What are some "Manly" things we actually DONT like? 

1. That instinct to size each other up in one way or the other upon first meeting. 

2. After 30 years of age, my ears and nose need haircuts, but my head has less and less hair.

3. Football, basketball, baseball. 

4. Their parents get uncomfortable when I start goofing around with the little kid in front of me in line at the grocery store. 

5. The way younger/smaller/weaker/beta Men try to feign stoic indifference when we accidentally make eye contact. 

6. The occasional young Lady who is so attractive that it is almost uncomfortable to be near her. 

7. How pervasive the urge is to check out every single Lady I see. 

8. My doctor has some strange fascination with sticking a camera up my butt.

The fact that I'll probably never be able to grow a full beard.

you're not the only one!

#8 tops all the others!

Daniel:  what about Rogaine?  I'm serious -- I think!

Manly things I hate:  can't really think of any.  I love being a man.  No, I got something.  Went with my wife to a do for her friends and their husbands.  The husbands got a living room with a football game on.  As a result, I had almost no conversation all evening.  Next year I'll stay home w/ the kids.

Don't they issue grave warnings to only use it on your head?  And besides that, it's insanely expensive, and I'm a poor student.  However, I might reconsider if nothing develops after a few years.

I don't know about safety.  I believe there's generic Rogaine.

Well, I'll just have to wait and see.  I'm only 19, so I've a few years before I hit my full hairiness, right?

Holy cow, yes. When I was 19 I couldn't grow a beard either. Now I'm 24 and shaving is such a pain in the ass I just let it go for weeks at a time. It'll come, don't worry.

I was in my 30's and still didn't have to shave everyday. I am 34 and now have a full beard.

Quite right. There seem to be a lot of men out there who can only talk sports, and simply HAVE to watch a game if it's on. I found myself playing taxi for first-year students this summer, and once I got a van full of young men (all strangers to one-another. They instantly took up a conversation about which player was being transferred where, why, and for how much. When I announced I had no idea about who they were talking and all that, they were actually shocked. They just couldn't imagine I didn't have an interest in it. 

Parties where there is hardly any social interaction because of a TV being on is a real bummer, and can hardly be called a party.  

I like sports.  Football is a genetic trait in Texas.  But, I'll admit that I'm not nearly as enthralled by sports as some.

 

I keep up.  I know whats going on in most of the major sports -- pro-football, college football, pro-baseball, playoff basketball.  Catch Mike & Mike on ESPN Radio a time or two a week.  I even participate in a family fantasy football and baseball league.  I can converse knowledgably about sports.

 

The thing is ... I actually don't watch all that many games, and I almost never watch an entire game.  I catch highlights.  Unless there's something especially interesting going on ... games are mostly long and tedious.  I'll watch the Cowboys or Longhorns if they're in a game worth watching, or I'll leave it on while I'm doing something and watch passively.  We go to a few Astros baseball games a year -- though we didn't this year because they sucked.  Live baseball is really my favorite sports-watching experience.  I watch baseball playoff games occasionally, and the Superbowl.  I haven't actually watched a basketball game in years.

 

Sports are more of a news event for me than an actual event to watch ... or a source of genuine excitement.

As a fellow Cowboy fan I have to say a game worth watching is becoming a rare occurrence.

All I know is that I am enjoying the hell out of A&M in the SEC this year. Kicking myself as I am taking my wife camping and had promised her this weekend before I realized that it was when we were going to be playing 'Bama. So freakin stupid of me
