    The best sport most closely mimics what the human body was designed for. The human (especially male) body was designed for hunting and war in small groups. Spears were used and a lot of running was involved.

    So which sport best fits these criteria? Soccer? Tennis? Lacrosse? Field hockey? Track and field?

    One drawback: it rewards the unnaturally tall.

    That depends:
    • If one is of a mind to make a living sports player, it's the one with which one is most adept.
    • If one aims to obtain only entertainment, it's the one that most holds one's attention.
    • In all other situations, there's probably no best sport.
