Default Sorry

Hubby doesn't watch "normal" sports - so neither do I. The Triple Crown yes, along with dressage, cutting, steeplechasing or stadium jumping, (which are rarely carried on basic TV) also various sports when the Olympics are on. Since we don't have cable and the digital signal pixels out every couple of minutes we just don't watch much TV.

He also says one way governments have (historically) taken control over the populous is by distracting them with entertainment...such as sports. Many people I know have no knowledge of the Constitution and the Ammendments, yet they can give you stats on 5 teams for each of three different sports for that last ten years. Something to think about!

I voted Now and then in the poll thinking about MMA and self defense type sports ie methods and techniques, however should have voted no, these particular topics, can and should be discussed in the Peparedness board. Therefore, my comment has to be NO, and I would ask that this is taken into account when tallying the votes.
