American Football is AWESOME! How many other sports let you ram each other without penalties, save for (possibly) hockey.

Wow, I'm not impressed.

What's the difference between it and a fighting sport besides the number of players and the existence of a ball? Seriously, I would go for jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai or tae kwon do any time if I wanted to takedown people.

I like Baseball the most. Not much of a Football (American) kind of guy, I guess.

Go ANGELS!

I'm a baseball kind of guy. I sometimes play it, and I sometimes play Basketball (due to me being tall for my age, I find it quite easy to play it :P)

I used to play futbol (soccer), but I grew out of it (read: I'm too lazy).

Downhill skiing (I like speeding down the slopes) and equine sports (done a lot of show jumping and cross-country). Tennis can be fun too (at least when I got to win (j/k)).

Hockey and soccer (the real "football" or "fútbol" for me) are fun to watch with friends. Don't try to take me to a baseball game though...or at least I should be warned in advance so that I can bring a good book to read

Also, basketball, a lot of fun indeed {especially when you're about one foot taller than everyone else, hee hee hee} and any type of martial arts a close second {the sparring is always fun...at least in my opinion, the other person may not be able to say the same...}

American Football, by far. Great team sport. Fun to play, builds strong bonds with your fellow players, and helps to develop a sense of "team," and leadership.

Fencing is an awesome sport, I fence saber & sometimes fence foil. But my family has contributed to the sport of football (soccer) in (classified state) . Furthermore my grandpa is in The National Soccer Hall of Fame.

Weightlifting, cardio, and stuff involving swords. OR going out in the woods with buddies and having our annual "get it off your chest" tournament...if not the usual guild meetings.

I have done more traditional rugby. It's a bit precarious and often degenerates into brawls and melee. Traditional rugby has no rules except get the ball into the other net by any means possible short of death.

It's not as fun as it sounds. Everyone tries to kick you in the nutz. Or bite you.

HAHAHAHAHAAAA! Yes that's right.

Well, actually, I liked going to hockey games here and there.

Once I even considered doing it. Problem is they brawl, but I take attacks as a potentially life-threatening situation nowadays and act accordingly. It would not end well. Funny how life is: I initially got into watching it for the reason of the "tough guys" fighting. There are a few other reasons but we'll leave this at what it is.

Though that isn't to say I don't occasionally enjoy a friendly game of street hockey with a furby or some odd object of junk. Or street baseball of similar stature.

I use to play racquetball with my brother. It is way better than tennis, but will never touch ping-pong.

Lacrosse! if anyone else even knows what it is, its the old native american war game - think as fast as soccer (football), hitting like hockey, basketball-like plays and movement. just pure awesome.
