Default Do the band like sports?

It's occured to me that I don't really know this answer other than that Chris likes to have the odd boxing match. I have vague memories of reading how Dave likes ice hockey, and I also for some reason have it in my head that chris supports Arsenal. Anyone know anything for sure?

I know Chris does follow Arsenal - I don't know how much but he's generally a fan. One of the Jackson United t-shirt designs was done in the shape of the old Arsenal crest, and there's been a few mentions as well. He's also been on stage in Cardiff back in 2003 wearing a Welsh national shirt so I think it's a good guess to say he's a football/soccer fan.

I also remember him posting a link to 21st Century Fight Song and likening it to a football chant.

Yeah yeah, now it;s coming back to me. I couldn't remember if there was just speculation he was a fan after that t-shirt came out or if he actually was. Interesting.

i think chris and his boxing link went a bit further when he met joe calzaghe at cardiff a few years back.
Taylor mountain bikes but thats about all for my input.

He actually recorded a football song for the US national team if I remember correctly.

I think the No Way Back video has footage of him ice skating on a hockey rink, so it's possible.
