    1. Boxing--- Mostly coaching, but I do spar here and there... on my fav sports list Boxing is 1 & 2 followed by Football at #3...

    2. Skateboarding--- Just recently got back into it after a 15yr hiatus... dont know where the urge came from, but it consumed me enough to go buy a new deck which I find time to ride everyday

    3. Fishing--- Mostly pier fishing, but I do wade from time to time

    Honorable mention... Studying for the LSAT--- because I'm interested in Law School (sports & entertainment law)... Watching Lacrosse--- If it wasn't such an expensive sport and definitely had more involvement with inner city kids, this sport could really boom...

    Seems all I have time for lately is landscaping and home improvement projects, and it definitely gives my brain a break from work.

    I brought Stella in cans once and he almost didn't allow me aboard.

    I don't sail but the same holds true when we fish. Getting broad sided by a wave right when you're about to take a swig can ruin your whole day....and your front teeth. I'm sure that broken glass doesn't mix too well with a boat either.

    Nice Hobie Cat. I would love to have (or try out) one of their Mirage Drive kayaks, maybe the one with the outriggers and sails.

    Edit: Ha, I'm on my droid and didn't see you just answer the same question.
    The boat in the pic is Siren Song, a J133, which I raced on for the last bunch of years. Also do Wed nights out of Haverstraw Bay on the Hudson. The Hobie is the Bravo design, great for small bodies of water. If sailing in Newport, I would get the Hobie Wave. Better for the heavy air.

    There are several things you can try: human hair, predator urine (wolf, bobcat, etc - sold at nursery), Cridder Ridder (Home Depot), chile powder, etc.

    I had been using the Deer spray from Home Depot, guess I should mix it up. Guess the drought drove them there for the moisture in the plants.

    It's definitely the broken glass issue.

    Idk, I've never sailed there and I don't think I've ever gone to SH for a beach day.

    I think we're sailing tomorrow night down around the tip on Manhattan, I'll find out.

    -Music (used to play a lot - piano seriously and some other stuff here and there)

    -Languages. I love learning the nuances of English and I take pride in speaking it near perfectly. Sorry for gloating. Trying to learn Spanish fluently atm.

    -Writing. Kinda goes hand-in-hand with languages above. I love writing essays for college on topics that interest me. I'm not too artistic as in photography or drawing, say, but I feel like crafting a well-written paper is a work of art in itself.

    -Sports obviously.

    -Debating conservative morons and setting them straight. Debating anything in general.

    -Politics and current events is a growing passion of mine.

    -Socializing. I am very outgoing and I would rather talk to a doorknob than keep quiet.
