Sports enthusiasts - what is your favorite sport of all time and why?


I remember growing up watching every sport known to man because my Dad loved sports so much, especially baseball. However, since being married to a man quite opposite of my Dad, who is not such a sports enthusiast, except for college football, but only the rivalry between Alabama and Auburn game ... I do find myself missing watching baseball, boxing and other sports with my Dad. However, this question is not limited to team sports and can include hiking, etc. So, just curious what is your favorite sport ever and why?

    Hi John, wow, ice hockey, how exciting indeed. Thank you for sharing here in your great answer! My son played roller hockey here in the south, where it is unusual to play, but he loved it and he rounded up his own street hockey.

    Hi Dear Lawrence, thank you for sharing here. I have never heard of that phrase, "...a game for thugs played by gentlemen." How interesting.

    Oh, Genna, I spent many hours entranced with the figure skaters and just in awe of their grace and strength. My mother would join in then, as would my Dad too LOL, hence he loved ALL sports. I am enjoying relaxing a bit. Hope you are too!

    Wow, Andrews, you are an all-around sports participant for sure! I will have to look up a couple of these here you have shared. Our football and soccer are two totally different sports. I love soccer... my son played when he was so small. Thanks!

    Hi Phyllis, I could watch it every day too! LOL, yes, that would be a great break. It is so mesmerizing to me and to be able to pick someone up while spinning around on ice is a miracle in my book!

    Hi Dear Ven, thank you so much for sharing your passion here for Cricket. I am so glad you are able to watch the matches now. Yes, marriage and jobs do take up a lot of time. Blessings

    Hi PhoenixV, thank you for answering. Yes, I can understand about it not being the same as days gone by with our favorites out of the game for sure. We do watch the college football too.

    Wow, Tim, great share here with all of your favorite sports over the years! I will have to admit about loving fast cars and say that I even wanted to be a racecar driver when I was younger LOL. Hope you find time to enjoy your favs more.

    Hi Dear Lea, LOL, well, I can understand your reasons for not liking said sports ...I haven't watched them in so long that I forgot about the spitting. I went through a spell of watching NASCAR too, and it is understandable to be upset him changing.

    Hi word55, I do love baseball but don't watch it much anymore without my dad around. How exciting about being in the dugout! Maybe you did indeed. Thank you for sharing here. God bless you.
