Short and sweet...

This is short and sweet...

Is my household less "American" because we don't watch Football / the Super Bowl?

Quite frankly, we don't really watch any sports in my house. On rare occasions, when there's NOTHING else on TV, we will have a baseball game on, but that's pretty rare. We usually find something else to do. I've been to HS football games [my brothers played]. I've been to hockey games [go Wings]. I've been to many baseball games. I've never once paid to go to any sporting event. The hockey games I went to were birthday presents. I don't mind being at a hockey game, but watching it on TV is boring... same with baseball. Never been a fan of football [NOT soccer... we're talking US football].

What about you? Whatcha think about sports?

I don't watch football except for the Super Bowl. I like basketball, baseball bores me to tears.

To each his own. Some people don't like cooking shows, mystery novels, or gardening.

I love HGTV for the home improvement shows. One of our favorites is Nicole Curtis. She fixes up old homes and tries NOT to modernize... she actually tries to keep with the age of the home to maintain the antiquity of the home. There's a couple that does similar... I don't remember the show name, but they're out of Mississippi or something.

Nicole is my HGTV celebrity crush.  Such a little hottie.  My wife’s HGTV celebrity crush is Scott McGillivray.

Team sports bore the shit out of me.  I do like watching individual sports like skateboarding, snowboarding, etc.  I wasn’t born with the competitive gene.

Me neither, even though my husband would disagree. jrSmiley_86_smiley_image.gif

I love sports and watch most of them--baseball, football, basketball, soccer, the Olympics, golf and tennis (usually just the majors).

Drives my wife crazy!

I find that most people that like one sport, usually like most sports.

The one that drove me insane was when I dated this guy that loved NASCAR and would watch it every damn Sunday! Talk about the most boring 4 hours...

I do draw the line at racing.

Who wants to see a continuous left turn for hours om end when you can watch Sportscenter and see all the interesting action summed up in about 5 minutes.

I enjoy sports but I'd much rather go to a game than watch it on TV. I don't get to do that much any more since I moved out of the city. In either case, I prefer baseball over the other options.

For the Super Bowl, I watched the national anthem because I always find that intriguing. Then I watched a little bit of the 1st quarter, some commercials, and I was done. I had important video gaming to do.

We have a minor league baseball team here that I would pay to go see. Baseball is the one sport I like to watch live. I don't care for other sports at all. Unless the Steelers are playing the Super Bowl

I enjoy going to major league baseball games, watching it on TV is boring. I rather watch football on TV

My husband and I watch football sometimes, especially when it’s our team. My husband has watched golf, but not a lot. That’s really the only sports we watch at times. I do like to watch figure skating though. That’s it.

My Aunt and Uncle use to watch golf. I always thought it was the most boring thing to watch. Kinda like bowling.

Mr Giggles watches golf on TV...usually with a beer in his hand and hard rock playing the background

I find that figure skating is more like an art form than a sport. It's harder than most sports too... just sayin. :D

I knew a girl that knocked out all of her front teeth figure skating and falling.

I watch Vikings football and while the Super Bowl was on I was mostly playing on my iPhone. I don't watch a lot of other sports as a rule and it's more rare now since I cut cable. The Olympics are an exception.

I think I watch out of tradition more than anything. I wasn't half paying attention though.

I still wonder why they have to do it on Sunday. I always imagined there were a lot of hung over people come Monday morning.

The Monday following Super Bowl is one of the most called off days in a workplace.

Checking in late on this:

When I was a kid, before the days of TV, Saturday night was Hockey Night in Canada, and there wasn't anybody I knew who didn't listen to Foster Hewitt ("He shoots, he SCORES!!!") announce the Maple Leaf hockey games.  It was ritual for us.  Although over the years I've partaken in various sports I've never particularly excelled in any of them save for marksman target shooting, and I attended some hockey games, a few Canadian football games, (never was interested in basketball) but what really got to me was baseball, and I had season's tickets to the Blue Jays home games.  Nowadays, I rarely watch sports on TV save for snooker (I used to have a table in my home) but always enjoy watching sports movies, expecially baseball ones.  However, I do watch Olympic winter sports events on TV - skating, ski jumping, curling, diving, etc.

I thought every night was hockey night in Canada? jrSmiley_91_smiley_image.gif

My Canadian family seem to make it out to be that hockey night is every night.

I find it difficult to watch sports on TV unless there's a group of us watching, I guess the social aspect helps make it interesting.  Otherwise I'll just catch the highlights later
