    Let's hear them, members and moderators.
    I play competitive darts.
    Now I know it's a stretch to call dart throwing a sport.
    But is is a very exacting sport.
    And demands a real commitment.
    I hate some of the dart teams at the lodge I frequent. Filled with self-important asses.
    Last time I played there, my team scored second place out of 16 teams - mostly because of me.
    I've been feeling the itch to show my face again - out for dart blood this weekend.

    I used to play darts, but I wouldn't call it a sport.

    At 42, I no longer engage in any acticity that could be considered a sport.

    There is nothing at all about my make-up, physical and/or mental, that would make good at any sports whatsoever. That is why I am such a good sports fan.

    Softball, but it's now been since pre-Peace Corps that I've been on an organized team. There was a league in Rabat, but I was eight hours away.

    I played serious darts for about 15 years. Probably not a sport since I usually got better about halfway through the second beer.
    But it was damn fun and very competitive in L.A. All the British guys came over for a month during the summer for three big tournaments. They showed up at our bars and it was challenging to try to beat them. I played against -- but never beat -- a lot of their big shots, but I was definitely in the game and was never embarrassed.
    Best time was a Friday night shoot at a bar the night before the L.A. Open. It was a blind-draw doubles tournament, meaning you entered by yourself and they pulled names out of a hat to form doubles teams. I drew the Swedish national champion. We won about 7 matches in a single-elimination event, got to the quarterfinals when the Swedish hot-shot missed the double-out after I set him up.

    It's been a while since I played basketball, but I'd like to put a half-court in at our house.

    I haven't played softball since my 20s.

    I bowled in my 20s, but that's not a sport.

    I was involved in a drunk fight club about 10 years ago.

    I'm an avid poker player, but that's not a sport.

    I try to golf as much as possible, which isn't nearly enough as I'd like.

    I played flag football two weeks ago in my fraternity's annual Active vs. Alumni game (full contact on the line). Played in a regular flag league a ways back and would like to do it again.

    Really wanna get back into softball, but alas, I'm lazy.

    I don't really have much time to play sports anymore, too busy covering them, although I do like to golf when I get the chance, I'm just horseshit at it though.

    Also a former dart player here ... just never found an outlet in town to play steel tip like I did when I lived out west. Used to play in a ton of tournaments, blind draws, etc., along with being on a team in a league in town. Ton of fun. I've played in a few tournaments in NoVa, but probably haven't played competitively in four or five years now.

    You're right. It gets real intense. Real serious. And there's a fine line with the beer ... some relaxes you, too much and you're erratic.
