Hello suncat mate, I really can understand raidens response to the football (which IS the right name for it - american 'football' doesn't use nearly enough of the feet to justify the name lol) as a lot of us get exhausted just watching it. For one who has no social interaction energy at all once a days work has been completed, it feels great to hear of one who can still enjoy the beautiful game. Sadly my only joy left in life once the g/f gave up on me and total alcohol intollerance is the crafty fag now and then (sorry smoke/cigarette for the americans among us) It does my heart good to hear you're blessed in that way. Good on you mate!
Now - to answer your origional question - yes, i also have found i sweat like a glass blowers a**e at the slightest exertion. i Think it is to be expected and just keep the lynx to hand afterwards (i even keep one in the car)
You take good care mate and may this terrible affliction of ours never stop you from playing. God Bless mate Tree
