So as anybody that knows me can tell ya: I'm not a big sports guy. I don't get excited about football, basketball, baseball (possibly the most boring sport in the universe). But I do like going to hockey games. Why? Because every now and then you get to see guys beat the snot out of each other (the same reason I like watching the UFC and things like that). There is just something great about watching guys fight, especially if there isn't a lot of skill involved, but tons of emotion.
I think I would feel at home in the stands of the Colosseum during gladiatorial times!
