My favorite is HOCKEY! Any kind....ice/roller/street. I was a ice hockey goalie in high school and still skate when the ponds are frozen over, like the last couple of weeks. I play roller in the summer with my three sons in an enclosed court. I love baseball as well and was a 2nd baseman/catcher in high school. I love the spring when I get to take the boys to the grounds to get ready for Babe Ruth/Little league tryouts. Don't care much for basketball, too much scoring to keep up with and I know I'll get a ration for saying I don't like football because it's BORING! It's the reverse of hockey....they play for 6 seconds then take 5 minutes to set back up again! Bruins fans haven't had much to get excited about since the Cam Neely days and the Red Sox.......1918! I think 2000 will be their year!

Football, street hockey, and paintball. Paintballing is by far my favorite(and most expensive). Can't wait to get some warmer temps, I only play when it is warm(50+ degrees).

I play a Japanese sport called Kendo. It's basically Japanese-style fencing. I'm not really a fan of American sports though.

Being a Canadian, I naturally enjoy hockey. Although I'm now 44, <sigh>, I still play at a recreational level. Interestingly enough, I play on a blind ice hockey team. Yes, you read correctly, BLIND. (I used capital letters for those of you who may be visually impaired. ) Now before I start fielding questions about how do I drive my Fiero, etc, let me add that my vision is fine. On a blind hockey team, there can be two sighted players on the ice (per team) at any time, playing any position except goal. The puck is hollow, made of metal, and has a ball bearing inside which makes the puck sound like a cowbell when it's moving. Of course, when it stops moving, it's quiet, and hence the need for some sighted players to be on the ice. We just had a short demonstration a week ago between periods at GM Place here in Vancouver at a Canuck - Black Hawks game. It's the second time we've done that there. Geez, are those TV lights ever bright when you're on the ice!

Gokart, you probably already know that Cam Neely grew up in this area (Vancouver) and was also traded by the Canucks to Boston.

I guess my favorite sport is Winston Cup racing and drag racing. Pretty much anything that goes fast, I like to watch.

Patrick I gotta try that blind hockey sometime! It sounds pretty interesting and fun! I'll look for you the next time the Bruins play the Cunucks. Cam Neely (plus 87 1st round pick) for Barry Pederson was the biggest steal in NHL history. I had my hopes up too high last year when he tried to make a comeback and just couldn't. I had to go to a wedding reception a few months back in Boston and there he was walking around downtown with a golf club over his shoulder! He does alot of charity work and has a foundation for children with diseases called the "Cam Neely House". He's a bigger person off ice than he is on. I hope the B's retire his no.8 soon.

Gokart, glad to hear that Cam is "a bigger person off ice than he is on". How many modern day professional athletes (active or retired) can you say positive things like that about?

Playing - I still play softball. Bowl, 2 nights per week & golf occasionally.

Coach - I coach my girls in slo-pitch softball. They will make the switch to fast-pitch when they reach 13. I created a slo-pitch batting cage in my basement for them. I hung a canvas tarp from the I beam, put 2 smaller ones overhead, to protect the joists, and put a 6' piece of angle steel, over the I beam, to act as a track for the ball. 1 stands behind to load the balls as the other hits. It works great. I also umpire fast and slo-pitch all summer. It's a good source of Fireo needs income.

Watch - Of course the NFL is my favorite. I have been going to Bengal games since I was 12(I'm 42 now). I try to make at least 2 road games a year. Even though they are not very good, I still enjoy it. We try and go to Reds games although I used to go alot before the strike of 95. If we get Ken Griffey Jr, we will go more. Not big on basketball and hockey. My wife is happy about that.

Gokart, are the SOX fans over the 75 series yet?

Football - college and professional. I never played but I sure like to watch. Of course watching the Packers these days is getting to be like watching the Cubs is for people in Chicago - sometimes painful.

I'm into competitive pistol shooting although I wouldn't call my scores competitive. Due to sore elbows and shoulders etc. I now stick to .22 indoors, used to be big into hand gun sihouettes and pin matches.

We're well over 75 BENGEL4! It's 86 that hurts still. I liked the Reds almost as much as the sox back in 75. Hard not to with Bench, Rose, Morgan, Concepcion. In 86 we REALLY should've won (thank you Bill Buckner). Our slogan song goes: I....HATE NEW YORK!

I go to the 12 Hours Sebring every year to watch. (drink beer & camp out)
This year it is the weekend before the Daytona Fiero Weekend.
If Iím not playing in a sport I cannot watch it. It drives me crazy. (until I have children)
Is eating a sport? I think I would be in the PRO status by now.
Sports I like to play are football, basketball, and roller hockey.
Baseball is boring unless you're the catcher or pitcher, needs a pitch clock.

Gokart- I was rooting for the SOX in the 86 series. I can't stand the Mets or any other sports team from New York. The Mets that year were very arrogant, with their home run curtain calls and the smirks on their faces. Do you remember that woman who sat behind home plate. She would make a rolling motion with her arms whenever the SOX were up to bat. It drove me crazy. You gotta feel for Billy Bucs. A great career and all he is remembered for is that error. Cooperstown will be fun to watch this year with Tony Perez and Carlton Fisk being enshrined. It is the 25th anniversary of that great World Series. I was a senior in high school then, boy does time fly.

Cooter,

I would have to agree with you. I'm in to Winston Cup and sometimes watching BGN Races. I like all kinds of racing, but primarily stock car, and sprint car, and indy car, and anything else that goes fast.

I guess I like them all!

The only thing I watch regularly (in season) is the NFL. I watch extreme sports occasionally. This weekend I watched a snowmobile race that was pretty neat.

I used to play paintball, but havent had the time for that in a while.

I enjoy going to Appalachian State Football and basketball games, like to watch college and pro football (i'm a Dolphin Fan, so attendance is a bit difficult, but I do go to Panther games occaisionally). I also like hockey (Edmonton Oiler's fan... see above reason), and any kind of motor racing EXCEPT NASCAR! I cannot stand nascar, it requires no talent whatsoever! I have seen drivers eat big macs and smoke ciggs, while driving... come on now!

I am on the list for tickets to the USGP at Indy, and will attend at leat one cart race and one American Le Mans series race this year (again the logistics thing, makes it difficult).

As for sports that I enjoy doing myself... I love to Mountain Bike, sport fish and play Gran Tourismo 2 on the playstation!

Tennis: I'm a USTA rated 4.5 league player. I usually play about 3 times a week, the weather out here in California lets us play outdoors year around. Best player I every played was some guy at Club Med who kicked my butt in 2 sets. Turned out he had once played in the US Open. He played at a much different level than you average player. :-)

Racing and competitive rifle shooting. I've race mostly circle tracks, but in the last 4-5 years I've gotten more interested in road courses (though I'm not particularly good on them). As for shooting, mostly extreme long range stuff(500-1,000 yards).

being still in high school, sports are a pretty big thing. I play linebacker and some wideout for the school. I also play rugby, which is an amazing sport. almost went to ireland this year, but had a craving for a snowmobile, so my ireland trip got postponed for 3 years.

I tried out for wrestling and track in high school, but I sucked. Finally "lettered" in tennis, but I don't play anymore. I love watching hockey and am a fan of the local Topeka minor league team.

GW, I'm just being silly. You called it table tennis, so I called it ping-pong. Someone's already mentioned we're all suffering from cabin fever.
