How can you find football boring to watch?  NFL is tedious these days[1],
full of stop/starts geared around TV advertising.  NBA is at least
fast-paced.  Watching the most recent Old Firm[2] game was one of the best
football matches this season, and that's just the SPL.

I like baseball, but only in short doses :)

[1] OK, it's only *really* tedious when the 'Skins have their entire season
fucked up by week 3 :(
[2] Glasgow derby, Celtic v Rangers.
