Nick Sheridan! It's an honor.
you just used the S word. tht is uncalled for....now wash out your mouth with soap.... slap yourself as punishment and never use it again.
This happens quite a bit. Anthony Alford, who is going to be attending Southern Mississippi in the fall on a full football scholarship (and may be their starting QB) is a 3rd round draft pick of the Toronto Blue Jays. He signed a contract with the Jays who have agreed to let him play football.
I competed in Fists of Fury Tournament in Tokyo under the name Bruno Hockaluggi. I took 3rd place but felt like a champion.
To be fair, Shaq has seven base-on-balls.
never ever swing.
But by night, I am a crime-fighting superhero.
i don't know about y'all, but i would LOVE MeganGoBlue's perspective on how hard it is to hit a professionaly pitched baseball. I mean, I sort of feel like I could get at least ONE hit in 32 attempts.
Once read somewhere that ignoring making contact half the people in the world wouldn't be able to get the bat into the hitting zone by the time the ball got there.
Would have gone pro if it weren't for my bum knee.
I would have went pro too, if I wasnt 5'6 and slow.
I used to be a pro, but then I took an arrow to the knee.
Does pocket pool count? I'm a pro.
I heard about you, you requested to play only on away fields.
Yes. I was a football player at Auburn.
No, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night
Back in the 1980s I had a stint as a professional Ninjutsu fighter. I got into a bit of trouble when I went AWOL from the army to participate the Kumite, an illegal tournament in Hong Kong. Totally worth it, though, as I was the first westerner to have ever won the tournament. My last opponent was a real dick, though, threw sand in my eyes and everything.
When it comes to any and all martial arts training, there really is no substitute for kicking trees over.
huh who would've thought. i'm kicking trees over from today onwards like its my job.
is crippling anxiety a sport?
You know what will help with that? Stimutacs.
And if that doesn't work? More stimutacs.
as Marduk would say, "eat some more pills, pillhead".

My wife had some e-sport sponsorships back when she was in high school and undergrad. I used to think I was decent at Starcraft, but against her I normally never even live long enough to map out her full base.
I flipped her monitor off once thinking it would give me a few seconds of respite and be funny. She just left it off, continued hitting hotkeys for her bound commands and slaughtered me. At this point it's just pure muscle memory and it's creepy as hell that she can visualize the map in her head.
but then I remembered your wife is Korean.
I too was like 'WTF??'. Korea, the land where people play Starcraft UNTIL THEY DIE
BTW It's not genetic; my folks are Korean, and I absolutely suck at the game.
As a Koream friend described video games:
"It's not really a good game unless at least two people starve to death playing it in Korea."
They actually have laws about that now where the internet cafes have to close and the time you can play new releases is limited.
You better hope that's all that she remembers that well.
(Oh, who am I kidding...wives never forget ANYTHING you ever do wrong).
...and you still haven't "mapped out her full base"?? C'mon man.
I was paid (not handsomely at all) to play in a Mexican soccer tournament in St. Louis while I was still playing in college. It wasn't completely obvious at all. Seriously. A 6'4" white goalie surrounded by a team of 5'6" field players.
So, define professional. I don't think it counts, but by the loosest definition, I may be able to sidle in and quasi-qualify.
to get paid to play semi-pro?
The question was not: Has anyone committed any NCAA violations? That can be a different thread.
You can start it yourself - as soon as we have at least two more video game threads.
"Have you committed any NCAA violation" has the potential to be an awesome thread, maybe as awesome as any this offseason.
I would read that thread avidly. Heck I could even CONTRIBUTE to it, although not with anything terribly interesting.
I raced cars in some pro series.
I'm Ted Brogan. I played a little minor league ball in the 80's. I was supposed to play in Japan, but I failed a drug test.
Nobody failed drugs tests in baseball in the 90's!
I got papers if you got weed!
Big D (Dallas, TX) Winter league 2012 Flag Football Champions "Balls Deep!" Best part is in the championship game we wiped the floor with the same team that beat us twice in the regular season! Hooray for playoffs!
Collegiately (football) - yes.
Professionally - not a chance...
I was a pornstar. Does that count?
Did you just get stopped by the TSA?

If I was on a computer I'd neg you for failing to mark this comment as not safe for lunch.
Lol. It's really not safe for anything.
I felt like clawing my eyes out when I saw it (back in the day when I was on Rivals' Mainboard).
Said the guy without any pants on.
They're yoga pants. Idiot.
