Real men, real sport

This is a slow time for televised sports here at BestView. When they diluted baseball by putting a major league team in every city without comparable increase in major league quality players, they lost me. Not interested anymore. NBA basketball has evolved into a marathon season with 7 foot players putting the ball into a 10 foot basket---usually after having palmed the ball and taken excessive steps. Not real basketball.
That pretty much leaves me with PGA golf at this time of year, but I ran across a game of Australian rules football while channel surfing the other day and there is a game being played by real men. They dress like soccer players and the game has full contact collisions which are at least as violent as our football. I don't understand the rules, but they score a lot of points some way and the action is compelling.
