Last night I stayed up to watch the tennis — Andy Murray won, hurray — and it made me quite nervous. Lots of tense action, epic rallies, tie breakers, etc. I always wished that I was absolutely amazing at a sport — not just good but world class. So my question today is this: If you could be world class at any activity (a sport, a trade, anything) what would it be and why?
Strangely enough, despite the fact I haven't played in a while, I would still choose football. I can't help it. When I was young, I used to play all the time, and it always felt like the most 'important' sport to me. I'd watch tennis when Wimbledon was on, and I'd play golf during the British Open, but football was always this permanent fixture in my life.
So if I had to choose to be world class at anything, I'd still choose football.
What about you guys?
