The Most Manly Sport?

Since we’re reading about baseball (among other things), I thought I would take a little survey. What is the most manly sport? Let us know in the comment section and state your case.

One might go with football, because it’s physical and fast–but one could say the same thing about hockey, or rugby. And yes those are real sports.

One could say baseball because it takes discipline and focused strength. But then again you can also be 50 pounds overweight and excel at the game.

One may also be inclined to go the soccer route, arguing that it is played by more men around the world than any other sport. But then again, well, no, I can’t think of an argument against it. That’s my vote for the most manly sport. Soccer.

Disagree? Prove me wrong. You probably think it is figure skating. (but you have to be really strong!)

About Luke

Luke learned to read at the age of two, whereupon he decided, like much of the male population, that it was a chore to be done only when absolutely necessary. Then suddenly at age nineteen, he discovered good books—he has been reading voraciously ever since, earning multiple literature and writing degrees. At any given moment you'll find him reading at least one book, smoking a cigar, up fifty feet in a tree he free-climbed.
