This is a question School Sports Day

At some point in the distant past, someone at my school had built a large concrete tank behind the sheds and called it a swimming pool. Proud of this, they had a "Swimming Sports Day" in which everyone had to participate, even those who couldn't swim (they got to walk across the shallow end of the tank).

This would probably have been OK if the pool hadn't turned a deep opaque green the night before due to lack of maintainance. Even the school sports stars didn't want to go near the gloopy mess in the pool. We were practically pushed in. I'm sure some of the younger kids never surfaced again and the non-swimmers looked petrified.

Tell us your sports day horrors.

I like hokey the best
Take one angsty teen girl, arm her with a big stick, and send her out onto an oval full of people she hates. Let the fun begin. They'ed never seen so many fouls in their life. I just told them I was uncordinate, but we know better.

Does sex count as sport?
I recon the highschool education board has got it all wrong. They should just provide areas for teens to have sex in and then they woulden't need to provide costly sporting facilities, because all the teens would be getting enough bennificial exercise to stay fit and healthy. Oh and they could add some pron for teh ugly ones, hey, they need to keep fit too.

5 a Side
I'm going to post something funny. Well, funny at the time.

At college I was part of a 5-a-side team with an unblemished record. Of losses that is. We weren't bad, it's just that all the other teams were from the sports course and we were just playing for fun - we were, of course, athletic enough and all that, but just not to that honed level that was required...

One match stands out in that it was the best 5-a-side game I've ever played in. We played on an internal court with unforgiving walls - the game started off ok, we were holding our own in that we were winning - then it started off with a simple foul. I passed the ball away and stopped, the guy bearing down on me didn't and steam rolled me - when I got up, I decided that I'd repay the favour, but I just couldnt' get near him, but my mates could. What went on from there was so many off-the-ball incidents, blatant fouls, charging into the walls, etc.

We lost, of course but it went down in folklore as the best game that we played in and everyone watched (there was a big observation window in the canteen). The opposition thought so too - they were and some still are - our mates and we often talk about that game all those years ago.

Ok, not so funny, but it was a fantastic game in a non-malicious way.

please can we change the QOTW
before we're all killed in a scrum of spiked boots, our heads cracked open with hockey sticks and javelins, blood pouring over the ground to create a crimson swimming pool...

rather like last year's Sports Day.
