    What's the dumbest thing you ever did while playing a sport?

    First time I played baseball I bragged about getting a strike because "strike" sounded cool.

    I also was playing too much pocket pool once and the coach asked "do you need to use the restroom Matthew".

    Playing flag football in the fifth grade I passed the ball to the opposite team and I wasn't even quarter back. I was okay linebacker but on the offense I was like Joe Biden trying to give a speech and remember the constitution or quote the founding fathers.

    My sisters friends asked me to point out the girls I thought were hot in a list of students. On one occasion I got excited and pointed to a cute blonde. They laughed and said, " that's a guy".

    As a wrestler in Libby Montana I took second at a tournament against a columbia falls national champion, and that silver medal wasn't good enough so I cried like a sore loser in front of everyone and shook my opponents hand combatively afterwards and was asked to quit wrestling.

    It all comes down to pride and greed. Learn to lose. It's easier than winning.

    Scripture says the humble shall be exalted, the proud shall be humbled. The meek shall inherit the earth.

    I did something like that once. We were going to lunch from work, saw what appeared to be an attractive lady talking to someone in the parking lot.

    I told my friend "whooo! look @ those legs"! He started laughing his ass off. I'm like "what"?

    "that's not a chick, that's DS"! ... oops! long tanned legs, short shorts, long blonde hair... sure looked like a woman.

    Oh well

      I don't know if I would call it dumb but one of my biggest regrets in sports was in a summer tournament, I was throwing a no-hitter into the 6th inning of a 7 inning Baseball game and I decided to shake the catcher off for a pitch, which means that I wanted to throw a different pitch than the one he gave me the sign for and the batter broke up my no-hitter on that pitch. I think I shook him off to throw a curveball and nobody was coming close to touching my fastball that day, but in my defense, nobody was touching the curveball either, so it's kind of one of those things where I think I was just overthinking it to try to keep them guessing.

      I got high before a baseball game once and while I didn't play terrible, it wasn't all that enjoyable and kinda dumb.

        ^^ That "thinking" stuff got me in trouble playing baseball too. I was a fast runner and a few times I got overly aggressive on the base paths... pissed my coach off.

        I toked once before a practice, realized it wasn't such a good idea lol.

          I just had fun, so I have no complaints. I didn't seriously consider baseball a profession, but I pitched a no hitter every single game and got a grand slam every at bat. This is over the course of a thousand games. They nicknamed me the burger, cause I was as good as a burger.

            Not me, but Fisherman told me a funny story from when he was in his 20s about going to football (UK, so as in soccer) practice while tripping on mushrooms. He was wandering around at the wrong end of the pitch and suddenly heard what he describes as "an almighty bellowing" and his coach red in the face, shouting his name.. Apparently coach had been trying to get his attention but he was entirely oblivious to the build up, and also to being at the wrong end of the pitch

              Dumbest was probably jumping over a hurdle backwards during practice. Those things are designed to fall right over if you hit them in the right direction, but hit them the opposite way and you're getting flipped up in the air and dropped on your face. And of course, I tripped over this one.

              Most embarrassing would probably be 145 pound me getting hit completely unaware by the guy who was ohio state's starting fullback two years later and flying at least 5 yards through the air. Honorable mention probably goes to the baseball that hit me in the eye while I was in right field not paying attention because no balls ever come to right field in little league.

                The dumbest thing was hard sparring with a severe migraine headache against a larger person. Every punch felt much more painful than usual. The trainer stopped the sparring match and asked if i was ok because he saw something was wrong. I said i was fine to "tough it out." Afterwards i felt worse. I felt dizzy and wobbly and asked the trainer for a ride home. Trainer knew something was not right because of how i looked and i never ask for rides home. Arriving home i still felt dizzy and wobbly. Shortly after i threw up.

                  With that good of luck, having bases loaded at every at-bat, I'm thankful you didn't join the major leagues.
                  Imagine making everyone else on the field look that bad? You might not have gotten through the first season w/ all the jealousy that would cause!

                  Btw, can I have your autograph?
