How about one full of steroid pumped soon to be or ex felons who wear tight pants and chase balls while their fans pay $50 for a ticket to sit in the cold and more$$$$$ for the opportunity to advertise their favorite team on a sweatshirt.


That's as dumb as it gets.

I think it just edges out those you mention. Sure ice is hard, but lava is hard and sharp.

I disagree with this. The players are actually just taking an advantage of an opportunity. The fans are the dumb ones.

Chess, NASCAR, Ballroom Dancing, Water Ballet, Bridge etc...

Basically, any of the stupid non-athletic BS sports the Olympic committee is trying to unload as legitimate.

Chess is a game of skill, not of athleticism.

NASCAR, hell, a fat guy can drive a car in circles. While I am a Nascar fan, I don't consider it a sport.

Ballroom Dancing...WTF??? It's dancing...what next? Disco??

Bridge? It is a card game. You can be old, fat and drunk and still play. Not a sport.

Forgot to mention any of the X-Games BS on ESPN.

Skateboarding down a hill, jumping off, swinging on a rope into a vat of ground up tires is not a sport. It is what bored kids do when they have nothing better to do.

Got to say that basketball slightly edges out football. But if both completely disappeared right now, it might be months before I noticed.

I can't see how anyone who is athletic could find football, basketball, baseball and sports of that caliber dumb. Perhaps the politics/morality of the players on the professional level, but the sports themselves are fun to play. Sounds like we have a bunch of guys who were last picks in gym class

I agree with many of the NASCAR votes. It looks incredibly stupid and like George Carlin said "Its the same 5 rednecks that win every year anyway)

Its one of those sports that looks boring to watch but must be fun to be in.

Look for Toyota in Nextel NASCAR by 2007... They are already in the Truck series.

Curling. Professional basketball (watch college - that's the real talent). Skateboarding, snowboarding, BMX. Fun to watch, but it's merely a hobby.

Bog Snorkeling



Yes I did say "Bog Snorkeling" It's done not far from where I like. I've never done it or seen it done.
But it makes the News every year and is normaly the daft end item on the local tv news...

Competitors have to complete two lengths of a 60 yard trench cut through the peat bog in the quickest time possible, wearing snorkels and flippers (wet suits optional but advisable) but without using any conventional swimming strokes

Taffy

Compensated professional sports are all pretty dumb.

Do it for the fun of it.

Do it as a demonstration to show it to others to introduce them to it so they can partcipate, okay I see the value of that, but 'professional athletes' should be guys wroking at 7-11 and playing in the basketball court after work.

Puns aside, curling is fun. Anything competitive can be fun. Who can chuck a rock farther is fun done right.

Still while not everything you can compete in is a "sport", defining the difference between sport and game and whatever is for people who don't like to play, and people who don't like to play shouldn't be allowed to interfere with people who do because they make stupid rules like banning fighting in hockey.

That all said, the stupidest "sports" are the new crap people who can't compete in anything established make up just to get on TV. I understand you and your buddies like ground luge and base jumping. It's recreation, but don't try to raise it's legitimacy up there with recognized things and don't claim celebrity from your world champion status in a global field of 4 dweebs who were knocked out in dodgeball class.
