    I Don't Watch Sports On Tv

    I don't care about football, never played it enough to learn. I liked playing soccer, I like playing sports games but I just don't care about which team did what to who or where, it's never held my interest. Long story short I prefer to do rather than watch. I get very bored very...

    No Idea Who's Winning

    Alot of guys assume that because I'm one of them I follow the winning team and the latest score of who's playing.  But I haven't a clue since I don't follow sports and couldn't care less about what team is in the lead or who just got traded.  The girls I dated (before I...

    Not Very Sports Minded

    Its amazing how different I am from my other two younger brothers. Growing up I played games and tried some sports. I tried finding my niche, something I could be good at, but never could find it. I tried wrestling early around 3 and 4th grade. Basketball when I hit 6 foot in 8th...

    I Like Sports

    I like sports but I don't go out of my way to watch them. I do watch them if I have nothing else going on.

    I Enjoy Watching Sports

    but I don't have a favorite team anymore because I used to when I was younger however, it was because of certain players or a certain coaches personality or something like that. Now, I'm not too interested in 'following' sports because everyone's getting traded and I don't want...

    It's a Touch Backwards, If You Ask Me.

    Like the first few words of another poster's story, I think that taking part in sports can be quite fun (OUTSIDE of school -- PE = Doom) but watching sports is a whole different/boring thing.  Furthermore, I CANNOT, just simply CANNOT understand why a person...

    I Couldn't Care Less About Sports

        I really don't care. I'm not totally un-athletic, but I'm also not that good at most sports. I think it's really boring to watch other people throw balls around.     People put so much value into sports too. I mean, I can see how they'd be fun...

    Rock Not Jock

    When I was a kid I wasn't very good at sports and participated by necessity and not out of desire. I was the kid in high school with long hair, a stack of LP's under my arm, a Rolling Stones lips logo sewn on my @ss pocket, and the aroma of cannabis about me. I ...

    I Like Sports But Not To Watch

    I've played basketball for years and I used to play soccer, I play tennis, I golf-I pretty much will play any sport. But I hate watching them, I'd much rather be up on my feet than sitting on a couch watching other people play sports.

    Don't See The Point.

    When I try to follow sports - like hockey for example - I find myself getting bored.  I mean, it's a bunch of guys on the ice wacking some circular thing around until it gets in to the net on the other side.  I mean ... does anyone else see the problem...

    Dont Follow Team Sports

    I prefer individual sports, martial arts/combatives like Ultimate Fighting, Extreme Cage Fighting, etc. I will watch an occasional team sport, but outside of pro beach volleyball, have no idea who is who on the field.

    It's Not My Thing.

    I have little to no interest in sports. It's more fun to play than to watch. Watching people run about and do things is boring for me.

    I have always had zero interest in sports

    both playing and spectator sports. Personally I think Kent Hovind said it best as not being able to understand why people get so worked up over watching a bunch of overpaid grown men fighting over a single ball when they all make enough money to go and buy their own. I can...
