    I know alot of y'all are into football, basketball, baseball,...ect. Thats cool. But I myself hate all that. So just to see if anyone else feels the same, is there anyone else who can't stand to watch games on TV ??? Going to it live is one thing, but it bores the sh!t out of me on TV. Very annoying when a game go's into overtime and cuts into a program I want to watch. I also think the post game shows are a waste of time. What really SUCKED was the days befor cable when football was on every station !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    well at the risk of getting flamed /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    i agree 100%, i have better things to do, than to sit around and watch tv, especially sports, have been to a couple of pro games and loved it, and love going to my kids games, /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    although i have watched a few superbowls, even had a couple of bowl parties when i was in the military, but passed out before the game /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I can watch games when they involve a team I care about, e.g. an IU game (where i go) or a Cubs baseball game (i'm a die-hard). those are fine to watch on TV, but i can't understand spending the whole day in front of the tube just to watch all the games. that bores the crap out of me, plus it makes me feel like i've wasted the day. going to live games is awesome, though. i love those! i'm just not a big fan of TV in general

    I have developed a generalized disdain for television. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif Aside from the opportunity-cost of time spent idly staring at the screen, the toxic levels of unrelenting media bombardment have grown to <font color="red"> cognitively-crippling </font color>levels . The bulk of the content offered by local stations and cable/satelite companies, just doesn’t justify the exposure to the
    ~Corporate- Marketing- Virus~. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    If you know all the words to the “Rice-A-Roni” song, or the statement “manly...yes...but I like it too!”strikes a familiar chord, your meta-cognitive health is already in peril. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Now...TV without commercials...”Okay”. “Sports without commercials...why-the-hell-not!” However, daily doseages should be thoughtfully monitored.

    Having said that...”Where is my damn remote”!

    I don't have much time to watch TV. I dont even keep up with sports. I just dont have time, but then I've never been a sports person myself (possibly cause I suck at playing anything). So, I'm using the No Time excuse. Yet I seem to be here alot.

    The other night my computer froze, so I went outside and worked on one of the trucks. The next night I was 85 miles away from my computer, and I ended up putting some 8" rear springs under my Blazer. Amazing that I "can" be productive at times. I "should" spend more of my computer time working on the trucks...maybe tomorrow.

    NHL - love it, hate the coverage here

    NBA - can't stand it .. not interesting until the last 2 minutes. If I was a basketball fan I'd watch college

    NFL - that's sunday, flipping between football and the race

    baseball I can watch the world series, but that's about it

    Well, on the other end of the spectrum; I'll watch damn near any sport (football, basketball, golf, hockey, baseball-in that order) on TV, at any time of the day. If I can't find a game, I watch Sportscenter, ESPN Classic, FoxSportsNet, whatever. I eat, sleep, and breathe sports. Watching the Rams pummel the Cardinals as I type this. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'm one of those who care less to watch the sports on t.v.

    I only like to watch sports when its the championship game.

    Watching the games every week after week is like watching re-runs. Its the same thing over and over. At least with a championship game, you will have one winner out of all the teams.
