I don't think it's a true sport as there is no game played with an accumulating score. It has its place and fanbase don't get me wrong, I just don't consider it in my list of sports. It also does not include physical movement.

If it's NASCAR you're referring to, then your wrong about it not being a sport. It's not just like driving around the block in your street car. Inside a racecar, the g-forces are constantly trying to rip the driver ouot the window, it get's to friggin 150 degrees (F) and it's more mentally exausting then any other sport.

Soccer. Although I don't like how important money has become in who will win or not. So I limited my interest on my favorite club and the national team.
I also did karate for a while.

Yeah, like with stinking Chelsea (or Chel$ea as I call them). So do you have a favorite club?

VfB Stuttgart, so just my home club.
International I followed Liverpool for a while, but now I watch the Premier League only few times the year.

Then it must've been great to see them win the league last year. I know it feels great to see my team Arsenal back to top form. Hopefully things go well for Stuttgart in the Bundesliga!

Yeah, I almost couldn't believe it. As VfB Fan you are used to the fact that the team always loses shortly before they could win anything. Unfortunatelly they have a lot of injuries and problems at the moment. Uefa Cup will be the best result this season.
Is Hleb still playing for Arsenal? If yes, how is he doing?

Yeah, he is. And he's really taken off this year. He's improved every area of his game, and is now one of our best players. His dribbling especially has improved so much, that it won't be long until he can compete with Ronaldo, Kaka, Ribery and others. What would we do without Hleb?
