I think raquetball is the best sport ever
    #4295086 - 06/14/05 04:25 PM (12 years, 13 days ago)

Just played for my second time today and it's just SO entertaining. Fast paced, but not an overload for a new player. Plus it's not a team sport so I don't have to listen to people bitch at me when I fuck up.

Off-topic somewhat:

In high school we needed a code language for smoking pot. It was racquetball.

Pot=racquetballs
Dealer=referee
Smoking=a game
Where to smoke=the court

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

It is so exhausting, but fun. Me and my friend had some all-out battles in racquetball.

When I was a kid my dad would bring me out to the courts, short shorts, eye protection, and the works. I actually had a lot of fun, but I haven't played a game in probably at least 10 years.

Yeah I should probably wear eye protection. I wear my glasses (flexon) but that doesn't really mean much. Got hit in the face today too.

I don't know the rules but I've hit the ball around a bit at the local rec center. A friend of mine and I always talk about going and actually playing, it never ends up happening though.

of course its subjective... but in terms of the amount of time of practice it takes to get good, and most enjoyable to watch.... soccer, football, baseball, hockey, basketball

ive played nearly all sports, some leagues... just speaking from experience, you dont get much of an adrenaline rush playing raquetball. although it is a good cardio exercise

Oh man..soccer is so boring to watch. Football is boring to watch 90% of the time because they just run 6 yards.

Now TENNIS, that's a sweet sport to watch.

But then again it's subjective.

I'm not gonna comment on baseball.

i cant stand tennis... and the sports arent boring to watch if youve actually played them

you know how hard it is to play soccer? do you know how hard it is to play football? do you know how many practices you have to go to to learn plays? do you know how much you have to work out away from practice to get into playing shape?

Yeah yeah, they're hard to play. Doesn't make them good. People go to baseball practice every day but baseball is still highly not entertaining.

But I DO agree that things get much easier to appreciate if you play them. Like, when you pick up a guitar, you start to appreciate guitar players that much more. Or watching those guys go APE SHIT in ping pong, only to truly understand how god damn hard that is to do.

Good times.

You don't know what an adrenaline rush is until you find yourself strapped to a snowboard at 13,000' on a 35-45 degree slope. And if you're at loveland you got 5-40mph winds on top of that.

This isn't me, it's just some lucky bastard on one of my favorite slopes in Colorado.



If ya can't tell, snowboarding is one of the things I'm most passionate about. Next time any of you lovely shroomerites are in CO during the winter hit me up and we'll go hunt for some powder.

Ha, I'm not going to pretend I can understand the rush of a snowboarder at 13,000 feet on that kind of slope. That's just nuts.

Yeah I used to do a lotta skating too :smile:  Gave up my trick deck for a longboard a few years ago though.  Now I just skate for transportation.  I think 5-6 stairs was my limit, I value my ankles :wink:  I got a few friends that are sponsored amateurs and I can't even imagine having to deal with injuries as often as they do.

Oh I bet. You people standing on a board going down a hill just don't make sense to me :wink:

I like my bones and skin and I appreciate them.

:wink:

I'm (was) a computer nerd. Any sporting activity is a huge jump up for me. Only other sport I play is Disc golf. Fun, but lemme tell you, that's some adrenaline rush right there.




Sarcasm? You bet.
