I uses to masturtbate daily but that is something girls do as well, so that dones't qualify. I once helped change a tire, but my sister did most of the work, so I can't get much credit for that. I think the most manly thing I have ever done is go fishing. I wasn't good at it but it still counts.

After going out surveying and hacking my leg with a machete, I went straight from the hospital to my softball game.

In hindsight - not the smartest thing to do.

But we were in the Class C city semifinals and the team needed me, dammit.

Humner, I don't think Fudgey intended it as a contest, either, but many of us were taken aback by your honest, simple answer. My sister was widowed in 2001, with two young children. I know some of the challenges she faced, but living through it is something else.

I appreciate your response. It was an eye-opener and a testament to the value of this board beyond technical support.

I am guessing Fudgey is looking for the stereotypical manly stuff so I will play.

I once blew up the motor on my motorcycle on the freeway, crashed, called a friend with a truck -somehow got the 450lb bike in the back, drove it home in time to take off with my buddies on a deer hunting trip.

Pretty stupid considering I am now positive I had a concussion and ended up with a couple of infected spots of road rash.

I actually don't know anything that could top that!

The only thing I could think of was hitting a softball over the right fielders glove when I was 20, and when rounding second base felt the ball hit me in the left leg around my ankle, kept running until I scored an in-the park home run, but couldn't stand up when my teammates came out to congratulate me. When I told them that my leg hurt where the ball hit me, they all looked puzzled, the ball never hit me, I broke my leg in two places, and ran from second base to home. AND scored the game winning run!

This thread actually just made me remember another story I was witness to.

I was part of a group of guys hanging hanging out for the Bachelor Party of a mutual friend about 12 years ago. We all met at another friend's place for a bbq. We were all drinking and most of us were in our mid-twenties.

A touch football game broke out and soon someone came up injured, of course it was the Groom. He was holding his arm, but said he was fine, we ended the game BUT kept on drinking and after dark started our pub crawl.

By the time we made it to the first peeler joint, around midnight, I saw the grooms arm and I was very concerned about the swelling. He said it was fine. Fast forward a few hours---- we are all at a pancake house. Someone asks how his arm is doing, he takes off his jacket and we are all slack jawed, it didn't look so hot.

So we went to the Emergency room, he had broken his arm just above the elbow. Got married later that day with the cast on........his Bride wasn't pleased with any of the groomsmen.

Ahem. Not a man, but [redacted for TMI] and it feels like a vise grip sometimes. Far worse than anything done to the upper body feels. Oh, and I do this *daily*.

Manliest thing I've done? Probably getting lost in Seattle because I didn't stop and ask for directions.

/Oh, is that not what was meant?

Humner wins, as all have said. Sorry that you had to go through that.

With that siad, the manliest thing I've ever done is slip on the ice with a broken ankle in a walking boot from a smashmouth football game, dislocate my kneecap on the other leg, and have to bang my kneecap against the asphalt parking lot to get it back in place. Fun times.

With that siad, the manliest thing I've ever done is slip on the ice with a broken ankle in a walking boot from a smashmouth football game


I walked from the train station to the top row of Gillette Stadium in a blizzard on a broken foot 3 years ago. Stitches still in and everything. Managed not to dislocate anything else along the way though.

Why didn't you take the escalator and then sit down by the fireplace before the game starts? Oh, I forgot, you're in the cheap seats.

My seats are in Wrentham.

And there are no cheapies there. Nosebleed seats on Stubhub set me back a bit.

My problem is that they've been a good team for the last 10 years, have a large fan base, and sell out instantly. So I take it in the shorts and buy two tickets for the price of three.

I spend very little money on disposable, fun stuff. So it's worth it to me once a year. It's always a memorable experience for my wife and me and quality time spent together.

I had to put on one of my dad's old suits and be Mr. Edward Rochester from Jane Eyre for an english project in high school. Come to think about it I had to portray the dean's assisstant who was also a guy for another english project...sucks being the tallest in a group of girls.

Although it doesn't really compare to humner...

I went to an NFL playoff game 3 days after major cranial surgery. It was worth it to see the Broncos win their first playoff game since Elway, coupled with Tom Brady losing his first playoff game.
