Sports fans! I'd love to know what sports you love to watch -- or, more specifically, which sports leagues you enjoy the most, and which specific team(s) (if any) in those leagues that are your favorites.
Say which country you're from too!


Since I asked, here are mine.:

I live in the U.S. (Texas)!

I love American Football, specifically the NFL (Carolina Panthers & Jacksonville Jaguars) and college football (Texas Longhorns).

I like Basketball, specifically the NBA (Dallas Mavericks).

I like Baseball, specifically Major League Baseball (Houston Astros) and Minor League Baseball (Round Rock Express of Round Rock, TX).

Finally, I like Ice Hockey, specifically the NHL (Colorado Avalanche & San Jose Sharks).

How about you?

The Arena Football League (AFL)- Arena Football is like regular American football, except better.

The National Football League (NFL)- New Orleans Saints are Pittsburgh Steelers have my vote for two best teams.

The National Hockey League (NHL)- Columbus Blue Jackets, Buffalo Sabres and any Canadian team rock. Unfortunately, there may not be any hockey this year because of Union disputes.

The American Hockey League (AHL)- Like the NHL, but one step below. It seems like the guys playing try a lot harder then the pros, making every game feel and look like the Playoffs.

Major League Soccer (MLS)- Freddie Adu, the LeBron James of soccer. He makes DC United rock, even though he didn't start for his first 5 or 6 games.

I live in the U.S. , by the way (Western NY)

LOL, that's why I went back and edited my post to change football to American football -- I realized that there are people on this Message Board from all over the world, and that to the rest of the world 'soccer' is 'football' and what Americans know as 'football' is called 'American football'.
And then there's Australian football, which the rest of the world knows as 'rugby'... This can get confusing!

haha..OK, for some non American stuff

I love Rugby League and Union ( Aussies will know this), so

NRL (Rugby League)- St. George Illwarra Dragons
Super 12 (Union)- ACT Brumbies

Soccer
English Premier League- Liverpool
Italian Serie A- Juventus (used to be Fiorentina but they had financial problems and are in Serie C)
Spanish League- Deportivo La Carouna

I love ice hockey but they never show it here and I don't really know many of the teams. All the big ones I know, (Dallas, Colorado, Anaheim) but I don't know any of the players.

Nah, never liked the really big teams. Get's boring supporting them. Don't really like Beckham. He's a good player and all, but he's a bit feminine, wouldn't call him the best role model for soccer players. I like Roberto Carlos though, he's a legend. Always trying bicycle kicks and completely missing.

Good to see someone from the US who's interested in soccer.
Don't find many of the around.

Actually, it's Australian Football is called AFL and it's not rugby. There's some similarities but it is very different from rugby legaue and union.
