    The only sport I really care about, whether my team is winning or not. Luckily, my team usually wins a lot more games than they lose, and have made the playoffs pretty much every year for the past couple of decades (although they tend to choke in the first round).

    Red Wings play Saturday on the road, and next week at home (once the North American Auto Show is over). Zetterberg begins his first season as captain.

    I have two favorite sports, football because I played it in school, and baseball because it's a game for young boys and old men.

    Games like basketball, hockey and soccer don't interest me because they are continuous action sports. I like to sit back and enjoy the tactics and strategies of thinking games, and not the reaction games.

    Besides, when I played football, it was mostly on the defensive line - and I loved to HIT!

    When I was little, my home town had a NHL team they moved and became the NJ Devils. but after we moved down to Tampa my company sponsored a charity golf tourney. and guess what my team won, it had nothing to do whatsoever with my skills (of lack there of) with a golf club. Any how first prize were opening night tickets to the Ice Palace, (now the St Pete Times Forum). I knew jack shit about hockey, but I do now. you want to see probably the most athletic athletes? Go to a hockey game. and if you truly do love hitting, how can you not like hockey?


    The year the Lighting won the Stanley Cup...man what a ride. Then the next season was the first lock out.

    I liked the NBA in the 80s, when there were some truly great players in the game. I particularly liked the Pistons of the late 80s, with Laimbeer, Mahorn, Rodman(before he went totally nuts), Dumars, etc. Except Isiah, who has proven himself to be a sexist pig as manager of the Knicks. Now, the game is filled with tattooed punks.

    I like the fast-paced sports, as far as viewing goes. I'm a klutz who never learned to ice skate, and who tried and failed at basketball in 7th grade. It keeps my attention, because there is always something happening.

    I liked to play the slow-paced sports-softball/baseball and football. I was only good at softball during the slow-pitch years. But powderpuff football? I ruled as a defensive player because I was tall and I didn't have to be fast, I just had to be able to stand still when some stupid little girl tried to run into me. I never got hurt.

    Then there's coed mud football, but that's something our youth group leader only allowed once, because it's really just an excuse for teenaqers to fondle each other.

    At least the Royals got into two World Series winning one, and the Chiefs won one of it's two Superbowls appearances.
