Can take it or leave it, but prefer to take it. I don't have the patience to sit through an entire game usually. Feels like a waste of time, but I REALLY enjoy a good basketball or football game. Also MMA is a favorite of mine.

I am not a fanatic, I love to watch some football, track, ice skating, volleyball and gymnastics. In my youth I loved participating in track, baseball, volleyball and flag foot ball. Now in my senior years I love water aerobics and pickle ball.

Yes I love sports. Any form of athletics can show human spirit and occasional brilliance that cannot be produced in any other form, It is no longer the high priority due to its relevance in comparison to current events like the pandemic

I've never been a big fan of professional sports; but with the injection of partisan politics into all the major sports, I now actively boycott them.

Sports importance has made education take a back seat. Education first - sports second. There is too much emphasis placed on sports especially at the college level.

I hate all sports! When I was a kid, my dad would take my small TV, put it on top of the big console TV, and listen to a THIRD football game on the radio! He was unreachable. I despise all sports to this day, especially football.

But we had a great time watching Iceland's World Cup team in an outdoor crowd on a jumbo screen in downtown Reykjavik Afram Island!

I love the sports teams for my state but I sometimes watch a game. More often than not I'm not watching.

I hate sports, I didnt like it in school and I dont like it now. I dont appreciate it being shoved down my throat. In high school one of the coaches gathered all the girls in an assembly to explain football to us. I did not appreciate it, wasn't interested and still know nothing about it.

I'm cooperative, not competitive so sports don't appeal to me. Teamwork and strategy appeals to me, but not at the detriment of another team.

When I lived in the city, I'd take the bus if I didn't have a car or it was unavailable. I'd do the same in this small town if there were any, but the local gov't doesn't want to put money into it. We need it badly. If you don't have a car or a ride, you are screwed! Espacially, when very hot/cold!

I live in NYC, which has an extensive public transportation system. I do not need a car and using public transportation is better for the environment.

I live in the county and no buses available. I drive a car now, but in 3 months will turn 80 and want to stop driving. I will sell my car and pay people to take me to appts and vets etc. I have groceries and pet supplies delivered.

There are no buses in the country. If I lived in a big city, maybe I would.

Living in the country it's not an option. Sometimes ride the L in Chicago during family visits and we were on and off the subway in NYC last fall -- the only way to get around!

I attended a destination wedding in Las Vegas and my kids (who were also invited to the wedding) joined me and we had a blast. The wedding was fun and we enjoyed the sightseeing.

We attended two destination weddings in the Bahamas and are attending one in Napa, CA, next week. We enjoy extending the trip to explore these other places.

Traveled to California for wedding of folks who lived there and went to Maine to babysit our grandson while his parents partied after a destination wedding, but that's it.
