I love marcial arts, voleyball and swimming!
When I go to the beach, swim, swim, swim...It's good!
Now, with my friends and parents, we play voleyball. I always have fun!
Marcial arts? Kung-fu is my predilet. I hope you reach the black belt. Allthough being newcomer yet.
We're love sports!
I'm crazy about soccer (footbal BrE). But, nowadays I'm practicing only a lift's fork. I know I'm a couch potato or a mouse potato. But I want to change this.

Renatinha,

May I suggest the following rewrite of your sentence

"Like all Brazillians, my favorite sport is soccer, especially when my team, S.P.F.C., is playing."

I hope this makes sense and helps you.
I am a huge fan of American College Football, and it is my favorite sport, with the University of Nebraska being my favorite team.

Just two short weeks ago I did not care much, one way or the other, about soccer, but my wife almost forced me to watch some of the World Cup matches most notably Brazil and USA. I do have to admit that I am developing a taste for the sport, and can now see why it is so popular worldwide. I will even try to attend a match while in Brasil in January. I Just hope that the "Gods of American Football" will forgive me. :lol: ;)

Now, who do I cheer for Santos, Corinthians or Sao Paulo or ... ? :?

Hey Bill...My suggestion: Corinthians!!! ^^ The most awesome team on the planet !! I love it!!! ^^
Ravenna,

Thank you for your suggestion, but herein lies my problem.

I have two (step) sons who live and work in Sao Paulo, and my wife who lives with me in Pensacola. Ricardo is a Corinthian fanatic, Rodrigo is a Sao Paulo fan, and Cristina is a Sao Paulo fanatic, and my mother in law, in Jundiai, is a Corinthian fan. However I, like most Americans, cheer for the little guy, in this case possibly Santos, and why not make the whole family mad at me as opposed to just one half. ;) :lol:

I am going to have devote a large amount of time to study this conunrum very carefully. :? :lol:

Bill, what do you mean? Cheer for the little guy? :geek:
Ravenna

From what I have been told, Corinthians, and Sao Paulo have lots of FANATICS and fans, and Santos does not have that many, so by fan count they are the little guy, or the underdog, or not the favorites all synonyms. ;)

Hope I wrote this phrase properly. ^^

Bill and Ravenna,
Please note the conversation about teams is becoming off-topic.
My favorite sport is tennis. I like to play it. But I also like other sports, as volleyball and chess.
I don't have a favorite sport, because I don't like practicing.

Well, football is my favorite sport, not only it's the most popular one in Brazil, but because it's the one that someone without money or social status can practice it easily. But there're some sports that don't are popular here, so we have beeing a country of two or three sports, what is different if compared with the U.S.A. and China, where the government has social politics to spread the practice of many sports to its people. To you confirm my ideas, look at to the Brazil performance in the championships throughout the world. Our country is very good at football and voleyball, however, in the rest we are just numbers.

I have ever seen the football stopping wars and social conflicts, and to me, it's enough to make it a little more important than others about closing peoples.
Well, like some other brazilians I like to play soccer. But I luuuv extreme sports specially kitesurf :D
and I can't forget handball which I used to practice in my school :)
My favorite sport is to ride a bicycle.
My favorite sport is coccer.

In the Bristish way I like football and in the American way I like soccer.

I love karate, but I stopped when I was in the orange belt.
I like a lot Volleyball, Handball and Dodgeball, sports that make me use only the hands, not only, but especially the hands. I hate soccer, no, I don't hate, I just don't like it, I think it's very violent, and a lot of players gets hurt, that's why I don't play it, the players get sweaty, stinking, they break bones, it's very bad, but I like watching World Cup, verifying if my country wins, these things, but I like sports, although it's not my fort.
Football is my sport favorite ... and too like of basketball

Leandrocs,

I would like to suggest some changes as indicated in the following, and have you tell me why I made them or ask me why for the ones you do not understand.

I like volleyball, handball and dodgeball a lot, all are sports in which you mostly use the hands. ' I hate soccer, no, I don't hate it, but I think it's very violent, and a lot of players get hurt, sweaty, stinking and sometimes they break bones. But I like watching the world cup to see if my country wins, in general, I like sports although they are not my forte.

My favorite sport is Artistic Gymnastics. I loved to do that. My brother, who at that time was 4 years old, was better than me. It's too bad I don't do gymnastics anymore. :cry: "Saudade".
My favorite sports are soccer and volleyball. I don´t like basketball, but i am good. Among soccer and volleyball I prefer soccer, because is a sport that the result is unknow. A move can change all result of game.

Shevchenko,

If I may, I would like to suggest a few changes for your consideration, as indicated in the following rewrite.

"My favorite sports are soccer and volleyball, and even though I am good at basketball I do not like it. Between soccer and volleyball I prefer soccer because it is a sport where one move can change the outcome, and the final results are unpredictable."

This is more in line with what an American might say or write. If I can help you in your studies of English please let me know.
