Well? It seems that my love of sports has completely died. I think it killed my passion back when MLB had that strike back in the early 90'*. Now between that fracas involving the Pistons/Pacers and fans and the NHL lockout I hardly pay any attention sports now.

I'll still watch hockey, when it comes back. But yeah, strikes and lockouts really hurt.

I agree. I don't watch nearly as much sports as I used to. I still watch football every now and again and I like boxing but that is about it.

The NFL is great this year. The passion is back, it'* got hero'*.

But you are right, NHL is just disgusting right now IMO. The NBA is going to change, or no one'* gonna go to the games.

Nascar and NFL(maybe college too) are the only things worth watching these days.

Haven't watched a NASCAR race since the Daytona 500 in Febuary, 2001.

Yeah man, it was a surprising, sad day. You going to tune in to ESPN this Saturday for the movie?

Speaking of NASCAR, I've got to hand it to the governing body of that sport. They knew what they were doing when the restructured the points race. I thought it was bogus when they laid their plan out, but the end of this season ended up being quite suspenseful. I'll be watching again next year.
