    Your favorite obscure sport?

    While at our cf old Chicago get together we watched as some of the TV's had things on like lacrosse, polo, and ping pong. What obscure sports gathers your interest?
    For me it's curling.

    Polo for sure. I got way too much into that, but I thought it was awesome.

    Rugby and Australian Rules Football.

    With all of our sports networks on cable I can't believe these sports don't get better coverage

    Hell even that joke Arena league has better coverage and that is a gimmick sport

    I love Aussie Rules FB! It is fast-paced, and there's a heck of a lot more offensive scoring than soccer or American FB. Used to get this on ESPN3 the past couple of years - but not this year - bummer!


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    Is Lacrosse obscure? If so, then that gets my vote. I feel like it's a kind of hockey I could actually play, because I can't skate for ****.
