    The coolest sport.....

    the coolest sport is definitely billiards.

    a few reasons:
    It requires skill.
    you don't have to be terribly inshape to play.
    It takes years to master any aspect of it (i've been playing for like 4 years and i still can't get good english on the cue).
    It requires intelligence to play.
    It requires advanced planning to win.
    Matches can get rather exciting when they're close at the end.
    There are so many games you can play using the same set of balls and table.

    Football, it's physical, fast paced and exciting to watch in the stands or at home....and no I do not mean soccer. Although I like that as well.

    Surfing.

    All that communing with nature stuff. Very good exercise.

    << foot/fut ball/bol hurts... ouchie...

    not really you have pads on!

    Golf definately requires more skill and mental train than billards
    same requirements

    <<It requires skill.
    <<you don't have to be terribly inshape to play.
    <<It takes years to master any aspect of it (i've been playing for <<like 4 years and i still can't get good english on the cue).

    Golf can never be mastered only played!
    need more planning than billards
    and there are infinate ways you can play!
    if a contradiction was contradicted would that contradition contradict the origional crontradiction?

    I would say Biliards and Bowling.

    In what other sports/games can you play while holding a bottle/glass of your favorite (alcoholic) beverage in one hand and make decisions about your next move while holding your stick or ball ... um, I mean cue or bowling-ball.

    "Heavy" sword fighting. Not fencing, but full armor, broad swords (wooden, typically) goin' at it for a title in a tourney. (SCA). Jousting is fun as well. Nothing beat a full out war with hundreds of participants, of course.

    Pill pool, baby! That's where it's at! Every Saturday morning down at the hall. Four, five, six to a game, quarter a pill.
    Now THAT was fun.

    Dancing rocks! (not a sport strictly speaking but you get physical exercise).

    Ba that...

    Squish is the best sport ever! It's a mutilated version of squash that involves four people to a squash court (at least!) and two or more balls.

    Rules: When da ball comes at you. 'it it! HARD!
    (Trying not to crane the person next to you!).
    If the ball gets stuck in the ceiling/on a light etc. that constitutes a point. Requiring a new ball each time of course. One with the most points before we have to leave wins.

    That's great fun! ..and looks pretty funny...
    ...especially when you try to do it in a suit.
