This is a question Sporting Woe

In which we ask a bunch of pasty-faced shut-ins about their exploits on the sports field. How bad was it for you?

Thanks to scarpe for the suggestion.

The Greg bin.
I don't know if anyone knew who "Greg" was but the name certainly instilled fear into us.
If you forgot your PE kit, you were sent to the Greg Bin to dig through some nasty looking bits of grey clothing and select something to wear.
Naturally your mates would then take the piss mercilessly and you would start to itch.
I moved schools part way through high school and having been a county level sprinter and fair decent footballer I proceeded to hide any talents I had, preferring to stay under the radar and apply just enough effort to get away with it.
Only on the final sports day I showed what I could do, ripping off ahead of the others and winning easily which pissed the PE teacher off something rotten. He swore and cursed into my grinning face.
Happy days.

And I am sure
that now that you have had time for sober reflection, you've realized that that lack of sportsmanship would tell a sorry tale later in your life.

I learned that competitiveness is rarely something to be celebrated. This works in all aspects of my life. I'm bored witless watching sports because I don't care who wins. I'm not the greatest at competitive stuff within work either because I just do a job and I still don't care if I win.
Further to this, I find people with that competitive streak in them to be very irritating.
When asked to come up with a mission statement once I responded with
"Because 2nd place is quite acceptable".
It got me a laugh but wasn't taken up for some reason.

I have a philosophical aversion to competition
as well. But I'm not at all certain that I'm not making a virtue of a necessity.
I have never read a mission statement that didn't make me laugh in derision or spew in disgust.

Grey Clothing?
Could be worse could have been grey with crusty white stains and bits of dark red.

I'm sure there were stains.
I'd rather not think about it.
