    I personally don't care for tennis, so badminton is kind of simliar to it. Table Tennis just makes me blow up in laughter. Just with the small table, and how serious they look with their footing. Plus they yell and grunt all the time like tennis players. Pretty hilarious!
    You should try playing it against someone, who can play it. And you wouldn't be laughing for sure. It's all about fast reflexes and it's non-stop accelearation-stop process. It's one of the most physically demanding sports, meaning that you burn 800 calories per hour if you play it the way it's supposed to be played. Of course if you can't play it, you'll burn 300 calories per hour and wonder, what's this all about.

    You know what I can't stand, the damn whistle that goes off every 2 seconds in water polo. I have the TV on at my shop and thats all I hear is that damn whistle!

    You know what's the sad part? The whistle should be heard at least twice that often. That's one of the dirtiest sports in the Universe. They have fingers up their asses all the time and those balls are squeezed at least 10 times during the match. Per person. Brrrr... What you hear is only when somebody is being drowned for more than just a couple of seconds, all those underwater maneuvers are not "seen." The rules and officiating take a lot of interest out of this sport.

    Oh trdi. It's definitely a tough sport to train for. All sports that are played professionally definitely is definitely tough.

    I just laugh because I remembered playing it as a kid. And you know how kids play. Really slow and you just want to hit the ball. To see grown men and women scream and yell at every hit. It just personally made me laugh every time.

    I think it's like someone here who made a Lacrosse topic. Something about them yelling every time they poke someone.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    Oh, I was screaming and yelling a lot, too. But it was mostly curse words only.

    Yeah, they try to protect themselves the best they can. Wearing double pants is said to help a bit.

    Usually you have to pay double for that type of action!

    Badminton is awesome. As fun to play as it is to watch.

    Yeah, Badminton is awesome. Playing 2 on 2 with talented players is so much fun... 1 on 1 is a bit too exhausting for my blood .
