    these are the ones I've competed in or taken otherwise seriously.

    football
    ice hockey
    indoor bandy
    rugby
    pole vault
    high jump
    long jump
    hurdles
    triple jump
    snowboarding
    skateboarding
    karate
    orientation
    skiing
    slalom
    ski jump
    table tennis
    speed skating
    (finnish) baseball (it's sort of like baseball, but different)

    I guess that's about it? I've also tried out boxing, basketball, surfing and whatnot, but never really got into them much...

    Pesapalo?

    Mate, that sport looks interesting and more fun than baseball, indeed.

    As for the rest, go Jokerit !!!

    yep, finnish baseball = pesäpallo. the old national game of choice, not so much anymore though...

    wiki on pesäpallo, in case someone wonders about it.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pes%C3%A4pallo

    one big difference to the other baseball is that you run accross the field instead of around it. you can get hit by the ball (which is a bit heavier) pretty badly, and there have been fatalities...

    Mate, I don't see heavy drinking in your list... and it's a national sport.

    a finn listing heavy drinking as a sport is redundant.

    Gah! Look up the definition of sport.

    Now, is it an athletic sport? No.

    I’ve played:
    Baseball and football as a kid
    Raced BMX
    Team Volleyball as a stoned teen
    Skateboard all my life
    Mt. Bike
    Bowling as an adult
    Pingpong
    Chess for near 15 years
