I'm probably more likely to casually watch a football game regardless of the teams playing, but I'm more deeply invested in what the Cleveland Indians do.  

Baseball it is.

There are team sports other than football?

Really, the NFL is my favorite, and honestly the only sport I regularly watch and follow. Nothing else is appealing to me.

Yes, volleyball. Clearly the world's most watched sport. One game saw 973,245 people in attendance. Sixty billion people watched one game via PPV. ;-)

Baseball. I still like other sports, and the 'favorite' position has changed over time, but I always come back to baseball.

College football. That's just about all I watch now anyway. With some college baseball thrown in there.

I'll never understand American Football, and if you don't watch at least a few hockey games a year in Canada they look at you as a Martian and your family will eventually disown you... so, er, um, Go Calgary Flames I suppose (as Edmonton and Vancouver are pretty much out of it now for this year). I do enjoy a good hockey game, but I don't enjoy a lousy one with stupid fights and penalties where players get injured.

I have a pink Chicago Cubs ball hat my fiancee gave me before he died. We watched the Boston Red Sox break the 'curse of the Bambino' the last World Series he was around for and enjoyed that a lot, and I enjoyed the Cubs winning almost as much! I wore that hat for each game of the final and some before then. Maybe my great-grandmother who I knew and was born outside of Chicago way back pulled a string or two as well? (Not being serious at all about that by the way)

I'm sorry to hear that. But I'm glad he gave you that.

Thanks for sharing that, Rebecca. Nice memento! 

And, I agree about hockey, as well. The style of play seems to 'evolve' and 'devolve' every decade or so, and the lower-scoring, penalty-filled games hold the sport back, I think.
My 'team sports, in descending order:
Baseball(people who say 'it's boring!' as their sole reason for disiking it...bore me) ;-) There are so many 'levels' in which people can connect with the game.
Football(pro and college, although some of the on-field excesses and off-field political crap dampened my enthusiasm...but the Patriots finally losing a close Super Bowl helped a lot!)
Basketball(another sport where my interest has ebbed and flowed. Living in the Bay Area, I watch the Golden State Warriors on a regular basis. In a way, they almost remind me of the X-Men...tough, battle-tested, and valiant...yet still prone to mistakes due to lapses in 'discipline'. To the Danger Room!)
Hockey(It seems that the national TV scheduling here isn't as 'diverse' as it is in Canada...where Canadian networks make an effort to show every team, we rarely see Canadian teams here, and they show the Sabres a lot, apparently only because 'they're a team from a different big city in New York'!)
Soccer: I've slowly come around on the sport, and I've really enjoyed the World Cup over the years...but this year, without the US, and with the strange and exotic Russian time zone, it'll be a bit of a challenge.
Kinda sorta follow MLS, but their season schedule is so unwieldy(they take two weeks off in the middle of their playoffs, due to 'international' matches), it overlaps/conflict with every other sport!
And last but not least...I'm usually really into the Olympics...but not so much this year.

Baseball. But that's a cheat. Baseball isn't just a sport, it's the National Pastime!
