    I barely know the basic rules for football, which is more than I can say for my older brother. My family has never cared that much about watching sports. There needs to be a sport that involves picking on atheists who couldn't argue their way out of a paper bag.

    Hmm... I didn't have a very good time in grade school, and it extended in high school. By that time I plain didn't care what others thought of me. I was determined to do what I wanted to do, and the heck with anyone else. Looking back, that's been both good and bad.

    Anyhow, no, not really. I don't really hang out with anyone anymore; if I did, I would just avoid those who do things I don't like. Right now my life revolves around eat sleep work and family. No room for "manly" stuff.

    A while ago I came across a men's blog; I read a few articles, then thought about what it meant to be a man. Since that was basically the point of the blog, helping men be men. I decided that I was a man simply because I was one. Lousy description, since it fails to describe how I became one: but in terms of living in the here and now, and future, it was sufficent. I don't need to learn how to shave like a man, or watch sports like a man, or drink like a man, or abstain like a man, or ___. I'm a man, therefore, what I do is... manly. Nothing I do makes me manly; the converse does not work.

    Going to work and providing for your family sounds like a manly thing to me.

    The only sports I could get into were Braves baseball and sometimes when I was in Charlotte I'd go bowling with friends. I could play touch football some in Elementary School, but I didn't care after that. I didn't even watch the Super Bowl last night. If I do, I read a book during the game and watch during the commercials. I also don't care for racing nor would I care for much in the great outdoors like hunting or fishing.

    On the other hand, I don't mind playing fighting games with friends on a console and beating their brains out.

    I never liked "traditional" sports, like football or basketball. I do like weird geek sports like robot fighting though.

    I used to turn on basketball games at night to help me go to sleep.

    I like baseball and basketball so I suppose that puts me in the minority here.
