This is a question School Sports Day

At some point in the distant past, someone at my school had built a large concrete tank behind the sheds and called it a swimming pool. Proud of this, they had a "Swimming Sports Day" in which everyone had to participate, even those who couldn't swim (they got to walk across the shallow end of the tank).

This would probably have been OK if the pool hadn't turned a deep opaque green the night before due to lack of maintainance. Even the school sports stars didn't want to go near the gloopy mess in the pool. We were practically pushed in. I'm sure some of the younger kids never surfaced again and the non-swimmers looked petrified.

Tell us your sports day horrors.

Rugby is ace.
At age of 14 I fucking HATED sport and avoided it at all costs. Then my mates all said "Come and play rugby 'nator, it's a right old laugh and you get to duff people up without getting lines, we go on tour and drink unhealthy amounts of beer and for some unknown reason, the uglier you are, the more girls are attracted to you". So off I trot, and do you know, I loved it. I got used to the bigger guys smashing my head in and even the sight of a guy getting hit in the side of the head with a rugby ball, causing his eye to pop out of it's socket didn't put me off. Although the sight of the guy getting his nuts stood on did cause me to have my doubts. But the time we went on tour and the PE teachers warned us not to go out and get pissed and we went out anyway and did just that, and met said teachers coming out of a pub at chucking out time absolutely rat-arsed was fucking great. If you hate rugby, there is something wrong with you*.

*Apologies if there actually is something wrong with you
