I’ve done a few Word Associations with you over the last while, and today it’s time for another one – This time with the theme ‘Sports’! I’m sure we all have our favourite sports, or ones we’re not so keen on, or maybe even ones we don’t understand. As usual I’ll throw the names of some sports at you, and I want you to note down the first word that comes into your mind when you read the name of the sport.

So here goes…

  1. Football (soccer)
  2. American football
  3. Cricket
  4. Darts
  5. Golf
  6. Pool
  7. Tennis
  8. Hockey
  9. Basketball
  10. Swimming

wordsSo how did you get on with those sports? Did you find it easy? Did your answers surprise you or were they just as you expected?

Well here’s my responses to my questions:

  1. Rangers
  2. Confusing
  3. Boring
  4. Dark
  5. Walking
  6. Green
  7. Wimbledon
  8. Ouch
  9. Tall
  10. Loud

I still believe that when we respond with the first words that come into our minds, our answers tell us a lot about our emotional state, and what’s important to us at that particular point in time.

Bearing all this in mind, review your answers, does my theory hold true?

By the way, if you want me to explain any of my answers, just ask!

5. Teacher

6. Football

7. Email

8. Food

9. Prayer

So how did you get on with those words? Did you find it Difficult? Did your answers surprise you or were they just as you suspected?

1. Information

2. God

4. Learn

Were any of your answers the same as mine? Did any of your answers surprise you? What about my answers, were any of them the same as mine?

I love these word association games, especially if we really do say the first word that comes into our mind when the hear the trigger word. I think when we do that our answers, tell us a lot about what’s on our mind, and what’s important to us. So bearing this in mind, review your answers, does my theory hold true?

As I said before when I posted my first Word Association blog post, I sometimes just pick some really random words and just try this myself just to see what my answers are – I know that still sounds really sad, but I often find it illuminating to discover what is occupying my subconscious…I’d urge you to try it out for yourself.

So one match into the new season in the Scottish Premier League. Has anyone caught your eye? Is there anyone you think is destined to be relegated?

Personally, I hope Rangers will retain the SPL championship, sadly however I don’t think we’ll do it unless we get some major signings in the next couple of weeks. I can’t see anyone other than either Rangers or Celtic winning the league at this point, though someone may sneak in and surprise us all this year!

So I’d like to ask you to give me your predictions the winners of the SPL this season – you can select up to two teams in the poll.

So that’s the winners…but what about the losers? Who do you think will be relegated at the end of this season?

My prediction for relegation is St Mirren simply because there’s be so much change in personnel in their team for this season, and they were very lucky not to be relegated last season.

Good luck to whichever team you are supporting this season!
