    For example tennis; I go to watch the GOAT play and I cheer him on, as does all his fans. When he wins, no one proclaims it to be their win... No matter how hard they've cheered, they don't claim to have helped him win in any way :holmes:

    Good point no idea why but I just do anyway. I've spent quite a bit on watching the team I like and buying merchandise so guess its just a thing.

    You two should be able to answer this...

    Why, do fans of sports teams always say "We won" or "we lost" why they "we"? I understand the passion and the fact that we pay their wages but in truth, we aren't part if the team :holmes: we have a stake but we aren't really effective on the pitch :holmes: I've always struggled saying "we won" and actually mean it :beard:

    I guess it's because football is a team game the outcome of the game depends on more than 1 person. In tennis, the player is riding solo.

    @mastermind you likes nature/animals. Probably has a domestic pet, cat/dog - possibly even a hamster. They are logical and enjoy completing maths sums, especially suduko. They aspire to be intelligent but are also modest when describing your ability to others around you.

    I love the sprints so much I feel so refreshing :moon:

    Yea it's just something I have to get out of the way before I'm 25 And I just hope I don't injure myself or anything, that's really why I decided 2015 instead of the next one in 2014.. my knees have a history of messing me up bad so I have to be cautious

    Sprinting is my thing not long distance. Hoping to get back into 100m and 200m shape soon. Although I wouldn't mind just being fast over 60m since that's all i really need for American Football.

    I tore my ACL a year and a half ago so you gotta be careful with knees. Lots of things can go wrong with them

    I normally do 1k sprints, I genuinely don't like short distances :dontknow:

    That must have hurt :console: Too many things can go wrong with them, fragile *******s! :rant:

    You play AF :beard: I did not know that... Are they many places here for amateurs? :beard: Do you normally play with ribbons attached to the waist or full on?
