    which one would you choose?
    Obviously, being a pro footballer would earn you most dosh, but my choice, ignoring money, would be cricketer (because I love the game) or decathlete, because I love their all round ability and physique.

    Golfer - not that I'm interested or play (although I did used to be off 3, when I played 20+ years ago). just seems a nice easy life and you can continue into your 50s

    Would even thinking of mixed mud wrestling lower the tone?-)

    Three-day eventer. That feeling of being so in tune with your horse that you could tackle any obstacle, and all that suppressed power of an athlete horse under your control in dressage. I did all three disciplines in a very very minor way years ago, although I was hopeless at dressage, but I've lost my nerve completely now and haven't even sat on a horse for years :sad:.

    I'd like to be Alf Tupper. I can already eat the fish and chips so half way there.

  15. Shooting. I was a pretty good shot when I was younger and had the chance to shoot competitively but life happened then guns became a dirty word in the public mind so I never took it up again.
