    How can you take these rankings seriously when curling is in the bottom 10! ;)

    What, it should have been in the top ten! :)

    It's fun to watch, but that's about all I can say about it. My favorite Winter Olympic sport.

    I'm surprised a little that Water Polo isn't higher. Not a fan of the sport, and only think about watching during the Olympics, but those guys are tough bastards.

    Not sure I get how martial arts is easier than boxing.

    Boxing is absolutely the hardest.

    I'd put wrestling ahead of hockey.

    I was thinking the same thing, but then remembered that regular martial arts, not MMA, are scored on points and from what I remember of them, have specific time limits. I think boxing gets a leg up because of the the durability it requires because of the length of top level fights.

    I'll second hockey. Shooting a booming slapshot, jumping on and off the ice, punching another guy ... all while balancing on a pair of blades.

    I find it hard to argue with most of that, though I might swap wrestling and basketball.

    Hockey should also receive bonus points for having its fundamental aspect being foreign.

    Most every high school kid can perform the activities necessary to play basic basketball, football or wrestling. Not everyone can skate.

    What about skateboarding? I'm a skateboarding fanboy

    Have to agree. I think I read somewhere that the average player swims 3 miles during a match, and that's tiring enough. I've also heard that the style of play would make Bill Laimbeer blush.
