I've been hooked on tennis since I was 7. IT's GREAT DRAMA......to me anyway.

I thought I'd never watchthe CFL but two seasons ago, I caught several games on MSG here in New York and have watched it now and again since.

Hockey - first watched during 2002-03 playoffs. Got hooked.

Baseball - first watched during 2003-04 playoffs (GO BOSOX!). Got hooked.

Football - first watched during 2004 Grey Cup and 2005 NFL playoffs. Got hooked.

Wrestling - Yeah yeah yeah, I know, "It's not a sport." But still, Cena > All Others.

Being from the South, normally we have no idea what hockey is. But I remember watching the Dallas-Buffalo Stanley Cup series, and ever since then I've been hooked on PLAYOFF hockey. Don't care for the season that much, but the playoffs in hockey captivate me. So that's the main and only reason why I miss hockey

Still can't beat curling though! Seriously, it's addictive as crack. You sit down to watch a few minutes of a bunch of people throw stones down a rink, and before you know it, three hours have gone past.

Other than that, I'll watch tournament poker when it's on, and wrestling is good from time to time. My boy Cena is da man, btw!

Footy

Rugby

Those were two I didn't have an opinion about until I got fox sports world and fell in love with both of them.

Now Fox Sports World will become Fox Soccer Channel. ARGH!

Speaking of soccer, that was a sport I absolutly hated in HS. I was a baseball player and there is some kind of rivalry between those sports for some reason. then I became friends with soem female soccer players in college and got hooked on it. I was the teams "superfan" stayed up late to watch the US in the world cup and even played a little indoor soccer my senior year. Imagine a 250lb former offensive lineman playing soccer, and its amusing. I scored goals in my first game (the goalie misplayed a ball and I accidently kicked it in) and my last game (a ball hit my shin gaurd and went in) Both were quite humorous. I got decent at playing defender and passing, but never could kick hard very accurately. Which was suprising cause I used to be able to kick field goals pretty good.

Yeah, I remember watching the World Curling Championships (or whatever they're called) a few months ago. It was Sweden vs. Germany, I believe. I remember flipping through the channels and being like...curling? what?! Then I started watching it just to see what exactly curling was, and ended up watching the whole rest of the match, which was like 30 minutes.

Ice Skating or should I say figure skating. Just kidding.

Gaelic Football, my relatives in Ireland send us the Gaelic Football games, specifically Kerry (County in Southwest Ireland). It's a soccer, rugby, team hand ball mixed together. Good action on all the time.
