** [[spoiler:Athletics]]: People who like to run, throw and jump.
*** [[spoiler:High jump\pole vault]]: People run toward a lifted bar and try not to bring it down. (alternatively: reverse Limbo)
*** [[spoiler:Long\triple jump]]: People rush toward a sandbox. A misstep can mean a loss.
*** [[spoiler:400+ metres]]: People run in circles on a rubber track.
*** [[spoiler:Throws]]: People hurl deadly weapons into an empty field.
*** [[spoiler:Racewalking]]: People endure an endless SillyWalk.
*** [[spoiler:Marathon Running]]: OlderThanFeudalism, this activity baffles everyone but those who do it. While most people do it when there is no alternative (i.e. there is no TravelCool method available) some do it JustForFun, even though the entire point is elevated heart levels, lactic acid levels so high it can cause cramps in your shoulders, and the near depletion of the body's energy supplies. Some have died doing it. Of course, for those who do it, that IS the fun.



*** Alternately: 12 men run after a leather ball, and in the end, the Germans win.

* [[spoiler:{{Pinball}}]]: A small metal ball zips around a large box made of glass, metal, plastic, and wood, and funny sounds are made when the ball hits certain parts of the box. When new, these boxes can cost as much as a new car despite being about the size of a coffee table. Although these boxes were meant to be used in public, the majority of sales in North America are to people who want one to use all to themselves. Collecting these boxes is SeriousBusiness. For people who own them privately, using them is also Serious Business.
