    Things you are proud of.....

    What things that you own are you proud of? It can be materialistic, or emotional.

    I'll start things off with my trophies that I have won over the years playing football









    What are you proud of?

    They are all for playing football

    I havent played professionally. Although I did figure in Nottingham Forest's youth team for a few matches and also Nottingham City Boys football team at around the age of 15.

    However, none of those trophies are from either of said teams. They were from 2 different football teams (I used to play Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning )! And also for my school (but they were crap )

    The majority of those trophies were won in 2 seasons. Where my Saturday team won both the league + two cups 2 seasons in a row!

    I then left them as the manager didnt like me, and I didnt particularly like him

    I then lost interest in playing football and never touched a ball in 2 years. I then got back into it during college and started a 5-a-side team at my local sports centre. We won the league there and got a nice trophy and a crate of beer to share between us (alcohol is always a bonus )

    Cool I used to play footie sunday mornings but never really wont anything cause our team was crap. We were pretty good footballers, just everyone else was better

    I play down the park with friends since and prefer it cause i wasnt old enough (nor developed enough physically) to play properly. Also, im not fussed with the competition much.

    Id love to get into it at uni though, but noone i know plays there Bout the only thing i can do since my fingers have perminant tendonitis so i cant do rock climbing anymore
    I dont like sig pics so i turn off sigs Which doesnt help when i dont know what ive written here! DOH!

    Show off...

    Me? I don't have much sporting achievements to talk about, but try this one...

    I've fully recovered from a broken left femur (thigh bone), hurt while playing rugby a few years ago. It turned out that I was carrying a stress fracture for weeks which I didn't know. Due to the stresses of doing turns and changes of speed during the 1st half, it finally gave way early in the 2nd half. I was taken to hospital (obviously) and there were what followed: 4 hours of operation which the consultant inserted a metal bar inside the bone itself with "screws" attaching the top and bottom of the bar to the bone. After 3 days in hospital, I was released and left to fend for myself. I was on crutches for nearly 5 months; over 50 hours of physiotheropy and hydrotheropy - my left leg has to, effectly, learn how to walk again.

    However, I'm fine now. Ok, I'm nowhere near as fast as I once was (I was a winger and did 100m in 11sec), I played occasionally until a couple of years ago. The metal bar is still inside my bone; it will probably stay there for the rest of my life, unless it becomes a threat to my health.

    19 years of rugby union and American football has left me with a broken leg, a broken bone in my foot (someone knee landed on the palm of my foot on a bone-dry pitch) and a separated shoulder (I was a wing forward before)... But hey, I enjoyed every single one of those minutes it spent training and playing these sports.

    I'm proud of that.

    Whow cool! (the silver not the op wait). I did Judo as a kid but gave up cause i got to like "orange 3" when i was 11 and was only about 4'5" and small built going up against 13-14 year old, much bigger built kids of similar grade That truely sucked and since i have an inferiority complex about fighting people , wish id kept it up though.
    I dont like sig pics so i turn off sigs Which doesnt help when i dont know what ive written here! DOH!

    I was 12 when I started, and in the group that I trained with (Tonge Judo Club), all the kids quit when they were 16. So I was the only one to go into the adult class. Ended up training against the kind of guy that you can just tell would absolutely maul you in a dark alley. It was all good fun though, managed to hold my own, and I think it made me a better fighter.

    Before I did judo/sambo, I trained Kempo from quite an early age. Bit of a mix of kickboxing and karate. Good fun, I learnt alot from that, but I do regret stopping when I started highschool
