Except for swimming, I am really not into sports - and even with swimming, I do it only as an exercise that I enjoy, not really as a sport. I detest football and cricket, and never watch any form of sport on TV. All of which puts me totally out of sync with most of Australia, which is one of the most sports-mad countries in the world, and particularly my state, Victoria, which is arguably the most sports-mad state in Australia. Do you enjoy sports? Do you participate in a sport, or do you just like to watch? What sports do you like?

You're right about Australia being sports mad. We're not into sports either.

I enjoy hockey/NHL but only during the playoffs. If my team makes it to the playoffs I'll follow their progress. Other than that and a few olympic sports, I don't engage with sports too much.

When I was in first year high school we were compelled to try a range of different sports. During hockey I managed to cop a hockey stick across the ear - probably one of the things that helped turn me permanently off sport, and particularly team sports.

@lynnief Ouch! That's why helmets are mandatory.

I only watch NFL football, and even then its not every game of the season, not even half of them. I don't play sports.

I do like to watch American football, but only when my team is playing. I'm not really into sports. I do like to swim, and swim most mornings. Today will most likely be the only day this week I'm not at the pool, due to the huge blizzard we had the last three days. I also like to watch the Olympics. There are several sports I make it a point to watch with that.

I like to swim and take walks for exercise. On the TV, I like to watch the NASCAR car races & I like to watch some of the American Football.

Swimming is my passion. But I do watch quite a few sports on TV and am enjoying the Commonwealth Games. Just watched the NZ women's hockey team win gold over the Australians.

@lynnief I do boxing, muay thai, and mma. I'm also into a bit of running. I play team sports such as basketball, soccer, and futsal.

I watch NFL football. I'm a New England Patriots fan. But it's not my life. And I don't get all depressed and angry if they don't win, unlike some other people.

Very sensible. I could never understand how emotional some people get about a game.
