1. Whats your favorite sport to watch?  
2. Least fav? 
3. Do you hate watching baseball?  if so, feel free to elaborate
4. Whats your opinion on Major League Soccer? 
 
 
1 Football (american), though I’m not sure why, its just becomes addicting when you add beer.  What I’m also unsure of is why the rest of the world doesn’t catch on?
 
2 professional baseball
 
3 Its f’ing boring.  All the practice swings outside the batter’s box, deciding on the pitch, checking the runners, after every pitch they repeat the entire process, 4 chances to throw a ball, 3 chances to throw a strike, unlimited number of fouls.  It can take up to 5 minutes for something to happen, and then when something does actually happen only two people on the whole field have to move, one runs to the base the other runs to the ball.  The only reason baseball is lower on my list than nascar is becase sometimes nascar has a good wreck. 
 
4  I can enjoy a quality game of soccer, and several of the european league teams have a player that I’ve at least heard of.  But with the american league teams, I don’t know any of the players (aside from Beckham) and from what I’ve seen its just not the same caliber of soccer.  So unless something changes I don’t plan to go out of my way to watch it.  I’m doubtful that MLS is going to thrive anytime soon.

1. Boxing.
2. Golf.
3. Baseball is fine in a stadium, with all the atmosphere that surrounds the game. On TV, no thanks.
4. MLS in America isn’t going to take off until more foreign talent is recruited in, kids’ league systems fill the gap in teen years—so soccer becomes as acceptable as other sports, and more focus is put on good collegiate-level soccer already happening in America.

1.  Sumo wrestling.  I don’t know why but I love it.  I like how quick and to the point it is. 
 
2.  Basketball.  Fun to play, but I don’t think I’ve ever watched more than about 5 minutes. 
 
3.  Don’t hate it, but can only take it in small doses.
 
4.  Its ok
