Surprisingly, Volleyball according to this web page.

I think football (soccer) is the most popular world wide sport.

The discussion begins, ends, and is punctuated with soccer.

It is refreshing to see that on a male-dominated forum like this that somebody can take time to recognize the female athletes of the world.

I, too, agree that women's beach volleyball is the sport of the future.

Here is my tribute:

In speaking of volleyball, a friend of mine told me that the World Nude Volleyball Championships were held at a nudist camp north of Toronto a couple of years ago. I'm sure lots of bouncing going on there.

There is no so called World Nude Volleyball Championship. There are informal leagues between some clubs and some resorts hold annual tournaments. Both Ponderosa and Four Seasons west of Toronto host large tournaments every summer, and Bare Oaks (the one north of Toronto) had their first one last summer. The big one is at White Thorn Lodge in Pennsylvania, the Superbowl of Nude Volleyball as the call it, with close to 100 teams. Come to think of it, with the American penchant for referring to everything they have as a world championship maybe they consider this tournament as such, but I have never heard it called that.

This begs the question of how do you know all of this, Hymie? :wink:
There is one thing that no Argo fan should ever forget - Rob Ford, Doug Ford, Paul Godfrey, Phil Lind and Larry Tanenbaum are all pure evil!
