Boxing hasn't been worth a damn to me since the days of Mohammed Ali on Wide World of Sports.
I agree, although I might be a touch younger and when I followed boxing it was all Hagler/Sugar Ray Leonard, then a few decades later the Ward/Gotti battles were, of course epic now??? Couldn`t name you a heavyweight/light or middleweight I`m remotely interested in.
Major Golf fan and a touch above being a hacker personally
I kept meaning to watch some baseball playoffs but it never happened. Oh well. I probably would have just wished Scutaro had been kept--what a second half for him.
I still follow the Sox and Pats. More Pats than Sox since 04. Both of these teams are about 10 notches below the B's for me though. Between the two teams, my blood probably only boiled in this last super bowl defeat.
I definitely noticed the bye week much more than usual this fall.
No hockey,So what to watch.. When I was younger there was always something else to keep me going... Alas I am confined to armchair recration... I look foward to football on the weekends.. I read a lot more than I have in the past few years... WHAT do some of the board do to entertain them selfs ???
Watch minor league and college hockey. I am a big PC fan and they are looking good this year!
probably baseball, but I love football as well. I will watch tonights NFL game. Love football- best TV sport. I play or have played APBA baseball and still do, and Fantasy Football so I'm all in baby. I do like the Celtics also but not as big a basketball guy as the other 3
You are doing yeoman's service in a dark hour, Old John; God bless.
Followed all four major sports 25 years ago. (Original) Big Three Celtics; ''86 Sox, even Sullivan era Patriots .
It was always Bruins & NHL first, last & always, but these days, I've lost interest in the other sports. Don't care anymore, save a bit o' Patriots (and even then, as a balm for the locked out season).
I can't watch any other sport. They all bore me to tears. I'm reading more, hiking more, getting back into Tai Chi, playing street hockey, catching up on other TV, going to more Seattle Thunderbirds games... etc.
The lockout has actually been pretty good for me.
I used to think that way.Hated hockey.Until I gave it a chance.Now love it.For me I love all the boston teams and follw them Equally.
I'm sorry, I used to watch baseball when I played. Watching Pedro pitch was magical. His short prime was the most dominant stretch of pitching since Walter Johnson. I think after watching hockey more and more, baseball is too slow for me. Any sport where athletes can get away with not being in shape is a testament to how slow the game is being played. Also, the Sox have not been a fun team to root for in both likability and on field results.
Been reading a lot too; it's nice to catch up with books I had piling up. On a WWII kick right now - just finished John Tolland's book on the Battle of the Bulge and now reading Max Hastings' "Inferno," which is fantastic.
Paying more attention to the Springfield Falcons, who look terrific. Got next Saturday off so I can go see them - can't wait!
I'm working on "Inferno" too. Hastings is an excellent writer as was the late John Keegan.
As for other sports- I've been watching a lot of NASCAR lately though the season ends this Sunday. Fortunately I've got women's college basketball just starting up.
Team Handball. Football, men's version (American). Rugby.
Great call on handball. I have Euro roots so I keep tabs at a distance. Too bad we don't really get a taste of it in North America.
As for other sports. Wow, I like 'em all.
Baseball might be my next favourite sport. Hopefully the Jays can play a meaningful game in late September......edit.....early September.......edit......August . Growing up, it was hockey in the winter and baseball/soccer in the summer.....which leads me to my next sport....
...Soccer. I get why some may think it's boring but I love it.
Football is only once a week so that doesn't take up too much time. Go Bucs!
I played basketball throughout high school and I used to love the sport but the older I get the less I love the NBA brand. I like the college & international style of play. More ball movement. Less 1 on 1.
I enjoy tennis and I'll watch grand slams but I'll go out of my way to watch my boy Novak play in any tournament that he's in.
I like golf but don't watch it that much because all I end up doing is watching the players' form in slow-mo the whole time, wondering why I can't do that.
