So when did I come become this person...

...who watches sports??

This past weekend I watched six different sports!

Hockey, golf, and NASCAR (well, part of a race) on Saturday; English football (aka soccer), ladies gymnastics, and figure skating on Sunday.

Philadelphia outscored my Penguins to get into the playoffs.

As you know, we hadn't had TV in years until last November. I'd had a hankerin' for it since Sonshine left because I greatly missed the sound of sports (really, Xbox hockey and soccer) in the house. But it took awhile and I'd gotten past the missing (for the most part). I didn't watch much when we first got TV, but then again it was football season--not my fave. And while I was keeping up with current TV programs, I was doing it on my schedule by watching my shows via the Internet when I chose to and not being a slave to the networks' schedules.

But NASCAR season started in February and now it's baseball season and while I haven't actually watched any baseball yet, I'm looking forward to it. I've also caught some English football!

A couple weeks ago, I watched the Manchester Derby, wherein the two premiere leagues based in Manchester, England play one another.

This weekend  I watched Tottenham kick Manchester United's arses 3 to zip. :)

In a couple of weeks--the Kentucky Derby!! And in August--the Olympics!!!

I never considered myself to much of a sports watcher, but I guess this is all part of the journey. The down side of watching many sports--you can't do much else while you watch certain sports (gymnastics or figure skating) because if you don't watch, you miss a lot.

For pure fun, watch Javier Fernandez defend & maintain his world champion status.

Do you watch sports? If so, what's your favorite?
