RE: Favourite Sport?!?
Playing or watching?

Playing (if you can all it that) - horseback riding by a looooong shot. Biking's great, too. Is shooting (target practice) a sport? If yes, then shooting, as well (and leaving the used target sheets on my boss's desk when he pisses me off... well, back when I still had a boss). Would love to go rowing if I lived near a lake or something.

Watching - athletics, esp. javelin and pole vaulting.

RE: Favourite Sport?!?
I am not really a sporty type of person. My absolute favourite sport to watch is Sumo. Love it. Love the technique, love the theatrics and ceremony, and of course, my favourite wrestler - Baruto.

As for playing, I just recently started playing Frisbee Golf with some guys from work. I've been having a lot of fun with that.

RE: Favourite Sport?!?
I love Australian Rules Football (footy). I've been watching since the final of 2005 (go Swannies!) and I learned the game fairly quickly mostly just by watching it. I'm an American living in America so I have to go out of my way to get to see it. I grew up watching American football and ice hockey, and I still like those too, though I'm not really that into hockey any more.

Footy is unlike any other sport I've ever watched. A game played on an oval double the size of a (American) football field, with players wearing no padding or helmets, played as non-stop as possible at the speed of hockey that still has lots of collisions and leaping for the ball and running and kicking... I love it. After the footy season is over and I start watching American football again, sometimes I get annoyed with how slowly it goes. And they drop the football on the ground and leave it there! Scoop that up and -- oh, wait. Smile Footy has no such thing as a 'dead ball'.

But now I'm watching the NFL again and I'm used to it again already -- footy season only ended a month ago.

Oh, that IS the best surfing video ever! *swoon* I've long wanted to learn to surf. I have this fear of drowning though...Weeping

I am not quite sure what I am, just not religious, at all. But, I like being on a forum with smart, non-religious people. Very interesting material.
