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.
