One of my wife's best friends is married to one of those "sensitive" guys. He didn't know the difference between a linebacker and a strong safety...
Not quite sure I could pick out all the positions in football either because I don't watch it much but I can tear out a car engine and skin a buck. I can also pick off a squirrel running from 75 yards out with my Ruger 10/22. Does that eliminate me from sissyhood.

Oh yea, but can you put it back??? ;)

Only if the death of the squirrel made you laugh instead of cry.

Neither can I, but I don't particularly care what he thinks ;)

Allow me to point out that in the Native American culture, and many other hunter/gatherer cultures, it was the women who had the job of skinning and preparing carcasses from the hunt.

This bugs me when "sports awareness" is included as a necessary characteristic of real men. I don't watch or keep up with any team sports and I couldn't tell you their positions, although I used to be able to quote all the world record times for middle and long distance running, because I used to run a lot. I also am a watercolor artist. I like reading some poetry and classic literature. I am happily married with two boys and I am a pretty good handyman around the house. I am thinking of starting a club called "real men who don't keep up with team sports".
