Discussion in 'Sports' started by theflame, May 19, 2020.
Football cricket tennis and snooker
Curling and cricket. Oh! and does boules count?
Like most sports except ice skating darts tennis and a few other sports
I was recently discussing ludicrous sports with a friend, specifically those featured at the Olympic Games, which we considered to be painful viewing, and ultimately, a complete waste of time and television.
Tae Kwando and judo were the first that we jointly agreed on, along with shooting and archery.
Curling was nominated also even though it is risibly considered a winter 'sport'. We likened it to bowling on ice with Horlicks, or other suitable nightcap.
It worries me when people consider what are basically sedentary pastimes to be viewed as sports.
In that regard, arm wrestling ideally combines the two.
so what do you like?
MEGS i said most sports except a few i put on above
you shouting my name again tut.
My dad used to ask me to play old boxing videos on the internet. We would watch the classics like Ali v Foreman, Tyson v Spinks, Ali v Fraiser and he really enjoyed Micky Ward.
And you're not old! If it's any consolation, you're younger than my mum lol.
Cesar Julio Chavez v Oscar Dela Hoya - Hell of a fight
I'll be sure to check that one out. There's quite a few fights i haven't seen. Thank you for the recommendation.
I used to love watching Ricky Hatton
He was all heart man and he threw those gut punches from the floor ,
When they landed , you were done.
I remember me and my dad watching the Froch v Groves series. I thought they were entertaining matches.
Yes i agree , they were so evenly matched it was always entertaining ....
Ali v Spinks classic , remember watching it live on tv
