Underrated sports.

Post by VG_Addict » Wed Jan 11, 2017 3:01 pm

We all know of the most popular sports football, baseball and basketball, but what are some sports you like that don't get much love?

My point is that hockey is so underrated that it didn't even make the cut in your original post, despite being one of the 4 major American sports.

(I mean, there's always the Dallas Stars...)

^I used to really like going and seeing the Aeros play before they moved the team from Houston. Minor league hockey is inexpensive fun, man.

Speaking of minor league hockey, I should really go to an Admirals game sometime. I hear they're fun.

The hockey fights are less discouraged at that level, I think. The announcer at one game I attended announced cheerfully that we had our first one a mere 30 seconds in.

we used to have a minor league team in metro detroit. since wings tickets are usually the most expensive tickets in town, we'd always go to the minor league games to watch hockey. it was always a ton of fun even though admittedly i'm not a huge hockey guy

Hard to call it underrated considering worldwide popularity, but I like soccer. Always pull for the German national team. My boss actually used to play for the Bangladesh team.

Strongman competitions are kinda cool to watch. I probably like them more now that I have a favorite dude (Thor Björnsson, natch).

I'd say soccer's definitely underrated stateside, considering most only get behind even the national teams during World Cup and never anytime else.

Also the races, gymnastics and swimming are the hot tickets for the Olympics, but I'm a bigger fan of like... everything else. Handball, water polo and **** DRESSAGE are my faves

I like weird sports idk

Bet your bippy they are. I try to catch at least one game per season (hasn't panned out this year so far, but hey).

Kickball and Volleyball are among the most entertaining sports to play IMO.

I'm not a huge fan of team sports, mostly because I have never really been on a team that was at the same level of ability as myself. Also, when I played baseball as a kid, all of my teammates were cliquish *******.

So anyway, I think Aggressive Inline should be way more appreciated than it is.
I muttered 'light as a board, stiff as a feather' for 2 days straight and now I've ascended, ;aughing at olympus and zeus is crying
