    American Football is the best sport--followed by soccer. Baseball and pride/ufc are somewhat hit and miss.

    Only football was worthy of a vote. In my case, nothing else is capable of
    causing such irrational pain, distress, or euphoria

    Watch tennis, and North American sports to varying degrees, but none could
    ever have the same effect. Watch rugby with less interest than I do even
    American football, it has to be said. [Even if it is national.] Watched the recent
    superbowl and experienced a level of engagement that rugby all too often just
    fails to evoke.

    Please allow me to also mention cricket, for another reason. I would rather
    watch 1,000 goalless Bolton - Blackburn derbies and subsequently have to claw
    my own eyes out than be forced to watch or otherwise hear more than 10
    minutes' enthusiastic discussion on that dross. I find darts truly rivetting by
    comparison, and it is difficult for me to type such words. I am repulsed by
    cricket. Terrible, terrible game.

    [Like the television theme music though, even if it does trigger an allergic
    reaction of sorts.]

    American Football all the way! It's about the only sport I really like, though. I can get into baseball in a small way if I'm watching it with someone who's a fan, but otherwise I don't care two licks about any other sport -- as a spectator, that is.

    Participant-wise, I like American football (although I never played in school), volleyball, and bowling. Yes, I know bowling isn't a "real" sport, but I felt like including it anyway.

    American Football, by far. As Decker said, Go Raiders!

    I wouldn't necessarily say it's 'better' than other sports, but it's what I grew up with, played as a kid, and love. That's what sports are all about IMHO.

    I also enjoy Hockey. Used to watch baseball, before they drained out all the life with strikes and pumped in all the 'roids for records. Can't stand basketball, mostly because of the unholy agony of spending 30 minutes and multiple commercial breaks on the last '30 seconds' of a game. Often even a game which isn't close at all gets dragged out meaninglessly into oblivion.

    Which is one of my favorite things about non-US football, i.e. soccer. No messing around with time outs, pauses, and boring delaying tactics. They play. Maybe they don't score, but at least they're out there moving and making things happen.

    Has to be football, i can watch or play a few other sports with some interest but nothing comes close to football for the affect on my emotions whether im playing or just watching. Even if my team isn't playing i pick a team to support and when they score i find myself jumping round the room like a nutter.

    and the poster whose name i can't spell without looking is completely right about cricket (and darts!) it is one of the most boring sports to watch!
