    VS: NASCAR, Soccer, Hockey and NBA

    Simple question, which sport do you follow more and why.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Nascar.

    Soccer - boring
    Hockey - Who cares?
    NBA - Millionaire dope smokers, not my idea of fun.

    Re: VS: NASCAR, Soccer, Hockey and NBA

    Hockey for sure. Not a ton of NHL, but I consider myself one of the biggest NCAA hockey fans.

    Nascar - I can see all I need to see in 1 minute of sportscenter - the crashes. I don't waste 3 hours watching cars go around in a circle.

    Soccer - a very very close second. I have really learned to appreciate the sport, and I'm not so sure that there is a better sports spectacle than the WC.

    I think that most people who enjoy hockey also enjoy soccer. They are really two sports that you have to know a lot about in order to enjoy them. They are not typical American sports filled with non-stop scoring.

    Hockey, it is the fastest most exciting sport in the world. Nothing but non stop action. Nascar would not be so bad if it were not 3 hours of NOTHING with a few 10 second crashes and 1 lap of racing at the end.

    Re: VS: NASCAR, Soccer, Hockey and NBA

    NASCAR was my pick. Growing up it was the very first thing that I remember my father and I enjoying together. We truly looked forward to every Sunday so we could spend time together watching races on TV. I was lucky enough to get to go to a NASCAR race in Las Vegas with him... that is still the most fun I have ever had in my life with some of the best memories ever.

    Re: VS: NASCAR, Soccer, Hockey and NBA

    Soccer. I love following the national team, a few of the European leagues, and some of the MLS.

    Nascar...I zone out after 2 or 3 laps and start doing something else but I guess I pick up on who wins and the highlights are alright but there's no way I can devote three hours to a race without my eyes bleeding.

    NHL...not a bad sport but I like it a lot more in person than on TV.

    NBA...I follow it the second most of the four but again, don't spend too much time watching it on TV.

    Re: VS: NASCAR, Soccer, Hockey and NBA

    I'm confused. You listed 4 options in poll, asking which you follow the most. Then in your post, you ask which sport you follow the most. Adding that the activity had to be a sport clearly rules Nascar out.

    I ended up answering your second question and picked the NBA from the 3 sports you had listed.
