01/26/2003 Archived Entry: "Super Bowl"

So today was the Super Bowl, eh? While the world is all enamored by a bunch of guys smashing into each other trying to get a ball to the other side of the field, I'm here being utterly uninterested. Sports have never been one of my favorite things. Why? I think I've mentioned it before, but I was never good at sports. Either I lacked the coordination or the natural skill. Heck, sometimes it was probably both. Even after starting martial arts at the age of 10, I came to have a decent amount of coordination and control over my body, but I suppose sports demand something other than just control. This can be demonstrated by the fact that I was quite possibly the most controlled sparrer at my kickboxing dojo, but I still sucked at sports like football, basketball, and baseball. Heck, I think the only sports I'm good at are aikido, sanshou (chinese kickboxing), running and swimming. None of them are really team-cooperation type sports. Because of my utter lack of any skill, I always kinda dreaded that period of the day called "PE." I was the stereotypical "last chosen" kid. Maybe not to the extent that you see on an overly simplistic TV program, but I was among the last. And then when we got out there to do our thing, I would quite often let my team down. So back to my point, I wasn't watching the Superbowl. I was talking to my cousin and he asked me if I wanted to join him and a few of my other cousins to watch it, but I firmly declined and he called me a geek. Of course, this cousin always calls me a geek. ^_^; It's ok though. My family's like that. Three of my cousins and I reguarily call one of my cousins a loser. XD But yes, as I was saying, I was called a geek. Not that that bothers me. The label geek has more or less lost most of the stigma attached to it throughout the years as people realized that these "geeks" were their bosses. ^_^ So yes, I'm not a traditional alpha male. I couldn't care less. Go geekhood! Down with sports! ^_^ Where the heck will sports get you in life anyway? Unless you're one of those professional players (or a better) sports won't benefit you in any way. Meh...

GO YOU!!!!! For not liking sports and being classified as a geek! *praise praise* Geeks are the best! And sports are evil in my opinion (fellow "last chosen" here ^_^;;) Luckily I only have one quarter of PE left and then I'm FREE! (Yes, I am a high school sophomore) Okay, I'll stop bothering you now. Heh heh.

Hey, leave sports alone. They're good depending on what they are and if I'm any good at them. Super Bowl won me munny. Therefore it is good. I was *one* the last people chosen, but I still like sports anywho. Particularly if they win me munny. Raiders suck. Thank you. Good night

ee... ._.;; I like sports... but yeah. *cough* I wasn't the ones always chosen last, somewhere a medium athlete? And then I got exempted from P.E. forever. Anyways, I didn't really watch the Superbowl either. was doing an essay >_< I STILL NEED TO CALL YOU! The question would go whether I'd ever get to it. And you can expect a long e-mail coming soon again.

Geekiness... teehee, my bro's about to either declare chem as a minor or double major. I... still don't like chem much. >_x

I don't like sports either and I didn't watch the superbowl 'cuz I hate football. yes, down with sports! ::thumbs down:: I'm pretty good at tennis and badminton but everything else is pretty much more difficult for me. Football makes people crazy! lol. Everybody starts yelling at each other just because this team won and this team lost. But then again...it can be a good way to make quick cash...if you're really lucky! =P
