Are there any sports you simply don't "get?"

Recommended Posts

Soccer has never appealed to me, but I do my best to care a tad if something significant happens. 

 

Boxing is another.  So much drama and buildup to some big fights, only to have no affordable way to watch it and the results are almost always never worth it.  I have no interest in watching boxing outside of when they breach pop culture. Love boxing movies, however. 

 

MMA/UFC is similar.  It was cool watching Rousey in her prime/collapse, but that was all my interest ever caught.  

 

Rugby/cricket have never appealed in any fashion.  Track and field, pole vault, shot put, meh.  

 

I’ll watch bowling, golf, and poker all night though.  Not because I know the competitors, but because I enjoy the production and easygoing nature of the games.

Wrestling. The actual kind. Just two people rolling around on a mat. Woo?

 

It makes more sense if you live in an area of the country where high school and college wrestling is a big deal, like I did when I lived in Iowa.

It's as pure a physical competition as running or swimming, what is not to get?
