Sports?

Sooo, I want to know if any of the angbandians play some sport

You know, it's good to exercise sometimes ~~

I used to play a lot of squash, but got too out of shape for it (you get fit to play squash, not the other way round). Before that I did a lot of rowing.

So that's a no, really. I'm just about to take up cycling, if that counts. Getting a decent road bike for my 40th birthday, and planning on cycling to work once I can manage 13 miles each way.

Mostly just walking on trails these days -- hill climbing, basically. I should get more exercise than I do.

Does cricket count as sport (slow left-arm cutters, over-optimistic No. 11 batting)? I had to wind up playing football (erm, 'Soccer') a couple of years back after chronically mashing my toes...

Ultimate frisbee a couple times a week. And I try to swim once or twice a week as well.

I play Floorball.

It's a fun team sport, regardless of you physical shape.

I play competitive soccer three times a week; I injured my heel on Monday so I'm grounded for a couple weeks and will be ramping up my FAAngband game a bit. :-\

Chasing my kid around should give me about as much exercise as most sports.
