    Why Should I?

    I played a few games in elementary school because most others did, but I never had interest in any sports. Why should I? I do not care what score anyone gets. The only game I love to play is Chess, but no time for that very often. marvin

    One Sport, Sort Of, Sometimes

    I'm an SCA member (check out http://www.SCA.org) and I sometimes herald (announce) the simulated sword fighting and rapier fighting we do for various purposes.  (Note that it's the safest full-contact sport you can imagine, what with wooden swords and real armor, or...

    In My Childhood...

    When I was younger I was heavily into sports. I enjoyed watching Football on television. For a time I was also into hockey, but I didn't know anyone else who was, so sometimes I'd miss real great games. I use to play a lot of football (mostly 2 hand touch) and basketball...

    Sometimes I Am Interested In Men Who Have a Small Interest Though...

    I will tolerate a West Ham football game to talk to him about it later or watch a Rally Car leg in Switzerland or something. Small compromise yields smiles, so I do it for laughs.

    No Intrest In Sports

    Well, Almost No Interest

    I do know many of the rules for several different sports, but I don't play any, and I almost never watch.  The people I run with don't seem to care, either.  Oddly enough, I find large chunks of "It's Only a Game" on NPR to be interesting--or perhaps it's no...

    I Do Not Watch, Listen To, Talk About, Or Read About Sports.

    If you enjoy  watching, listening to reading about and talking about sports, good for you. I do not. I think it is a complete waste of time. I would rather read, spend time with my wife, have sex, watch a movie, mow the lawn, exercise, or do anything else to occupy my time...

    More Imporant Things To Do

    In my 67 years, I had little interest in any sports or games except chess, and rarely any time for that. There are always more important things to do. I don't want any of my life wasted. That may explain why I also won't stay long on this web site to read and reply to too many...

    I don't understand the rules to any sports other than golf. I can't throw a frisbee, a football, dribble a basketball, or anything else. I am athletically challenged and that's fine with me.

    Touchdown = My Head Hitting the Pillow

    The last game I went to was a baseball game. I don't know who the opposing team was and have no idea who won. I was in the 10th row behind home plate and didn't watch a bit of the game. I am now being forced to watch football on TV with my husband. The only thing saving my...

    'spot' On

    Australia is a great sporting nation. Australians are great sport followers. Australian football (AFL) is like a religion. I'm neither an Australian nor religious. DF

    Amusing To My Dog

    My little dog is amused by chasing balls around because she's a small breed dog with a playful nature and a predetor instinct. I enjoy watching her play fetch because she's cute and fuzzy. I would think that humans (especially adult ones) would be able to find more constructive...
