Favorite sport other than football?
 
What's everyone's favorite sport other than football?

For me, it would have to be hockey. I have the Pittsburgh Pens and I have my hometown Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pens. Speaking of which, they're bringing Lord Stanley's Cup for a re-visit to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area on Wednesday during the Baby Pens game.

Gotta be baseball... Baseball was the first sport I ever watched. My dad worked for the Pirates' Diamond Club when I was five or six. He had an office under the stadium (Three Rivers at that time), so we'd go down there before games and see players and coaches walking around or go to batting practice before everyone else could get in. It just kind of took off from there. I played tee-ball through senior year of high school and wish I'd have played some sort of organized baseball in college. Either way, you have to love a sport steeped in a century and a half of tradition.

Basketball - Fast paced non-stop action. Can't play worth a lick, but it's so much fun to play.

Basketball for sure is my favorite sport other then football. I quit playing football in 8th grade and played basketball all 4 years of high school. So as far as playing my love goes to basketball. But watching sports football and basketball are equal for me.

Hockey for me as well, and I was a hockey fan well before I became a football fan.

I didn't go to my first hockey game till the 2007-2008 season when I went to my first Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pens games. Ever since then, I've been hooked. What really intrigues me is the fact that a good portion of Pittsburgh players played out here in Wilkes-Barre before they made it to the NHL and I got to see them before they made it big. :applaudit:

Hockey or MMA.

Hockey is really hard to follow where I live, but I go to as many MMA shows as I can and have some training in it myself.

There are others?

For some of us, yes. There are indeed other sports. :chuckle:

I hold football and hockey on equal ground. They're both my favorite sports. It's mainly because I've played a lot of hockey and was born and raised in Western PA(ie football country).
