Let’s Get Physical: 10 Guests Who Can Teach You To Play A Sport
A few months ago, I learnt a hard lesson.
In the middle of a casual conversation with my brother, I was sat down, and it was pointed out – very gently – that I seemed to be under the illusion that the phrase was ‘soccer punch’. And not, you know, ‘sucker punch’ (the actual expression).
Actually, it wasn’t put very gently at all. My brother still gets choked up with tears of laughter when it’s brought up.
Lucky for you, there are lots of GoCambio Guests who know one or two things about sports (mainly that you shouldn’t punch people on the soccer pitch). To make things easy, we’ve made a list of the top 10 Guests who can share their sporting skills with you on a cambio. Now – let’s get physical!
