What other sports are played in the Siglerverse?

    The Galactic Fighting association and the Intergalactic Fighting Association (the GFA and IFA respectively) which is mentioned in the Scott sigler novella Title-fight. I’m listening this story now and it COULD BE my favorite novella story Scott has done…

    There is also soccer…I believe it was a Quyth dominated sport, however.

    We know that Baseball is still played (and it’s still boring as hell), as well as MMA-style fighting. There is also a Sklorno sport called “spot racing” that is mentioned.

    We know that the intergalactic races play football and soccer. Both of those are really big main-line sports.

    What other sports — particularly less common sports — are played in the Siglerverse?

    From what we’ve heard, it appears some of the races would have exceptionally disturbing competitive eating contests. However, does anyone engage in these contests?

    Just a thought. I’m not a sports fan in general. This kept me from reading The Rookie until I read everything else… and eventually starting hungering for another fix. When pressed, I claim Competitive Eating as my favorite sport. (I do find myself lingering there if I come across it on the TV.)

    Cheers,
