Love Volleyball, I captained a team for a friendly whilst I was in Kenya, played in front of a crowd of 300 odd people. We got beaten fairly soundly, but was good fun.


That would sound like great fun, but I've honestly had enough of my share of public whippings...

American Football!!! (I agree it should not be called "football".) From NFL Sunday Ticket to Red Zone Channel to fantasy football to Madden NFL video games, I just can't get enough NFL.

I couldn't think of anything else I want it to be called. I certainly don't want it to be called "soccer".

Well Football isn't Soccer, it's FIFA, not FISA or SIFA and an international renowned sport!!

Before I was forced into retirement, my favourite sport was swimming because I was very talented at it. After that, it was Martial Arts, after that it was Basketball, but now it's Snooker. That is the hardest sport to play in my opinion; it's definitely a game where you are either good at or you're not.

What stroke did you specialize in? I'm a breaststroker...

I didn't have a speciality. I done frontcrawl, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. Butterfly was the one I done most of the time in freestyle.

The correct term is Gridiron Football. I'd be happy with "gridiron". The National Gridiron League. How about trench war? Football is such a terrible term for what the game really is. A foot comes into contact with the ball for mere seconds during an entire game.
