The Next Best Thing to a Ham Sandwich (a webpage by Jeff DePree)
Travel School Work Sports Music


I've always wanted to be one of those people who is good at sports. To that end, I've acquired just about every kind of sport equipment imaginable; windsurfer, surfboard, rock climbing shoes, and the list goes on... In the end I've found that due to an utter lack of coordination, pretty much the only atheticism I can handle is running in a straight line (and possibly around curves as well, given that there are neon markers to keep me on the right path and no incongruities in the terrain). Sometimes I can adapt this skill to other arenas; in soccer or ultimate frisbee, it is often possible to steal the ball, or at least injure a member of the opposing team, simply by running really fast in the right direction.
