Which do you classify as the most popular?

Football
Baseball
Basketball

Does hockey fit in there?
What about soccer?
NASCAR?

You might need to define your list

EDIT: Ah, I see you have now added a poll
That helps

For me... golf and tennis would be a tie

Yeah maybe I should have added soccer, but it won't let me change the list.

By the way my list is in no particular order.

Golf I'll follow if Tiger is playing

Nascar I can watch for 30 min maybe a hr or so

The Rest are my favorite Sports.

I don't consider nascar a sport so I'll disregard that option.

Boring depends on whether you're playing or watching.

I love golf and baseball. To those uninformed of the game, many would probably consider it boring. I love it, especially watching a good ball game.

Personally, I find football and basketball a bore to watch.

Yeah, I'd rather watch bowling on TV. They used to televise that.
They still do. Every Sunday morning on ESPN, and daily on ESPN Classic.

Personally, I voted for football/gridiron. Too much stop/start, plus guys playing in padding = lame. Rugby and Aussie Rules Football are far more exciting than gridiron.

(American) football. I'm a 23-year-old American male, and I have no idea how the game's even played. It can't hold my attention long enough to figure it out.

Boring to play? Boring to watch in person? Boring to watch on TV?

For example I find baseball to be incredibly boring, but going to a game on a nice day is a pleasant experience. I enjoy the atmosphere.

I can't watch it on television, though.

Umm. Hockey, Soccer nor Basketball are US Sports.
It was started in Springfield, Massachusetts (United States). I'm sure you can document a couple cases of someone throwing a ball through an elevated opening elsewhere in the world, but the sport we now call basketball was invented in the United States.

But it was thought up by Canadian Dr. James Naismith. So basketball is Canadian.

Basketball was invented by someone born in Canada. It was invented in the US and achieved widespread success and legitimacy in the US. I'd argue basketball is an American sport even though its inventor was Canadian.

Football. I can't think of anything more boring, sport or otherwise.

Baseball is about the only sport I can stomach watching, though it's more fun when you're there in person. I probably mostly like it for the food though, honestly.

Used to play catch with my Dad all the time but with a cricket ball and no gloves.
