    I don't really watch the others, except for the odd football game.

    So far, two catagories have kind of suprised me. The first is wrestling. No love for John Smith or Cael? The second is football. I would have bet the house that there would be a few votes for Montana and Rice by now.

    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    RYou, it's hard to believe you say hockey is boring.

    I'd rather watch hockey than baseball, lacrosse, college football, most NFL games, college football, etc. I've been a hockey fan for over 25 years, and the game is the best it's ever been.

    Every sport has it's dull moments & exciting moments. In the USA people watch more NFL then the other 3 major sports combined. That should speak volumes about what folks here are into. To me there isn't too much more exciting of a sports event then going to Beaver Stadium on a Fall Saturday. I think like most Football fans most of watch the NBA or NHL in the playoffs or game 6s or 7s. Having been to the Olympics I have to say that those were exciting events & I also enjoy UEFA Champions League & EPL.

    Lately I have been watching a lot of Jose Reyes, really having a great year.

    What is EPL? And I don't know if you heard, but Reyes just got put on the DL. He is in the midst of an MVP-like season and a contract year. Hope it doesn't affect him too much.

    Have you ever actually seen Dan Henderson wrestle? I can't find any videos. Please hook me up with some if you can.
