It's football season! Know how I can tell? Everything I want to watch has been cancelled for a game! ACK!! So this week we'll look at sports! :)
No, football is pretty much shown on a regular schedule and rarely pre-empts things. I think you're referring to baseball, which pre-empts everything this time of year and leads to the severe case of 24 withdrawal that a lot of us are suffering right now...
1. Do you watch sports on TV? If so, which?
Yes, I do. Football of all kinds--college, pro, etc.
2. Is there a sport you'd like to see more (or less) of on TV?
Honestly, I've yet to see the appeal of NASCAR...to me, it's just turning left for three to four hours. And it doesnt' make for compelling viewing IMHO.
3. What's the most memorable sports moment you've seen on TV?
Can't pick just one--I saw Mark McGuire break the home run record live a few years ago, which was pretty cool. And as a Titans fan, I can't overlook the Music City Miracle. But, the most memorable was in 1998...the Vols are down to Arkansas with less than two minutes left in the game and our number one ranking on the line. Clint Sterner goes back, drops the ball and we pounce on it. The Vols drive down with Travis Henry putting the ball into the end zone with only a few seconds left on the clock for one of the most miraculous endings in Vol history. At that moment, I knew that the Vols were destined to win a national championship....
~Bonus~ If you could be a star of any sport, what sport would you pick? And why?
With my love of football, this may come as a sh0ck to some, but I think to be an Olympic swimmer or diver would be just awesome. You have to be in tip-top shape, it takes a lot of work but there is soemthing graceful and awe inspiring about doing it.
