:no: I don't like sports.  I think they all suck.

You turn to see her, but don\'t find a thing

FOOTBALL, FOOTBALL, FOOTBALL ...

Yes, the crazy American kind. I just can't seem to ever get enough.  It's so bad that I actually record games so that when it's the off season I can have some football to watch.  The NFL Network is a godsend to me.  :D

I don't know if poker is a sport or not.  I mean what constitutes a sport?  Players (check), Rules (check), Scoring (check), Winner/Loser (check) ... well, yeah I guess I'd have to say that poker is a sport.  :D

Texas Hold 'Em of course is THE best poker around, followed closely by plain old Black Jack.  We had casinos here (in Oklahoma) for a long time, but just recently they have now allowed Black Jack and Texas Hold 'Em.  It's cool because I don't even have to leave the state to have numerous casinos to visit.

And I agree that baseball has got to be the most boring thing to watch, ever, maybe even worse than those fishing shows on PBS.  rotfl ...

no cricket is a total waste of time unless we are beating Australia which happens about as often as an eclipse of the sun .

ever country has a stupid pointless sport , unless you are American who have loads , they only play sports nobody else does then call themselves world champions when they win :chuckle:

the World Series in baseball springs to mind , how many other countries take part in that one ?

In France we have a national sport : La Pétanque !!  We are unbeatable :D

Pétanque (pronounced [pe.tɑ̃k] in French) is a form of boules where the goal is to throw metal balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet (jack). The game is normally played on hard dirt or gravel, but can also be played on grass or other surfaces. Sandy beaches are not suitable. Similar games are bocce and bowls.

Pétanque is generally associated with southern France, particularly Provence, whence it originates. It is the most played sport in Marseille. The casual form of the game of Pétanque is played by about 17 million people in France (mostly during their summer vacations).

Pétanque is reputed to have been invented in 1907 in the town of La Ciotat near Marseilles as a less physically-demanding form of jeu provençal. Physical effort was reduced by shortening the length of the pitch by roughly half and replacing a moving delivery with a stationary one. The name is derived from the term pés tanqués, which in the Provençal language means "stuck feet", because in Pétanque the feet have to remain fixed together within a (small) circle.

I'd rather A.C. Milan. However, Del Piero is one of my favourite players. :D
