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

Bob-

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... :(

I didn't vote because gymnastics wasn't on the list :(

That's my favorite sport to watch. I also like volleyball, I'm not a huge sports fan though. My husband isn't either, which makes me very happy. My sister's husband is obsessed with sports and I'm so glad mine's not.

I agree that the amount these people get paid is outrageous. But, really it's the fans that pay their salaries. So if people are willing to pay to go to the games, sometimes really expensive tickets, then they are going to get paid that much.

Same thing with movie stars, we complain about how much they get paid, but we are the ones that are paying them! :lol:

Hey, this is random, but has anyone ever watched the nationwide cheerleading competitions when they're on tv? They are kind-of funny, but I dig watching them in a weird way too. I mean, how the heck do those little girls get into those poses while being thrown up into the air that high??!

I love all sports. I watch the Huskers play football (Nebraska passtime); Baseball I watch whomever is in the world series; Tennis my favorite is Agassi :); Track ~ I only like to watch (watched) my son who just graduated (he took first in the State in the 200m, 2nd in the 400m & 100m). I like to play racquetball, tennis, swim, hike, walk, and basically do anything fun!! :)

For the next 4+ years I will be watching my son play wide receiver for the UNO Mavericks (Omaha team). :) Bleacher bottom is a way of life for me!!! :P

yeah, when there is nothing else on then I watch it :lol:

It is pretty interesting to see everything they can do. One of my friends used to be a cheerleader for the MD Terps and she was one of those people that got tossed in the air because she was so tiny.. but wow how they do that I will never know

I like the cheerleading and dance competitions. But they are kind of similar to gymnastics.

We Braves fans know about that injury bug. I think we have played half of the last two seasons with rookies. We looked around at one point earlier this year and realized that Rafael Furcal was the oldest one in the infield when Julio Franco wasn't playing first!

Buckeyes, Cincinnati Bengals and Reds are my teams. I was also a HUGE John elway fan (hence the Bronco in my name - Bux = Buckeyes, my undergrad alma mater).

I also love soccer (played since I was knee-high to a grasshopper :lol:

March Madness is great as well...

My favorite sport to watch is hockey- I grew up going to Bruin's games with one of the players so it's in my blood. The hockey strike this year was awful- it's the one sport that I go crazy watching. OK and I have to admit, no one out there hate me, but I do like the Red Sox. I don't like baseball but I'm proud of them. I don't care how good the Patriots are- i still hate football, sorry.

My tastes run a little off-kilter- I'd rather watch a surfing or skiing (especially moguls)competition. For myself, I like yoga, skiing, surfing, moutain biking. this is a good topic!

San Francisco Giants and Red Sox all the way!

I love to watch baseball all the time.

Donna-I'm going to the Giants vs. Braves game on wednesday.

And the Giants also know about the injury bug going around, everyone is hurt on our team too, even through I don't like Barry Bonds and think he is a jerk, he is fun to watch :)

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
