Who is in to sports, what sports do you follow?
I'm a massive football fan, support Newcastle United.
I'm also into professional wrestling (WWE) Yes, I know...fairly sad, but hey, we like what we like! :)

What about you?

Sports... I don't know many designers who like sports, unfortunately! I'm into football, I've always been a United supporter! Then again, I think it would be more fun to support a team who you are not too sure if they will win every match, like Newcastle United... thehee!
I love the RedBull signature series like mountain biking, snowboarding and surfing... (although never done any of them!)

Everyone should play a sport in my opinion! There are so many health benefits, it's unbelievable.
I don't watch that much sport any more, I used to be into football, I supported Newcastle United, but the whole thing just grew kind of boring, I just don't think I could handle supporting and watching Newcastle AND England games... it was just too much!
I do quite like playing tennis, I play at quite a large club in West Sussex and once I am able to cope with the weather again (blood circulation problem/Raynaud's Syndrome - hands get incredibly cold, difficult to hold a racket etc) then I will be playing again at least twice a week.
I quite enjoy cycling too, I used to do a lot of camping and cycling. Nothing like carrying 3 stone of equipment on a 10 mile bike ride!
P.S. You know a 'sport' is a joke when people feel the need to pre-fix the word professional to it ;)

Oh if only you knew....! I'm a wine and spirits man myself. I do find it quite funny when you're in a group of people drinking beer on a night out though. You don't see them for half the night, they're constantly running backwards and forwards between the toilet!

Haha that's very true. I can't get away with wine but spirits, rum and lemonade, all night long.

Newcastle fan?
Also, you're totally right about running. It's about as fun as watching the fielders (is that what they're called?) in cricket.

Yeah man, can see why people see it that way for sure. But if your really into your cars and you know the sport well, then its just incredible. Pit stops, strategy Faster cars racing faster cars, slower cars racing slower cars battling for points. You know have DRS and KERS which is immense. Developed Tracks, degrading tyres, Weather, Decision making...I could go on.
As for the Super Bowl, watched in for half hour. Bored me.
I'm a massive football fan though, love sport overall

That's all out of my depth!

I do love football though. Who do you support?
