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.

Football Frolics
Slightly off-theme but...I recall playing indoor football at school - 5-a-side sort of thing with one of those strangely hairy green footballs. Not being the glory-hunting type I found myself in defence.

Picture the scene if you will (preferably in matrix-esque slo-mo). The ball comes to me. I hoof it up the pitch. Only to hit one of the oncoming strikers right in the bollocks. He doubles over in pain. The ball rebounds to me. I go to hoof it again. This time I get him smack in the face. Job complete.

Oh, and in response to both Azrea3l and InfiniteZenMasters comments below, it is good to see both Jindod and Stusut back. You are merely evidence that AOL should revise their policy of connecting trailer parks to the internet.
