RE: Football or Football or Futbol or Soccer or..
I find American football ridiculously boring... all the stopping and stuff is so annoying. JUST PLAY GOD DAMN YOU!!!

Although, I don't really enjoy watching sports anyway. Bores the shit out of me.

I can appreciate that. I think if you don't have a horse in the race, per se, the true enjoyment of spectator sports can never be achieved. I can get in to any sport if you give me a team to root for.

Yeah, I don't have a reason to back anyone in any sport.
Just because I was born and live in a certain place doesn't mean I should support the assholes who play for the local football teams. I'd much rather just play a sport myself. I've never really understood why people get so worked up over a single team or player.

I think the reason people get worked up is because they talk shit! Lol, I've found that as long as I don't go around making promises for teams that they can't deliver, it's not at all as easy to get worked up. Watching The Cowboys play football goes way back to my childhood. I have memories of that stadium, hanging from the goal post, going to the games with my dad, and watching them every Sunday. Sometimes my dad would sneak me out of church with him to go to the diner around the corner to watch the game while my mom and sister were in church. I love the game, I play it on a recreational level, but love to watch it played by professionals because I appreciate how difficult it is. I back the team that my memories of the game are interwoven with. I want them to win, but I agree with you that it is certainly not the end of the world if they don't. Sadly, that has been the case as of late Wink

That's the reason why 99%+ of Man Utd fans have never even been to Manchester, let alone lived there. Big Grin
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'

Funny. That's one of the few English Soccer Teams I'm familiar with. There's only a handful. I'm not even sure how to spell a few of them.
Man. U is kinda like our Yankees. Lots of "fans", very few Fans.

I am an American who knows next to nothing about sports. The only sports I have ever showed mild interest in were men's gymnastics, men's diving, and men's figure skating.
