I'm a good boy I am. But I do like the indoor sports, not football. And a sporty woman is the best of all.

Any sporty ladies on here want to join me? He he he.

Those do count! see? there is hope ;) , altough I was rather thinking about something you could practice yourself (and save any comment on that Peter, please ;).  What about starting from something simple, don't know...some jogging in the countryside?? ;) .    We sometimes tend to mix up the sport itself with all that world turning around it, like money, fanatism etc., but fortunately that's not the same thing at all.

Football is English, they play with a round ball, rugby is the same but with an oval ball and soccer is........not sure LOL I think its the american version of our football/rugby combined played with an oval ball. I may be wrong, but i'm sure someone will correct me Undecided

Sorry everyone but I'm a late starter .... Rugby is played with an oval ball and is the state religion of Aotearoa-New Zealand. Rugby always used to be known as footy or football in NZ, until FIFA decided to label soccer as football ...... soccer was only for girls!

Hi Kahu:  Thanks for the information.  But I'm going to go a little off topic here for a moment.  L. who started this thread, who you quoted in your posting, is a lovely lady named Lyn Greenaway who passed away this past summer.  I read thru this thread and it brought happy memories of last year when Lyn was part of this group.  May she rest in peace.  Since today is All Souls Day, I guess it's not too inappropriate to go off topic here to remember Lyn and our other loved ones who've passed.
