I can see this thread is getting pretty liberal with the word "sport".

are we talking about ones they play alone, in their free time? or ones they play with other attorneys?

a lot of firms in my region have softball teams.

and otherwise, i think golf is always the best answer.

Protip #1: if you admit to abusing the anon feature I am going to crucify you for it.

Protip #2: anon is not to a shield to prevent the shitstorm that ensues when you ask stupid questions. If you really want to know the answer to something, I suggest you grow a pair and accept the consequences of being an idiot.

what's funny is the people who do this are usually completely unknown posters with <100 posts.

Why does it upset you so much that someone uses the anonymous feature for such an insignificant topic?

2:50ish marathoner here. When I was at a V20, there were about a dozen or so hardcore runners in the office. Enough so that the firm had a locker room that was usually pretty busy in the mornings. A couple were high 2:40s. A few more were about as fast as me, maybe a tick slower. Several others were old-guy-Boston-qualifier fast. Most of us were either former college runners (albeit a decade or three removed) or competitive tri people. We usually swept the team competitions at the annual law firm charity 5k, though the individual competition was a bit out of reach -- when I was there, there was an OT-caliber marathoner who was an associate at a boutique who would drop a 14:XX. (My days in the 15s and 16s ended when I hit the legal drinking age, and even the fastest at the firm would be lucky to go 17 high.)

As long as we're being serious, I'd recommend squash. A lot of (old-fashioned, I've noticed) attorneys in my city play, and as it's something of a specialty sport there's a built-in sense of membership. A real blast too, once one gets the hang of it.

Awesome sport.

Does "hide the salami" count as a sport?
