Thread: Most Entertaining Sporting Event- Single Game.

  1. #1
    For the general fan, what game do you think is the most entertaining?

    Baseball All-Star: Pitching is too dominant.
    Home run Derby- great event but not a game
    Football All-Star- no one wants to get hurt- sucks
    Hockey All-Star- ok

    Add your favorite- any sport, any game.

    I'm a little confused about a the different soccer/football leagues across the pond, do they have "All Star games"?

    "All-Star" means the best players in a league, usually voted on by the fans.


    Basketball All-Star game- Just watch those althetes go, defense be damned!
    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?

    We dont do all star stuff in the UK.

    Probly wouldnt take off, but it would be too difficult to work anyway.

    People would want players playing for clubs in other countries (transfer market is quite europe wide) , then theres club, country commitments and the fact theyd want like 1 million each probably

    Oh this is "almmmost" easy.

    It's a toss up

    The Superbowl
    NBA Finals Game 7
    NBA All-Star Game

    The Superbowl is the most hyped
    The NBA All-Star Game is sort of an exhibition game

    but the NBA Finals, if it goes to a game 7, IS AMAZING.

    Football is popular probably because there are less games played.
    The NBA is a little less popular because you can missed 5 games and still have 75 more to watch (of just your team)!!! It is personable in that you can see everyone's face.
    Hockey is not as popular because the average joe must find an ice rink to practice it. Not very easy to just pick up on.
    NASCAR is bunch of cars going in a circle. Nuff said. I look for crashes and the last lap.
    Silly bitch, your weapons cannot harm me. Don't you know who I am? I'm the Juggernaut, Bitchhhh!

    Ok "any car racing that goes in a circle or oval"

    The problem with soccer in America is

    1. No commercial breaks or much other breaks for that matter. Other countries like that, we don't. We need piss breaks and if we take one, we don't want to miss anything.

    2. Low scoring games. We don't want to watch something that goes back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, back and forth and at the end of 15 minutes score 0 to 0. This is also what plagues hockey.
    I went to a Washington Redskins Football game and they were playing the NY Giants. It went to overtime and then............THE GAME ENDED WITH THE SCORE 7 TO 7!!! A FUCKING TIE. One frigging touchdown apiece and I froze my ass off watching that game. What a piece of @#!%$^$ &$#$#@%

    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    &#39;typical&#39; crowds in F1 are <100,000.
    F1 is the ultimate Formula in terms of technology and speed, imo
