In my opinion, the US's favorite sport is American football.  Baseball may have been America's pastime in 1920, but not anymore.  I'm not really sure why football is so popular.  I suppose the physical aspect to the game and the strategy is interesting to people.  I'm not a football fan; I watch the Super Bowl, but that's it.  I'm a big ice hockey fan, and I'm not used to all the stoppages in football.  There is so much down time between plays, and I tend to kind of zone out and then by the time I'm keyed back in the play is already over.           
I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.

I spent most of the day yesterday shooting.  My shoulder has a nice ache today that reminds me of all the fun I had yesterday...

Have you tried archery? I do both.

Way less expensive and you can talk to your buddies as you are doing it. I belong to a 500 family club that has a 20 acre range with trails and 3D targets, etc.

We even have a foam disc target thrower - like trap shooting with flu flu arrows that do not travel far. The entire line shoots simultaneously. It is a blast to watch.

>Have you tried archery? I do both.

I have.  I like it.  I need to buy me a long bow or better, a reflex deflex Howard Hill bow... I haven't seen my bow in a while and I don't care for it that much anymore.

>Way less expensive...

Probably not "way less" since I reload and cast bullets.   Loading .38s I figure I have about a penny a round in them.  I get buckets of wheel weights usually for free but at most the price of scrap lead.

>...and you can talk to your buddies as you are doing it.

We talk.  Loudly, of course...
