Does/Did anyone here play sports? Answered

Does or has anyone here played sports? Which sport did you play? Were you pro? I'm currently trying out for my football team at school, so if I make it, my Instructables usage will decrease sharply. Thank goodness it ends in November. Well, now it's your turn.

I competed in men's gymnastics for 8 years (4 in high school, 4 in college.) I was ... weird, but managed to be in a time and place(s) where I did pretty well, placing 2nd in NY State championships in HS (on parallel bars) and picking up several 2nds and a 1st on PB in college Ivy Championships (not that the Ivy league is know for spectacular performance in any sport) as well as lesser medals on highbar and pommel horse. I can still do splits, almost... I was never any good at ANY other "standard" sport, and it was quite a shock in Jr High when gymnastics got added to the Gym curriculum and I was, like, better than average at it... Um, I found having a physical "outlet" very important. I would have been a lot less happy without it. (and now, men's gymnastics is all but disappeared as a college sport, or as a school sport for either sex in grade school. Sigh.)

Here's my shameful revelation. I'm a guy, but my varsity letter is in... Girls' basketball. Yeah, you read it correctly. I got it for videotaping the games so the team could review them after. It was my JOB to watch those babes run up and down the court. Don't hate, y'all.

Very good! I was also the only guy to get an award at the girls athletic banquet, for similar services (photo, video, "manager") to the girls gymnastics team. I'm pretty proud of that particular award...

I bike and run a lot. Never as much as I would like, though.

I swam competitively for ~13 years, including college. Lots of biking, volleyball, and softball, but not at the same level of intensity as the swimming. Still do all of them, though, in more moderate amounts. Recently added aikido.

I played Varsity for my lacrosse team freshman year. Only got into 2 games though. And this year, I hope to be on Varsity again, and play more often. I am currently on my JV soccer team as a Sophomore. I am hoping that I can get a starting spot.
