Most people assume that nerds are bad at sport. Are you? If you are not, what sports do you not entirely suck at?
I'm not bad at sport so much as I'm not good at sport, and haven't really played it since my youth. I think some nerds can be sports nerds specifically, though.
I run. Running is pretty easy to be good at because you will get injured if you don't run properly, so you adjust your body so you're not getting hurt/look silly and bam, you're relatively good at running.
Other than that, unless you count darts, I am pretty unathletic. I just seriously lack coordination and don't do things properly.
I'm pretty athletic too, but I don't do any team/varsity sports or anything. I'm into martial arts; I've been doing Taekwondo since 4th grade and I'm a second degree black belt now. If school sports weren't so expensive I would join track next year just so that I could do pole vaulting, but I don't think it's going to happen.
I was used to swim, I was pretty good at it and competed at nationals pretty much every year between the ages of 10 and 19. I think its less of a case of nerds being bad at sports and more that not many nerds enjoy many sports, I mean whats the point of getting good at something you don't enjoy.
I agree. I think also there's the social aspect. Social interactions are VERY different in sports. It took me a very long time to become comfortable with that kind of social interactions because I didn't the social aspect of sports at first.
I suck at 80% of the sports in the world, but I pride myself at being good at badminton. I can play for hours to end. I swim, too, although not often. I can do the 4 styles.
Other sports? I'm generally bad at aiming and judging my distances. Bad at running, too.
I was pretty good at football (The American Kind) and was okay at baseball. I mean I started as center (My job is basically not to move) on our undefeated freshmen team at my high school, and I was really good at playing 1st base in baseball, but I never made any varsity team because I couldn't hit for crap. Basically, the sports where the least moving involved, I was really good at it.
im very bad at sports. all sports. i have never done any kind of sport which i was actually good at. and i've tried quite a few, trust me. im not athletic at all. im not upset by this, but its just not something i can do.
I'm a terrible runner, like awful. Although, I'm pretty decent at volleyball and I was captain of Girls JV Basketball team. So I do have some athletic ability. :)
Ya I'm pretty much horrible at sports, however I am pretty strong because I am a competitive dancer. So while I may be afraid of the ball, I can do more push-ups than most of the guys in my gym class because of dance.
