Soccer and Hockey.

AND

AFL and NFL is NOT a "Sport"; it is a "League"
"Basket Ball" is one word; as Basketball.

Thanks

Who play them? Ah!! I remember, isn't it played by bunch of thugs who take drugs to get into hall of fame? Well there are some exceptions. but I say on behalf of the super stars.

Baseball is not an olympic sport (reason they donot meet the Olympic drug policy and MLB has notified Olympic committee that they will not change their rules) thus not included.

Hockey should be categorized as field hockey or ice hockey. Two different sports. (Jointly they are in the second position now :)

Yes, NFL is a league but represents the sports.

FOOTBALL

- Brazil, Manchester United, Mohamedan -

:fanflag:

March 24, 2006, 10:05 AM
Football (Soccer for you rednecks):

Mohamedan, Brothers' Union, Arsenal, AC Milan, Ajax Amsterdam
I hate Manchester United, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, and Juventus.

Hockey: NHL, WHL, SEL, AHL

Chess: Whoever said it's a boring sport, hasn't played or watched Blitz games.

Tennis: Federer is God. Sharapova is.... you get the idea.

Baseball: MLB only. I hate the Yankees.

F1 : I used to be an avid follower not too long ago, but now I only follow it occassionally.

Basketball: Enjoy playing it but never really followed it.

On a different note, I was watching Real Time with Bill Maher the other day and Bill was interviewing the legendary Pete Rose and he asked an interesting question. I'm paraphrasing here: Pete, when you look at the top Baseball players, it's all Hernandez, Hernandez, Garcia, Martinez, and then Hernandez again. The Blacks have taken over Basketball already. So, what does the White man play now? I don't really have a joke or a point here. I just thought it was funny :D

Tigers_eye
March 24, 2006, 10:26 AM
It is funny, because that was the only sport the whitemen had untouchable Icons Maris and Ruth. Now they can only ponder on past or be second fiddle to the the Hernandaz'es. Soon ichiroes will take over the second spot.

I never had to follow any other sport after cricket, cause I never felt the need to.

But since this thread is about one's favourite sports outside/after cricket, then I guess this is my list:
For watching;
Tennis
Golf
Rugby
For playing;
Volleyball
Table Tennis
Kabaddi

After cricket, there is nothing better than watching the cows on a sunday afternoon.

You just said it for me. Watching and observing herbivorous animals(only the small ones) like deshi moorgees running around on a large village field in Bangladesh brings a smile to my face, and gives me greater pleasure than watching or playing the sports I mentioned above.
