I wish I had played ...

    I played baseball, football and lacrosse, but man, do I wish I could have played hockey.

    Grew up in Texas, back when NHL teams were where they're supposed to be, and knew almost nothing of hockey. Even if I'd wanted to play, I'm not sure there was a rink or a team anywhere around. But after seeing hockey as an adult, I know I would have absolutely loved playing it. Now I'm old and broken down, and couldn't even join a old broken-down men's league because I can't skate for shit.

    Is there a sport that you look back and wish you'd played? Something maybe you've come to love since, something you know would have been right in your wheelhouse?

    Baseball. Absolutely baseball. I played T-ball, but was always fascinated by the fact that all the other kids in the neighborhood got to come home with cool jerseys and brag about their exploits all the time.

    My parents said they never wanted to push me into anything I didn't want to do. But dammit, who doesn't want to play baseball?!

    I love watching volleyball but am way too fat to play my 3 inch vertical probably doesn't help.

    You'd make a fine end zone pylon. Or maybe a kicking tee. :)

    would being a pornstar qualify as a sport?

    Lacrosse. I would have ruled at it. Never saw it played until after college.

    I'm with you Arnold, hockey would have been it for me.

    I got to play a lot, if not all, British sports, football, rugby, cricket, tennis, golf, lacrosse, etc. but I wish I could have played hockey growing up.

    I remember watching Gretzky's Oilers when I was very young, and using a plastic golf club and ball (you know, the ones parents give three-year-olds) and an overturned chair as a goal to shoot into.
