    Lies!
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    You guys remember the IFL, or what I've been seeing now - the World Series of Boxing. Quite a way to put a team concept there.

    After much deliberation, I'm going to give you some credit here. Lacrosse followed by rugby. I place martial arts in the category with Olympics and Highlander games...which are cool. I like the exhibition aspect of these events.

    Yep.

    football??: More people suffer serious injuries and even die from organized football from PeeWee through the pros than from accidents with guns. This from the CDC. Professional football players have an average life span in the mid fifties. How can something that ruins and destroys life be considered good?

    Also, football is a combat based sport if there ever was one.

    My vote is for full contact, deep water, synchronized swimming style volley ball with no posted rules.

    I am trying something new. I recently bought two kettlebells and I work out with them about 20 minutes a day in competition with my cousin who lives nearby. So far, all events ended in a tie. zero- zero.

    We are trying to move them across my yard by telekinesis. Sometimes we actually sweat. Thank goodness my wife is nearby to help us to stay hydrated.

    So why are individual sports not sports?
    I'm confused.

    To me, the ultimate has always been motocross.

    It's hard cardio, an individual sport, the best riders really stand out, and it's not a concussion contest. People who make it to the top and stay there are remarkable athletes. Plus, there is nothing in sport like nailing a 90-ft tabletop, turning around, and doing it again. (I guess there are a lot of other fun things like skydiving and jumping on skis, but moto is a better workout!)

    I spent 10 years following the pros as a photojournalist and had a blast.

    Forgive me if I don't take the opinion of someone who clearly has no concept of what a sport is. I coach MMA athletes and I can assure you that the skill, strength, power, speed, agility, technique and tactics required to compete at a high level certainly classify it as a sport.

    Your comments regarding fighting are just plain ignorant.
