No doubt humans have been playing sports since the first time one caveman tried to kick a dinosaur skull past his buddy. It's in our nature to play games and compete and have fun doing it. Some sports never catch on that well which is why the Superbowl isn't threatened by lacrosse. Some sports transcend mere gaming though and become a cultural phenomenon, almost a part of our identity as a society. Just consider how important baseball is to the American identity, or how big soccer is all around the world. For some of us, sport is life! And while you can probably have fun playing any sport from badminton to field hockey there's probably one sport that rises above the others. One sport probably seems like it was made just for you. But which one is it?!?
You may think you know yourself better than anyone but sometimes you need a little help from outside. Sometimes you need to lay your soul bare in a quiz to find out if your dreams of making it in the big leagues are the real deal or if they need to be benched.
