    This is a fun question for us Badminton fans/addicts

    .
    It really shows how many of us here@Badminton Central are addicted to Badminton.

    Still waiting for someone to tell us that they dream about Badminton in their sleep. :):):)

    Perhaps, in dreams...... played against Lin Dan and won the match ! :D:D:D

    It would be nice to find a university offering a Degree in Badminton

    .

    A man hitting his wife on the head in his sleep, while dreaming about Badminton

    Hahaha... Luckily your arm isn't swinging wildly about as if trying to do a SMASH. ;););)

    I have heard a man hitting his wife on the head in his sleep, while dreaming he was doing a SMASH. :D:D:D

    Formulating in your mind how to play better the next time

    .
    So you must be one of them who have voted for the 'Every minute of the day' category.

    You must be formulating in your mind and pondering every minute of the day, how to play better the next time you get on the court.

    Not thinking of Badminton while playing it : It's impossible

    .
    Hey, we now have someone putting a vote for the 'Only when I am at the Badminton court playing' category. It is a MUST, because you have to think about Badminton when you are on court playing it. :D:D:D

    The next Periodic Poll Results will be commented after more votes have been received.

    And end up getting sick of it.

    Don't underestimate the ability of something you love becoming something you loathe.

    Hence it's always important to have something else when one is not on court to keep the feeling fresh - it's like meeting the girl you sort of fancied after a while of not seeing her.
