I just wondered what different types of sports you guys are into ? I know what some of you do but for most of you guys, I wouldn't know smile.gif

I've really started getting into boxing.. wouldn't be surprised if I'm the only one here into it wink.gif

I played Rugby competitvely till about 2 years ago when I smashed my collar bone into 4 pieces. I've done a bit of boxing training as well just for fitness, actually had a few training sessions with the rugby team there and at the end we got to spar with each other, laugh.gif that was fun seeing the guys try their best to knock each other out. Two rounds of swinging like maniacs there wasn't much boxing going on but there were a few good shots landed, and a couple of knockdowns.
As for watching sport the two previous mentioned ones and a little UFC and American Football.

Watching TV Series biggrin.gif watched around 50 so far, also trying to get 'Watching TV Series' to the Olympics, wish me good luck! cool.gif

But seriously.. It is a hard sport since if you lay on the same side in your couch for like 8 hours, your back starts to hurt.. Take that olympic weightlifters! tongue.gif

Weight lifting and functional training - as a complementary activity for my Ken/ Batto Jutsu training biggrin.gif

Other than that, dunno, I guess I'd like to fly with as less equipment as possible - free base jumping?

None.

I enjoy going to the gym but don't regard that as sport, just personal progression (with a side helping of vanity).

I quite like watching skateboarding stuff from time to time.

Nope Ben, unfortunately here are no snowy mountains in the area where I live, so I can't go skiing whenever I would like to. I started skiing when I was 3 years old, back then m parents and me went to do skiing vacations every year, I just love it.

Since you asked, American major college football and basketball, and American Pro football. Not much interest in anything else.

Generally I have a distaste for professional sports, at least what they have become in this modern age. But American Pro Football gets a pass in my book. For one thing it is just such a neat sport, so much goes on in that sport. But they also maintain parity in the teams, they don't allow the huge cities to get all the good players by outbidding the smaller cities. And I like the fact that they don't draft players into league until after 3 years of college.
