    That's b/c of the fact that those who diss the real version and support the fake American one at the same time are quite frankly ruffians. :p

    Does it have to be a real sport? If not, my fave is dwarf clubbing (its a fest mini game on LOTR online). My fave real sport is baseball, I know I know, I'm boring, but I love it!

    Football, loved all over the world. Creates friendship all over the world, is simple and cheap. All you need is a ball and a couple of legs and you're good to go.

    Whatever I've said before.... Cycling is the greatest sport of all.

    Not only is it conditionally one of - if not the - most demanding sports. The racers simply refuse to stop. Typically, the first reaction of a rider after a fall is climbing up on the bicycle again, to assess damage later, once they have caught up with the group. Now, imagine. That's typically 30 mph / 45kph or more. Normal people get carried of by ambulance. And, once back in the group, the damage might be anything from scrapings and bruisings - but also broken bones of all types. I remember a German rider, who finished a mountain stage with a broken rib. Now, there's no catching your breath in a mountain stage. Normal people would have screamed for their mommies in the hospital. He finished the stage without whining. You don't get that in any other sport.

    And then there's the duelling. In cycling, the best or fastest doesn't always win. It might be the smartest - and sometimes it takes pure luck. But in some instances, the best challenge each other (like yesterday between Schleck and Contador). That's just 100% power of mind and brute force. And a good splash of intimidation. It's nothing short from legendary.

    NASCAR to me is a good sport... u get to see all the nasty crashes that dumb*sses cause other drivers..otherwise i'm not all that into any type of sport except when the MN Vikings play against the Green Bay Packers. (am originally from MN but will Cheer on the packers.) i think the vkings suck a royal big one.

    Cricket is the greatest sport for me. well ! I am a great fan of this sport, never miss a single series to watch . Again I would like to spent my leisure hours to watch cricket match rather than tp spent it at anywhere else.
