I've been into darts and shooting pool lately, also like the driving range.
Boxing and lifting when I'm seriously looking to work out and I try to hike a few times a month.
 
I enjoy golfing twice a month, helping out at a boxing gym once a week, this weekend I'm in Colorado for white water rafting.

I also play pick up baseball and football games here with other former college athletes.

If you dont sweat it is not an sport. That includes golf
 
Any hunters? I'd consider if you shot wild hogs a sport because of how fucking heavy those things are to carry?

Have a good friend who's going to hunt wild hogs soon with a compound bow arrow. He says he'll have to stay near trees in case he needs to climb up if a pack attacks. They'll eat a person quickly if they catch one.

I play volleyball, best team sport in the world even though football's more popular.

The good walk spoiled is an activity then.
I don't really do sport. I use two-wheel conveyances in recreational ways, I guess. My other exercise is mainly walking between doors and parking lots.

I pull my clubs around, pretty sure you sweat. Sitting in a golf cart isn't challenging - must admit.

I had someone remark that the sports I'm interested in are really all individual sports where I'm simply challenging myself or one opponent. Racquetball, golf, ski, etc. I think the last team sport I played was basketball but as everyone outgrew me in height I no longer participated in any team sports with proper coaches and organizational skills. This probably had an adverse effect on my career and heightened any sense of condescension I might have.

I've resolved to spend an hour or so on the elliptical every week.
 
What is the most unique sport that you've done? I've done fencing and that was really fun, when I was younger I was playing water polo.
 
Is Dizzy Lizzy a sport? I'd forgotten that I briefly played intramural water polo in high school.
 
These days I lift and do sit-ups at home for the excerise. I get to the shooting range about once a month for relaxation.

In my younger days I fenced, kayaked, arched, surfed, swam, rugby, cricket and a little Aussie rules football.
 
Always hated all sport and the weak cowardly bullies, students and particularly teachers, that dominated it at school. Never played. Still don't.
Worked hard on farm and truck when young. Took up boxing as a teenager cos I was sick of sports bullies. So I belted them.

Won many shooting prizes. Gave away guns.

Now cycle on my Surly Long Haul Trucker and lift weights in the shed.
 
Thruth you don't have the giant rolled hay bales up there?

Will have. There is a partial one behind the tractor. Two or three 1600'pounders to come. Use rounds for the big ones with a slow feeder net.

Donks and the ponies get the squares.

The ponies are like piranhas. Have to regulate their eating with the squares. If they had access to rounds they would eat until they exploded

Belligerent gouls run Melbourne school?
 
Basketball and football into my early twenties. Gave up football because anyone who recreationally plays sandlot tackle football past the age of 20 is an idiot. Played flag football into my mid-twenties but it really loses something when you can't hit people. Gave up basketball this past year because I used to be really good and now I'm not and it bothers me. Like I get really depressed.

Do a monster backpacking trip about once a year (doing Yosemite this year). Kayak occasionally. Frisbee golf on Saturday mornings - which I manage to turn into decent exercise - ride my bike to the course, and do five pushups per stroke I lose by. And I suck, so I've done 120 pushups on some weekends. It's still more of a bitch-about-our-wives-and-work fest than anything else.
 
Father's Day charity bike ride with one of the offspring. Father / Daughter bonding. Great day.

I went to schools in rural Victoria. But sports yobs and bullies are the same everywhere. Perhaps worse in country areas. At least in the city some of them can read and they wash regularly.
