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.
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.
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 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!
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.
