I used to be a really big sports fan but now I've pretty much stopped watching everything besides Mixed Martial Arts.

When I was a big American Football fan I used to root for the Denver Broncos but last year's Super Bowl kind of killed any ounce of passion I had for the sport

So what sports do you guys (and gals) like?

Im  huge fan of Hockey and Baseball, i don't have the time to watch so many games, but usually i watch the 5 minute high lights on the game centre app. its quick and simple for me.

As we get older we start having less time to do everything, watching a hockey game in 5 minutes is priceless , they even have a show on tv called jays in 30; which has a entrée baseball game trimmed down to 30 minutes.

Hockey fan here, supporting the Toronto Maple Leafs for a good number of years now.

Also soccer. I used to play as a goalkeeper way back when, and I still support my local club, Exeter City.

Big fan of the MLB (Yankees), NHL (Devils), NFL (Jets) and NBA (Bulls) but I'll also watch some of the lesser loved sports. I enjoy tennis a lot when the top players are facing off.

I'm very casually into basketball, hockey and football, but I LOVE baseball -- I'm a huge Tigers, Dodgers, and Phillies fan. And, although I haven't been as involved in recent years, I'm also into skateboarding and BMXing.

Well do eSports count like Heroes of the Storms or Hearthstone? 

If not well I have always been a huge soccer fan since I was a wee lad.  Played soccer all through my childhood in the local city club and then later in high school. Every four years you can bet that I will be glued to the TV for a month watching as much as the FIFA World Cup that I can.

I also enjoy the NFL particularly the Chicago Bears, been a fan of them since their Super Bowl win in 1985.

I was a big Basketball fan back in the days of the Bulls Dynasty but shortly Jordan, Pippin and all them left the team I got busy with real life, job, kids etc that I just stopped following basketball altogether. 

I also do enjoy watching the Olympics when they come around too mainly the snowboarding, skiing and bobsledding in the Winter and the Soccer, track and field and wrestling and water polo in the Summer.

I used to be a huge Hockey fan but the last lock-out made me not pay attention to it for a year and then I never really got back into it. I'll watch the Stanley Cup but that is about it. It was awesome being in LAX this year when the Kings won the Cup and hearing the airport go crazy

That is probably the only positive experience I'll ever have in LAX.

I'm an across the pond fan of the NFL. Played at university and started watching it then, so I don't really have a team as such, more just enjoy the whole spectacle. I used to be into basketball but that lapsed as they stopped doing the round-up shows on British TV.

Up until about ten years ago (I think) there used to be a great pair of shows that lasted just over an hour each every week that would do a great NBA round-up but they got canned for some reason, which was a shame. As a result I spent too long away from it to really care much anymore.

Apart from that, all about rugby and cricket, which were the sports I had some skill at (not much admittedly, but still) when I played and which also neatly cover most of the year. Hard to enjoy the cricket that is on at the moment as much after Phil Hughes sadly died, but it's still a favourite of mine. Rugby is just ace as it was the first sport I played where being short, squat and clumsy was an advantage.

When it's on I'm also glued to the Winter Olympics for reasons I can't quite explain. Possibly because a lot of the events seem to have evolved out of people strapping household items to themselves and then chucking themselves down/off/over/round things. Which I think is brilliant.

Well, the Maple Leafs were doing alright and aiming for a playoff spot, then fired head coach Randy Carlyle, and are right on to a losing streak. It isn't looking so good.
