The only other sport I watch is CFL and only if the Stamps are playing. Other than that, if I'm not camping or fishing I'm racing cars or 4X4ing. Life's too short to spend in front of the tube.

After the Flames:

Hitmen and Stamps. The only other teams I go out of my way to see when they are out this way.

Soccer on the tube. Truly is the beautiful game.

Never: baseball (too slow), NBA (just the highlights, if it so happens to be on), NFL (too much hype, soap opera on a field), or poker (not even a sport, just a bunch guys sitting around a table).

SOCCER SOCCER SOCCER!!!!!!

CHELSEA JUST BEAT LIVERPOOL IN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE QUARTER FINALS WITH AN AGGREGATE 7-5 BUT A 4-4 ALL TIME CLASSIC TIE 2ND LEG WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

VANCOUVER (WHERE I LIVE, BUT FLAMES4LIFE!!!!) JUST GOT A MLS FRANCHISE....WHOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111

Anyways I grewup playing BBall, but march madness aside, I dont find the nba to be AS exciting anymore and football is too stop and go for me, fun to play, but not really enough continuous for my tastes

good to see a lot of soccer fans, Im really hoping this is a sport Canada can soon adopt as a national favourite to go beside my other spectator sport fav HOCKEY!!!!

Not really a spectator of any other sport other than hockey. In fact hockey takes up about 80% of what I watch daily on any given day. That includes regular TV, sitcoms, cartoons, news, etc. I used to watch a lot of NFL, NCAA, and NBA basketball (the Dan Marino & Michael Jordan era) when I was a kid in high school, but I really fell out of love with the televised sport because of the attitudes of the athletes. As exciting as they can be to watch - a lot of those guys are complete failures at life off the court. And that goes double for the NFL and its athletes. I feel like I'm watching a future Who's Who of murder/rape suspects. They might as well have their mugshot taken when they lineup on the line of scrimmage before the snap.

That said, I do still watch the occasional football game. The Riders in the CFL and the Dolphins in the NFL are my teams, but I don't follow them near as seriously as I do the Flames. One sport I am trying to watch and follow more is lacrosse. I even wish I could learn enough about it to play, but its hard to find a rec league for lacrosse anywhere in Vancouver...or at least one that I can ease into.

I am active in many sports, particularly basketball, either through organized rec leagues, or just the pick-up outdoor kind.

Soccer, basketball, ultimate frisbee, golf, frisbee-golf, slo-pitch, curling...even dodgeball. :lol:

I'll pretty much play anything.

But I am truly sorry - I just CANNOT watch soccer, golf, curling, or baseball on TV. (ugh, don't get me started on baseball - i hated watching baseball BEFORE the steroid scandal so you can imagine how awesome I think it is now!) They are all legit sports IMO, but too damn slow to watch on TV. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate them, but I can't get on the edge of my seat for any of them no matter what's at stake.

As sad as it is, I do occasionally watch Poker on TV, but ONLY because I am trying to pick up a few hints and tips from the pros to help elevate my own game. I don't even consider poker a sport.

English Premier League (Aston Villa), MLB (Blue Jays) & F1 pretty much equally after hockey.

Casual Stamps fan, I watch the LDC & playoff games, but not much besides that.

Baseball, any game that is on really, mostly the Tigers though. GO TIGERS!

Also the occasional football game, no team in particular, and during the NBA season if nothing else is on I'll flip on the Pistons game.

I used to watch The expos all the time, but now i can't really watch except for the odd jays game... I actually like watching soccer a lot because of the similarities between it and hockey.
