    Great poll, Flashy. I'm not quite sure if you mean "playing" or "watching" or both. I mean, I love to bowl, but you couldn't pay me to watch it.

    I am glad that you included my sport of choice. I guess you know what it is.

    I know damned well that it's mountain climbing.

    From the list I selected Rugby, because that was a cool sportthat I did in high school for a few times.

    But for myself I prefer swimming, gymnastics, volley and rope-skipping, but maybe that isn't a sport for you guys lol

    Baseball, hockey, basketball. In that order.

    I'll probably be adding lacrosse to the list, 'cause my son just joined the LAX team at school.

    Just never got into football (American football) that much. I watch some college games and the Super Bowl, and that's about it.

    i wasn't sure if i should make it playing or watching...i sort of dithered about it...so i just kind of left it, figuring people would post their differences...

    though i definitely agree with you on the "watching" vs "playing" conundrum of some sports.

    I guess i was kind of shooting for a "combo" :smile:

    It's incredible that it's not an Olympics sport.

    Such a sad story. You think about the great careers that have been wrecked as a result of that very thing ........

    Fucking. Loud, boisterous, rowdy, urgent, sweaty, long-strokes-and-hit-bottom-with-everything-you've-got fucking. I love to watch, but I love doing it even more.
