Re: World cup?


I'm not following, but I've heard that a lot of Americans are watching. That's weird because the games are hidden away on the secondary sports channels, and our team has made a poor outing. Seriously, I've seen NO promotion for the World Cup. SO next year, the BIG networks might pick-up coverage. Then I'll have no other choice....

But I did see the Grand Prix of Britain on CBS, which was shocking because there were no stock cars or rappers about.

Re: World cup?


Ok, the world cup is at an [sign in to see URL]'s been a good tournament and has although I never thought I'd say this, it's rekindled my passion for a sport which I once loved so much and was good at too. However, I say this at the end of every world cup. Once the normal season kicks off I couldn't really give two sh1ts. emoticon I prefer other sports to football these days mainly cycling and running, lone sports. The whole expierience of football and playing it as a kid left me jarred. I was okay at and if pushed by parents as a youngster could have had a career in the local leagues I'm sure, although once they got divorced I never had any money to pay for tuition and gradually lost interest. No regrets though, our lives are driven by nature's unbreakable laws so at the end of the day I say to myself to just forget about things like these questions that crop up in my mind sometimes, those 'What ifs' we all get.
 
ONE Thing I have learnt during the world cup-
England will always get knocked out due to the idiocy of a player called 'Rooney'.

Re: World cup?


I'll admit that, though I didn't see any World Cup this year, I could've watched anytime. I don't knock the sport, mind you. At least, the players are real athletes. American football, on the other hand, is sort of like Sumo wrestling in that many players train for physical size. I have a cousin that is training with the same goal, but he's not a football player. He's a factory worker, and not an athlete. Every other year or so, I watch post-season American football leading to the Superbowl. Then I don't have to memorize a large pile of team rosters or statistics. I only have to be familiar with a few teams. THEN IT'S ENJOYABLE. But to try to follow that sport(also basketball and baseball) throughout the season demands that it's no longer an interest or hobby-it must be a freakin' lifestyle. To devote the necessary time to following the sport would be idiotic unless, of course, I were getting paid for my time.

Might Rooney may be on board to boost the confidence of his teammates.

Baseball was once my sport, but...

Those "what if's" are troublesome, aren't they?

Anyways, seriously, if you don't exercise, you need to, everyone does. And if you don't and then do because I say you should, you should thank me. Seriously, the feeling you can get from a half an hours worth of exercise is better than any drug.
I just need to kick my 5-year fag* habit and I'll be at my peak fitness level sometime soon. The body, as with the mind needs nourishment.

Do you exercise much then, Mike?

Re: World cup?


Yeah, Americans have been clued-in about British fag habits. I have a cigarette habit. One thing I've noticed in the past(regardless of medical facts), cigarettes will hinder the results of exercise.

Truthfully, I don't get much exercise, but I understand that it can be quite important. Usually I get enough physical activity out of various duties around the house and yard.

As it relates to baseball, well, it's a team sport and I had no team.

[sign in to see URL] housework exercise then?

Yes, very true about the fags. When I first started a routine of regular daily exercise it was very, very hard because I was breathless and a little out of shape. After a while, even as a smoker, my stamina while doing the exercised improved and I did it blissfully and continued in doing so for about five months. Then of course, I had a break, but this break turned from a few days into about a month. Thankfully, I regained the routine but cut back how many days a week I was doing the exercise, because exercise and this may sound weird is very addictive when you do it everyday of the week.
Seriously, I really, really wanna quit smoking. This is something I plan to do soon. I wonder if you fancy trying to quit at the same time as me and we can then relay our thoughts in a quit smoking thread or something. This is worthy of a try, it is afterall and disgusting habit. And smoking in the UK is becoming a no-no with all these damn smoking laws in bars and pubs. Smoking is the new heroin. People look down on you if they see you smoking. Honestly, I've been smoking for too, too long and need, and want to quit. So, do you fancy have a go at quiting at the same time as me in the coming months. Say we set a date and that'll be when we start- depending whether your up to it or not.

I am the housework Chuck Norris, but alas I can't seem to find a way to parlay this into a series of bad films.

smoking=addictive

exercise=obsessive

Daily exercise... I guess it's not much of a problem if the exercise is varied enough. Like Yoga followed by kickboxing followed by biking.

On the other matter, I agree with you; death to fags. Need to quit. In your exercise, this will help much more than in lung capacity. Among other things, you'll recuperate faster(take this from personal experience). I once exercised daily(weight training) and kept a very strict [sign in to see URL] then I started smoking. Smoking killed that for me. Nagging muscle pains. No energy. Strength decreased. Except for smoking, I was the picture of health for a lad of my years. This was confirmed by medical professionals.

If or when I quit, I'd like to try an array of aerobic exercises, as anything else would likely require too much time or resources.
