You don't have to take part. Just take some photos of things that get played in your part of the world that don't happen very many other places. Skate-races-along-frozen-dykes sort of thing?

Does 'drink till you puke and you get picked up by the cops and taken home to mommy' or 'vandalise the local bus stops before the cops get here' count?
If not we've always got the Women's Lung Capacity Endurance event, where women try to scream their kids home from 7 streets away (sadly it normally works)

that's all the local sports here! Oh wait, I lie. There's also the Endurance Sprint. (1000 meters carrying a stolen TV pursued by cops and a helicopter)

They're not local! We've got them too. Plus how-many-cats-can-we-nick-for-vivisection.

Weyull (that's "well" in hillbilly), y'all have us 'round here beat all to shucks. All we have is "go down to the barber shop and watch a couple of haircuts", or "drive around late at night and bash mailboxes with blunt instruments" for the younger set. The latter has led to the start of another sport for the older set, yet to be named. It involves filling a decoy mailbox with cement and then hanging out at the nearest emergency room to see who shows up with broken hands, arms, or the occasional head, from the rebound of the blunt instrument.

Hans, here's a hint, local sports even include walking....with partner, child, dog and I've even seen someone walking their cat the other day although I knew someone who used to walk with their cat on their shoulder because the cat hated walking
