    If you could play professional sports,what would it be?

    Myself it would be golf.I know the really great ones,like Tiger Woods gets mega-bucks,plus endorsements.But I would be happy to earn a nice $300,000 a year,after the taxes and expenses.And you could compete until you're sixty if you stay heathy enough.I know back in Michael Jordan's heyday,he was getting 36 million a year.Heck,I'd play a couple of seasons and leave while I was on top. What would you choose to play?

    My first choice would be MMA fighting in the UFC.
    My second choice would be hockey.

    I've always wanted to be a "professional bench warmer". The coaches seemed to think I was good at it through school. Ok, just kidding.

    Seriously though, I would have had to start when I was a bit younger of course but probably baseball.

    Edit: But think about that first choice. Just think about it if the team goes to the Superbowl or the world series. You get a front row seat and a ring just for showing up.

    Hell....the nightmare you can't wake up from.

    Sin is like electricity, it takes the path of least resistance. (the shortest path to ground).

    Jesus said He is “The Way”, not “A” way. Jesus said He is “the Truth”, not “A” truth. Jesus said He is “The Life”, not “A” life. No man comes to the Father but by Me. Are we serving a man or are we serving God?

    I would do what a close friend of mine does... World Machine Gun Championship Shooting. My friend recently won the world championship. He works for Colt and gets all of the arms and ammo he can stand to shoot. What a job!!!

    Hockey for me. Too bad I can't skate very well.
    It is only the cynic who claims “to speak the truth” at all times and in all places to all men in the same way, but who, in fact, displays nothing but a lifeless image of the truth… He dons the halo of the fanatical devotee of truth who can make no allowance for human weaknesses; but, in fact, he is destroying the living truth between men. He wounds shame, desecrates mystery, breaks confidence, betrays the community in which he lives, and laughs arrogantly at the devastation he has wrought and at the human weakness which “cannot bear the truth”. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in Ethics.

    Isn't this pretty much the same sport?

    Me personally I'd like to be an NFL quarterback.

    I thought about it,but IMO fishing would be too tense for me to have fun,I'd be too stressed trying to win. I wouldn't enjoy myself. Being a guide or a outfitter would be cool.I could do that,I reckon.

    Obedience to God is more than a soldier obeying his commander. It is our grateful response to the Lover of our souls.

    CHURCH: Where worship is enjoyed, not endured - Grace is preached, not legalism - And Christ is exalted, not religion!

    Basketball would probably be the most fun sport to excel in...with tennis running a close second.

    Extreme snow skiing wouldn't be too bad either...get paid to travel around the world skiing the sickest lines known to man while Warren Miller films you...yeah, that wouldn't suck.

    Soccer (football). Nations love it, nations hate it. Riots break out because of it.

    Most of the world plays it...and almost idolizes it. Beyond enough to survive and provide for family, I don't really care that much about the $$$. If I was REALLY good and an international superstar, think of all the open doors (Colossians 4:1)!
