    SOCCER!!!! and dammit, yes, i'm american, still love the game, i've played it all my life. it's one of the only sports i can actually watch, without bein bored stiff, that and hockey, but soccer is imho the best sport in the world. (oh, and even though i'm american, i actually despise american football)
  3. Have to go with hockey because I'm Canadian, and having played every other sport on the list I can say that hockey is definitely the most challenging and in my opinion, the most fun. The fact that it is played on ice adds a whole other dimension to the game that none of the other sports have, it makes the game much faster and also "the coolest game on earth" :cool: .

    Motorcycle Road Racing:D

    Of the big four, Hockey!

  7. I'm a Cross Country geek, so I guess that falls under the track and field category. I really want to start running again, in my prime I was getting 18 min 3 miles (I'd like to think that is pretty damn good!), now I'd be lucky if I could even make it through the whole 3 miles!

    Just about anything that looks good on TV and don't get me so excited I spill the beer... :D

    Kidding aside, when watching: Motorcycle road racing is high on the list, but also track and field and hockey.

    When participating: I *used to* do a lot of sports (running, badminton, squash, minimoto mc roadracing, indoor soccer, indoor bandy) - but nowadays I'm happy if I get an hour of jogging or inlines done every now and then. :)
  11. I voted cricket. Why? because i am Australian and well we are the best.. *ok gloating over*

    For other aussies, there's should be the option for Aussie Rules Football. I hate football.

    If you have time to waste watching TV, of people making way too much money (football) playing a stupid game of any sport IMO. You need to drop the remote and start working on your chops as a bass player/musician.
    I hate sports and think they are a silly waste of everyones time and money. When I was in highschool I gave football a try in my freshman year. In the beginning, double sessions (HATED IT!) after our 1st session we would boogie back up to the garage to play music.
  13. My favourite sport is bodybuilding, not so much a sport as a subculture and lifestyle, really. War canoe is fun too, 15 people in a 30 foot boat racing for 500 meters, but I haven't done that since I was 16. War canoe race pic here: http://www.banookcanoeclub.com/img/roz0204f.jpg

    And I grew up on baseball and hockey, going to the baseball hall of fame was like a pilgrimage for me and my dad.

    I kindof know how you feel, those whinny stars making millions of millions of millions of dollars for doing something they love makes pissed, and the fact there always whining for more makes me even more pissed.:(

    I don't think sports are a waste of time though...When you actually go out and play, you can have fun, excersise, blahblah, and all that other stuff...You say sports is a waste of time while others (not me) may say Bassin' is a waste of time...

    Besides who said you can't play sports and improve you bassinability.

  15. First off, I think we are talking about favorite sports to play, not watch. Second, you are weird. ;)

    What? No Basketball. If anything it does help improve finger strength..;) The greatest sport ever IMHO.

  17. A tough decision, but I chose soccer just barely over hockey. Soccer is pure finesse and skill, beautiful to watch and fun to play too. Of course I haven't played nearly as much since this bass playing started...

    BASKETBALL!!! How could I forget to put basketball on the list?

    Ah well, I'm an idiot...
  19. Hey, we'll see about that :). I believe there is the small matter of the Ashes coming up this winter, you'll have to win that if you want claim to be the best (and even if you win it, we'll just blame home advantage :p).

    My vote was for rugby, though, closely followed by soccer (I hate calling it that) and then cricket.
