Anthropology question

Post  pinhedz on Sun Nov 02, 2014 8:46 am

The pinhed knows nothing about this topic, and if one doesn't ask one doesn't learn. study

How did sports originate? Was it something that guys did when there wasn't a war at the time?

And I wonder about the spectators in the early days. Was it just the families and old soldiers--or were there able-bodied young men watching without participating? scratch

WHEN ANY SOCIETY GATHERS UP ENUFF SURPLUS GRAINS AND MUTTON, THEY START PLAYING GAMES, SOMETIMES THEY ARE RITUALISTIC, SOMETIMES TO PASS TIME

Very good. That looks like a full tribal participation thing, with nobody watching from the couch with a 6-pack of beer and bowl of chips.

But what about this--just a few guys on the field and the rest of them yelling out what they shoulda done from the sidelines?

And what was a top Sumoman's earnings during his peak years?

you're very condescending of other people's leisure activities for one who spends so much time basking in the glow of a brain-damaged singer discovered by Simon Cowell / to say nothing of Sleepy Fucking Hollow

In that case, you posted the wrong pic. You should get your ducks lined up better so you don't go off half-cocked. Razz

That's not true in general. As for pro sports, I'm looking hard for it's positive points, but you just talk about Native Americans (I'm pretty sure they weren't pro), because you evidently can't think of anything good to say about the Redskins.

[btw--Churls like pro sports more than anybody]

I'm sure you will think me condescending for pointing out that you are being condescending, yes?
