Last week’s poll asked what your favorite part of fall was and unsurprisingly “changing leavings” was the winner. While football coming in second wasn’t a big shocker to me, the fact that “other” was right there with it. Pretty crazy to think about all the things that make fall great in some people’s minds. For me I continue to hate every second of fall knowing that we’re now just that much closer to seeing the white stuff fall from the sky. Boo.
But since football was such a big winner, clearly we have some sports fans in our midst. While not normally a topic I cover here, it was covered and received some good discussion when Chad did a guest post about Favre, so why not have a poll which asks what your favorite sport is (thanks to Joey for the idea).
Prior to college I was never into watching sports. It just wasn’t something we did in my house. While I listened to the Phillies many nights growing up, it was never on TV. I didn’t know how to throw a football until I got to high school, something which was incredibly embarrassing when football was all we did for two years of gym. While I had played t-ball and attended some baseball games, it was regarded by my father as something which was terribly boring–much like all sports. So I never really go into any of them until college when I began watching football every Sunday with the guys I swam with. When I moved here I became a Vikings fan by default (they don’t really show any other teams here aside from the team which we will not mention out loud) and have been a football fan since.
So the poll for this week is, which sport are you the biggest fan of? While you may like them all, there has to be one which you look forward to most. What is it and why? Feel free to vote on the sidebar, pick one of the preselected options or “Other” and write in your own. Go ahead vote and then comment on and then feel free to check out our expired polls in the archive or read through the previous posts about polls here.
