Gaelic football.  Well, so I have come to think after watching it while in Ireland.

Looks like a fun combination of American football, soccer, and rugby. I think I'd enjoy watching a game or two.

And then there is the unbridled bloody carnage of Australian Rule Football which has, (wait for it), NO RULES!

I'm still a baseball kinda guy, though!

Aussie rules is an adaptation from Gaelic football.  The ball is oval, the grounds used were mostly ones used in summer for the greatest game of all - cricket - and thus the game is played on oval grounds approx 200 yards x 150.

As I said, cricket is the best sport...

I have enjoyed playing both baseball and the one time at cricket (when in India).  But, for me, honestly, neither is fast pace enough, at least as far as imply watching.

Or watching in person - televised, for me it is easier.


Boxing is another sport not sure I could spend much time with - but, in our trip to Ireland last fall, one of the reason for going was to see Andy Lee (unfortunately, it got moved and delayed and we missed it).
