    OK, there's a 'sport,' I believe it's popular in France, in which people run around the street or through the park and do tricks, spins and jumps as if they are on a skateboard, but they aren't on a skateboard.
    Does anyone know the name of this activity?

    Nevermind, I got it.
    It's parkour.

    it is called "parkour", according to a show I recently watched*, I think they referred to it as "urban gymnastics".....  
    it's pretty "gay".

    *at 3am in France, programming is limited.

    Since competition goes against the philisophy of parkour, our fantasy league will just draft 'tracers' and that will pretty much be the end of it.
    No games, no season.
