for me tennis,soccer,golf and hockey(good for highlights tho)
it really depends on personal taste. one person could say golf or nascar are boring, while another loves them. a person can be a huge fan of hockey, but another person could find it boring and slow as sin. therefore, it's hard to say.
if i had to pick, then I would say poker and food eating contests are ridiculously boring, and unnecessary. now before you all get your panties up in a bunch saying that those aren't sports, then my only response to that is tell that to ESPN, so they'll stop running highlights of those games. As I so don't think Poker and food eating should be deemed as sports. anyone who says differently is an idiot.
For me it's baseball, because you need to wait till every pitch for action. Any sports that are pretty active I don't mind watching, but then again I don't typically watch sports anyways.
bowling, there is absolutely no eye candy, they take AGES to bowl the damn ball and I reckon my four year old could probably beat all of them! lol
I like all of those sports, I think a sport is only boring if you're not interested.
like nascar.. I'm not interested.
I'm the opposite. I love watching tennis, golf, soccer and hockey. For me the most boring sport to watch is baseball.
Baseball for me, too. I really have tried to watch an entire game. But I do love the excitement of the World Series.
For me it is Golf.
I will never understand the pleasure in hitting something as far as possible, and then having to walk all that way to hit it again.
At least if you throw a stick for a dog it brings it back to you!
Baseball, basketball and football. I'm not someone you want to invite to a sports bar!
Women's beach volleyball.
It's horribly boring. I can't stand to watch it. But for some inexplicable reason, the Women's Beach Volleyball channel is the only channel I can get. So I'm forced to watch it. So it isn't my fault.
Nascar. Ugh....I know millions love it, but I cannot just watch cars go in circles. And Baseball is a close second. Now if I am at a Baseball game...I love it, but just not on TV.
Bowling, Bass fishing and basketball. (Unless someone is doing all three at once.)
I vote Curling. Zzzzzz
For me, tennis. Watching that ball go back and forth is not my cup of tea.
..yet to understand why society still finds any benefit from vehicles driving in circles using a limited resource ?
Can someone actually watch an entire nascar event without finishing off a case of really cheap beer in the process ..if they didn't would it still be fun to watch?
oh wait - its not a sport anyway -
I feel the same way about horse racing too.
i have to say emphatically cricket...... I hate the sound of the umpire, the game, the drunken audience. It is on for days and days and days and days and days...... believe me i have truly suffered, the men in my house and my dad seem to love it, how could they ugh???????????
I'm with you Joy - I would rather watch paint dry than watch cricket!
I agree, Especially the test matches. Although the new twenty-20 isn't that horrible.
I have been told that Cricket is 10 times more entertaining when you are watching a professional game live. I am yet to experience it though.
Traditional Cricket is going by the wayside though, slowly being replaced by Twenty Twenty, which is effectively really fast cricket which finishes in one day or something.
That innovation was certainly required! I agree with you, Cricket on the telly is..... zzzzzzzzzzzzz
Soccer & Hockey
I find motorcar/bike racing boring unless there are lots of crashes.
Darts as well, mainly as I am useless at sums and therefore don't really understand it fully.
I think with most sports, people find them boring when they do not fully understand the rules and how the game works.
For me it's these sports I hate watching:
Cross Country Three Legged Mud Races
Butt to Butt Nude Wrestling
How do people determine that these are sports.
I think I agree with you, BORING.
Hey, I love to watch tennis, cricket, F1, football, athletics, boxing. But I hate hockey and curling.
I can see why it might be an appealing game to play (for some people), but why anybody would want to watch it is completely beyond my comprehension.
I'm not a big sports person in general though. My favorite to watch is figure skating, which is a)as much about art and performance as athletic ability and b)short!
Curling! Why anyone chooses to play is beyond me. Also golf, the ruination of an otherwise pleasant walk.
Friggin cross country running.
Holy $%##^ just finish the race!
Oh, cycling sucks too.
And marathon running.
Oh, and pro wrestling.
golf -- dont like to watch it
I love all sports specially sports -- banging their bodies, rugby, football, basketball, boxing and wrestling-- is this a sports??
No one for billiards?
I hardly find sport that I don't like, somehow I always find something interesting in any sports.
Golf, baseball, and FOREIGNPRESS: SUCH a burden! ;-)
My favorite sport to watch: ROUNDBALL, BABY!!! (Basketball!!!!)
All of them. If I'm not the one playing them, I'm not interested. I've never really "gotten" watching other people do things.
I feel the same - and even worse is listening to any of the sports' commentators whose banter is impossibly stupid and whose interviews with the sports "heroes" are inane and senseless! I hate that our nation spends so frigging much on sports and sports arenas and all the accessories and the players and tv coverage. Our priorities are so messed up it is not even funny - the roads full of ruts, human services being discontinued (local senior center is shutting down - no funds), people can't get the basics for life, jobs aren't there - so what do we get? A new sports arena and center with every possible luxury and room for 100,000 fans, with malls and parking lots - state of the art lighting and score boards and teams that cost billions!
It is so insane, and yet all the men I've ever known and lots of women, feel that one of their best characteristics is that they are "loyal" fans - even when they've had 3 marriages, run out on their own children and aging parents, can't hold a job, stink of booze and cigarrettes - they are good, salt of the earth people, who are LOYAL FANS! oh p.u. and barf - I am sick thinking of it!
And if you DARE to not be a big FAN and refuse to go to their fan parties and get stinkin drunk and drive home inebriated and spend your kids college money on season tickets and sports fan parties - if you DARE to refuse to do that, you're practically unAMERICAN and definitely UNCOOL!
Curling! Just what is interesting about throwing a hugh weight along a sheet of ice and brushing the ice. I'm not joking when I say I'd rather watch paint dry.
Watching sports like Golf, Tennis and Snooker kills me to death! But what I dislike even more is listening to people talking about it.
Sports pundits drive me nuts. Even if they are talking about sports that I like. I'd rather put some tunes on instead. I do like a bit of motor-sport with an electro soundtrack!
I would definitely say Nascar. I guess watching cars go around and around in circles just doesn't do it for me. I used to actually like it, but then they started their playoff system, which essentially renders the first 2/3rds of their season meaningless.
I'll go with Soccer as a close second. I know it is the most popular sport in the world, but just not my thing in terms of entertainment value.
Lawn bowls, Marathons, Curling, Basketball and definitely Croquet. I enjoy golf though.
noticed someone posted pro wrestling. Wrestling is not a sport, it's entertainment.
Wrestling is a lot bigger than WWE and the others.
It's an olympic sport.
It's also a martial art much like karate, judo, etc. and yes it's used by professional fighters.
nascar and golf
Table setting competitions.
what? how can you say that? there's the anxious moment when the contestant places the last spoon! the moment when a genius puts the flower arrangement just slightly off center! Oh the thrills!
Well, I know-- better than a lot of the ESPN stuff.
I have never heard of this.
at the risk of being self promotional-- read my hub-- or just look at the pictures.
One sport that is not boring is competitive eating. That is some good stuff right there.

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...
