I'm going off the board.... Calgary Flames hockey

As for the most exciting.... any hockey game not involving the Flames (unless they're getting whooped by the canucks :lol:)

Basketball is an absolute snoozefest for me.
I can watch baseball, but usually only for a few innings at a time.
Love to golf, but can't stand watching it.

Outside of hockey, rugby and water polo are probably the most exciting to watch.
I assume though that most people unfamiliar with the rules of those 2 sports wouldn't find it too entertaining.

I hate golf but when Mike Weir won the Masters it was really fun to watch.

So, if there are no home town "hero's" to watch then.........


in the order you listed.

Basketball, tennis, golf, curling, cycling, water sports, track and field and dance.

Golf, nothing is more boring than golf. As George Carlin would say "It's like watching flies mate".

James II of Scotland was right in banning it.

Do this poll in a month when the Euro 2012 bandwagon dies down and I bet soccer catapults up the rankings.

EDIT: maybe 3-4 months because people will be all gung-ho for it during the Olympics.

Baseball is a sport that takes time to come to appreciate, but which is probably the least boring once you do. So much going on at every moment. If you think baseball is boring and need the constant action of hockey, you might have a bit of an ADD problem. I can watch golf in small doses but still find it a little dull, but dear God swimming must be the most boring sport in existence to watch. I also find anything involving horses to be boring too. And frankly, as much as I love the Canucks, hockey played in a certain style (trap, defensive, etc) can be more boring than anything to watch.

Baseball is a funny sport. Apparently some of the most exciting plays in baseball are the home run (where a guy can trot around the bases with no risk of getting caught) and the no-hitter (where nobody gets on base at all).

I'll take curling over baseball any day.

Totally agree.

Baseball and Soccer are too strategic for most people to comprehend. They only want to see constant goals and hits etc. But a well played Baseball game is some of the best drama in sports.

Billiards and Bowling are a couple that should probably be on the list. TSN plays them enough to be considered sports. Although I don't consider anything a sport if you can do it with a smoke in your mouth and a beer in your hand which may eliminate bowling.

I love watching hockey and soccer, that's about it. I can watch basketball and baseball sometimes, but I just can't get into it since I don't have a team to cheer for.

Golf is by far the worst to watch. Let's watch a guy hit a ball, find it, then hit it again! As George Carlin would say.

Last years baseball playoff races were one of the most exciting playoff races that I can remember. Redsox losing the game and minutes later Longoria hitting a HR to send Tampa into the playoffs.

Also loved Dan Schulman's call on David Freese's HR in the WS. You can hear it at the start of Sekeres and Blake.

Why is rugby on there? IMO rugby is nowhere near the boredom level of baseball, golf, NASCAR racing, etc. Its a grinding team effort, and probably the most physical sport to play. The guys are monsters. You gotta love the haka, I'd be pissing my pants.

Sports are made to be enjoyable to play, not for the entertainment of people watching.

Some happen to be exciting to watch though, and that's a good thing.

Tbh man cricket is a great sport. If you watched last years world cup, it was absolutley fantastic, especially the last game! Baseball is probably the most boring sport IMO. Baseball pretty much copied cricket.
