    I'm a fan of any basketball games like NBA. I find it really exciting.In fact, I always pay attention to end games.

    I like football, most college football. The NFL (at least for me) really does mean No Fun League. I'll still watch some games on Sunday or Monday night but overall, I much prefer the college game.

    Watching the two toms run around the house chasing each other. Such good sport!

    I rarely watch sport; I prefer to read about it.

    Porn - it's almost like watching naked wrestling. Sometime there's a little dodge ball at the end of the match.

    I used to watch football (American) a lot but I've pretty much stopped. Not because I dislike the sport itself, but the coverage, spectacle, and handling of if by the NFL is atrocious, juvenile, and laughable.

    I just watch tennis and soccer (football) now.

    Used to be a huge NHL fan but the lockouts, reduction of fighting, hitting and all the CBA limitations has really put my desire to watch it on hold. Used to watch a ton of games nowadays I'm just glad if I can watch the game of the week so to speak.

    While Football itself is a great sport I hate the way the NFL is celebrating and handling stuff.

    NBA sadly has turned into the national thug league, where it's cool to beat up fans, take guns to the game and chest on wives, girl friends yeah no thanks. I remember watching superstars like Jordan and thinking wow that guy can jump...But that time seems to be long gone.

    Football is the sport I watch most, primarily NFL, but some college as well. My wife is from St. Louis and obviously a Cardinals fan. So, she watches baseball on TV any time she can catch the Cards. I'll watch some other sports occasionally like volleyball, golf, tennis, and racquetball.

    Meh, she's not really bothered. St. Louis folks are by far baseball people.

    Football, both NFL and College. It feels so good to have football back, my weekends were feeling a bit empty without it!

    I used to love Formula 1, but it is a shadow of the sport that it was in the late 80s early 90s when I first started watching it.

    Today I just watch American football - NFL. Despite what the detractors of the NFL may say, the great thing about it is that due to how short the season is relative to any of the other American sports the product is consistently excellent because every game counts - the first regular season game this year was fantastic. It is also for this reason why I only ever watch playoff hockey - it is almost a completely different spectacle to regular season NHL games.

    NBA since 1990
    Horse racing since 1996

    Occasionally watch MMA and boxing too. I used to love watching NFL but we get no telecast in my country. Not even for Super Bowl. My first love was MLB though. I only watch soccer during World Cup. I had a bunch of videos for basketball and horse racing. And some for MMA, boxing, and NFL. Had many documentaries on some of the athletes who interest me before I left my external hard drive by accident at a resort. More of a historian with hoops and horse racing though.

    Agreed. The Forties, Fifties and Sixties were the best. Names like Nuvolari, Fangio and Hill are hard to forget.

    Funny, I watch less and less soccer because of the reasons you stopped watching football for.

    (Don't care for watching other sports so got a lot of free time in exchange. :) ) Besides the juvenal / 'entertainy' presentation I hate the lack of any anti-doping enforcement and over the top sellout. But I love playing it too much to not follow it at least remotely.

    I grew up being a huge American Football fan. Now I don't care and watch both it and baseball just occasionally. If anything about sports worship that bothers me is the self worth that sometimes is assigned to having a winning professional sports franchise in your home town. The odds are against you, and your self worth suffers accordingly. ;)
