    I enjoy football (NFL) the most. I wish the season was longer. Football is the one sport that seems unpredictable to me. The games are really never the same, I actually get excited when the games come on. Basketball bores me until the playoffs.

    The sport I enjoy playing the most is Tennis and Golf.

    No sport is more unpredictable than boxing; however, I wouldn't put no bets down on an NFL game either. :wink: You are right CarrieMonet!

    Hmmm. Don't get me wrong I enjoy boxing but I no longer respect the venue. I used to watch boxing with my step dad religiously, never missed the fights. I remember being a huge fan of Sugar Ray Leonard and would watch all the old Ali fights (my step-dad's collection).

    At any rate, that is when boxing seemed to be entertaining.

    Now I feel like it's all fixed. I don't like fights that last less than two rounds unless somebody seriously came out throwing blows. The judges seem to pick fighters who didn't actually WIN...so lately the sport as a whole turns me off...and I turn the channel. And I won't even mention the many Tyson fights that pissed me off...

    I would never support boxing by buying a fight...they will have to change the way it's judged first.

    I do admit I like amatuer boxing much better.

    I agree, especially the heavyweights. I would rather see smaller weight classes. Maybe middleweights or lightweights. Whichever weight has Casamayor and Coralles and Antonio Barrera. I'm not sure if they are in the same class or not. It seems the smaller guys are more evenly matched and the talent is more than the heavyweights. The heavyweights act like they just wanna dance for 12 rounds. I definately wouldn't buy a Tyson fight or any heavyweight bout nowadays. Maybe some of the other classes depending on who's fighting and what the undercard looks like.

    Man, I get a good sleep when MLB is on. It's like taking a dose of Nightquil.

    Baseball is not just about baseball, I think it's the atmosphere. That is why it's hard to watch it on television. But I have never been to a bad game when I actually go to the stadium. There is something about being there that makes it entertaining. What that is...I have no idea.

    What I will NOT do ever again in life is purchase season tickets for the Sonics again. Matter-of-fact...I won't buy a single game ticket either unless the Kings are in town...and for all that I'd rather take a two hour drive down to Portland and see the Kings play the trailblazers.
