#ManDay is coming. What makes a Man a Man? [COMPETITION]

OK! Here's the deal... Men. #ManDay is coming. A day for cigars and steak, not nappies and paperwork. It's on the 20th May 2013. And to prepare for it - I've been asked, to ask you, to help me come up with the Top 5 Things That Make A Man A Man.

We're then going to go head to head with some other bloggers/personalities and if we win. 5 of you and me will get a pimping "sport experience". Those are all the details I got.

I repeat:
  • Tell me via Facebook / Twitter or in the comments below what makes a Man a Man
  • I'll choose the Top 5
  • We go head to head against other bloggers with some crowd voting
  • If we win, the 5 best of your submissions and I win a rad "sporting experience".

Let's get to it. I'll collate all the crowdsourcing below. Make it funny. Make me cry. Get all testosteroney on each other. Yee haw!

CROWDSOURCING: THE TOP 5 THINGS THAT MAKE A MAN A MAN.
