(R) We like sports! (^ ▽ ^)



WARNING: There is no point to this post. Don't say I didn't warn you! (° ▽ °)/

警告:この投稿は全然面白くありません。警告はしましたので!


Jun and I are pretty active people, and while I've never considered myself a team sports person (gym was the WORST CLASS EVER), I do really enjoying playing sports with Jun.

Junと私はよくエクササイズをします。チームスポーツは苦手ですが(体育の授業は最悪でした)、Junとスポーツをするのは好きです。

I like one-person sports, like rock climbing, skiing, etc. But team sports had such a negative connotation for me growing up that even hearing about them now I'm just like noooooooo!!! Truly, I am absolutely awful at sports. I took a tennis class in college once and by the end of the class I was able to hit a third of the balls that came my way (note: not get them over the net), and I was proud of that. Also, I'm so inflexible that I cannot touch my toes. For reals. My one redeeming factor is I have a CORE OF STEEL. I could out-arm plank any one of you. ANY DAY BRO, BRING IT ON.

個人で出来るスポーツは好きですが(ロッククライミング、スキー,etc…)、団体スポーツは聞いただけで嫌になるほど苦手です。本当に団体スポーツが下手です。大学でテニスのクラスを選択したのですが、クラスの最終日になっても3回に1回しか打てませんでした(ネットは超えませんでした)。また、体が硬くてつま先まで手が届きません。唯一の長所は上半身くらいです。腕立て伏せなら誰にも負けません。かかってきなさい。


But Jun loooooves sports and so he's been teaching me how to throw a baseball and how to play badminton. And, despite the fact that American football pretty much doesn't exist in Japan, he also taught me how to throw a football. XD And actually I can throw a football pretty decently now. Like, only 15 feet with my noodle arms, but it's got a beautiful spin. ^^

しかし、Junはスポーツ好きで、野球ボールでキャッチボールの仕方やバドミントンを教えてくれました。そして、日本にはアメフトはありませんが、フットボールの投げ方も教えてくれて、それなりに投げられるようになりました。私のひょろい腕で5メートルくらい投げられました。綺麗にスピンもしながらです。(実際は10メートルくらいは投げてました。Jun)


And I am simple enough that I really, really enjoy just throwing a football back and forth with Jun!! The one shortcoming being that we don't own a football...
Anyway, the first time Jun visited me in America, we spent the day at a family friend's house and that was actually the first time Jun ever threw a football. I have a clip of it. ^^

私は単純なので、キャッチボールだけで十分楽しめました。ただ、フットボールのボールは借りもので、ボールは買わないといけません……
まあ、とにかくJunがアメリカに初めて来た時、母の友人宅の庭で彼がフットボールを初めて投げた時のものです。↓


I wonder if there are any videos about sports/working out we could make that would interest anyone? I mean it probably wouldn't be until next spring or summer, but just a thought!

私達にできるスポーツで何かできるものがあれば動画にしようと思いますが、どんなのがいいでしょう……。
まあ、来年の春か夏までは一緒に出来ませんが。

  8. This blog post totally had a point! Loved it!
    I would also totally like to watch a video of you throwing a football back and forth with Jun. I do really enjoy your educational videos, but for some weird reason I LOVE the ones where you both just hang out together randomly. Maybe because there's so much to learn and see as well.. like Japanese suburbs and malls and - most importantly - kanahebi <3 !! Anyway, thanks so much for sharing all of this!

  11. For his first time throwing a football, I am very impressed at how far he threw it. I really would be interested in hearing about what the sports culture is like in Japan. If I am correct, I know people are passionate about baseball. I wonder if other sports get their attention as well. Like soccer or badminton. I myself played soccer and baseball when I was a bit fit. Thanks to my friends, I took up badminton and I loved it. It's a good workout too.
