For today's shit storm, let's go with "Sport You'd Most Like To See Become Professional At Some Point." You know, like club sports or recreational activities that are fun but don't have the following of the NFL or MLB.
My vote is Ultimate Frisbee.
Before you go all hipster-bashing on me, know this: I liked it before it was hipster, because it's like football, but with a frisbee. When I'm really bored at work, you know, that type of bored where you're staring at the keyboard in front of you wondering if the decisions you've made in your life are the right ones and if not how you're ever going to dig yourself you of this hole, this rut, this chasm that is your life in your mid-twenties...when I'm that bored at work, I google the word "Frisbee" just because I think it's about the most fun thing you could ever invent. And the guy who invented it looks like he knows a thing or two about fun.
Alright. Unconventional sport you'd like to see professionalized. Go.
