I don't like sports, but let me tell you about parkour
« on: January 31, 2007, 07:02:36 PM »
So, I go to a university.  There's a free class being offered called "Leadership Winthrop," Winthrop University being where I go to school.  We were doing an ice-breaker and it was revealed that I care for no sports what so ever, and that same apathy covers our basketball team, the Winthrop Eagles.  It was amazing.

Every one in the room was silent when I told them that I wouldn't even root for our team when it came to our most evil opposing team, X, and then I tossed in the "Though, I study the art of movement, parkour." 

It was alot of fun.

They also looked at me weird when I told them I was learning leadership techniques so that I could take over the world. 

hehe,

Bobb:

You just got so many cool points from me there. I really couldn't give a rat's ass whether the Colts or the Heat win the baseball game, so I'm with you. When I did that leadership class I had a similar moment of ostracization, but that's another story ... (GO, FALCO, YEAAA!!)

You can't just say 'well that's another story' and not tell it.

What is falco?

Yes I can. 8)

Also, "but that's another story..." is the ending line to Neverending Story, and Falco (oh wait! My bad, it's Falkor (bless wikipedia)) is the luck dragon character Bastian is riding at the end...

Cool story bro! Last time I've read such awesome things was Hamlet essay at https://tooly.io/hamlet/ website. Yes, I'm joking a little bit but it's always interesting to read someone's stories and opinion. That is why Hamlet poem is so interesting and a masterpiece in general. I will search for more cool stuff on this forum.
