I played Football, Basketball, Baseball in junior high school. Football and Baseball in high school (Football until after my sophomore year, Baseball through out high school). I was being scouted for college and professionally through my junior year of high school but that ended with a serious eye injury the summer between my junior and senior year. I did play my senior year but as a shell of what I had played before the eye injury. One careless moment Memorial Day 1982 changed the course of my life. I would love to have a crystal ball and just one time see what might have been had I not injured my eye.

I took up snowboarding starting in my 30's because i hadn't yet destroyed my wrists apparently. Did my ankles and knees in skateboarding so it was a natural progression...

In fact, you should be grateful for what you have. The film only confirms that
Life is like a basketball game, you can shoot but miss. sometimes you even lose a game. There is always a next tournament, but never a time to give up. Mike R.

Was into martial arts when I was younger. Then tennis, started playing golf a couple of years ago. Been wanting to get back into tennis for some time but have been recovering from some injuries.

Started with baseball as a small kid and was heavily into it. Got to middle school and wrestling took over. Stuck with wrestling into high school and junior college. While in high school I also dabbled in track and field, cross country, and football. Nowadays I'm into Jiu-Jitsu and running.

Thanks! However, I wouldn't have become who I am and experienced all the fortunate things I have from my wife, my kids and so many other things had things been different. I don't regret what happened. Just curious whether I actually had talent or if it was more in my own head. C'est La Vie
