i think i did this thread wrong

No, it's just that most of the forum never did anything significant in sports. I played high school football, but is it even worth mentioning?

As you are mentioning it...

Well, as OP wanted cricket....here's my 2nd favourite sporting moment.

 

I'm pretty garbage at cricket, like most Englishmen.  Can't bat, can't bowl (pitch), but I was good at catching, so occasionally played as a wicket-keeper (backstop to you foreigners).  Anyway, we had an internal works tournament with 4 teams in it.  Basically one guy in another department was a very good and keen cricketer and organised it so he would win.  We drew their team in the SF's.  They turrned up with loads of supporters, all in pristine white gear, bought a load of food and drink to celebrate when they won.  However, we had a bit of a secret weapon.  One of our guys was a pretty decent bowler (pitcher), and took quite a few wickets (strikes), and kept them to a reasonable total.  I got a couple of decent catches and a stumping (google it).

 

Anyway, then it's our turn to bat.  We're cruising along nicely (I was umpiring at this point....it's tradition), when suddenly we lose 3 quick wickets.  Someone runs on and tells me i need to pad up because I'm in next.  Because there was a wimmen in our team, i was batting number 10 (out of 11).  We lose another wicket.  We need 3 to win, with 1.2 overs to go.  I'm out there with my boss, who's a very good player.  First ball hits me perilously close to me knackers, bounces off and we sprint one.  Job done.  My boss is on strike, he'll hit the winning runs no problem.  Next ball takes his wickets out of the ground.  Smh.  In comes our number 11, a wimmens who is there purely to make up the numbers.  I'm on strike for the new over.  It's all down to me and their best bowler and captain is bowling  the final over.  First two balls whizz past the outside of my bat. I don't even smell them.  The opposition smell blood.  They all close in around the bat.  There's a lot of sledging (trolling).  Bowler starts his run up for the next ball.  I think sod this.  As he steams in I advance two steps down the pitch.  Pretty sure I had my eyes closed but i hit the ball nicely out of the middle.  It loops over the close fielder's head.  I set off like a startled rabbit.  "Run, Lou!" I shout as the dozy mare the other end stands there watching it.  We run one.  The fielder still hasn't got to the ball.  "Runnnnnnnnn!" I yell as i turn back for the second.  The balls coming back to my end (base), I'm two yards away, the balls in the air.  I dive in.  "Safe" doesn't shout the umpire because it's not baseball, but if it was, he would have done.  We win by one wicket.  The wicket-keeper who can't bat and the token lolwimmens are the heroes of the hour.  The opposition reluctantly share their celebratory banquet with us.

my favorite sports memory was reading bubba sparks' story in this thread about his epic cricket victory. although i suspect he may have cheated a little bit.

Of course you are going to last all night to that because it is not remotely exciting or arousing...  I feel sorry for your marathon-ed flaccid weinie.

This thread should not die prematurely.

 

I want to hear more tales of glory!  And of woe....

 

Speaking of which, my very worst moment in sports was probably playing 5-a-side football.  There was this game I used to play in every week on a concrete pitch, so generally you had to take things a bit easier.  Anyway, me and my best mate used to play 2 or 3 times in 5-a-side and it had been gradually heating up; I was a bit better than him, and it used to wind him up (he was "fat lad" in my previous footballing tale of glory!).  So I've gone past him a couple of times, scored a few goals and he's getting more and more wound up.  Then he gets his moment. He's through on goal, about to shoot....and I've come hurtling back to tackle him like a man possessed.  Just as he's about to shoot, i nick the ball off him.  Instead of kicking the ball, he kicks my foot full force.  It spins me round, i fall over backwards at high speed....i put my arm out to brace myself and see it bend in a very strange way in a very strange place.

 

Only time I've broken a bone in my life.  So stupid to get so physical when playing on concrete, but boys will be boys....a mate of mine said it was like watching rutting stags.  Spent the night in a&e, but managed to make it to work the next day and have had no ill effects.  Still play football with my mate from time to time and like to remind him of his clumsy wrist-breaking moment whenever I can.

After boot camp, many of us went to Pensacola for schooling.  We had a volley ball tournament.  I was probably the shortest male on the team lol.  After the first two days of the tournament, one of the girls took me out and purposely got me drunk and **** me.

Damn! That's brutal. It's so easy to say "we will take it easy" but when that competitive drive kicks in, people can't control themselves. Did it hurt like crazy or go all numb and void of feeling. I've never broken a bone before obviously, knock on wood.

I totally forgot about a classic amazing sports performance and disastrous performance all rolled into one.

 

I was playing Bantam hockey which would be like grade 8/9 age. I only played the most basic league cause we couldn't really afford to play A-AAA as they travel a ton. I was definitely good enough at the time to play AAA so I was dominating the house league. At one point I had 4 shutouts in 5 games, it was great.

 

Anyway, we play in this tournament and we are in the semi final, the game ends up going to a shootout and I end up stopping all 3 shooters, everyone goes nuts, we win the game, I get a game mvp award, all is well.

 

Then of course, the next game, the finals. We are in a dressing room and some **** says "I hope this game goes into a shootout too". And of course, it fookin did. This time I get owned, allowing all 3 shooters to score and lose in spectacular fashion lol. Fuk that kid lol

Yeah, I have a long and not so glorious history of getting overly competitive on the football field.

It was pretty painful; although it was a clean break my arm was kinda twisted at first. A few shots of morphine and I was happy as Larry though.

I never played on any high school sports teams until randomly I decided to join the wrestling team during my senior year. I almost quit mid way through the season because I wanted to find a part time job but my coach convinced me to stay and gave me a job shoeing horses with him so I could make extra money ( hardest damn thing I've done in my life). I ended up getting 3rd place at our year-end regional tournament which qualified me to go to the state championship where I got my **** WHOOPED and eliminated in the first round.

I wasn't a wrestler in high school...but it was a large part of my mma training. As I lied there thinking about what position I was in and what options may be available to me, I was easily submitted. Dammit. My PT, who was a wrestler in high school and college, just kept shaking his head.

Oh well...

If I can speak of a greatest sports moment...see above...my PT was a very good wrestler. He and I would go at it every once and a while and one day I locked both his hands up on either side of my body. He tried in vain to get loose but couldn't, even to the point of getting angry. Once the clock ran out and I let him go...he reluctantly admitted, 'you're as strong as a **** ox'.

It's not much but I took that as a little victory for me.

I was average at everything.  No real sports where i excelled but I could do the basics well on most.  I learned at an early age that consistency is a pretty good thing to have

I call it swearing practice - not golf.

I was average at everything.  No real sports where i excelled but I could do the basics well on most.  I learned at an early age that consistency is a pretty good thing to have

Perfect example for this was cricket.  There were at least 4 bowlers quicker than me in one of my teams but they would spray the ball everywhere.  I'd be consitantly bowling the ball in places that would just stifle opposition scoring and then they'd do something stupid and get out

One thing though is I used to love bowling to lefties.  I could swing and seam it big time bowling to lefties but not so much righties.  Nothing better than sending one down looking like it's missing off by 2 feet just for it to swing back in, seam in even further and then send the off stump flying while they shoulder arms, lol

Lol, nice.  Sounds like the 2005 ashes at Trent Bridge.

Actually i probably shouldn't mention the ashes right now.

I first got exposed when they opened one in Vegas behind MGM Grand.  Only months later, they announced that Huntsville would be one of their next openings.  Finishing touches are being done now.  They should be open for New Year's Eve...

 

woo hoo!
