Watch: Basketball, hockey, football, baseball (but like Brian, only if I'm there or doing something else while watching)

Play: Basketball, bowling, pool, soccer.

I referee soccer as well, in season, looking to move toward other sports.

Watch: Golf, football, racing, bowling

Play: Golf, bowling, softball

I used to watch far more sports, but selfishness, arrogance and corruption have made the majority of sports unwatchable anymore.

Play: Pretty much just basketball, but for fun I like bowling, and I'm actually kind of good at it.

Watch (in order): Basketball (mostly college, but I'll wach the NBA Playoffs), football (just NFL), baseball (somewhat), golf (only if it's the majors), and hockey (only if the Hurricanes are the in the playoffs, which they are now :-)).

Watch- Basketball, baseball, golf, and, my fav, rodeos!

Play- Bowling, horseback riding, MINI golf :), and a little bit of basketball- with relatives, of course. In the future, I'd like to start bull riding.

Here are mytwo main teams...

College basketball: UNC (bet you would've never figured that one out)

NFL: Carolina Panthers (next season, it's Super Bowl or bust in my opinion)

I'm a die-hard fan of both of those teams, but I also have some teams I casually root for...

MLB: Boston Red Sox

NBA: Charlotte Bobcats

What sports do I like to play?

Swimming, Baseball, Basketball, Bowling, Bicycling.  I do these the most, loads of fun!

What sports do I like to watch?

I like watching almost anything except soccer [:: ducks ::]  and wouldn't you know?  I'm being pelted with ESPN promos for the World Cup.

My teams:

MLB: Dodgers (and the Cincinnati Reds too, now that they're in different divisions)

NFL: Steelers (woot!)

NHL: Kings [and they do have fans, trust me ;) ]

NBA: Lakers for life.  I started rooting for them back when they were in the dumpy years of the mid-90s, any of you remember Sedale Threatt and Elden Campbell?  They laughed at me then, but not anymore.

College FB: Men of Troy, USC!

College Basketball: none

I watch hockey and CFL football.  I'll watch international hockey whether it's the World Championship, World Juniors or Olympic hockey.  I also love the NHL.  That's what I'll watch first and foremost in regards to hockey.  I'm from Edmonton so obviously the team I cheer for is the Oilers.  

Then there's the CFL.  The team I cheer for is the Edmonton Eskimos and I might add they were Grey Cup champions last season and have won the Grey Cup in 2 of the last 3 years with 3 appearances in the Grey Cup final in the last 4 years.  Not too shabby.

Sports I play include b-ball, mini golf (is that really a sport?) and I go bicycling.

Miniature golf is certainly a sport. As a matter of fact, the Putt Putt Championship was on ESPN2 earlier (not that something is automatically a sport for being on ESPN *cough*poker*cough*, but still). Here's what I say: if it's a competitive game, and it requires a ball or physical use of your body, then it's a sport.

You mean ESPN has done something in the last two months besides serving as Barry Bonds' publicity agency?
