    Gladiator combat in ancient Rome is probably the most badass ever.
    Also that Mayan soccer game where people would get killed and shit.

    I don't think gladiator combat qualifies as a sport. Not unless war does as well. Where the goal is murder, I think we've left the realm of sports.

    The term "gladius," the short sword used by gladiators, meant "penis." The helmets were often shaped like a phallus, and supposedly (I don't remember where I heard this bit) gladiators adopted suggestive titles for their persona. It was all very sexual, and obsessed with fertility and male dominance.

    So essentially, it was professional wrestling. Except they actually killed each other. :I

    IMO, one could make a very convincing argument that it is, indeed, a very manly, badass, and tough bloodsport.

    I've seen pix of guys faces and ears torn to shreds from the cleats. Ian Roberts used to clobber guys (and get clobbered) all the time. Effed up!
