Spectator Sports

Wifey B: Ok, it's a given that we all like boating. Also, that a very high percentage here like fishing. Now, I've noticed most serious boaters don't seem to really care about spectator sports on television or otherwise. They may care about their local team but not serious fans...fans, as in fanatics.

So, here it is...got another learn more kind of poll coming up too.

That's the category I was looking for. Am I going blind?

Yup, that. Not even "other". Zero is zero.

I'm into participant activities not spectator sports. Too young to be a couch potato every weekend.

You left off the "Boat Ramp follies" watching others launch their boats..

Someone asked me who I thought was going to win the superbowl. I said one of the teams playing is most likely to win. They couldn't fathom that I didn't know who was playing. Don't care. A nap would be far more rewarding. Or a good boat building video, or a Fleming cruising video, far better than a hyped game with over commercialized TV.

Wifey B: Going much as I thought it would. Well, except I didn't put a not interested in any of it choice.

We prefer participant sports and activities and play tennis and basketball and sometimes golf but I really suck at it. We don't watch sports in lieu of activities though, just fit them in quiet times like tonight.

I think to get a meaningful result you'll have to redo this survey. I'm in the "none" category too - and that's not the same as "other."

My boat and fellow boat people, fishing, woodworking and hiking. I'd rather sit on a stump in the middle of a forest than waste my time watching any of those activities. I like to use my own mind and hands. Ben

The only thing worth watching on TV is sports.

No kidding. Who gives a hoot. I have things to do other than vegging on a couch vicariously living through overpaid class less individuals, or collective organizations "fostering community" through ill conceived and misleading methods to foster their THEIR collective pockets....

Nope, not playing. (pun intended)

Rant over, back to my project.

Eh, did we answer your question?......

Winters are long... The World Series is the only baseball I watch, boxing comes free on Saturday sometimes, football free on Sunday "in the winter". Just a little more fun than watching paint dry... Boating here sadly is a May to August enterprise.

I'm a moderately interested spectator at best, mostly in support of my alma mater, or my kids' schools.

I go to a few college football games a year, but on a 75 degree Saturday in October or November, a football game seems like a tragic waste of a good boating (or fishing) day...

Of course, I have the same thoughts about June weddings. If I were emperor, all weddings would be in February.
