I was once a conservative, but now find myself more often than not in between the two extremes of most issues. This blog is dedicated to those who live in the tension critical thought can bring. I am the pastor of Harmony Baptist Church in Morton Valley, Texas, and am currently attending Seminary at the Logsdon Theological Seminary at Hardin-Simmons University.

I realized today that there are very few sports which may actually be considered "outdoor" sports. Granted, there are sports played outdoors, such as tennis, golf or baseball, but these are not truly outdoor sports because they are not played in all weather conditions. To be a truly outdoor sport, it must be playable no matter the weather conditions. Take for example, American Football, soccer (which I don't really care for, but you gotta admit, those people play no matter what), and what may possibly be the toughest sport ever, rugby. These sports are played in any conditions, no matter the weather. Rain? So what, mud makes it fun. Snow? That's what warm clothes are for. Wind? That just makes it more fun to pass/kick/throw. About the only thing that will truly kill these three sports is a chance of electrocution (and then not always) due to a lightning storm.

I am not arguing that baseball, golf, etc. are not true sports, simply that they are not truly outdoor sports.

I'm not sure what this has to due with theology etc, but I haven't posted in a while, so there you go.

Is this etched in stone somewhere?

What a bonehead statement.
