Do those strongman competitions count? I think there a lot of guys over 40 still doing it. Even if they are ran by steriods lol.

Clearly I haven't read nearly enough mens' publications, and being behind enemy lines is apparently not providing me with sufficient information on important topics like this.
Just think of what a krispy kreme donut looks like with all of that wonderful frosting that covers it. You should probably get it now..

Frosting is wonderful, but now I don't think I can ever eat a donut again.

This seems kind of ironic. MMA fans often discuss how MMA is so technical, and that technique is greater than strength or athleticism but athleticism supplements those skills, but apparently that same arguement is forgotten for sports like Baseball and Golf. Each is a sport based heavily on technique but as top players such as Arod and Woods have shown, athleticism makes you much more competitive.

It's an insult to say golf and baseball aren't sports, and really, makes one sound like an idiot.

i agree with you here, to say golf and baseball etc arnt sports is kinda stupid, people in those sports train just as hard as MMA fighters do for there sport, it may not be as physicaly draining as MMA training is but its still ahrd training for there sport.

NASCAR is still not a sport though lol

Yeah, I'm mixed on Nascar, the reaction time a nascar driver has is rather exceptional but the sport is to reliant on "equipment" for me to feel comfortable calling it a sport. I kind of want to call it a sport though

How about f*cking Laird Hamilton
Damn I can't rep you right now. I wasn't expecting anyone to drop that name but that dude is such a beast.

I consider golf and baseball a sport but no f#cking way on NASCAR. The drivers are skilled but not athletes, besides an athlete might actually demand to make a right turn instead of only lefts.
