So what other sports do you enjoy?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Watch/play/whatever.

Baseball ever since I was little.
NBA in the past 2 years. Don't really like college ball.
Rugby since I lived in New Zealand. Awesome sport!
Motorsports. F1, MotoGP, A1GP, and pretty much everything else. Follow F1 religiously.

Just curious what other roadies like. List some others if I missed any.

Hockey is confusing. There's field,ice, and rollerblade. I do the first two.

LOL. Cricket. Nice try.

I currently do Okinawan Goju-ryu Karate-do and Kubudo four times a week. If I had my way I would still be studying Aikido but there are no Aikido dojos where I live now, so I opted for karate taught by a VERY good teacher. I also really like Racquetball and the court time is free at University!

I have never really followed major US team sports except for watching the world series when the Red Sox are playing.

Hey I voted for cricket, how many millions (BILLIONS?) play it world wide?
Have to say though that whilst I watch most sports cycling is so far ahead that all the others hardly rergister

I love to rock climb, bouldering to be specific. I also like to row, as in sculling, and paddle, as in kayaking.

C'mon, don't pretend to know what "sport hunting" is. You start running. I'll count to ten before I begin. Pellet guns only sting, really.

As for Cricket, the neighborhood kids now play it in our cul de sac.

Hilking (not a sport, but certainly an activity) and tennis when I can find someone to play with.

Fencing.

I gave up basketball a couple of years ago and baseball a LONG time ago. Before I was married I did a lot of open boat whitewater (canoe) and a little closed boat (kayak).
