    Other than football

    The sport you have played the most?

    For me probably cricket.

    Rugby, way more than football.

    If darts, pool and snooker count I played all to a reasonable level. Then my eyes went! 😲

    Got square feet so never played much football. Last time was in the 90s for a Tartan Army XI against a team from Tallinn. 1-1 at half-time, we were beaten 4-1 as it was too hot for most of our team.

    Played rugby until I was 58 (a few years ago now), had my hip done a year later and recently bought myself a new pair of boots and am back playing touch rugby now. Great fun! Have also run all my life, marathons (in the 80s), half-marathons, 10Ks, hill races although now it's just to burn off beer.

    Still no 'Xs' in my t-shirt size!

    Played table tennis at work on night shifts.Never played for a club but did play in a couple of tournaments when on holidays and won one. Quite a few of the guys played for clubs in their own countries too so honing my skills when I should have been working obviously paid off.

    Used to be golf. Now it's running.

    I'm better at the latter than the former.

    I used to play a lot of tennis with my mates, either at Craiglockhart but mostly for free at Paties Road. My service was always either unstoppable or unfindable.

    Also played indoor hockey for a few years with my pal's workmates - it was mixed and was as much a social thing as anything else.

    I did play a lot of football and wasn't a bad goalie (probably because of my height) but I preferred playing inside right or on the right wing where I was mediocre at best.

    I've always been better at music.

    I was surprisingly good at Badminton.

    I played rugby from the age of 12 up to the age of 50. Hundreds of games, would have been more but for Hibs. Did gymnastics, badminton, athletics all at school. Played golf, tennis. Also used to play cricket every summer. I have excelled at being average at every sport I have tried. Although average would be an over exaggeration for my golf

    100m at school, I was pretty decent. School hockey team for a month which went well until training got changed to 3pm on Saturday.

    Hopeless at all racquet sports and golf.

    I was a great swimmer when younger. Fast as anything and at one time I'd never be out of one pool or another. Tennis was another sport I'd often play on a nice summers day. Nowadays, I'm more likely to be out on the golf course.

    Bowls, have played for 40 years since I was 13.

    I played squash regularly until my back packed in a few years ago. Have dabbled in tennis and badminton too.

    Non-competitive, I ski and climb mountains.

    Probably golf or baseball.

    Played baseball at AAA level in the British league (BBF) and played for a few years when I was stateside. I used to actually be pretty decent at golf, but moving down South (where I simply couldn't afford to play anywhere) followed by the arrival of a young family mean I'm lucky to get 3 or 4 games a year now.

    As well as the golf and running I mentioned earlier I also boxed a bit at uni. Had 7 amateur fights and won 6 of them.

    A shoulder injury picked up playing football put paid to that though.

    Out of interest do you know what sort of pathway primary school aged kids today might take if they were interested in athletics? One of my kids and a couple of pals really enjoy it and would like more than the rather cursory sessions they get at school but it's hard to find something suitable.

    On a slight tangent but does anyone actually prefer other sports to football? By that I mean watching as well as playing.

    Definitely! Apart from Hibs I couldn't care less about football. Rugby for me, real men, not screaming, overpaid, pansy, cheats.

    Edit..the more I think about it, any sport that doesn't encourage screaming, overpaid, pansy cheats is a much more enjoyable watch.

    Definitely.

    The Euros is the 1st non Hibs football I have really enjoyed in ages. Generally speaking I much prefer watching NFL, horse racing and athletics to football.

    Football fell off the top spot a long time ago for me (though I've been absolutely glued to the Euros!).

    Rugby and/or NFL probably occupy top spot.

    Pretty much sums it up for me too. I'm unquestionably more of a Hibs fan than a football fan, though like you I did enjoy the Euros. Apart from that I couldn't actually tell you when I last watched a non-Hibs match (I don't even watch Match of the Day or Sportscene these days).

    I love the Olympics (although not so up for them this year) and largely enjoy watching sports where it doesn't bother me too much who wins (ie you can appreciate the skills of the competitors more than you can when you're willing Hibs on at all costs). Andy Murray probably tops any Hibs player as my top sportsman. Also loved going to baseball matches when I've spent time in the States.

    The names Blair Stewart, Mole & Poser pop into my head with two of the three teams at that age

    In terms of sport I suppose it would have been golf till I moved to Ireland then found it too expensive & less craic (just started again last year)..The open water swimming & trail running since I moved here..All just for fun & fitness nothing taken that seriously these days
