    The facial expression would differentiate these a bit, cute has something like an "oooh" face along with the sign :) . Looks like you might have been getting some compliments either way.

    Posts from Hell - very close to that sign. It was a deaf girl who signs both ASL and LSQ so it could be a local thing. I'm going to try to find out tomorrow when I go to the softball game.

    Ah hah! I asked and found out that it means two things: cute and sports.

    It look like a person is thinking about something or in doubt. If you go the list of faces and touch it "Hmm" pop up.

    It seems to describe CUTE. I've never seen a sign used for SPORTS. Context would be really helpful. It's like someone asking, "What does 'run' mean?" without context.
