Football is so much better in person if you actually have good seats and you can't get the true feeling of Ryan Clark almost decapitating someone unless you are close to the field.

DH and I agree with you that football (at least pro football) is better watched on TV.
The problem with hockey is that a poorly played hockey game is about as dreadful a sports experience as one can get, save for watching 2 year olds play soccer. But a well played hockey game is among the best in-person sports experiences there are.

Football has become unbearable, even on TV. And I used to be a huge fan. Too many audio/video gimmicks, announcers are getting worse every year and the analysts... ugh. Too many saying too little and too loudly. Love the tailgating, you can have the actual game.

Baseball will always be my #1 sport. As many have said, it's a game that continually rewards the knowledgeable fan. Ritalin kids need not apply for fandom.

College hoops is #2, IMO.

Hockey is number 2 for me but football is a distant three ( and I've never seen prosoccer in person). Even with good seats in football the angles are bad, the TV breaks awkward, etc. Baseball has the summer outside, the crack of the bat, and the pace if the game is such that you can argue with your friends over this year vs last. Playoff hockey is pretty Fun though. If there were any justice Roberto Clements would be haunting nutting

I am a Pirates fan and I will never give up the ship, but these are bad times for my Buccos.

Most consecutive MLB losing seasons, team
And I'm planning on moving to Pittsburgh just when the SF Bay Area teams, other than the Raiders are doing great. It's going to be quite an adjustment.

I think the NFL is beginning to realize that with Hi-Def TV, why bother to go to the game. That's why the Rooneys did not build, excuse me, that's why the Rooneys did have we taxpayers build a 80K seat or more stadium.

I went to the Bucco game on Tuesday and while we were singing at the 7th inning stretch, it hit me. Can you imagine 2 hours into a football game, people actually singing a fun song like that? Hell, most are too drunk to stand.

I enjoy football at home, at least the only one spilling beer on me, is ME. and it didn't cost 8 bucks.
