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.

I'd rather play than watch. I only watched when my children were in school.

I took all coffee packets, cups, shower products from the hotels that I stayed at. Is this stealing?

A coffee mug with a penguin on it from the Little America Hotel in Flagstaff AZ many years ago. My husband made me do it, and I keep pens in it to this very day.

I don't take things that are not mine from hotels, BNB, etc. Things like sheets, robes, towels and the like which I really like, I find out if I can purchase them. It's just the way I was raised I guess.
