Okay, I am a sports fan. Except for boxing and other "events" where people are punching each other. But it's amazing how involved I can get in a sport that only comes around every four years. Take the Olympics. I'll even watch curling and stuff like Nordic combined--although marathon type races do find me getting a little sleepy. It's about rooting for your country, I guess. A form of patriotism.
But I'll bet the Brits aren't saying stuff like that. (And I do feel sorry for their goal keeper. He might not be allowed back in the country.)
What about you? Any sports you like? And what is it about these "every once in awhile sports?" Do you tune in even if you're NOT a sports fan?
