What is Your Favorite Sport to Play and Why?
In our weekly Q&A installment, we asked The Greatist Team about their favorite sport to play. Here’s what they had to say:
For my dad and his family back in Liverpool, the saying went: "There's life. And then there's football." While I may not have quite the same outlook, soccer will always be the sport I hold most dear— because of him, my teammates, and that indescribable feeling you get from putting the ball in the back of the net. It's not called the beautiful game for nothing! — Jordan Shakeshaft
I'm a real sucker for ping pong! Takes lots of hand eye coordination, and it's a surprisingly exhausting workout if locked in an intense game! — David Tao
It's got to be basketball for me. I've never been the tallest in the game or even that great of a shot, but there's just something about bouncing the ball around on that court and weaving in between players that gets me pumped. — Calvin Men
I have been kicking a ball since I could walk. I always admired that futbol was both an endurance game and a game of quickness and speed. You have to be versatile and you have to think on your feet— no time for huddles or to regroup. Probably most of all, I love the game because juggling was my childhood pastime. I would go out behind the house and juggle the soccer ball— I would set a goal and I wouldn't come in until I hit that number consecutively. It is a large part of what made me who I am today. That's why I love the sport. — Cris Magliozzi
Hands down it's football. I played flag football all throughout high school, but I'm not afraid to play touch or tackle with my guy friends. Not only is it a great cardio workout (sprinting down a football field definitely burns some calories), but it's a great way to get out aggression. Plus, you can play football all year round-- the snow only adds to the calorie burn. — Leah Rocketto
I'm always a fan of sports that originated on the playground— especially kickball. I'm not very good at it (coordination, what's that?), but kickball is always a "for fun" kind of game that takes me on a trip down memory lane. — Kelli Kerkman
