    It just occurred to me while watching the Irishman Conor McGregor throw water bottles:

    I, ostensibly, know how to throw because I played American football, baseball, and, to a lesser extent, because of basketball.

    I hear that the gender differences in throwing are because men played throwing sports when they were younger and that women didn't. Thus, there's "throwing like a girl". Conor seems to disprove that though. He can throw. And he probably just played soccer.

    In Germany we have mandatory track and field training in school, like every year iirc.

    Do you not think cricketers throw a cricket ball around? Cricket is played in schools, poms know how to throw. Although cricket isn't that popular in Ireland, but in England, Australia, NZ, South Africa, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, & Sri Lanka, it is one of the BIG sports.

    Though Conor was probably too small and weak to participate in any Highland Games.

    I'm British and my throwing and catching is pathetic. I legit panic anytime I have to catch something and end up looking like a complete mong

    Sad thing is I'm British so it's not like I'm that much better with my feet either

    I wouldn't say they throw in cricket. Its more like whizzing or whipping. I wouldn't call it a proper throw. I honestly agree with TS and I didn't think I would.

    Conors throw, like his left hand, is perfect form too

    Well Connor is a bad example because as a manlet he’d be used to throwing things because that’s the only way they can get normal sized human beings to look down and see them.

    Why americans are so retarded?

    You people are obsessive with minor stuff, who gives a shit if someone can throw a bottle or how he learned to throw considering he never played Baseball. Guess what we have chalk/stone fights in school you pussies.
