The biggest pussy sport on Earth, Cross Country is based solely on the principle of running away faster than anyone else. It is a sport engineered specifically for anyone who can't hit, score, or defend. Called X-Country by some enormous douche bags, participants are classified by their skinny builds and arrogant attitudes. They believe themselves to be the "toughest" athletes, despite the crippling effect a strained muscle, cramp, or bruise has on them.
"Erin bruised his toe, looks like he can't participate in any Cross Country events for six decades."

"Don't mind his cockiness, he's in Cross Country. I'll go back later and use the real athleticism I've learned from hockey and football to kick his ass."

Simply exercising.

Requires no skill, all you literally have to do is run. The easiest activity one can do and it is called a sport.

The only reason people do cross country is because they are too small or fragile to do sports like football, soccer, volleyball, or any contact sports. People don't go to Cross country events because who wants to see someone exercise for 15 minutes?!?!?!

This "sport" gets way too much publicity and the runners think that they are better than anyone else simply because they can win. they say Cross is a team event but it really boils down to an individual effort. It is a competition of who is more in shape, not who is better and smarter.

Cross runners often have many shirts explaining that they can run. Most of them are putting down true sports by saying things like, "My sport is your sports punishment"

Please! Your "sport" is exercise. My sport takes BASIC exercise and requires more skill to be able to run AND throw, kick, catch, dive, etc.
I run cross_country

Bitch you exercise!!!!!

You should come and watch my cross-country meet, I'm gonna go for a PR
I would but I don't wanna watch people run around, its like nascar without the exciting parts

Basic, timed medium distance running events held over semi-rough, off-road terrain. Due to the limited popularity of the sport, most cross country "athletes" tend to think of themselves as elite and superior to individuals who partake in other sports. Unfortunately for them, this is never really the case, seeing as most other sports involve grueling daily practice oftentimes on top of frequent roadwork of equal or greater distance. However, a cross country "athlete" will never admit this. Vast majority of participants didn't have the hand eye coordination for baseball, the explosiveness and sheer physical strength for football and rugby, reaction time and accuracy for soccer, the physical toughness and tenacity for wrestling, the stamina and adaptability of triathletes, and the combination of all aforementioned qualities required for boxing, MMA and other such combat sports.
"Dude, us Cross country runners are hard core, we do fucking 3.1 miles per race, and sometimes run up to 8 miles per day!"

"I scoff at just how physically pathetic you are, not only do you lack the stamina of a marathon runner or even those who do half marathons, you're also stick thin and have a laughable musculature. Why don't you try a real sport for once, at least you wouldn't look like a skeleton with sleeves."

easiest sport on the planet. running 10 miles daily is a piece of cake. the bad part is that not very many attractive chicks participate in it.
coach: You broke another school record.

athlete: wow. cross country is getting old.

Is that act of pretending you are in a sport when really you do what 90% of people looking for a little cardio do when they work out, run a few miles. To be considered a cross country runner, the following must be done: Weigh under 120 lbs (regardless of sex), wear shorts with an inseam of no more than 2", take your shirt off whenever possible to show others your emaciated body stretched over an alien skeleton, hang with only fellow cross country runners (doucheness amplification), make sure that other people are aware of just how much of sport your "sport" is (regardless of that fact that all you do is try to out-exercise a large doucheherd of fellow runners galloping across lawns and wooded areas).

Bob: Would you rather stick your cock down a rattlesnake's throat or be seen by the girl you like in the vicinity of a cross country team?
Ted: 'grabs rattlesnake'

I tried out for the cross country team, but then I woke up from my nightmare, relieved I wasn't actually a goofy, douchey, athlete wannabe.

a sport that just involves running, not any real talent or practice just running. or jogging. for long periods at a time. no real teams or rules.... just running
look at that guy jogging, or is he an athlete in cross country... what's the difference?

A sport for kids who are unathletic. They can run fast for a long time (for the most part), and thats about it. In elementary school they were picked last for soccer, football, kickball basketball, etc. because they lack hand eye coordination, and a general mental capacity to anything other than run in a straight line and hop over the occasional rock or two. Humans have evolved to run, they think doing something natural is somehow a sport.
1. I didn't make the cut for any of the sports teams so I do cross country
2. Nah, I didn't wanna take P.E. it's too hard, just join cross country.
