    Sorry, but a jock down here in Oz is an undergarment, underpants. I do play with my marbles in springtime, sometimes.

    When someone describes themselves as a "jock," I don't automatically assume they participate in a sport. Jock/Athletic go hand in hand.

    I'm a pro at underwater basket weaving. I even have a Girl Scout's Badge in it!

    Not a sport...NASCAR. Sorry. I just don't see how driving round and round a track makes it a sport. icon_neutral.gif

    well i'm not all that jockish playing sports. I used to Row. But I do bow hunt and I'm proficient in pistols, rifles, and shotguns. And I'm good when it comes to dodging mortars and the three-second rush.

    Does that count?

    Ouch Caslon, LOL. I train for tri's and help other who would not otherwise push themselves set goals for 5K's through marathons. Being a 'RealJock' is more than playing sports. It is a mentality and has an element of community too.

    I don't look like the super Jock I might like to be, but the element of realism lends itself to coaching/pulling/dragging others off the couch sometimes.

    It's for aesthetics, not athletics (unless riding counts). I just want my clothes to fit me a certain way... icon_wink.gif

    I lift weights six days a week.
    I ride my bike to the gym and back five out of those six days a week.
    I run six days a week, race about once a month, and almost always bring home at least an age group medal.
    I used to play beach volleyball every weekend, but retired about ten years ago after I'd succeeded in destroying my shoulder.
    To rehab my shoulder, I paddle a mile on my surfboard once or twice a week.
    I ride waves about once a week.

    I'm a one-trick pony. I play and officiate (American) Football.

    If I could skate, I suppose I might play hockey, too... (sniff; why doesn't anyone want to play floor hockey anymore?).

    And why do so few gay bars have foosball tables? (Does that count?).

    I am hoping to get gay volleyball back in the area, maybe also start a soccer team for the Gay Games in 2010. But for me that's more recreational than serious.

    After just reading the one above me here (Riptjock) I feel like a wus! Actually I can't match that but I do:

    Lift 4 times a week
    Swim 1000 yards every other night
    Cardio every other day
    Run every morning (only a few miles)
    Game of tennis a couple of games a week
    Ride my bike a few miles a week
    Game of golf a few times a month
    I just started a tough new Yoga class - every week.

    In CA I used to surf (Ft. Point under the G.G. Bridge) also 4-mile beach, Lighthouse, Steamer Lane in Santa Cruz. No beaches here in AZ though!

    I used to run the hills behind Stanford all the time as a student & for years afterward - and ran the Bay to Breakers several years.

    I better get with it if I want to look like Riptjock!

    I surf:
    The web.

    No kidding, um up until last year I was a regular jock, not so much anymore.

    I ran a lot more, and always played most every sport with my friends like every single day, and played basketball in high school. I did play intramural football for a while when I first started college. But growing up most of the time I did a lot of fighting.

    My Brother in law and all his brothers were boxers, i've known them since I was born and so I grew up around them, and my brother became a boxer too, and so it was natural for me to get involved. Then my brother got married and then he and his wife became cage fighters. I got interested in that as well, but nothing ever came of it, I just enjoyed the practices there were so hard, but fun. Fighting was something I caught on to well.

    I never did any major fights, but mostly spar like competitions, till I got completely occupied by school then work.
