    NFL - Pretty much every game.

    MLB - Pretty much playoffs only. If there's a compelling pitching matchup in the regular season, I'll watch.

    NBA - watch a game a week or so. Will watch many of the playoff games.

    NHL - Nada. Zip. The game translates terribly to television; I haven't watched an NHL game in years.

    NFL - Will watch if there is a team I really like playing or one that I hate playing: lol2:

    NBA - Will catch a game here and there through the year, watch a lot of the playoffs and all of Conf Finals and Finals.

    MBL - I'll watch the Reds 50 games or so a year then the playoffs and series.

    NHL - Never watch it...

    NASCAR - I watch the Superspeedway races and that's about it

    Golf - Majors and Ryder/President's Cup

    The NBA as often as I can, and the Super Bowl, only because I've hosted the party recently.

    I've watched bits and pieces of other NFL games depending on whose company I'm in, but in general, I don't have much interest the game. (I'm from a competitive marching band school with no football team.)

    That's about it.

    I watch the Reds.

    I watch the Bengals.

    I watch "big" NBA games all season, and then throughout the playoffs, when I'm on the couch and surfing.

    I watch golf. Lots of golf.

    I watch soccer. Premier League games on weekend mornings mostly, when we don't have other events / activities of our own going on.

    I watch all but the NBA.
    To me the way the game is called, has taken away me having much interest in the game.

    The NFL
    I have lost a lot of interest in this sport this year. Mostly because the regional games offered in my area stink.
    Plus, you've watched every college game that has ever been played. Keep me updated on that Quinnipiac-Rider game tonight.

    Do you still check out the PBA shows on Sunday?

    Lots of Reds.

    Fair amount of NFL but not as interested as I used to be.

    Some NBA regular season. All the NBA playoffs.

    I do at times plus its also on the CBS sports network(I believe that is the other station) that it is on.

    Was not aware Quinnipiac played tonight.

    They are struggling big time this year.

    Interesting take. I also watch a whole lot of golf.

    And believe it or not, I have taken to watching Premiere League soccer because there's not much else on television when they're playing. I still pooh-pooh the game quite a bit, but I admit to watching a match - sorry, fixture - or two just about every weekend.

    NHL - The only sport I will watch regardless of who is playing, pro or college. I absolutely love it.

    NFL - Bucs, Bengals, and the Red Zone. That's about it. I haven't watched a single playoff game this year. I believe I'm missing one, right now.

    I watch Rowdies on YouTube and the EPL on Sunday mornings. I've pretty much quit watching all other professional sports.

    NFL- Very little except the playoffs. I'm not a Packers fan, but I A-A-ron Rogers is the man.
    MLB- Couldn't tell you even the last World Series game I watched.
    NHL- When in Nashville and the Preds are playing across the street at Bridgestone & we are watching a great band with drinks in hand on Broadway is one hell of a party.
    NBA- More than any of the other three, but I'm not sure what that says
    Golf Majors- Every shot of The Masters & usually the Thursday of the others. Friday - Sunday during the summer? Inside we aren't except for maybe the Sunday of the U.S. Open with it being on Father's Day.

    NFL: I am loyal to redzone and if certain teams I am rooting for in big contests are in the national games I watch those.
    MLB: Next to none, unless it is the playoffs. I do go to a couple games a year.
    NHL: Next to none.
    NBA: Unless I am busy, I do not miss a Timberwolves game. I also check in on the national games each night they are on, being most captivated by the Warriors and rooting against the Cavs .

    NHL - I watch hockey every single night. You guys don't know what you're missing. @swamprat gets it.

    NFL - I used to watch the NFL religiously but can hardly stand the consistently crappy product on the field (and it's not just the Bengals).

    MLB - I used to be a hardcore MLB fan but as I've gotten older, I find better things to do with my time. I'll follow the Reds more than watch them.

    NBA - What's that?
