport. liike the different kinds of football, or hockey(roller, ice, field, floor,)and it is important to our teams to see people cheering for them so yeah it is a subsport, but it is still very important to the team.



wow that was mostly rambling this is already way too long so ow i'm just gonna back away from the keyboard slowly.........
