    To play or watch? I am very lazy so I will go with watch (Do would be cycling i suppose).

    I would have to go with Formula 1 (I know, I know, boring cars following each other but i like it).

    Either that or International Rugby (Even though we Scots suck at it recently)

    ... In fact why am I bothering to post this - I am just setting myself up for a whole heap of abuse and (sometimes) witty insults

    Responses to your suggestions:
    a) soccer (too many posers and actors - "oh oh, I'm in so much pain - what? I got a freekick? OMG my broken leg seems to have healed, I'll take it!!")
    b) Basketball (it's ok but on very rarely in the UK so I dont see enough to follow it)
    c) baseball (see B.)
    d) racket sports (the womens is good )
    e) golf (i do like to watch the big championships but only if a scotsman is doing well lol)
    f) swimming/water sports (see D.)

    Well, cricket is the best sport ever invented, but I'd actually say my favourite these days is golf.


    Everyone can watch it and (almost) everyone can play it.
    It's a great excuse to get out of the office and ditch work (and be sponsored by your company in the case of golf days).
    It's decent exercise too, plus you can catch some sun, while clinching deals with potential clients.
    You can successfully play it until you are OLD.

    There's just nothing bad about it.

    1) Tennis
    2) Rugby League and Rugby Union tied. (For Americans this is similar to American Football, but with out all the amour)
    4) Cricket (For Americans this is a more sophisticated version of rounde..... oops I meant Baseball)
    5) Football

    I find the American sports a bit dull to be honest, and trust me I have REALLY tried to get into them. I used to be a big, fan of American Football, the 49 ers era when Joe Montana was at the helm, and Ronnie Lott was bashing people in the secondary.

    Baseball........I just don't get the fascination, and again I have really tried, again the Ken Griffy, Randy Johnson era.

    Basketball.........Dull and I have even recently seen the Knicks v Pistons live at MSG, again really dull. Tried to get into it during the 90's when the Bulls were playing Jazz in the finals.

    Ice Hockey is possibly the best out of the US sports.

    Tennis and baseball, I have my moments with the NBA and NFL.

    1. Baseball
    2. Hockey
    3. NFL Football
    4. Football/Soccer
    5. Basketball

    However, of these five sports, football/soccer and hockey are the most exciting to watch live.

    I love baseball the most...but for one event you can't beat a great prize fight.
