I would assume watching... I don't play any of the above.

Football would likely be first on the list. Hockey would be "trending" with the Wild in the playoffs but typically would place second or third.

Hockey is definitely my favorite, both live and on TV.

I like watching football as well, but not to the same degree, and while I'll probably go to a game if given the opportunity, I find I enjoy watching it on TV just as much, if not more.

I find both baseball and basketball rather dull, in all honesty, though I'll go to an outdoor baseball game if the weather is nice and the tickets are cheap (or free).

Baseball. The Twins are the only current major MN sports team to have won a championship (they won both World Series when I was a child), and my parents are pretty big Twins fans, so they're my favorite MN team. The baseball season also matches up with our nicest weather months. Watching a baseball game outside is a great way to spend a nice spring/summer/fall day.

I enjoy watching football, but don't have much loyalty to the Vikings. About 5 years ago, I went to a Wild game since I had never been to a hockey game before, and had a great time, which piqued my interest in hockey. I find basketball pretty boring.

Although there are more people playing Cricket because of the large amount of offshore workers in the Cities, most of us don't understand it, nor would we know where to observe a match. If I understand correctly a match can go on for quite some time. That doesn't fit in with today's world. Even Baseball is trying to shorten it's game time. IMO Cricket will never become popular in the US.

I didn't think they'd ever build a world class soccer stadium here either but that did happen....

Definitely Hockey. Especially with UMD going to the Final Four a second year in a row, there is a lot to be excited about with hockey. Vikings have tarnished their name with an 0-4 super bowl record.
