    Reading some of the threads got me thinking, which is the best sport ?

    I think they could be split into different areas and I would vote for

    Best team

    Football, not soccccaaarrreeeerrrr my american friends

    Best ball

    Rugby, because they are just a bunch if "hard nuts" and everyone loves Johnny (and not talking about Condoms here..... ; )

    Best solo

    Rock climbing, completely fearless folks

    Best Racket

    Squash / Tennis, not sure, so have to do a Lemar (thats 50 / 50 as in the song)

    Best Bat

    Cricket baby, espcially the 20 / 20 game

    Best all over

    Cricket, any India V Pakistan game

    Best sport for cheats

    Tour De France - cycling... ; )...and you know it

    What are your thoughts ?

    Who cares what others call it. Do you not understand the term "soccer"? Would you tell a German that he's wrong when he calls it Fussball?

    In Ireland, we have our own indigenous Football, so we call soccer soccer and Gaelic Football football.

    And in Ireland, it is soccer, the gaelic is "sacar".

    Telling an Irish man that he is wrong to call soccer soccer is like telling a German that calling it Fussball is wrong. "IT'S FOOTBALL!"

    It is strange. Like, I'm sure you wouldn't be upset if I referred to your sport as "stickball".
