Dammit Carl!:
Currently enjoying the "Bare Knuckle," stuff on YouTube - brutal (of course) but takes out the MMA stuff and seems to re-focus on old school boxing but with modern sensibilities; referees step in mighty damn quick and shut any MMA "reactions," down pronto and owing to the newness of the sport, the boxers aren't these polished hype machines so we don't get that McGregor-esque bullshit (so far).  Saw an episode filmed in Omaha, I think, where a lot of Nebraska talent did great, for example.

And am always digging the deep video dives into the classic boxers that are out there.

How 'bout you folks?

Rugby Union of late - world cup is not until next year. Yes it is a proper world cup like soccer is... well not as many countries but a lot. Just watched some recent test matches. Enjoying trying to learn the finer points of the incredibly complex rules of Rugger.

NFL - All set to watch some American Football. I watched some of the draft this year. Have never seen that before. Looking forward to watching some games.

Soccer\Football - Will take some matches in most likely. Although soccer can be kinda pedestian with the diving and passing back and forth.

Ice Hockey - Want to catch some of those games as well. But the season is not here. Have never really watched that.

Also watching some of the bare knuckle stuff. Street Beefs are entertaining because the fighters are very amateur and they tend to be more like backyard brawls. Finally, Russian slap contests are still totally amazing.

Gusington:
Hahaha I didnít think anyone watched the Russian slap contests besides me!

Will have to look that one up; have only seen the highlight stuff where super-tat guy gets his DNA re-arranged by some enormous fellow on the other end of the table.
