C++ programming is with out a doubt the best sport.
If A equals success, then the formula is: A = X + Y + Z, X is work. Y is play. Z is keep your mouth shut.
I'm with you on that one!Rugby is definattly my favorite sport. Can't beat Rugby!!!
To play (team): soccer. Even if you're not great at it, it is still the most physically demanding sport, as said in Dogma. It is quite a thrill to chase after the ball and stop the other team from scoring. Scoring goals of your own is even more fun.
To engage in (solo): bicycling. Riding down a nice riverside trail on a pleasant summer afternoon is fun and good exercise. Swimming is also enjoyable, but, at least the way I do it, it is more of a leisure or exercise than sport.
To watch: baseball. If you've ever been to Busch Stadium, there is a certain aura about the place. Baseball is deeply embedded, along with soccer, in the culture of St. Louis (the Cardinals).
New (to me): I have recently started to play tennis, and it can be fun--when I can keep the ball inside the court. I'm improving; it's too bad winter has prevented me from continuing to develop skill in this activity.
To play/watch (team): American football, basketball, hockey.
To watch: The Olympics (winter and summer)
Not familiar with:
I have neither played nor watched the peculiar "British" sports of cricket or rugby. Like many Americans, I only have the vaguest understanding of the rules of these games and what typically happens in them.
Isn't this the phrase used by those who would have sports like soccer, American football, basketball, rugby, Extreme Shuffleboard (R), etc. banned from schools and public culture--like cockfighting was? I think kids should be allowed to continue to enjoy these sports, but high schools should not focus on the men's varsity football team or soccer team as much as many do: School is for academics first.
That's one of the things that gets me. There is so much coverage of other sports, but you never see anything on rugby in America.I have neither played nor watched the peculiar "British" sports of cricket or rugby. Like many Americans, I only have the vaguest understanding of the rules of these games and what typically happens in them.
It's so hard for people to become exposed to it.
Also, I agree that schools need to put academics first.
I saw Rugby so much when I went to England. That and soccer. I was there when they won the soccer championship. Good sports.
Yeah! Rugby is an awsome sport. Anyone who hasn't been exposed to it should be. In my opinion anyways.
