Re: Sports you watch?

Football (not the US version).
I tried to watch baseball once but got completely confused by it.

Either way, myself, Mrs Towny and Little Towny would prolly make a day out of it and then drop in for a couple of hours in the afternoon, unless it was close enough for me to pop over myself for an evening

Oi! It's competitive, with hand to eye co-ordination, and takes lots of practice - what more do you want?? :p

Yes I must admit that getting the glass to the mouth without spilling a drop, whilst holding three darts does take a good deal of practice and dedication.

netball and rounders lmfao......and in the girly version of rugby where they dress up in plastic to look macho they only play half a game and the other half they are on the bench whilst the other half of the team play.....oh and they throw the ball forwards so they dont have to run much or get tackled.....aarh poor dears

I am stuck with pretty much one thing: hockey. NHL (Maple Leaf supporter [yeah yeah yeah, I know, Hailey's Comet comes around more often than the Stanley Cup, but who cares...]) or Team Canada (I think the big rinks are a little too big... not enough physical action.)

Football, eh. Don't really appreciate it. Never got into this whole guy-on-guy-on-the-grass thing. Basketball is a little better than golf, but not too much. Baseball is a good second option if hockey ain't available. And I don't don't don't watch curling!!!!
I can claim to have watched ice hockey in Canada whilst drinking beer. Strangely enough I have never felt the need to repeat this. Ok, I'll give the drinking beer a repeat performance.

To quote Oscar:
'Rugby is a game for barbarians played by gentlemen. Football is a game for gentlemen played by barbarians.'

EDIT: And, to quote Rudyard Kipling (I think): "Muddied oafs and flanneled fools."
