Do we still like sports

    I don't know, but lately I just haven't cared about sports as much as I used to. I can't help thinking that it's because of the job. What about the rest of you? Have you noticed your passion for sports isn't as strong as it used to be since you started writing?

    I've been like that for some time. People think all I do is sit around and watch sports at home when about the onlly thing I faithfully watch anymore is golf. Maybe it stems from dealing with one too many assholes at the pro level.

    I enjoy sports as much as I used to. I just don't root like I used to. I'm in a position now where it wouldn't kill anybody if I had a favorite team ... but I don't. I watch a baseball game, I'm just watching a baseball game (well, except for the fantasy factor).

    And, of course, I am physically incapable of cheering.

    I've been like this for a while, too.

    I live in a very active sports area -- and I'm coming up on the end of two consecutive years where I didn't attend a single live event.

    I never watch sports at home. I only watch it at the bar because it's on.

    I need the page design to lure me in. I'm not even sure what team I'm rooting for anymore unless I see a section front.

    Like I said, just don't call anyone else "unoriginal." You are not allowed.

    Oh my God! We're all losing our interest in sports! The bean counters are going to see this! Pages will be cut back! Millions of jobs will be lost!

    Me, it's not that I don't enjoy sports as much as I used to. I still love all of the competition.

    The thing is that if it's not on my beat, I'm not nearly as informed. I don't "follow" sports as much as I used to.

    PS: I hate my slow-ass computer which can barely let me post in one window and run Yahoo! stat-tracker in the other. I want a G4.
