New Quiz: What Martial Art Are You?

What marital art should you practice?

Do you practice a martial art? I know at least one of our readers does. I have never practiced a martial art before, but I’m curious about them. At this point in my life, I’m not so concerned with self defense, but I think it could be fun to practice a martial art. I like the idea of the mental aspect, and I could probably use some discipline.

One of the things that kept me from practicing a martial art when I was younger is that I didn’t know where to begin. All martial arts seemed the same to me. Of course, now I know that they are very different, and I find so many of them fascinating. I can see how people can get immersed in a particular martial art. Their depth is amazing – you could really study forever.

When I think about studying a martial art, I am drawn towards those that are a little more fun or spiritually oriented. I don’t think I would have the chops for hardcore fighting, but I wouldn’t mind picking up a few defensive moves. I would have to be having fun to keep myself motivated, so T’ai Chi or Capoeira would be ideal. (And yes, I realize they are sort of on opposite ends of the spectrum! 🙂 )

Quiz: What Football Scoring Method Are You?

If you were a football player, how would you score?

Are you ready for some football? I am! Well, sort of. As you may remember from Thursday, I’m really psyched to watch the Puppy Bowl today. The Super Bowl is great, but since I’m not rooting for any of the teams playing, I’m gonna go another way… the way of watching puppies and their extreme cuteness.

Anyway, I am a football fan at heart. I grew up watching the Denver Broncos in the days of John Elway (sorry to offend any Kansas City or Raiders fans out there!), and I proudly wore my orange jersey every Friday to school in elementary school. All the teachers and students dressed up in orange and blue, and some of the costumes were pretty wild. Later on in middle school, my friend and I ran a football pool – until we got in trouble for gambling. Oops!

One of the things that I really loved about football when I was growing up was scoring. As you probably know, football scoring is very unique, and this makes the strategy a lot more complicated than most sports. Just when you think you’ve got the game figured out, someone will kick a field goal or a team will go for two extra points on the touchdown instead of one. You never know how the scoring is going to end up for a football game, and that’s one of the things I love about it.

My love of football scoring inspired my quiz: What Football Scoring Method Are You? I hope you’ll take it even if you aren’t a huge football fan – the results will give you some interesting personality insights. And if you are a football fan, by all means, take this one in celebration of the Super Bowl. It might be fun to see what everyone else watching the game with you gets!

And as always, comment below and let me know what you get one What Football Scoring Method Are You? Does it fit you? Do you have a favorite football scoring method?

New Quiz: What Part of the Super Bowl Are You?

What do you like about the Super Bowl?
What do you like about the Super Bowl?

Excited for the big game on Sunday? Then I’ve got the quiz for you. Not excited for the game? Then I still have the quiz for you. Not even sure what I’m talking about? Then read on…

For those of us who grew up in the United States, drinking, breathing, and living football every Sunday (American football, that is), it all culminates at the Super Bowl. The two biggest teams in the NFL play each other in a huge event (single tickets can cost over $1000), with tons of celebrities, specially made commercials, and overall craziness. It’s one of the most watched TV events of the year, and people have special parties to celebrate… even if they’re not really fans of either of the teams playing.

Love it or hate it, it’s really hard to avoid Super Bowl Sunday. I don’t either love it or hate it… but I do think it’s kind of fun. So (with the urging of Mr. Blogthings), I wrote a quiz about it. What Part of the Super Bowl Are You? And no worries if you’re not a huge football fan – you still will get a fun result. I know everyone is not crazy about football (I’m a fan, but not this year!), so I wanted to write a quiz that everyone could enjoy. I hope that I succeeded 🙂

Anyway, please take What Part of the Super Bowl Are You? Let me know what you get. Does it fit you? I’m also curious…are you watching the big game this year? If so, who are you rooting for? I will be watching game related things, but not necessarily the game. I love commercials, and I LOVE the Puppy Bowl. I can’t miss that. I watch the Super Bowl when one of the teams I like is playing, but otherwise, I’m just not interested.
