I play softball 2x a week from May until the end of October.

I play BEER PONG & FLIPPY CUPS, every chance i get!  

I used to play Volleyball, mostly sand, from May - Sept and then gym VB from Nov-Jan, but, haven't done that in 10 yrs.

I like to go bowling, but, don't have too many friends that do so.

I play basketball twice a week and ice hockey and bowling once a week through the fall and winter. In the summer I play softball and try to get out on the golf course a few times.

#9 | 962 days ago

Basketball leagues - year round.
Flag football - fall/spring - usually just one session per year.  My knee can't take the turf too much.
Softball from May-August.
Skiing - at least 9-10 times every winter.
Street hockey - used to play in a league...just pickup games now.
Croquet - Very underrated game IMO.
Baseball - pickup games, homerun derby, etc.
Water sports - skiing, wake boarding, wave running, etc.
Weights/cardio - 3-4 times per week.
Usually go canoeing, hiking, etc a few times a year as well. 
#10 | 962 days ago

 Softball. I didn't play this year - work and a bad shoulder, but I'm looking to get back into it again in the spring.

dancing - i used to do a lot of salsa, but lately it's been more of just backing dat ass up
running - don't do it regularly anymore, which is a shame cause i love it
surfing - the galveston variety. more like just standing on a longboard and waiting for the tide to take you in
nascar - in houston you need to know the basic maneuvers at best
drunken olympics - pretty much a free-for-all of american gladiator type tom-foolery
swimming - involves drinking girly malt beverages and sitting under the waterfall

The only other recreational sport besides the horizontal mambo is bowling.We will load up the family truckster and go bowling every couple  of months. I usually get smoked the first couple of games and then make it respectable the last couple. The boy gets the biggest kick out of it, he better enjoy for now because the tables will turn as he gets oldeer. I used to love running and  playing basketball but my knees kill me now and if I were to get on the court again it would have to be like "Set shot" Bufford in The Fish that Saved Pittsburgh.

Golf -  Even though after years of playing i still suck a** i can not seem to quit the game , maybe because its another avenue to gamble with or the fact that there is always that chance of that one magical shot "whole in one" maybe happening so you can brag about it for years that keeps some coming back.

Fishing - Its second nature down here to hunt and fish and although i gave up hunting years ago i am still an avid fisherman. Plus i am a seafood lover and doesn't get any fresher then catching it yourself.

Softball - I actually didn't play this past season, for a variety of reasons (most having to do with sheer laziness and overly flirty lesbians), but I've been itching to get back into a league.  I've already e-mailed a few townships in my area to try to get on a team ... you know, 5 months from now, when it starts up again.  

Dancing - I've danced practically since I could walk.  I used to be in dance troops and even helped teach some classes, but I haven't really had much time for all that in recent years.

Bowling - Ha, well, see, I used to be really good (yes, I was the huge nerd that actually participated in statewide bowling tournaments when I was a kid ... placed 2nd, too  ).  Now?  I hate it.  I walk up, drop the ball, and walk away.  I rely on others to tell me how many pins I didn't hit each frame.

(I just noticed JD said water sports.    Now I'm distractedly giggling and this post is over.)

Hockey - Normally 2-3 times per week with my league teams and tournament team.  This winter only doing 1 league due to some minor cartilage tears I'm trying to let heal

Baseball - Play in an 18 and over league (yes regular baseball with a real baseball and baseball rules) we have uniforms and everything that runs every Sunday from the end of March through September

I try to play golf whenever I can.. I got down to a 9 handicap at one point, but I don't play enough to get better these days

Used to play grass and sand volleyball on wednesday nights after work in the spring, summer and fall until all my teammates decided to start families.. Ugh

And then informally, any activity in which you can still drink beer, get hurt, and/or wager on
#19 | 962 days ago

I don't play any sports anymore.  My knees are wasted. 

Midget tossing may be legal again here in FL (part of the get back to work program) and I think I could chuck em pretty far.

Funny thing, I wear contacts that give me 20/15 vision. Glasses are a problem, especially inside those hockey-style masks. On numerous occasions, I've called time from behind the plate because I've seen the pitcher's or the runner at 2nd's shoe is untied. It freaks the $#!+ out of the coaches in the dugout and they never question me on a call!

My 10 yr-old daughter is in a youth bowling league, and we'll go as a family once in awhile. Even the little one will get involved. Sometimes we'll go roller-skating and ice skating in the winter, and in the summer is all baseball.

- Inline Hockey - not organized, but there's a rink downtown open to the public that we try to enjoy when we have the chance.
- Does snorkeling count? We do that a lot...as well as swimming. I'm hoping to move somewhere I can learn to surf next. Waves aren't big enough here and they were too cold where I used to live.
- Belly Dancing - though I do enjoy clubbing occasionally too
- Unorganized flag football. Usually we can't get enough people together for an actual game, so I throw and kick and run the ball with my family and we laugh like idiots
- I also love badminton, volleyball, etc. but unfortunately don't have a net of my own. Hmm...that might be a great idea for our next "fun" purchase.

Do video games like Wii Fit, Wii Active, NFL Training Camp, Zumba, and now Kinect Dance Central, etc. count?

 Use to participate in indoor soccer, basketball and softball before a dreaded knee injury ended those days.  Now, my sports playing consists of bowling 2-3 nights a week in leagues and once or twice a month in tournaments

Most of the time, I like Jumping to Conclusions, riding on peoples' a$$e$, and stretching out by putting a Cowboy boot up a deserving butt.  The I like to relax by taking a bunch of suckers golfing, and taking their money while I talk $h*t non-stop.  Then, of course, I do two or three annual excursions into the woods where I sneak up on defenseless critters and smoke them f**kers with a high powered rifle.

There are a number of things I used to do.  I used to surf.  Was involved in age group competitive swimming.  And played water polo. 

Now days I'm pretty much limited to golf and even then it's not as often as I would like.  But I'm still walking the course when I do!
