On a basketball note my nephew is pretty good. He is like the white Larry Bird.

Getting hit in the face by Ali and remaining standing is not exactly a "skill." Now AVOIDING getting hit by him would be a different story.


I'm pretty sure getting hit in the face by anyone would suck.

I heard long ago that the toughest thing in all of sports is to hit a pitched ball. Don't know so don't fact check me balducci..

Lol. Okay, well, I can find where some people have said that, but I can find no source supporting the claim.

But ESPN ranked the difficulty of 60 sports based on 10 skills. Baseball is most demanding on hand eye coordination, but only ninth overall. Overall, boxing is most difficult.

Curiously, the ESPN list omits cricket, which many claim is more difficult than baseball.

Life is what happens outside while you are busy googling it.

Some people have real experiences that don't involve a computer believe it or not.

My bad. When you invoked my name earlier, I misread and assumed the best of you and thought you were asking me to look something up for you. I was trying to do you a favor. Looking back at your post now, I see I was mistaken, and that you were actually putting me down. Whatever.

FWIW, Danny, I have plenty of life 'outside' as you put it.

Have a great evening.

Put a pair of gloves on a boxer and put him in the ring with a baseball player swinging a bat and
see who walks out of the ring. My money's on the baseball player every time. Smile

But seriously, mentally challenging tough, the baseball player by far is the toughest.
It's not just hand eye coordination, and unlike most sports when it's nonstop action,
the baseball hitter must sit and wait his turn while maintaining the perfect mind set.

Boxing is tough because not only the physical challenges, but mentally. Even if euphoniums Ali int jello and he keeps coming at you it rattled you. Every boxer has a plan till they get hit. Mental toughness comes into play to be certain.

I would not presume to say one over the other. Both are incredible.

I refuse to belive that life exists outside of the computer.
