The SD element is certianly there, Chris, but
originally I thought of this because of arcade
football games I played before, where the regular
human football players were replaced by humanoid
robots with wheels (sort of like MS-06V "Zaku Tank",
but much faster of course). Someone earlier mentioned
in this ML the very possibility of robots performing
human tasks. Now withness the annual robo world cup
soccer match we have each year, so (non-SD)
Gundam-style MS playing sports remain possible. While
it's still a distant dream right now, throwing in a
little SD element for our imagination never hurts,
