    I can live quite nicely without any professional sports although I do quite like college basketball.

    well since I get to choose what channel to watch it doen't impact that much except that I DO (strangely !!) enjoy USA football but it does eat up a lot of time (unless I do the ironing at the same time LOL)

    Not so much pro ball as the college games. Now those are fun.....playing for the pure joy of the sport.

    I think if more women actually knew what goes on in the NFL, they would ban it from their living rooms....sorry I have such a terrible perspective. My son played for the NFL for 5 years...it was disgusting for a Mom...and for him as a player...it was just life.

    I enjoy football. I live live without the other sports. We don't have a favorite team. We just like a good game. :)

    I am not a football fan myself. Never really understood the whole point of the game. What I don't like about it is that in this area politicians are so afraid the professional sports teams will up and move that they give them pretty much whatever they want. Its just corporate welfare, plain and simple. Our county gave the local team a million dollar score board??? This is the same county that is laying off teachers and police. Don't even get me started about the drunks in the parking lot 8 hours before a game starts. Guess you could put me down as a "makes no difference if its back on tv or not".

    My DH likes all sport but has in the last few years decided he prefers Australian (sp?) football, and Soccer. Of course we have to be knowledable about scoccer, 4 out of 6 grand daughters play.

    I do NOT watch professional sports. This afternoon after church I went out and did some shopping. Then I came home and took a nice nap. In a few minutes (after I get off my computer), I am heading up to my sewing room. DH is happy watching football. I could care less.

    The best part of being divorced is NOT have to watch football, baseball, basketball, golf, tennis & all the rest of those silly sports. :thumbup: I did enjoy hockey & am a big NASCAR fan. My dad, brothers & SIL were/are midget race car drivers, so I've been around auto racing all my life.

    Not so much a football fan but I love our MN Vikings. Same for the Twins. Just like to watch the local guys and enjoy a favorite of my boys. I can get some good sewing done while the game is on. Unfortunately, sewed through two losing games today! Next week we will be at the Vikings game! Skoal Vikings

    No interest in sports of any persuasion. Wouldn't bother me if all of them were banned from television.
