    I gave up competitive bench press 3 years I'm pretty lame; slalom ski summer and try to keep in shape in the gym in the winter. Other than that work my can off and chase family.

    Same as 6balls, except my bench press has always sucked due to two surgically repaired shoulders (rotor cuffs). Second sport, seriously? Don't get to devote the time I'd like to to this one and damn sure couldn't afford another one anywhere near what this one requires.

    Cycling (road, mtn, bmx) and telemark skiing, but they all take a big backseat to water skiing.

    I snow ski race, enduro moto race, criterium bike race, mountain bike race... I used to road race motorcycles but that is expensive. HAH I wonder what would happen if I focused on one thing. (probably get bored)

    Is there anything else but skiing ? I was on the water yesterday morning and now it has snowed overnight and I will be on the mountain this morning. If I am not skiing i'm skiing. :) I love Utah.

    If work didnt consume all of my time, I'd be snow sking and mtn biking. Right now I'm lucky to ski every once in a while. I'm happy that I'm this slammed right now though with the economy in the tank.

    I used to play squash and ski in the winter plus play some golf in the summer. Now I go to the gym, play a little hockey and chase my kids around. We still ski some but my kids skate in the winter so it impacts the skiing.

    There can be only one.

    (Actually I really like bass fishing and poker, which are both more "games" than "sports," but I can almost never make time for either of them anyhow!)

    @skidawg, from a commercial beer standpoint, the answer is whatever's in my glass---lots of craft beer and imports.

    From a brewing standpoint, I tend to do a lot of the German styles since what we get in the U.S. from Germany is so oxidized and poorly handled that it tastes little like what would were it fresh. So I do lots of Helles, Pilsner, Hefeweizen, Dunkelweizen, Schwarzbier, Dortmunder, Dunkel and Kolsch. But I also mix things up with some American Pale Ales, West Coast IPAs, American Brown Ales, etc. Next month, I may do a Saison, which would be my first Belgian style. We always have two on tap at the house.

    @Texas6 that I know. I have been rowing competitively for 8 years now. My boat was ranked in top 15 nationally and top 3 regionally in our event for 4 years in High School. Skiing took a back seat to rowing during that time. Its switched now but I still coach high/middle/ and adult rowing daily. I'm always on the water.

    Hockey (although I still suck at it even after 11 years of Senior Ladies House League).

    Trampoline. There is a local club that has adult classes and it's such good exercise and so fun, especially doing the flips!
