I always liked playing tennis, it was the only individual sport I could stand. I'm not patient enough for golf and not dedicated enough to run track. I stopped playing after my junior year, but I parlayed my racquet-handling skills into a kick-ass record in 4 semesters of racquetball in college!

Flicker ball is this game we play some days during off-season. It has pretty much the same rules as 7 on 7 football(without pads) except you can throw the ball forward or backward from anywhere on the field as many times as you want in one play.

Interesting sounds fun. I bet an hour of that will wear you out.

Flying Tiger

Heck yeah...what sucks is that if the guy runs at you, you don't know what to do. If you leave your man and go after the guy with the ball, then he'll just throw it to the guy you left open. But if you don't leave your man, then he'll just run down the field. Pump fakes are deadly in the game.
