Greetings denizens of the virtual gaming world!

This Community Poll (CP) is about favorite sports. A good number of us probably don't like to actually play any physical sports so this poll is asking what your favorite sport is to play or watch.  If you have a different favorite sport to watch than you do to play, pick which one you like doing more--aka would you rather play sportsball or would you rather have an excuse to drink while watching coolball?

 

/Vote and discuss! :D (and say what your favorite team is of your favorite sport)

Update: I added in eSports (accidentally deleted it from the original answers).

I was not expecting this many people to be of the non-sport variety...

Definitely European football. It's not a perfect sport, but it's the sport I've loved ever since I was old enough to understand what sport is. I used to play when I was younger, and after years of inactivity, I try to play on a weekly basis with my mates (it's not a pretty sight, I'd steer clear). 

Leagues I follow: English Premier League, Major League Soccer (USA), the Norwegian elite division (a little bit anyway), and I try to attend my local 3rd division team's games as much as I can (amateur level basically).
Teams I follow: Manchester United (England), Portland Timbers (USA), SK Brann (Norway) and then my local amateur team Bjørnevatn.

For sports I don't know too much about:
I have attended one baseball game in America, and it was 2,5 not so entertaining hours and half an entertaining hour because it took me a while to actually know what was happening. We saw a homerun! Definitely a highlight. 
When in America I also like watching Ohio State college football games with my girlfriend's family as they (and apparently everyone in Ohio) are extremely passionate about their college team. Like, extremely. I don't know if this is normal in every state in America but jeez, I go to Walmart and I see like 20+ people sporting Ohio State gear anytime of the year. But anyway, I think I've gotten a somewhat solid understanding of the game that is American Football.

Aaand since eSports were added, I also love watching Rocket League esports, where I also compete at the second highest level in the biggest Norwegian league. 

I love sports :)

Everyone on this side of the pond assumes everyone in Europe loves European football :P Good to see you're an avid fan of the local teams (I try to support my local teams...when they're not facing my actual favorite teams). I do like going out to the pub to watch Premier League and Bundesliga play (morning time for us :P ).

 

College football is big in America, bigger than any actual semi-professional football leagues/teams out there (or so it seems) and Arena football. Though also (but not as much) football in general is pretty big here--it starts in High school where for smaller towns, it's a big town-wide/county-wide event every friday night game--college football seems to be the regional version of this.

 

Wow...I had no idea you were that good in Rocket League! :o We'll be keeping an eye on you for any forays into the eSports world (for other games) definitely ;) (I can honestly say you were one of our best BF3 players for sure)

I have been a huge NFL fan since I was young. Not gonna say what team though because it will inevitably cause people to be salty lol 🏈🏟️

@Jfranklin94 That's one of the better reasons to love baseball (I do like going to baseball games so much more than watching it on TV though). Fighting is relatively sanctioned in baseball but doesn't happen so frequently. 

 

@Raven Try us ;)

That's not too far from the truth, really :P But yeah my local team is just from a small town but there's always a big crowd and a good atmosphere, it's something special compared to supporting big commercialised teams! 

I've always been fascinated by high-school sports in America. Over here (and I assume most places in Europe) sports are usually completely separate from schools on all levels. If you want to play sports you'll have to join a local club (and pay annoying fees). 

Lol it might sound impressive but the second highest level in our esports league isn't all that good, trust me xD

A lot of fun coming up for fans of football/soccer! English FA Cup final tomorrow between Manchester United and Chelsea, Champions League final next weekend between Liverpool and Roma, and from June 14th to July 15th it's time for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia! The first world cup since '86 without the US of A, even.

If the US would have made it into the Cup, I would have (maybe) gone to Russia to see them play. 

 

 

BTW if you guys haven't voted yet, vote soon! The poll booth won't be open much longer! :)

It's a shame you didn't make it. I was in America when they played their last and deciding qualifier against Trinidad & Tobago, and I had made my girlfriend's dad agree to watch it with us (Only fair since he made me sit through 4 hours of commercial breaks, guess what sport?). Fortunately we ended up not being able to watch it, because it was a humiliating experience for the US team, I've heard. 

Yeah @Global Papi I wish things weren't like they are in the men's side. It used to only be the Mediterraneans and Latin Americans, but it's spread all over :|
