    Geez, I forgot plain ordinary flying.

    So Simple. :rolleyes:

    It would have included ballooning too.

    I'll come out right now and say I have never flown in any planes except for passenger jets.

    Really.

    But I do like model planes, something tangible to have around.

    You didn't mention whether you mean watching or participating. That
    does make a difference. And, Tim.. I do not consider American Football
    a sport. It's a very big business.

    Charles, very true, it is a big business. But that is only at the higher levels (college, Pro, maybe some high school). For the most part, for most that play it, it is a sport.

    The level of it's success as a business is a testament to the business abilities of those that promote it and the viability as a sport. The fact that a ton of money is made from it, should not depreciate the sport itself.

    IMHO

    IMHO as soon as a "sport" involves a pro athlete is becomes a business as opposed to a true sport. Granted these pro athletes are very gifted, but I'm afraid the emphasis is on glamour and profits.

    Never really thought of NFL Football that way. The people in the NFL were probably good amateurs once, who then decided to play football for money. The NFL players got to be good sportsmen too, not just good business men.

    Bill Gates couldn't have done what David Tyree did! That took some good athletics!

    Hunting - primarily birds now but Africa and Alaska experience way up there.

    I played football for scholarship but live bird shooting is where I gravitated after a lot of years shooting International Skeet and Trap.

    Columbaire pigions will be decided in 10 bird race 95% of the time.

    Box birds in Spain, Portugal, Andolusioa, Mexico and US is where the money is.

    Cowboys, Detroit Red Wings and New York baseball Giants when May was playing - Zurinov and Petrov for beaking the first 200x200 in International skeet and Matt Dryke for making it look easy.

    cchesse, I meant "Flying" as flying a plane yourself, but of course seeing other people fly planes is pretty cool. You can sit back and relax then........

    My favourite sport to play has to be basketball. But I love watching Ice Hockey (although I don't get to watch it much anymore). It's San Antonio Spurs 'n Red Wings for me. I don't really follow either anymore... :(

    My post about watching or participating was not directed to your post
    about flying. It was directed at the meaning of the sports poll.

    Does raising your beer mug all the time count as a sport. You know, you'll exercise your biceps if the mug is big enough. You'll have to start with 0.5 litres. :)
