    I Don't Like The Nature Of Competition As It Is

    I, for one, don't like sports. I suck at them so I am never welcomed to participate.  I do like athletic activities for recreation and just for fun because no one takes it seriously.I am not very in tune with my physical body so I can't make it move the way I want it to most...

    I enjoy doing sports a lot their fun

    but I really suck at it and once we're in teams and I'm the one missing the ball or something I feels super bad and when I look at there faces they look like they look disappointed, it makes me sad that I couldn't do anything for them.

    You know the kid who, when they FINALLY get the ball, kicks it into the other team's goal? That's me! =D

    Re:Suck At Sports

    I can't really hit a baseball and I can't play football. I think I can play a litte soccer. I sucked at playing spots.

    Not So Sporty Spice

    I have NO coordination. So playing sports is out of the question. I've tried to watch sports, and I don't even know what's going on. I get bored.

    I Suck At Sports

    I suck at sports. Yes. That's why I'm here. And I'm gonna tell you my story. I am in a middle school here in the US. I just came here from the Philippines last year, so I didn't know ANYTHING. I didn't know Six Flags, I didn't know who Teddy Roosevelt was, I didn't know how to...

    Why is the question never "Do you play sports?

    " and always "What sport do you play?"

    Unfortunately I also love sports!

    I don't seem to get any better no matter how hard I try. Life is unfair.

    Simply

    I have no eye hand coordinations, I daydream, I have no spacial awareness and I am clumsey.  This is why my fitness regimes do not revolve around me having to catch something or fling myself across a pitch to kick something but involve machines, that i can trust :-)
