I love Tennis and play it. I love watching football, tennis, hockey, baseball, MMA, and skateboarding/snowboarding/bmx, etc. The only sport I don't particularly love watching is basketball. I never got into it as much as I probably should being a southern gal.
I'm like this too, that was why I was never good at playing football (soccer) because I'd always hog the ball and insist on making the goal. I thought everyone else on the team wasn't capable, I'm not a team player... so that's why I play tennis. I try to avoid doubles as well, because if the other person misses the ball I get super ****ed, then end up playing the game 2 on 1 and telling the other person to just sit there and pretend they're playing.
I grew up in a state that only had a basketball team, so I've been a Portland Trail Blazers fan my entire life. Haven't kept up with them lately since they're not a spotlight team so it's hard to catch individual games.
Since I lived in Philadelphia I also picked up baseball, which I never thought I could come to enjoy watching. Seeing the Phillies win in 2008 was just so much fun. They are one of the oldest teams in the American baseball league (started around 1880 I think) and they had the worst track record of every team. The city literally became a different place after they took home a title. Before that, they were booed in their home stadium more often than not.
I don't actively watch either one, but I'll catch a game every once in a while and check how the season's going every few days on the internet.
The other majorly syndicated sport in the US, (American) Football, does not interest me at all. I may have had a team, but they decided to let a dog-fighting pile of filth be their quarterback. If I was ever going to be a fan of the Philadelphia Eagles, it would have been in spirit only.
I care a lot about sports! I actually care tons about it! And to elaborate more; I fricken' hate sports. That's the general rule, but there are a few rare exceptions. I love the men's world cup in football, but only the world cup.
