    I'm looking for another hobby to keep me active.
    Any old man sports? I don't want to buy a bunch of equipment or have any travel costs.

    I'm under 50 years old and live in a big city.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    Squash is fun. It's good excercise and you only need a racket, a court, an opponent, and a ball to play it.

    Squash might be too intense for my fat butt.

    Is Bocce ball uncool?

    Lol.

    Depends on how many beers you drink while playing. Of course, that won't get you fit.

    I have a hobby/sport for you, man: stationary bicycle while
    listening to music with big, pro earphones. That way:

    (i) You exercise.
    (ii) You don't have to listen to her.
    (iii) She won't complain because you are exercising and she'll leave you in peace.

    Ta-da!

    Get a dog and take him for walks. You might have to pick up its crap, but at least it won't talk to you.

    Perfect!

    I'll walk the dog with my wife, while listening to my music with pro headphones, while my wife picks up the dog crap.
