I would like to hear, if there are any sport interested piano music lovers here? I myself love football(or soccer as they say in America), and in Europe, football is by far the biggest sport of all, and probably the greatest entertainment business, all categories. So, are there any sport lovers here? If there are, please share me your interest and tell me about your relation to the sport! smile

When I was in high school, I was a pretty good soccer goalkeeper. That pursuit, sadly, was incompatible with my continuing musical studies, so I gave it up. Goalkeepers hands get beaten up pretty badly.

I'm a big fan of the American goalkeepers in the EPL: Tim Howard, Brad Friedel and Brad Guzan. My professional sports career lives on vicariously.

I was a fan of boxing when Ali was champ.
I was a fan of tennis when Mcenroe was champ.
And a fan of football until Kurt Warner left town.

Nowadays sports has a decided lack of charisma. Boring, like soccer has always been. laugh

I taught tennis professionally during the summer for about 15 years. As a high school math teacher I taught John McEnroe pre-calculus mathematics and also coached the high school tennis team he played on. (Notice I was careful not to say I coached him because even as a freshmen he knew far, far more about tennis than I ever did.)

Is ballet a sport? smile

After today's class, I'm far more sore than I've been after any training run or bike ride.

And I got to listen to some lovely piano music while doing it. The original Sweatin' to the Oldies, the REALLY old oldies.

My son loves soccer, but here in Spain, he has no hope against the other little Spanish boys. The last time he tried to play a pickup game of soccer in the plaza with a gaggle of boys, he ended up with a bloody nose within 5 minutes. And I don't think anybody actually did anything to him malicious. I think he just basically tripped himself simply trying to keep up with whatever it is that they seem to be able to do immediately upon emergence from the womb.

Here is a sportsman famous for his elegance, and who I think is the perfect sportsman to love if you are into classical music. He is famous for his virtousity and elegance, as well as his artistic touch, which makes him almost as much of a cultural personality as he is a football/soccer player. His name is Zinedine Zidane:

I used to play all the sports (soccer, softball, basketball) when I was in elementary/middle school. After that I realized I was awful at them all, so I switched to ballet smile. I still play soccer once in a while for fun. However, I never enjoyed watching sports of any kind. My entire family is obsessed with soccer, though, so I hear about it all the time.

Hockey, baseball, and football. I watch the Tigers most every night, the Wings when they're on and on Sunday I'm basically glued to the TV for most of the day when I'm not at the piano.

As I was (and always had been, since I was a fetus in my mom's womb) hopeless at any sort of organized sports, be it soccer, cricket (for Americans, this isn't an insect wink ), badminton, tennis, table tennis, etc, etc - yep, I've tried all of them at one time or another - I eventually started hiking (=hillwalking, =tramping/bushwalking depending on which country you're in), then rock-climbing, then high-altitude mountaineering......and then found that the best way to keep fit for the mountains was by running, preferably on mountainous terrain. Which was how I ended up climbing Everest as well as running the Everest Marathon grin (as well as several London and other big city marathons).

I lost the tip of my little finger to frostbite, but otherwise, escaped unscathed from my escapades up all those little icy hills over the past two decades. Not that I'm using that as an excuse for why my octave technique is still not as good as I'd like it to be grin.

So, apart from swimming (preferably in open water) - again, not an organized sport - and adventure racing, and kayaking, that's about the only sport I do - or can do.

Franz Beebert, I have read your post, here:

I would like to hear, if there are any sport interested piano music lovers here? I myself love football(or soccer as they say in America), and in Europe, football is by far the biggest sport of all, and probably the greatest entertainment business, all categories. So, are there any sport lovers here? If there are, please share me your interest and tell me about your relation to the sport! smile

_____________________________________________

I love basketball and played it 4 times a weeks. To me, basketball is so awesome because you can play it outside, inside, co-ed, half court, full court, with or without t-shirts anytime of the year weather permitting. I had/have health issues so I switch to playing the piano because I couldn't play basketball. All you need is a hoop and a ball, so almost as cheap and owning a cheap secondhand digital piano - oh, and like basketball and piano, you can play them 24 hours a day / or night - neighbours permitting..

Additionally, in basketball and piano you have to practice running up and down the court or running up and down the scales in piano. And you have to do leaps, jumps, and scores are always an issue whether you are playing the piano or playing basketball.

Actually I'm one of those rare birds who could care less about professional sports. I enjoy watching a football, baseball or basketball game or tennis match from time to time. But that's about it. My wife, on the other hand, is a football fanatic. When University of Nebraska games are being televised or broadcast on the radio, everything comes to a halt in our house...and any practicing must be done on the digital. Fortunately, we both enjoy watching the amazing athletic prowess exhibited by professional ballet dancers. grin

I'm baffled by the popularity of most sports.

I like watching the occasional game from time to time, but the amount of time, money, and energy many people spend on sports seems ludicrous to me.

(Especially since they'll spend hundreds on pay-per-view, t-shirts, fantasy football clubs, and spend entire Sundays watching the stuff while complaining about a $45 ticket to an orchestra concert.)

I am a very casual baseball/hockey fan primarily because my husband and sons are intensely into both. I occasionally go to a game and find it relaxing but watching sports it pretty low on my list of priorities.


Best regards,

Deborah

Let me explain it to you. grin

Sports represents and encompasses many things that we're probably hard-wired for; and they serve as living demonstrations of mathematics and physics, and our constant necessity to cope with them and to try to surmount them. And in the media, sports serve as a near-unique instance of unscripted, spontaneous, unpredictable real-time stuff that we see and hear about as it unfolds. How much other stuff fills those bills?

About the "hard wired" stuff: Sports involve competition, pursuit of excellence, and physical capabilities of all sorts and their stretching to the limits. Do you not think we're hard wired for those things? I sure do. And how about if we're just watching, not playing? We experience it vicariously, plus we just find those things captivating (unless we don't, of course) grin .....because they're so key to what it is to be human and what it has meant for survival over these thousands of years. For better and worse, we're hard wired to fight, and to win. "Civilization," however, puts reins on those things -- so (I'm saying) we channel those instincts into other things, most of us anyway; some people love going to war and make careers of it, but most don't. We play sports, or we watch sports, or both. And some of us enter piano competitions. ha
And some of us just argue about stuff; that's almost the same too. grin

Many sports have obvious analogies to war. I think football (American football) is the main such one, although Stephen Jay Gould wrote (to my utter astonishment, but maybe he had a point) that the sport is a clear representation of gathering of food -- and maybe that's another subliminal basis for our being drawn to sports. I don't think so, but heck, he was smarter than I am.

Some sports involve things that probably derived directly from battle. My theory of how baseball originated -- I don't mean how the full-fledged game developed -- we sort of know that, although the exact venue gets debated; I mean the way-back basis for what eventually became the game: Something like, two tribes were fighting. One guy hurled a stone at the other tribe. A guy in the other tribe had some kind of stick or club that he had brought to the battle. He swatted at the stone, knocking it back at the other tribe, and maybe killing one of those guys. Preferably the guy who threw it. grin
It became legendary, and members of one or both tribes then began making a sport of it. Or something like that. smile

And worship of sports heroes.....Another thing we're (probably) hard wired for is, admiration and deference to a star warrior. Could our interest in sports heroes, to the point that we follow them sufficiently for them to be worth millions of dollars a year, be based strongly on our being hard wired to bestow great benefits on the best warriors? I think so. In any event I have little doubt that for the most part, the star athletes -- Ali, Chamberlain, Mantle, Brady, Jordan, even McEnroe ha .....I have little doubt that in an earlier era, they would have been among the star warriors, and would have helped their tribes to triumph over neighboring tribes and over their environments and to greatly help the survival of their fellow members.

BTW......golf, I can't explain at all. ha
Even though I've played my share of it and was even on the team in high school.
I kid. Golf is harder to explain in terms of the primal things I'm talking about, but not that hard.

Mark_C -- good post, with some interesting points, and judicious use of singular and plural verbs.

The origin of golf on the field of battle is described in The Hobbit.

For the original question, only baseball holds much interest for me. (I suppose I would enjoy cricket if I knew more about it.) Baseball is the best sport to listen to on the radio.

I enjoy playing the occasional game, but don't have much skill. I have one slightly deformed finger due to an attempt long ago to field a hard-hit ground ball.

Kreisler, I have read your post, here:

____________________________________

well, I don't have tv so I don't watch anything - I would rather do something badly than watch anything.

I never had a chance to play basketball because I lived in northern Canada and with one gym in a one school town, volleyball had more teams and players than a basketball court.

I got a chance to learn to play basketball when a couple of guys at work said they played basketball every summer half court. I asked them to teach me so I could play at the community center.

It was so exciting that after a game, I couldn't go to sleep for many hours.

Since I never played sports before, there are teams, of courses, there are rules and it is like a war but everything is done as gentlemen, everyone plays by the rules, sportsmen. Not the real world like business at all. Obviously I wasn't that good because I started playing at 58, and everybody played since they were little kids, but lost weight from 240 to 165 just running around the court playing basketball.. If it wasn't for my health I would be playing it today. It is all about teamwork and most everything I did was skiing, sailing, swimming, motorcycling, etc. Playing in a band is teamwork and fun but not remotely similar like basketball - or other team sports, I guess.

Golf utterly escapes me. Well, I guess it could be more accurately stated that I escape golf.

At work, we hosted an event at this past summer's U.S. Open, which meant we had a lovely tent and tickets for everything and I did everything I could to stay as far away from it as possible. And succeeded. I gave away reserved parking, reserved seating at the last hole for the championship round, and turned away just about everything. I even drove past the event giving it a really wide berth as it was snarling traffic in and around it.
