I consider myself a left-leaning independent.
I watch hockey, football (mostly college), occasional basketball, and winter olympics. Golf, baseball, and NASCAR are too slow and boring. Wrestling is not a sport.

Republican here as most know: hubby: football, both college and pro but college is number 1. Second, baseball, always has been a huge fan and 3rd Horse racing::Me: I am just a plain sports fan period: I love the same sports he does, of course things like Gymastics, swimming, ice skating are awesome to watch during the Olympics, but I don't think of them as main stream sports.

My daughters were both gymnasts through high school. We came to know and love gymnastics, still go to a few meets.

As a Liberal (not always Dem) I have a partial affinity towards a pugilistic endeavor called: UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship)

Yeah, once my foot gets better (I think I sprained it from inactivity), I'm totally signing up for an MMA class to kick the crap out of whoever wants a piece... or so they say.

that is like our kids and grandkids with swimming. They all started competitive swimming in elementary school or younger and swam through high school except our son. He gave it up for baseball and was eventually drafted by the Pittsburg Pirates. (long time ago)

Any sport without a ball means that you, in fact, do not have any yourself.

Not that I'm a fan of it, but wrestling is a sport...I mean real wrestling, not the WWE crap.

Try telling that to the people who do 3day eventing... Although, I guess throwing/kicking a ball around is far more difficult that controlling a 1300lb animal across a several mile course all while only being able to communicate by touch

Right leaning Indep or Libertarian: Football,competition shooting, Baseball,basketball, hockey, volleyball.
Golf? My brother can watch that and never blink. Shrug, might as well watch paint dry for entertainment.

Republician most of the time, funny, because Basketball is number 1 MY LAKERS GO LAKERS, Baseball, Hockey, UFC FIGHTING love it, and football. Also love ice skating. Most of my republicinan friends like the same things i do, so do not agree with you. And Nascar, is awsome. Where are you coming up with Golf, think it sucks, hate it, and so do my friends. Basketball, Baseball, and Hockey rules, then love UFC fighting and football.

Can't believe republicans prefer golf to the NBA, rich white people as opposed to young blacks, shocking!
