    Gee SissyBoyFloyd---I'll get the ball rolling on your survey.

    Participate in Weight lifting and martial arts. If I ever go crazy enough for them to haul me into a Nursing Home---they best not try to give me an enema unless I ask for it.

    I'll watch the outdoor fishing shows. I enjoy the excitement guys get when they land a $2 fish while sitting in a $5000+ bass boat/rig/motor.

    Cycling. The commentators are great and have vast knowledge of the small towns and historic landmarks the cyclists pass through. Zero politics involved. Once you learn the strategies of the cycling teams and how each team is comprised it is impressive. Or I am just a geek. Or both.

    It’s Billards/pool. I have a pool table in my house and my wife isn’t allowed to play.

    Are you sure it’s no fun playing by yourself... the hell it isn’t.


    And to watch I second Women’s Beach Volleyball

    I will argue with anyone about the Challenge on MTV. I think it is America's 5th major sport.

    You guys need to give rugby a chance. I would recommend Gloucester Rugby. One of the traditional English top flight clubs, with a passionate fan base, who play attacking exciting rugby and who are known as the Cherry and Whites as they play in red... just like our Red Sea.

    Cornhole?

    I watched rugby when traveling to Scotland, All Black's were really good then.

    Darts on TV in Canada. Chuck wagon racing is the bomb.

    The only thing worse than cricket is the cricket post game show.

    I love watching cycling. Also dig the ITU Triathlon coverage on NBC sports. (Not the commercialized Kona Ironman coverage that gets shown every year).

    I've done a few triathlons myself, as a back of the pack participant. My 13 y/o daughter is into it as well, but unlike me, she is amazing.

    Go Cards!!!

    I got you on the Rubgy. Still has a lot of rules, don't understand them all but it is a great watch. I found a team to watch in England, the Exeter Chiefs. First year watching them and they win the title and the European title this year, lol.

    I love to bowl but haven't done so in years. I consider myself pretty good. When I was playing pretty regularly, if I didn't bowl at least one 200+ game I got angry with myself. Best game is a 269.

    Cricket isn't half bad. A bit boring but there are some athletes playing cricket.

    The All Blacks All or Nothing on Prime video is a good watch.

    Darts on TV is pretty funny to watch. Watching the English announcers scream one hundred and eighty is hilarious.

    Nice! I love watching and racing triathlons. Every year I race IM Arizona IMAZ 70.3 and 4 or 5 smaller local races. My daughter is also 13 and races the Deuces Wild in Show Low with me every year and also a local sprint occasionally.

    Surprised running is not on the list. I love watching track races. Mens/womens 100m-10k. I'm glued to the tv anytime a track race is on.
