Imagine if you will, the World Series of Baseball. It's the bottom of the ninth, the game is tied. You are in left field (ha, you're crap). An ambidextrous hitter comes to the plate. The pitchers throws a wild curve ball, it is struck towards you. If you catch it, you'll have saved the team. It's a high it, looks like a home run, you run towards it and jump. You can't quite reach it, you shoot out a Spidey-web, and swing yourself higher, and just manage to catch the ball, all thanks to Spidey-Baseball.

I can see this as a great advantage in all sports, not just Baseball. Imagine the tricks you'll see performed in Spidey-Gymnastic, marvel (no pun intended) at the skill of the upside down slam dunk in Spidey-Basketball, revel in the glory of helping your Spidey-football/soccer win the cup, thanks to your webshot save.

Thats just the beginning of the fun of Spidey-sports. Just think what you could do.

       thumbwax: The scores wouldn't always end up 0-0, there will be a certain amount of skill needed in web shooting.   

       Jutta: What film?

       Also a WIBNI, unless you know how to make a web-shooter.

       My idea of a spidey sport is seeing what blissmiss would do to you afterwards.

       //punking blissmiss//?   

       What, you mean giving her an eight-colour mohican, ripped-up clothes and a safety-pin through her nose? Can't see her going for that, PS.

       There's also an older movie and several TV series, not to mention the obvious comic.

       StarChaser: Never in a Spiderman film, comic, or TV Series have i seen him use his webbing to compete in a sporting event.

       I think there's something in here. Not a web-shooter sport, but one with a swingline. I'll get on it.
