    The funny thing is that both of my girls play volleyball, my oldest climbs rocks, and my youngest loves to watch basketball.

    I can't speak much--wife has me taken ballet classes.

    I do like working on cars, but have given up all hope as to "fun" cars. Too expensive. All about cost. Which is kinda of another number: instead of looking for best 0-60 time, or quarter mile, or what have you, all about cost per mile. It's sorta the same, a numbers game... sorta. Sports, eh, it's not fun if you're not playing. Too boring to watch.

    I fear my son won't be into guy stuff. I've (jokingly) offered to let him drive the car (or truck). No interest. I think he's scared. Then again. He has muscular dystrophy. :( In some ways I don't want him to get into stuff that he can't do when he's older. Bad of me I know. But as long as he is under my roof I'll always be looking out for his best interests.

    I'm afraid I have no interests in his interests. Minecraft and the like. I guess it's a generational gap.

    My son is not "into" sports or cars. He takes after his dad in those things.

    I never liked sports much, but I did like cars. Still do. Not fixing them, just appreciating them. Probably the geek in me. The more high-tech the car the better.

    I love cars for getting places. Beats walking.

    I wouldn't call myself typical.
    I don't care much for cars or football and the like. I do enjoy camping. I like reading. History is pretty cool and I do kind of want to join the S.C.A.
    I suppose everyone has things they find fascinating that others can't wrap their heads around.

    As a youngster, I was only interested in playing baseball and soccer. Never found much need to sit for hours watching others play, and only if I could watch it live in person, not on TV.

    As for cars, I enjoyed working on cars out of necessity, cause I never had money to pay mechanics. As I got older and was in a better financial position, I decided that rebuilding engines and repairing automobiles was something I could pay others to do.

    I would not be the least bit worried or concerned if my son (I have two daughters) was not interested in sports or cars.

    Is he "into" bacon?

    I guess I am not your typical guy. I mean does the "typical guy" keep bees?
