    Most Disappointing Athletic Fail

    Tied for the last spot to go to nationals my sophomore year of JUCO and I take 42 putts to miss it by three. The most embarrassing golf I have ever played. Defined the yips.

    I forgot about intramurals. Derek Schmigdall absolutely obliterated me coming across the lane one time. I mean just leveled my ***.

    Re: Most Disappointing Athletic Fail

    Being an 85% free throw shooter as a freshman in high school and then proceeding to miss 6 straight in the final minute of a game and losing by 1 point. The day my high school career pretty much ended.

    Re: Most Disappointing Athletic Fail

    Got leveled by my old man after hauling in a pass in our family Thanksgiving football game a couple years ago. Cracked a rib and had to miss the Christmas game. I continue to get **** from him every time anyone in our family wants to go out and throw the ball around.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Missing the 15 foot shot to tie up the game at the buzzer of the 4th grade Peach basket. Still haunts me to this day

    Should have been. It did cross my mind.

    They aren't tough. Spirit Hollow. The sad part is that it was blowing about 30 mph and I was pretty solid tee to green. In fact it was probably the best I hit the ball all year and I ****ed it all up with whatever it was i was doing on the greens.

    I almost got ejected from a bball IM game for arguing with a ref. But that was because the ref was friends with the other team and my 7 player team ended up with 30 fouls in the game. One more foul on anyone and we would have had to finish the game 4 v 5.

    Re: Most Disappointing Athletic Fail

    My junior year of HS we went out to play CB AL/LC at Rosenblatt. As part of the #1 in the state at the time, I didn't see the field that much. I got in to pinch run, went first to third on a base hit and when my teammate stole second, I broke for home. I took a glance down to second to see if they were going to try to throw home or not, and proceeded to kick myself in the calf and fall flat. I still touched home, with my face.

    Banned from ISU Intramurals my first year after taking a guy out during a soccer game. Intentionally kicked our goalie in the ribs and I wasn't going let that go without retaliation.

    Re: Most Disappointing Athletic Fail

    I loved sports, but never got into them in much of an organized fashion. Played rec league a bit in basketball and softball after I got out of school.

    Probably the worst in softball was playing a night game and ran up on a pop fly to shallow left, stared right into the lights as I was running, noticed that I had run up too far, staggered backwards and fell on my butt, missing the ball by about 10 feet.

    Re: Most Disappointing Athletic Fail

    Oh lord I forgot about my try at hockey. Had never ice skated before. Got kicked out of a game because I checked someone. It really wasn't my fault, I didn't know how to stop or turn very quickly. I'm glad there's no video of this. I was awful.
