Once was an athlete, now just semi-athletic. I am still able to do a lot of the things I did in my youth (breaking, for example; bboy for life). Tore my right knee up my Jr. year in HS and had to give up competitive sports. Moved to another state midway through Jr. year, and then switched schools again for my Sr. year. Wasn't fully healthy enough to play in time and it was a wrap. The urge to play will never really go away, mainly because I didn't have the chance to see how far I could go with it. I turned to other stuff to try and fill the void, but it wasn't the same. Physically, I'm stronger than I was in my youth, but I'm nowhere near as fast as I once was. I wager I'm faster than most dudes around my age (35), but it hurts to run for extended lengths of time.

Heard a radio morning show going over this the other day, and been meaning to ask.

They went all over the place on the subject. Some things that caught my attention:

Athletes actively play sports.
Well what is a sport then? Is lifting weights a sport?
Sometimes.
Power lifting, weight lifting like the olympics...
Body building?
No thats just to look good.
Its called a sport, though.
Its not in the olympics.
Neither is football.


And so on...
They were actually pretty funny ripping on each other.
Even went into the end of ROCKY III "You fight great, but i'm a great fighter" scene.

Personally, i dont think i'm an athlete. I dont play/like sports all that much. I technically can, i guess, but have no desire to.
I like to work out and run, and learned to box and wrestle, but not to compete. The Army made me learn combatives but i'd never participate in "tournaments" they had.

A lot of you guys work out but, i've no idea if you play any sports, and am curious where you stand on defining athletic vs athlete, and which you are.

I'd say I'm athletic now.   Can I compete?   Ya,  if I made that my. Focus again.   After I got out of high school and college.  I'd always found somewhere to compete.  I'd started training again for track in my late 20's going to a lot of local open meets and racing against some good competition.   Hell,  even raved against Ju'warren Hooker and I believe it was Steve Bell who was the American Champ in the 200m at the time.  Not sure about that second guys name. 

     But,  I'd normally compete in something to see the results of working out.   Basketball it was normally,  my speed, vert, and endurance, and shooting accuracy that benifitted.
    Softball speed getting infield homeruns,  vert, power I'd smack the shit out of a softball.  I could always read where the ball was going when hit also, same with where someone would try to Move or pass a ball playing hoops.  Guess,  that's why i had so many steals in a game.

Softball counts in the same way Bocce Ball counts. Old dudes for sure, like, respect and all but c'mon. Not the same.

Lol, Bocce ball doesn't look like there's any effort involved at all.  And playing softball on base with military members is
quiet a bit more competitive in comparison.  Bocce ball looks like it's less strenuous than a game of corn hole. 
And I don't mean ramming it in Hamburglar's backside.  He'd probably enjoy it nonetheless. 
Softball was one of the things I was involved with at that time.  Aside, from sprinting, hoops and lifting.
