Auto racing in any form (ie. nascar, indy, formula 1, well except go-karts!) whata waste of energy-gas, rubber, air pollution, etc... this is by far the worst sport on the planet!

"There are only three sports: bullfighting, motor racing, and mountaineering. All the rest are merely games."

Hemingway tells it like it is. Pretty sure I've even seen that one pop up on MP front page before.

Not sure about the lamest sport, there's the purported Hemingway quote, "Auto racing, bull fighting, and mountain climbing are the only real sports ... all others are games." And I'm thinking, as Hemingway was an avid fisherman, Noodling looks like it should be added to the list!

Hiking. I've always thought that hikers have to feel like total betas when talking with climbers.

Spectation and commercialization are lame. Those are all fun games in the right circumstances. The only activity you can actually participate in while remaining completely lame is internet posting.

Can't really complain about professional athletes making that much money. Also that quote about sports distracting the masses doesn't apply either because these are private companies that make all their money from people willing to pay to watch and sponsors. If the government was paying their wages then we could complain about how much money they get and where it could better be spent.

They only make that much money because so many people are willing to pay lots of money to go and see them.

Also ill have to say NASCAR is the lamest.

Tom R, let me clarify, I am proposing Noodling be included right along side auto racing, bull fighting and mountain climbing in the list of real sports, and I'm not so sure about auto racing... in fact let's just say Noodling and Mountain Climbing are the only real sports, everything else is just a game. How's that work fer ya?

What a closed-minded, dickish thread. Hey, I've got one: Who are the dumbest people on the planet?

Nascar is kickass, btw. Next time you see a 45mph turn in the road, try accelerating to 175, and see how much talent it takes to keep your car on the road.

Football? Football is totality fun to play and watch. Athletes are paid fairly in accordance with the amount of money the industry generates.

Now a really lame sport is competitive fishing. I suppose that isn't the case if you are a competitive fisher.

Before moving to a state that is landlocked, I made a carrer of competitive fishing. Anything that puts one face-to-face with thousand pound angry animals hundreds of miles from shoreline isn't lame, if you ask me. Then again...I'm biased.

Here's a 400-pound blue with me on the wire.

The only really lame thing here is people who look down on others for not having the exact same interests and hobbies as them. Anything that takes talent, mental and or physical ability kicks ass.

On second thought this thread was probably a bad idea,forgive me I'm stuck in Florida and am getting tired of no climbing (not that this thread has anything to do with climbing). I also agree with those that say that all sports are valid as long as you enjoy them, very true. Sorry for anything that came across as offensive.
