I just posted this in Off Course (oops!).

I love the humor...especially the picture of the guy shooting. Wow...he has a ton of contraptions on his head!

I love the logic. "Can you ride a horse? Me neither."

Hahaha so TRUE!

Tsk, tsk. A lot of hostile commenters there. I wonder how far any of them would get on a *** cross county course.

Thanks for sharing this.

Love how the 'fringe' sports are recognized for their difficulty and skill. And he is right, that boom does come quickly on a sail boat, even the little ones.:yes:

Not anymore hostile than horse people would be if the horse sports had been listed on the easy side.

I do think it is amusing that so many people get their panties bunched about an article that was clearly written to be humorous.

Very funny article! I'm not even going to bother reading the comments because the idiocy of most people who write them will make me unnecessarily grumpy.

I didn't even think to read the comments. Now, Im sorry that I did ! I *almost* replied which would have been fuel for the fire.

Im with trub- Everyone that is as passionate for a sport as most COTHers are well..... I would expect it to get ugly and rightfully so!
