    Your favorite sport or other activity

    Post by Coolname007 on Fri Sep 11, 2009 12:09 pm

    Hey, so what's your favorite sport (that you either like to watch, or play)? guitar I like American football, and what is known as soccer in our country. I'm also of course interested in (serious) martial arts, which can't be classified as sports.

    I also enjoy playing the guitar (I have a blue Ibanez electric), playing on the computer, and doing other cool stuff. Anyone want to talk about whatever you like to do?

    Post about it in here!

    I check up on the local MLB team (D-Backs) scores, don't typically end great for us. I also used to play a sport known as Goalball. Semi-professional sport (you won't see it on TV but they've got a national competition and the winner goes to the para olympics for their country every four years) that allows individuals with disabilities to play just as well as anyone.

    Cool. Goalball, eh? I didn't even know what that was, I had to Google it. Brows

    Pretty neat that they have a sport for blind people, though. I bet most blind people have good hearing, and so they can probably hear the ball pretty well, and judge its position with relative accuracy, since it has embedded bells in it. (Read the info on Wikipedia)

    Yeah its pretty interesting. Got as far as playing a game against a goalball team from Mexico and lost horribly lol, so much for me making it to nationals. And its actually pretty painful having to block a goalball going 40 MPH or so when whizzed off into your direction by a veteran, with it only taking at most a second to reach you you have very little time to interpret which way to dive to block it. The pros whiz the ball of so fast sometimes you can't hardly even hear the bells in it. The games been around since WWII orginally to give injured soliders something they could play despite their disabilities. Everyone can play it though thanks to the blindfold factor. Players use nothing more than tape and rope on the court to navigate themselves into the right position.

    Neat. That's pretty cool that you got to play against Mexico. I guess their players were pretty good, huh? So what's the ball like? Is it pretty hard? If so, then yeah, I can see why that would hurt if it hit you. affraid

    Its like a basketball (slightly bigger) with bells. Personally I think its a little harder than a basketball though. Its definetly heavier.

    Cool. WaBAAM! *see stars* Yea, that would hurt...

    Is it made of the same material as a basketball, though?
