They must have used a dart board for selection process.

Don't worry golfers Bull riding was ranked lower than badminten too.

I would have ranked hockey higher than boxing. Lets see those heaveyweights duke it out on skates. Haaaaa

Hey you golfers, you rank BELOW badminton players.[/b]
But golf is still right above Cheerleading...for now.

There are so many things wrong with that, I dont know where to start.

The first should be a FAN at an English soccer match.

Baseketball at 4???? Are they high? Not the players, we already know that-

Tennis? Because one chick got stabbed 15 years ago?

Auto Racing is behind Badmiton? Oh, I forgot how many Badmiton players we have tragically lost in the field of battle. Those beautifully cut lawns and 8 ft nets would eat up the Intimidator.

They didnt list Lawn Jarts for the Blind either. Thats a doosey.

foulshot, I'm with you! BEEN THERE, DONE THAT! You can't put a list like this out if you have never done it! I would love to see one of these writers give up the soft seat behind the computer for a seat on a ton of hell!

Get real!

I cracked 2 ribs playing hockey. Most painful injury I ever had.

But the grass burn I got playing badmiton was pretty good.

And then all the jammed fingers and the good ole elbow to the nose while crashing the boards playing B Ball
wasn't pleasant at all.

I was a small point guard.

Playing Street Football.
I ran into a stop sign. (Yes you do see stars)

Fell off a skateboard backwards. I was out for a while there.

Cracked my tailbone doing the same. Couldn't walk for 2 days.

I think I tried boxing but I can't remember.

Took a fast ball on the hip in College.
I didn't rush the mound because the pitcher was 6 foot 5 and outweighed me by 100 pounds.

Tried Golf. The ball bounced off a tree and hit me in the back.

And then there was kick ball.
I remember falling to me knees in severe pain.

Took a line drive in the face playing short stop.

I asked to be moved to right field.

Tried to ride a pig.
How the human body can be shot through the tiny gap between 2 fence boards is beyond me.

Whats tough about bull riding? I will say it takes a lot more nerve than athletic ability. Only sport I know where men wear tight jeans and big belt buckles. Most be a tradtion thing.

We could say that about people trying to hit/catch a ball, or trying to run/swim/bike till you collapse, or riding a bull....LOL anyway, I say MMA not WWF LOL

Stuff like this makes no sense...unless that's the point. Maybe it's the "More people will share the article if it sounds retarded" marketing campaign.

And Hey! Who says Fishing offers the lowest degree of difficulty?

softball tougher than soccer?!? I'm not a soccer fan, but 2 hours of running full blast has to count for something. Steer wrestling, in the top 15? And tops the rodeo field?!? Any goof can jump off his horse, takes a little more skill staying on something trying to get you off. This list obviously is'nt rating these all physical demand.
