This is a place where you can talk about your favorite teams, or I you play one, how your team is doing. You can even go crazy and invent your own sport if you want to! Just talk about it here. :3

Don't spam. If you don't want to post somewhere, then don't post there.

For what it's worth, most of the people here aren't really athletically inclined or interested in sports, so they're oblivious to how horrible the Mets are. (I am one of these people.)

I can reinforce that obliviousness statement of Dissensions as to say I know nothing about any teams either. However, since I am here. Ice Hockey and Soccer I find a bit more interesting than the others like Football and Basketball. I guess since more things tend to happen and it is a lot more brighter than a basketball room can be.

I'm not going to lie. I have made fun of the Mets in the past, and usually still do.

Though I don't really have any room to make fun of teams now with the Cardinals' season so far...

Ice Hokey I can understand, cause it's fast and quite interesting game, but Soccer? This is probably one of the most boring and mindless sports on the World in my opinion.

I'm often talking about basketball, but there're other vey interesting sports like handball, voleyball, snooker, hokey. But basketball is part of my life since I started training in local club, that's why it's on the first place and will stay there.

The only sport I could ever get into is Baseball, and even that I only kind of follow. Mostly just the playoffs, since I have yet to find a team to get behind. Mets.... *snrk*
Just kidding, just kidding. Don't kill me for making a joke, please.

Not many people will be posting here. I remember saying something about Final Four picks in the chat thread and no one had anything to say.

I don't keep up with baseball all that much, but i do enough to know that the Mets suck! I keep up with college basketball and football and pro football. Pro has never been as much of my thing as college. I'm a Virginia Tech fan (yeah, yeah, we lost to Stanford! Shut up!). And i, of course, watch the olympics and the world cup!

Well, it can be worse, you can be the most hyped up them the whole offseason and start the season 3-10! (Boston Red Sox)

The Cardnals are only one game under 500 right now... that's not too bad...

2006 Cardnals... *sigh* stealing my team's world series....blarg. lol

The Nationals are a bad team, but as of now I think the Mets are worse, especially with the whole Madoff scheme thing surrounding ownership. The owners of the Mets are being sued for one billion dollars!

We've started hitting. That's what did it. But if we give up runs like we have been, I don't expect to break 500.

Post Re: The Sports Thread
Yeah, that is true, if you keep on giving up runs, you will lose. Its kinda tough, it puts excessive strain on the offence to have to keep scoring runs to compensate for pitchers giving up a lit of runs. The whole trouble with getting good pitching to prevent that is that there isn't really an abundance of good pitchers anymore. Everyone seems to have just an average pitching staff. The only really, reallllllly good pitching staff would have to go to the Phillies. That is the most unbelieveable starting rotation I have ever saw, as much as it hurts to say that, they are in the same devision as my favorite team, and their rivals.... As us Mets fans call them, The Philthies. We also enjoy heckeling them when they show up at Citi Field. Philadelphia is only 3 or so hours away from the stadium, so they come up all the time.

On a random tangent, I sure do enjoy going to the stadium every now and then. I love booing the other team.... somethig about 50 thousand people booing and clapping all around you makes you have pride for your favorite team, especially after they slam a home run and take the lead! You'll be high fiving people you don't even know! Lol.....

My favorite sport to watch (and play) is baseball. I'm a Boston Red Sox fan. :P

I like basketball in the sense of practicing to shoot with my friends, but I don't play competitively nor would I watch it on TV. The NCAA (and Duke vs. Carolina vs. State rivalry) hype at school has pretty much killed my taste for watching basketball. :P

I have to say that I sorta enjoy football too. I support the New England Patriots if we're talking about the NFL. And, during the fall, my favorite thing to do on Friday nights is going to the football game to hang out with my friends at school. :3

Tennis is alright (to just play around- I don't play any sports competitively), even though I'm crap at it. :lol:

Now.... For curiosity's sake.... Are we considering video games to be a sport? :P

Are you asking our opinions?
Neither interests me, partially because I don't really understand the rules of either. I might have to side with the football where you use your feet because I find it easier to follow. I can at least understand the mechanisms of scoring in that one, even if some of the technicalities are lost on me.

Yeah, I'm aware of same name for two different sports, that's why I'm using "Soccer" to make difference between them. So I don't like European Football, using this name. American Football is not bad, but I prefer more rugby in this situation. For sure if I've got both footballs and need to choose one, I'll choose American cause, despite I don't know rules of it, it's more interesting than European football.

I only know a few of the rules of American Football. It does not interest me, even though I know enough to follow it. I guess it is better to watch than soccer though. Soccer is boring!

How is, lets say, Ice hockey different? Instead of a ball, you get a club, a pair of skates and a puck. Other than that, it's the same, just a smaller playfield.

It's faster, has sharp skates that can prove dangerous, the puck goes much faster due to low surface area, there are fights on the ice but not on the field, the puck is harder for a goalie to stop. Need I go on?

I didn't mean it like that. The principle is pretty much the same, one side scores on the other side. Simple as that.

I can watch Hockey or Soccer, I don't mind either. I don't really think neither one is boring tbh. Buuut, that's just me.

in that respect, yes. they are very similar, but the we can include Lacrosse as well. but to me, the danger and fast pace adds excitement to hockey that soccer just doesn't possess.

Of course, in general both have very similiar things, two teams, two goals and they are trying to score more goals than other team. But hokey is more dynamic game, faster, with faster and bigger players rotation, you can expect that something happens in every moment of game. In soccer you must spend about 75-80 minutes of full match 90 minutes, to get this 10-15 minutes of something interesting and it's easier to know when something interesting happens there. More over hockey needs more tactic (and changes of it during the game) than in soccer. Soccer is more about luck than skills than it's in the hockey or some other sports.

*Sighs* Let me put it this way. I have only seen one soccer match, and only 15 minutes of it. The player were kicking the ball straight in the air and straight to someone else in a crowds to pass. Being able to do that was amazing to me, I would defiantly not call that mindless, that sure does take a whole lot of skill. And they kept doing so. American Football I find kinda boring due to nothing happening though, to me anyways. But please do not call something people like "Mindless" as it sure will cause annoyance and tension.

Sorry, but I'm not trying to say that this people are mindless, but game in itself don't need a very tactical thinking or something like this, you need in it more luck or help of referee.

Yes

I never understand why people say baseball is a slow game and they get bored watching it- I always took this at face value, after all there is no clock and the game moves a play at a time- but then I watched a game of pro football (Image) and for every 15 second play there was a minute of down time in which teammates walked around and people in charge made angry faces. I don't see how a game with a one hour clock that can air for three hours can be called anything but slow.

Post Re: The Sports Thread
I can't get into football because of the downtime and running of the clock...

As for soccer, it is a game that requires a lot of skill and it is easy to follow, but I don't like it because they are so skilled. It takes forever to score, even if they do score at all! It is just watching them kick a ball around for a long time. They rarely even get within scoring range of the goals. I don't mean to rag on soccer, but I just can't get interested in that game.

Yes

I never understand why people say baseball is a slow game and they get bored watching it- I always took this at face value, after all there is no clock and the game moves a play at a time- but then I watched a game of pro football (Image) and for every 15 second play there was a minute of down time in which teammates walked around and people in charge made angry faces. I don't see how a game with a one hour clock that can air for three hours can be called anything but slow.


It depends on who you watch. Last year, Oregon one of the absolute best fast-play offenses i've ever seen! Other teams take it slower though. It's all strategic and based on whether or how much stamina both your lines have
