    Fuck me, Volleyball and FIELD hockey (do guys even play this?) but no Rugby/Boxing/MMA? Failz.

The Hurling is the fastest ball game in the world, played only by hard men and the skill is ridiculous. Imagine catching a baseball that has been whacked sixty yards in your bare hand (your stongest hand is holding your stick) while jumping at sprinting pace as another man with a stick tries to stop you. The only protection they have is their helmet, there is no sissy armour, nothing to slow the game down. A decade ago you even got goalkeepers who didn't wear the helmet, despite being tasked with defending a huge net with nothing but his body and a stick. No falling on your fat arse and hoping your gigantic shinguards get in the way.

    It is an epic game, and I can't play it at all. All sports have their charms, even soccer is redeemed by the simplicity of the sport and the ease with which it can be played anywhere, but they don't really compare. Basketball is the best of the rest.
    Yeah man, I get to see some GAA and Hurling on Setanta sometimes and it's sooooo crazy. So many different sports integrated into one, and not to mention the crowd is just absolutely insane. Every time.

    My favourite is rugby....The camaraderie, the respect imbedded in the game, the physicality....everything. It's just so fun, you get instantly addicted the first time you play rugby (unless you're a nancy), nothing else has done that for me, not even close.


    edit - I know field hockey is big in the U.K. but it saddens me you are from there and omitted rugby

    They showed rugby on NBC here a while back. I watched it for a bit and it was pretty intense even though I really didn't know what I was looking at (inb4 gay joke).

    Played volleyball in high school and I know some colleges have field hockey teams, and probably some of the bigger high schools.
    Once upon a time.... Pat likes men, and they lived happily ever after. The end.

    Really? I think I remember hearing something about 7s on NBC, but I could be wrong, do you remember if it was 7s? One awesome piece of information I learned today was that if the NFL lockout continues into the Fall, then NBC has the Rugby World Cup games in prime time as a backup plan! This is great news for rugby (if lockout stays :( ) and I'd love for more people, especially North Americans to get to see rugby at it's highest stage.

    Baseball, followed closely by hockey.
    PCs are the epitome of capitalism: elitism, expensive, exclusive.
    Wait, no that belongs to consoles. Ignorant people getting scammed into buying terrible devices that can't even play games in 1080p/60fps

    Enjoy beating us at another sport we don't care about. (I'm assuming we suck.)

    I know, I'm sorry, it slipped my mind. I mean, I was younger then, you know? That's my excuse. I actually love rugby quite a bit (Bath Rugby for the win! - yes that is a team...) so I apologise.

    BMO Field or Rogers Center? I might have to go. I predict a drunken good time.

    BMO Field. And bob, that's not what it's about (sort of). We'd love to kick your asses, but just the fact it's Canada vs America means the atmosphere will be great and the players will be amped. Personally it's a lot better than watching Canada vs England's B team where we get shitkicked. America is actually 2 points behind us in iRB world rankings, at 16th.

    MMA is my favourite to watch. Rugby Union is my favourite to play.
