Are there other Dudely sports other than bowling?
« on: August 26, 2011, 08:02:32 PM »
As we all know, rolling that bowling ball is more than just a relaxing passtime, its a time to reflect on ones way through the cosmos just as the ball rolls towards the pins. Its a sacrament unlike any other, but my question is this: Are there other sporting-esque activities which can enhance ones inner Dude? If so, what are they?

For me, fishing sits nearly as high on the pinnacle of dudeistic spiritual activity as bowling. Throw out some line, park thine ass, white Russians in a thermos, repeat until most excellent. 
We are heading to the spot, but I will keep coming back till we all get there. After all, what's nirvana without my friends?

Well dude...there is always driving around and the occasional acid flashbacks. ;D
Fishing with no bait on the hook sounds pretty damn dudely to me.

Fishing is pretty dudely to me. But so is gardening, and doing laundry. Basically any task that I can enjoy a nice drink and sit out and wait for something to happen without my interference is a good "sport".

Darts is the aerial equivalent of bowling.  It's calm, zen and all about the gentle flow.

Likewise, as 4weed said, billiards is a great example, like its cousins snooker and pool.

Badmington is the gentle, easy-going cousin of tennis.

Croquet is a great lawn sport.   As well as bowls...

Bowls is a great sport, although mostly played by the elderly, it has seen a more youthful following in the last decade.  It's like bowling only you're not trying to knock down pins, you're trying to aim your little ball to sit as close to the "jack" as possible.  Its french cousin is boules, where instead of rolling the platic ball to the jack you toss a metal one, underarm with the same aim.

I myself like tiddlywinks ;D

then there's always "boat ramping", where one sets up a chair, grabs the beverage of choice and watches the drunk assholes try to get their boats and personal water crafts up and down the boat ramp at the local lake or river... particularly amusing when the ramp has a slight curve to it...


also fondly known as "BOAT RAMP FAIL"

tee hee  ;D

Curling is fine for the guy who throws, but there's two guys who have to furiously sweep the path in front of the... err... curly thing.  Too much effort, man :D

 for me it is Kiting. getting on the beach with friends chilling out and flying kites. using the power of the wind to move up and down the beach. can lose hours like this.
then of course to the bar for a couple of beers bliss. ;D ;D
Kite to live, live to kite!
Be at one the wind and let the wind be part of you!!!!

I used to do this regularly.  Take a pole, throw out a line and just sit.  No need for bait, heck or even a hook, it's not the real point of fishing anyways. ;)

I wouldn't say exertion rate would remove a sport from being "dudely"
Take yoga for example, very abide like, yet taking some effort. Its not Football but its physical exertion.
I also feel that Parkour is very Dude, though it takes great strength and endurance, its about adapting and abiding to your environment.
At least that is my opinion.

I love parkour! Spectating only...my old bones couldn't take the punishment....plus I have a great track record at dropping from great heights...never volunteering to do so I hasten to add....that Isaac newton was onto something you know! :)

Peace.
Love is like a butterfly it goes where it pleases and it pleases where it goes. :)

:D Parkour is an amazing part of my life. It changed a lot of out looks I had on life. Your mind uses the same pathways to get through mental obstacles as it does physical. So it really is an eye opening practice.
