My favorite TV watching sport is football, followed by golf and Sunday commercials, aka Nascar. However, since I got an HDTV, I've been known to watch whatever may come on. It brings the sport to a whole new level of home watching

As far as 'real' sports in my life? An occasional game of golf with some beer drinking buddy's and that is about it.

Bought a Wii machine for my grand daughter to use when she comes to visit and I've become quite proficient at Tiger Woods Golf and Brunswick Bowling

Speaking of 'video' golf....I participated in a video golf game (Golden Tee Live) tournament Saturday, sponsored by ESPN Radio and Coors Light

ESPN Radio

Out of 12 players at the iBar, who do you think was the "Dawg"? Who was the oldest player there? Who will be going to the semi-finals on March 7th?

That's right, last night yours truly was the "Dawg in the House"

And they wouldn't let me use my glove!! Didn't matter, I kicked some young whippersnapper butt without it! Whose yer Daddy?

I gave up basketball and football years ago. As a matter of fact, we're canceling NFL Sunday Ticket. I still watch baseball every so often. Hockey, however, I can't live without. Gotta have my Center Ice.

I use to watch Hockey on TV and go to games, but when tickets got too expensive to go I quit watching.
Now I stick to watching my DD play soccer, basketball, and softball. I think those games are even better to watch because they are playing because they want to not for a paycheck.

Oh boo, yuck, ick! hehe, I have tried to like them in the past but there's just something about the ducks that I don't like. Actually, would you believe the Sabres are my team? DH grew up in Buffalo. I used to watch the Kings all the time (we get both LA and Anaheim in San Diego) until DH started dragging me to sports bars to watch the Sabres. And to think I was the one pushing to get Center Ice. Now watching west coast teams is just so different, slow. I still watch some Kings games especially when they play ducks, or stars. I just prefer to watch the Eastern conference games.

We're hoping to do the hockey stadium vacation tour in the next few years. Vancouver will probably be the first trip. Then probably back East.

plumies, the sabres are who I use to go watch. The best game to see was-- Sabres against Tronto Maple Leafs.

Football and Nascar. I don't care for the rest of them. I will watch the Mav's a few times a year, but, that's it.

Go Sabres!! (hope they make the playoffs...) I especially like the games against the Leafs and the Senators. Did you watch last night's game? Ugh. Guess it was poetic justice in a sense for Briere.

I finally got to see the Sabres play live when they were on the road to CA in Dec. I took a couple of days off and we went up to Anaheim (bad game) and then up to LA (an even worse game). Too bad I didn't push to fly up to San Jose to see that game cuz they actually won that one, figures.

It'll be really cool to see them at HSBC Center. Hey, with the way they're playing, maybe I might even be able to get tickets when we do get out there.

the Embassy World Darts is the only Sport I`ll watch, and that season`s Over now until next year.

although I don`t mind watch the Football World Cup when England`s playing, gives me a good excuse to throw empty beer cans at the TV :D
