I bicycle but it's not on the list and it's not really a sport since it is my everyday transportation.

Never look at the conductor. You just encourage them.

Have you noticed, some folk never stick around to help tidy up after practice?

Smallbore target rifle shooting and golf.  Much better at the formar than the latter.

I've tried my hand at several and failed miserably at each.

I wasn't a bad swimmer in my day -- earned a Lifesaver card.  Not competitive, though.

I was Manager of the Baseball Team in High School.  Had the strangest experience when my High School sent out a fundraising letter with my picture (along with the rest of the 1965 Baseball Team) on it.

I ran track during my freshman year of high school-I was downright awful. At the very least, though, I wasn't the absolute slowest on the team.

I also answered basketball, American football, and table tennis, none of which I play in any official sense. But I do enjoy playing all of them with friends, even if I am not very good at it.

Oh, well. At least I have low brass playing to claim as my own.

I swam in HS, and I'm a swim dad (my son is in the waning months of a collegiate swimming career), so I'll pick swimming.

(I also lift weights, 12 - 22 oz at a time........  :/.  Not sure that's what you had in mind.......

My main sport is a odd one... long distance running...

A marathon is 26.2 miles(42.2 k). And usually... people race them on flat and go as fast as they can. It's 3-4 hours of torment.

In comparison... I often run 50k - 100 miles, through as rugged of terrain and mountains as I can find, drinking beer and eating cheeseburgers along the way.

I do marathons too, but take them as a nice run to go see a town/city or pretty spot.

There's a 50states50marathons club... I kinda do my own version of ultra or marathon in each state.

Other sports: swimming, biking, hiking, hunting...

Haven't played much of anything since my last back surgery. Before that I did the evolution from baseball in college to softball in the adult world, and won several medals in racquetball at the Firefighter Olympics here in Florida over the years.
