Spinoff: What's your favorite sport?

Baseball is far and away my favorite sport (and anyone who says it's boring obviously doesn't understand the nuances of the game ).

I'm also a HUGE Arizona basketball fan. I pre-date Lute! That last year before Lute came here was brutal....I was little, but I still remember that!

My understanding turned into appreciation. My appreciation turned fanatic. I have calmed down a bit. I am not fanatic anymore. Now, I just feel that I will have this lifelong devotion, admiration, and appreciation of baseball and fully enjoy it FOREVER. The excitement... comradere... passion... intellect of the game is priceless.

GO SFGIANTS!
ohhh...

baseball to watch
volleyball to watch and play
golf... I try to like for my DBF. He is an avid golfer.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I won't bash you, b/c I understand. I used to hate baseball. Now, I loathe basketball, so we are even. In the past, I liked basketball. I did a switcharoo. My family are big basketball fans (some of them played pro in the Philippines ).

ETA: My mom, brother, boyfriend, my 2 bestfriends (and their boyfriends), and late-pops love(d) baseball. It is a common thread that brings us closer together. That is a huge reason why I love baseball so much.

He LOVES baseball, and every other sport that takes hours and hours to watch, and thinks it would be so fun for us to go as a family . I really won't mind, though - I'll just start frequenting the book swap and curlybook club boards more frequently

His grade/high school friend plays for the Wizards, so we were able to go to those games pretty frequently - that was a lot of fun!

The DC team is called the Nationals. (The team formerly known as the Expos.)


They swept my team their first ever homestand.



If I weren't looking for pitch location, where outfielders were set up, etc., baeball would be boring...it's all cerebral strategy, but the players look better than the guys who play chess!

And my team isn't losing every game this year. That makes me happy.

what is DaNa? It that board lingo. I am relatively new here. Anyhow, going as a family is good... bonding. Baseball is a nice medium in which to do that. Most baseball fans are friendly and bring family members all the time. It will be lovely.

and NetG, you are totally right. Great choice of words-- cerebral strategy. Baseball is very much a cerebral sport. I am mentally exausted after watching a great game.

I can't remember who, but another poster thought it was board lingo, too! I'm using all of this as ammunition for why we shouldn't have a junior if we have a boy next time

"DaNa". The pronunciation sounds lovely. The spelling is a bit confusing tho.

OFF TOPIC: Haha... I have a cousin named Herneth (pronounced Her-net). It is a combination of Hermie and Bernadette, her parents names. I know... I know, it makes no sense to me either. Crazy Filipino folks. Luckily she is a lovely young lady. When people ask why her name is Herneth, I just tell them, "I dunno... she's from Jersey". And people usually say, "OOhhhhh!", as if that explains it all.


PS. Herneth's brothers are named Herold, Herbert, and Hernard. In my opinion, my Uncle Hermie is very vain to allow his children to experience the heart ache that comes along with unusual names just so to name his kids after him.

I have more crazy stories about names like this. I have a cousin named Bonheart! If you wanna know why... just ask.
I've come to like watching football on TV the last few years since its very scheduled as to when the games are and the speed to which the plays are run. I used to feel like PH that it took forever and wasn't worth it. Haven't yet fallen for watching it in person. You miss all the side stories that I actually enjoy.

Baseball is a close second but some games can be very long.

When hockey comes back I'm going to get back into that because it is constant movement just like soccer. Too bad the scoring couldn't be (just a bit) higher. (I'm not talking football scores but 4-5 would be more exciting than 1-0.

If I'm playing myself it is hands down a good game of volleyball. Rotation and teamwork change of pace. Awesome. Baseball second again. Anyone can play both of these.

Although, my contacts give me depth perception. So now I look like a toddler trying to learn how to catch!

My in-laws (and basically all the native Texans I know) are just rabid about football. AND I HATE IT! We go to my in-laws for Sunday dinner every week and during football season I just sit and read while they yell and scream and holler around me.

i prefer cycling, skiing, fishing, hiking, boating, frisbee, pool, poker, golf and kite flying to those.
hate hockey, like play-off baseball and my Jays but not the rest of the regular season, like everything else, especially basketball and football followed by soccer, and I like one that's not on your list - cricket.
