Wow Mac! You have a white picket fence around that Rock you under?

As for the sport, its been artound for a loooooooooong time.. Although it's not something I would seek out personally, but I would choose this over Soccer any day of the week, which I find to be a bore to sit through a 1-0 game. At least with Sepak Takraw, there is something happening on every single serve.

Yea, yea, yea... I live under said rock.

I love to play volleyball and this looks intriguing, if not hard as hell. I'm beyond in years to even think about playing a sport like this, but it does have some amazing acrobatic moves.

When my son played soccer in school, I got interested in international soccer and was amazed how much I enjoyed it. Way more exciting than baseball, or golf or bowling... or fishing. I for the life of me cannot imagine going to watch this, let alone sit and watch it on TV.

I grew up playing Baseball and not to brag, was very good at it. So, coming from a background in the sport, it's easy for me to watch a 22 inning game and not think anything of it. But I get why a lot of people (usually those that have never played baseball) can get bored watching it. I don't hold it against them at all. There is more than meets the eye with the sport. What they say about Baseball, is how I feel about watching Soccer. Other than the occasional pick up game when I was a kid, I never connected with Soccer and it's why I still can't sit through it today.

I'm really good friends with someone that loves Soccer and is trying to get me into the sport. She can try all she wants, it's just not gonna happen. Same with me trying to convert her into a Baseball fan. That too will never happen either.
