    No, I don't watch any sports.

    If it weren't for the billions of dollars illegally wagered on basketball, there would be millions of Americans of trying to get into Redress's home to watch his toenails growing.

    I won't watch, when I can avoid it. I find it mildly boring.

    Baseball isn't exactly jam packed with action.

    The only entertaining aspect of soccer is when a goal is scored. The player who does it & the announcer. I've for years said that sports like basketball & football need to implement the exuberance shown in soccer.

    I like watching the World Cup. Soccer is more about strategy and planning more than brute strength or just scoring. If you look at it like that, it's one of the most interesting sports to watch. And IMHO, that's why it's the most popular sport in the world, second only to sex.

    FYI, the Economist has a good piece on why the three biggest nations in the world, China, India and the US have essentially no football representation.

    Hahaha how does being American mean you can't enjoy a footy match. Nationalism is a hell of a drug.

    I see you basketball and raise you golf, truly a boring sport to watch outside of the last three holes. And yes I will watch as many games of the World Cup as I can and by god I am even an American.
