I realy vote for soccer.

For :
1. Is a great sport.

2. Look this :
"The oldest activity resembling the modern game(Soccer) which is known date of the third and second centuries a. C. These data are based on a manual of exercises corresponding to the Han Dynasty in ancient China. The game was called ts'uh Kuh (cuju), and was to throw a ball with your feet for a small goal."

See in realy there a game near soccer in Kongming age, so the potencial is great.

3.The name i dont have ideas (for now) , but i dont like Kongming's Balls.How about hmm Kongming Kick-off.

Not looking good for American football. It's a vote behind crochet. :lol:

Good sport? Cricket.

Cricket world cup (short one day matches all over is six hours of so.) With the final tomorrow, I think, between India and Sri Lanka, with the Australians, English, Pakistanis, West Indies, and all the lesser teams already sent packing for home. Great game.

Why, I think Dynasty Warrior should be a sport too! When you go to Challenge Mode, there are plenty of competitive games like running from base to base, it's like baseball! Omg... There's rampage, etc too! It is a proper sport, come on!

Bah. Baseball was dreamed up to fill time between innings at Cricket matches. It's nice, but it's over so soon....

I used to listen to the Sox on WBBM but they had that damn Harry Karry, who was always amusing, but I realized that listening to him I never had the slightest idea what was happening on the field. So, I switched over to the Cubs. What happened? They hired Harry Karry, that's what. So I moved. Well, it wasn't because of that exactly, but I did move....It happened that way.

In Florida I could play cricket with the Indians, the Pakistanis, and the West Indians. We even had an Englishman for a while.
