Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

That'd be Pokemon Battling.

Nerd out.

No. The best by far is Guyball. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYeCUT7jNkM

And, of course, Nemesis, Muff, Bumhole. :-D

I can't believe Quidditch is winning over Pokemon. :/

Not really fictional but the sport of "Football-Basketball-Soccer" is by far superior.

Think of it as full contact basketball, on a grass field (only one hoop, and it lowered to about 7' or as low as possible without anyone hitting their head on it) with numerous 1 person teams. Played with a soccer ball.

Basically anything but striking, is allowed, including the hand through the hoop goal tending!

It was a common sport in my childhood, as we had a basketball hoop in our back yard, in the middle of grass. It didn't really allow for regular basketball to be played.

And yes, everyone who does not know what Calvinball is needs to buy/borrow every Calvin and Hobbes comic book they can get their hands on and immerse themselves in a fantastically clever comic series.

Except Quidditch isn't fictional. There is a collegiage club league on the US east coast. I've seen them.

If Global Thermo nuclear War had been an option, that would have been my choice. CALVINBALL however, is way better than any of the other options, definitely!

Exactly! I'm glad that somebody else feels the same. That would be AWESOME!!

I think so many people are voting quidditch just because more people have heard of it...

Wait. Book Running Man or movie Running Man? The book one is a lot better, but not much of a spectator sport.

Chess Boxing sounds like a variation on Battle Chess. Good stuff there!

I'm surprised no one mentioned The Kobayashi Maru.

Calvinball obviously won, but winning was subsequently redefined and it had to start over with the new ruleset... 469 times. :-P
