NFL is too popular IMO and boring in my opinion. I'll watch any kind of soccer. From the Mexican Primera (usually if I get the Spanish channels. Hate Club America!) to the Deutsche Bundesliga to the English Premier League.
I love baseball because that's what I wanted to be growing up. I wanted to be a baseball player and play for the Oakland Athletics. lol Still wish I could though.
Wings and Sharks have had a decent rivalry the last 5 years or so. Chants of "Hoooowwwwww-aaaarrrrrrrd" when they play in San Jose are fresh in my mind. Let me also say that Doc Emerick for NHL on NBC is the best sportscaster in the business today. He is absolutely fantastic; he knows when to talk, and even better, when not
to talk. He makes every play exciting, even a simple clearing out of the puck.
NBA is kinda terrible. It's a well-known secret that they just don't call travelling anymore unless the guys takes about 17 steps. Superstars get a bit of "competitive edge" from the officials. That said, the San Antonio Spurs (my team) are one of the finest organizations in pro sports. Classy people from top to bottom, a very strong "team" mentality. All coach Pop does is win games and not gave two damns what other people think of his decisions. I loved it when they won the title last year.
I wouldn't call the NFL dull, but it's too offensive for me now. Rough, hard-hitting defensive games are my favorite. The "game of the century" two or three years ago in college football (LSU 9 Alabama 6 in overtime) was one of my favorite games I ever watched. It wasn't that the offenses were bad; the defenses were that good.
But LSU's offense was pretty bad.
As for Baseball, I actually know a great deal about baseball, and if you got pick-up game on the local field or popped MLB The Show 2015
into the Playstation, I'll happily play some baseball with you. Watching it is just a bit meh.
I wanted to be a baseball player the year I played little league. I played right field. That should tell you how skilled I was.
