    Spectator sports: any suggestions?

    Hey everyone,

    Talking sports now...I'm rather bored with watching club football / soccer, as I feel that most teams are not playing it for entertainment value.

    Do you have suggestions on any really watchable / enticing spectator sports?

    What are your personal favorites? :-)

    I really enjoy American football (aka gridiron football) as a spectator sport.

    It's like chess (each player is only allowed to do certain things from set positions) combined with all kinds of interesting psychology. No other sport appears to be as strategic.

    It's the only sport I watch (American Football), and I agree. Even the bartering and maneuvering that goes on in the off season building out the different positions and overall strategy is fascinating.

    Grand Prix dressage.

    Yes, I smell like a horse. No, I don't consider that a problem.

    I don't about that. ^^ But this I could be persuaded to see. The horse and rider are nuts, and I'm sure the bull would make a tasty meal at the bar afterwards.

    Boxing! At least on the occasions when the matchups result in an interesting fight.

    Well, Ludvik did ask for our personal favorites. A horse dancing to a James Bond theme: that entertains me.

    Hockey. It's interesting to watch, which is really the thing about American football that sucks. That game is very fun, thought-provoking and interesting to *play* but as a spectator sport it's pace is just glacial.

    David Wong, regarding Chicago
    Six centuries ago, the pre-Colombian natives who settled here named this region with a word which in their language means "the Mouth of Shadow". Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.
