Re: Why do you play sport?

cos i enjoy it. well i used to. until injuries screwed me up and i had to retire at the ripe old age of 16.

How many times must we of shot nerves witness the undoubted pain & suffering of muppets everywhere before we stand up against the cavemen??

One muppet, who wishes to remain anonymous, has this to say: "You know, I uhhhh cannot stay all the time at the you know, base of the line. Too much uhhhh pression."

It is your turn to help - The "Save A Muppet Foundation" needs you!

Re: Why do you play sport?

Because I love it [tennis]. I think that if I didn't play it, I would be pretty depressed at this point in my life because most of the people in my town are obnoxious. But that's beside the point. So YAY for sports.

Re: Why do you play sport?

cuz I enjoy it.. but also because of social reasons

CARLOSMOYÁ


Voiceless it cries,
This thing all things devours:
Wingless flutters,
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Toothless bites,
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Mouthless mutters.
Grinds hard stones to meal;

Slays king, ruins town,

And beats high mountain down.

Riddles in the dark


Proud member of the MOYAholics!
