I am very interested in most athletics (Note: I do not consider NASCAR, F1, Horse Racing, Pool, or Bowling athletics). I was a baseball player, wrestler, and golfer in high school. I played intercollegiate golf at the United States Naval Academy. My favorite (active) athlete is Tiger Woods. My favorite (all-time) athlete is Ozzie Smith.
I am also interested in overall fitness activities including, but not limited to, running, weight-lifting, kettle-bells, swimming, biking, hiking.
