and why?

Mine now is Boxing and MMA, I love the discipline, my favourite sportsmen have been fighters, Mike Tyson, Fedor and Cain Velasquez to name a few.

Before I fell in love with the fighting, I was passionate about Rugby League, I played all my life and even played a few pro games.

    I played soccer through since I was 4 through college. I still play in some men's leagues.

    Other than that I would say mountain biking and skiing at the moment

    I gave American Football (sorry I know you don't like that term as much as the English don't like the term soccer haha) but yeah I enjoyed it, the team folded but I would give it another go, very similar to Rugby.

    Baseball
    I grew up playing baseball and softball, still play softball. Also grew up watching the late 80s and early 90s Twins when Kirby and Hrbek played. I am also a stat nerd which baseball is great for. There isn't a better way to spend a nice summer day then in a ball park either playing or watching a game with friends/family.

    I played football, baseball, basketball, tennis and did track at a small HS...I typically like what sport is season and prefer college sports.

    I also played a lot of golf after high school and like it too.

    Taekwondo for the exercise, self defense and PRESSURE POINTS. I don't want to have to exert more energy than I have to when I'm at a disadvantage.

    I rowed competitive crew for a few years, and still sea kayak and canoe whenever possible. I consider snorkeling a sport. I was captain of the Brown University Ultimate Frisbee team from 1976 to 1978. Mostly these days I hike in the Anza-Borrego desert.

    I play soccer, basketball and box, as well.

    As far as "new" sports I'm into for fitness: I love pole dancing, rock climbing and snowboarding.

    ETA: for the "Why"...in High School I played basketball because I was just good at it (Varsity team freshman year)...soccer I got into because it incorporated running, a lot, which I love, and I secretly enjoyed beating the all-Mexican teams because they thought they should win simply because it was "their sport". My family has always sat around watching the fights, so I got into boxing to release aggression and for fitness. Pole dancing works the ENTIRE body and it's fun. I've always liked climbing up trees/rocks/etc...so rock climbing is obvious. Snowboarding...well, I can't surf anymore like I used to...so living in Tahoe, I now snowboard.
