Ice hockey. I was miserable with the NHL lockout. Other than that...I pretty much like most else. I love skiing and tennis..... basketball, soccer, lacrosse, running are good...I'm too small to play real football, but I like touch. Umm...not a fan of Nascar, golf, etc.

Oh, sports teams:

Hockey: I've been a loyal Ranger fan since the ripe age of three and a half, but face it: they stink! I like the Colorado Avalanche, the New Jersey Devils are okay, too. Not the Islanders...that's like the Yankee-Red Sox rivalry of hockey (Rangers-Islanders)-- a number of fights are guaranteed whenever they play each other.

Baseball: I'm a Red Sox fan from NY, lol. I find the Yankees to be...too self-assured and Derek Jeter, in my humble opinion and contrary to that of most others, is very arrogant...I get that perception just from the way he stands with a smug look on his face all the time. I guess I also resent them for having such a large payroll. The president makes about $400,000 a year to lead a country and Alex Rodriguez gets 252 million for 10 years. That means that A-rod is getting paid 25.2 million annually or 63 times the salary of the President of the United States to swing a chunk of wood and throw a ball. How pathetic is that? I think the Red Sox come across as a more down to earth team and anyone who opposes the Yankees is good.

Football: I'm not a huge fan of any team. I like the Jets better than the Giants...but if one of them gets eliminated, I'll root for the other. I like the Patriots and I sort of like the Colts because they have part of my name, lol. :lol:

Basketball: Again, no single team. I like to watch it, but who I want to win varies.

Tennis, Skiing, Lacrosse, Running, Soccer: No team and I rarely watch any of these, except sometimes tennis. I just like to play them.

I voted for soccer. I play soccer so I am kind of biased ;)

To watch on TV...
I love to watch hockey! I am a Toronto Maple Leafs fan! celiac3270, I was also disappoited with the NHL lockout! I don't really watch many other sports on tv. I'll watch the Superbowl once a year and golf or curling once in a while but that's pretty much it!

Yep, the salaries of these sports players are insane. The high salaries should be going to the people in the military and the people who help keep this country safe. And the Presidents to get so little money for all they do compared to people who do so much less for so much more. Something doesn't add up to me. <_<

My son is into martial arts (To-Shin-Do) and will have his black belt in about 18 months. He just might be the youngest one to get one too so I am biased about that. Outside of that I don't have any interest in professional or team type sports.

Bush (or another President) would have to hold the position for 630 years to get the salary that Rodriguez gets in ten (assuming the salary doesn't go up). Or, to put it in perspective, 63 years to earn what A-rod gets in one. That's pathetic. That's my primarily qualm with many of these sports. And while nearly all athletes are overpaid, I think hockey is much, much better...still outrageous at times, but in comparison to baseball, decent.

I put down what my favorite sport to DO is. I'm not a big fan of watching track, but I love running. As for watching... I *used* to be a basketball fan, but then the Lakers tanked it, and they're just not so fun to watch anymore. (I tried, really I did.) So, these days, I mostly watch european soccer, since that's what my husband records non-stop on the TiVo. ;-)

Huge Baseball fan......GO TRIBE! (I also like the Cubbies).

College Football = OU Bobcats & OSU Buckeyes (Can't watch Pro Football Anymore After the Browns Left in '95....sellout jerk Modell!)

Hockey = NY Rangers (They stink but it goes along with rooting for underdogs like the Indians and Cubs).

I also enjoy playing basketball (Although I HATE Pro-Basketball), baseball & softball.

Yes. College football and college basketball are better than their professional counterparts. Another Ranger fan... they're terrible. I'm not asking for a Stanley Cup in only ten years--I'm just asking for a decent playoff run. <_<

Yep, I'm sure they'll take real good care of Javy...right after he gets back from being on the diasabled list. I think I heard them say he wouldn't be back till late July-early August. He's been injured alot this year which is unfortunate for the O's..they were bitten by the injury bug

Thanks for the invite! :) Not sure when I'll get out there next, but I will definitely remember to contact you if I do. My dad's sister and all of her fam/kids are still there, but after my grandma passed away a few years ago I don't get there as often... :(
