1. Golf
2. Volleyball
3. Tennis
4. College Basketball
5. NFL Football

For me - the first 3 are there because I play(ed) those (and watch when I can). Obviously, I'm only a spectator for the last two.

Very fun contests with robots fighting each other, lots of sparks, air time, and flames.

My sporting passions:-

1. Football
2. Rugby Union

They're the only two that I will actively follow but I might watch some of the following if they happen to be on the TV or occurring locally:-

3. Boxing
4. Rugby League
5. Cricket

Will watch these because of the tradition:-

6. The boat race
7. The Grand National
8. Wimbledon

Might watch only if the Olympics

9. Track and field
10. Field Hocky
11. Swimming races (not synchronised swimming!)

Won't watch anymore because of the farcical 'stitch up' at the end of last season:-

F1 Racing

Would avoid like the plague / absolutely no interest:-

NFL
Gymnastics
Basketball
Baseball

That's probably it.

Not a huge fan of American football.

Basketball can be fun to watch, but in recent years, the formation of "super teams" has made me lose interest. That and the fact that, despite being a "team sport," a single player can win the game virtually on his own.
