View Full Version : Do you like watching sports?

March 5th, 2011, 5:36 AM
A lot of people like watching sports, a lot of people don't like watching sports.

I personally don't like watching sports because I am not playing in the game and I don't personally know any of the players so why should I watch them play?

I don't see how it is amusing to watch some random team/person play some sport that chances are I won't like anyway. So no, I don't watch sports. In my whole life, I've watched 2 football matches and a basketball match, and I only did it due to incredible boredom before getting my computer.

It honestly depends on the sport for me (and I imagine for everyone else as well). It's fun to watch people get tackled in football but I'll never watch a whole game and the same goes for hockey fights. I curled for ten years and will watch it if it's on TV but I'll never plan my day thinking "First I'll have lunch and then watch the curling match for four hours".

I don't like watching sports. Unless I know some of the people, I'm not interested it. Unless it's from anime, but IRL, no.

I don't like watching sports because I get very bored very fast.

If you count SC2, then yes. :P

But yeah, I watch baseball and racing of various forms from time to time.

I enjoy playing sports such as badminton which is pretty much the only sport I'm pretty good at but I personally hate watching sports because I have no idea what's going on and I don't know any of the players who are in the game and it's so confusing and boring...

I do not like watching sports on like the television or something. I go to local football games and basketball games occasionally. However, more often than not, I'm just screwing around with friends, rather than watching the game. So yeah, not that big of a fan of watching sports, tbh. It'd be much more fun to play them.

the chargers and clippers are my teams

I only watch the super bowl. I figure the best teams in the league have gotta be there, so I'll watch it. I really don't enjoy sports on tv though because I'm not playing it and I don't know anyone or care for any one team over another.

I watch car racing and basketball sometimes, but other than that, I"m not interested in watching any sports.

It depends on the team and sport. I love watching my high school's teams in any sport [especially volleyball ^_^] and I really like watching like pro baseball, gymnastics and track...but I hate pro hockey and I don't really enjoy watching pro football, though sadly I still get into it when I watch but that's because I'm competitive.

If it's a team I like then I'll usually tune in but I won't always pay careful attention... it'll usually be in the background while I'm doing something else.

As for attending actual events, I've went to a few of my college team's basketball games on night where I just would be sitting around my dorm room anyway. Students get in for free, so why not?

Watching sports isn't that bad to watch but sometimes you get bored watching sports all the time, I don't really know much about sport teams.I sometimes watch rugby on T.v or Car racing.

Sometimes, the good part is that it makes me go play the sport, I just watched.

i really hope the NFL doesn't have a lockout, i would have nothing to watch next fall and it would be intensely boring. a deep void would be missing. fingerscrossed

I'm definitely a sports guy... as long as they're sports I enjoy, which is pretty much limited to American football. I cannot stand watching anything else whether its bowling or soccer or baseball or basketball. I don't really know why, but I just feel intensely bored when I try to keep up with sports like that. :<

doesn't do much for me.
i can tolerate extreme sports, but the only professional sports i remotely enjoy watching are hockey, basketball, skateboarding and snowboarding.

I am a huuuuuuuge sports fanatic. Football, Tennis and Baseball are three of the top sports I watch. I do watch other sports though, but in events only. Those include the World Cup soccer games, the Olympics, and College Basketball.

even /i/ watch the Olympics aha.

i love knowing it's your country's team competing against other country's teams.

I love watching tennis. It's probably my favorite sport and favorite sport to watch. I just love everything about it. Haha.

March 23rd, 2011, 8:37 PM
I like watching my college's football team, and occasionally the basketball team. I just enjoy watching football in general, but I don't have a team to cheer for otherwise so it's boring.

I love to watch MLB. I'm a huge Baseball fan. I'll sometimes watch Basketball, but it all depends on if I feel like it, however; I always enjoy a good Baseball game no matter what.

Just for the record my favorite team is the NYY (New York Yankees).

The Olympics are like crack to me; especially the Winter ones. At the most recent games in Vancouver, my housemates and I got seriously addicted to all of the cross events and anything involving a bobsleigh track, despite the fact that none of us had ever gone skiing/snowboarding and had no idea of the rules. With certain sports like that, it's less about rule comprehension and more about just getting into the moment. A few crashes along the way doesn't hurt either!

As for the rest of the time, I can watch a good game of tennis, as each game is normally just a quick burst of energy. It's like watching lots of little games instead of one big long slog, as other stuff like football (soccer) or rugby can often be. Sometimes, I'll also watch Formula 1, less for the actual racing and more to witness the strategy involved.*

And yeah, for the crashes... I'm only human, dammit!

Hockey. Hockey. Hockey. xD

Not just because I love the sport, but I find it fun to root for a team and talk with other people about it. Sports talk has even been the basis for many of my friendships, and it's always a great conversation starter, too. Obviously I can't control who's on my team and whatnot, but it's really cool to watch a sport you like consisting of the some of the best players in the world.

To me, anyways. :cheeky:
