Spinoff: What's your favorite sport?
 
What's your favorite (male-dominated) sport to watch, if you like any of them?

I think baseball is really boring because it lasts too long, but it's great if you bring a good book! :D

I really enjoy watching basketball games, and the non-"manly" sports I really enjoy watching are ice skating, gymnastics (my favorite), swimming, and track. I enjoy soccer games live, too, but wouldn't watch them on tv.

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

Basketball (college especially) is my second favorite.

Football is THE WORST. I'd rather watch paint dry - it's more exciting!

When I first read the title I was going to answer skiing, but since that doesn't cut it here - NONE! I feel very fortunate to be married to a man who doesn't care to watch sports either. He does like to play if given the opportunity though.

Tennis to play, NASCAR to watch.

Baseball is my first choice: Member of Red Sox Nation....and before I get any comments I have been my whole life :lol:

Soccer would be my second choice

I know what you mean. I'm a St. Louis Cardinals fan from a looooong line of St. Louis Cardinals fans. But when I moved here to San Antonio, McGuire was in full swing (literally) and everyone thought I was a bandwagoner. I was SO INSULTED. So I started showing off my tee shirt from the '82 World Series. Sure, I was 17 in 1982, and by then had been Cardinals-crazy for 17 years :D but at least it was proof that I wasn't a bandwagoner!

I am going to have to go with something that is not yet on the list.

Paintball

This is such an exciting and up and coming sport, albeit a bit expensive to participate in.

Seeing XBall Tournaments or simply 5v5 team capture the flag games can get quite interesting.

I suggest you check it out to watch sometime if you have the chance to.

My husband inspected people's hats last fall to see if they were new :lol:
Even though I am not a M******* (he hates it when I say that), since, I am from New England he has agreed to share the Red Sox with me. His tune changes when he is around my dad. Then my dad has first dibs on the Sox :wink:

PartyHair 06-20-2005 02:17 PM

That hat thing is hilarious. I do the same thing: "Oh, their hat's old and sweaty - they're a TRUE Cardinals fan!" :lol:

My dad was a huge Cardinals fan. My earliest memories involve driving around in the pickup on warm summer evenings with KMOX on the radio, listening to the Cardinals play. Dad always took me on these jaunts with him, not my brother. He knew all along he was raising a diehard fan. :D

mrspoppers 06-20-2005 02:17 PM

I love baseball, football, and basketball. We have Seahawks season tickets, which is a blast. I like hockey, but the season is so long that I'm bored by the end. I hate soccer and would rather watch paint dry than watch a soccer game.

SuZen 06-20-2005 02:31 PM

I have very little interest in team sports and neither does my BF, a TRUE gem! We don't know where ESPN is on our cable system. Sometimes we watch car racing on the Speed channel though.

I have the same memories of my dad, only it was a jeep....my brother did't go either and can you believe, he is know a Yankee fan :shock:
No wonder my dad brought me :lol: I watch the games with my son now too; and, we even get my daughter involved sometimes too. Her sport is English Riding Hunt Jump.

FOOTBALL!!! NFL and College

Baseball runs a close second; I only keep up with college though.

LJCurly9 06-20-2005 05:01 PM

Soccer! I'm a huge soccer person...and even if I weren't playing in college, I'd still be so in love with it. Put me on a soccer field anywhere in the world, and it's my Heaven on Earth.

I do enjoy a good football or rugby game, though!

MissJ 06-20-2005 06:28 PM

My favorite (male-dominated) sports to watch would have to be basketball, baseball and soccer. I still can't understand football for the life of me.

As far as my favorite sport to actually do (non-male dominated) is, hands down, gymnastics. It is my life...
