    Spectate: http://www.strawpoll.me/14961394

    So with all this pirating we do, we have to get out of the computer chair sometime (some of us at least). So what is your favorite sport to spectate, do, and your favorite team(athlete) in that sport?

    (Please don't pick 72 sports)

    Me personally I don't mess with No contact, limited contact, or high contact. It's all very boring in my opinion now - combat sports - that's what it's about ykwim.
    I do Muay Thai, MMA, and BJJ so a little biased I guess, but it's whatever.

    My favorite athletes in each:
    Muay Thai - Buakaw Banchamek (Of course.)
    MMA - Max "Blessed" Holloway (The rat lookin' dude)
    BJJ - Ok, so bjj has only gotten one multinational tv show "CJJW 1" - So of course the only option Eddie "Flat-Earth" Bravo

    I like GLOW and mud wrestling. Since you're into contact sports.

    I think bowling is a sport and that most people consider it so. The dictionary says it is any athletic activity that requires skill and often is of a competitive nature. Sounds like bowling to me, unlike poker that has apparently become a sport even though it lacks the most important quality of being an athletic activity.

    For spectator sports I like basketball. My favorite player of the past is Kareem Abdul Jabber and currently I really like Steph Curry. For personal activity and enjoyment I like mountaineering. The climber I admire most from afar is George Lowe, he did things that were amazing and never bragged or got killed by getting in over his head.
