I think we are all fans of tennis. But what other sports do you follow?

In my case the absolute top2 are tennis and soccer. But I do follow many other, some of them rather occasionally: basketball, athletics, winter sports, golf, snooker or I even watched some darts when I had time (is it still a sport though?)

Soccer, yes! Love it, didn't take long for the sanctimonious 'football' purists to come out!!

Obvious North American influence here, so love the baseball, hockey, American Football and basketball. I love the Olympics and boxing as well. Volleyball is phenomenal, but I just do not get a chance to follow it much. It comes down to time - don't watch much anymore, but if I could I would follow them all - not many sports I can't get into.

Yeah I knew it some petty users will try to crucify me for using the word „soccer” instead of football.
I did it on purpose so that American users don’t confuse the two sports but you guys apparently have a puristic mission. This is weak as fuck.

I watch whatever sport is on and keep more or less casual track of what's going on a few (moto, cycling, athletics, basket, football) but I only follow tennis with dedication.

Tennis, basketball (pro and college), American football (pro and college), football; occasionally, I'll follow some winter sports like skeleton, bobsleigh, Alpine skiing.
I don't really watch baseball, but I keep up with the results.

Of course, I follow soccer, doesn't everyone? In addition, I follow winter sports, athletics, table tennis, and hockey. I don't follow any of the sports that are really big in the US, though.

And by the way, I'm chuffed to bits Guitarra uses the term "soccer", everyone is familiar with American terms, and we are not nincompoops, are we?;)

Italians call it ‘calcio’ why then not opt for Calcio, and go for soccer? Last I checked Italians were much better than muricans at it. The rules are organised by FIFA, there is no s there, the official name of the sport is Football. We the old continent found it and developed it. Muricans should just follow suit, even if they don’t, they can’t tell us how to call our own sport.

Anyway didn’t wanna derail my good friend @guitarra ’s thread and above posted my on-topic reply following a brief jest but had to say something after your rather sloppy post.

Golf, cricket, football and cycling are the only other sports which I like aside from tennis but I don't really follow them closely, prefer playing them to watching most of the time.

Football - Yes, absolutely love it.

Cricket - No, absolutely hate it.

Basketball - I don't hate it, but I don't watch it or follow it that much, I suppose not enough hours of the day to watch everything.

Hockey - Only occasionally

Volleyball - No, unless it's the Brazil women's team and I've ran out of porn to watch :p

Athletics - Yes

Table Tennis - No, but don't hate it.

Golf - Not really, even when the open was held just a few miles from my home I wasn't that fussed about it.

American football - I don't watch it, but the superbowl was always a good pissup

Baseball - No

Winter sports - occasionally when the winter Olympics is on, but even then I don't pay much attention to it.

Cycling - I don't watch road racing like the tour de France but I like the shorter indoor racing.

Handball - No

Boxing - I love it, every time there a big fight on I'll watch.

Other - I also like Rugby and will sometimes watch wrestling or UFC.

Just tennis, these days.

Used to watch boxing, NASCAR and basketball as well ... when I had more time for sports.

Snooker should have been an option, it's one of the biggest sports on Eurosport.

My answer is snooker, basketball (NBA) and soccer. Although in soccer, I can't really watch the games I care about due to pay tv.

Boxing for sure, try to watch basically every interesting HW fight. Obviously follow football as well. Otherwise I also like Badminton, Table Tennis or Ice Hockey, but unfortunately I rarely watch it.

Bundesliga is back in action today! Are you guys excited? Because I fucking am.
Even in free-TV. :inlove:
