For several reasons… it’s a dramatic, exciting sport unlike any other that operates at the peak of competition. There’s only 20 drivers / professional athletes in the whole league.

I even love how seemingly unfair it can be where driver skill alone won’t do much for you without a great team behind you to give you a great car.

I love how your teammate is actually one of you greatest rivals since they are the only other person using the same equipment to gauge race pace…

I love how Lewis Hamilton has been such a dominating force for so long that any other outcome than him winning the race makes for a good show and how exciting it is that Merc aren’t leading the championship for once.

That is a great series.   Those drivers are the elite of the elite, and yet there are such differences between all of them.  Have you seen a race in person yet?  I haven't, but I'll be considering it once things open.

Football for when I want to watch a real sport.  Soccer is great for when I want to watch dramatic performances by aspiring actors who portray Shakespearean thespians in classic tragedies any time another player looks in their direction within 4 feet of them.

Seahawks! A lot have belgian´s have sympathie for them. do not really know why.

If I´m correct the packers are founded by a Belgian named Lambeau? So I would expect they would root for the cheese heads :D

If you’re naturally athletic it’ll definitely help you at the start, but it does require a real good amount of stick skills, finesse, and IQ. Kinda like hockey

Boxing is on the list.

Although the constant ducking of top tier contenders gets extremely frustrating.

Favorite sport to play football, real football not american handball (oh boy am I gonna get it for that). And to watch Hockey is that business, fast paced, physical, a small chance for a fight and its competitive.

College baseball, this time of the year is one of my favorite. We live in a college town and the exposure my kids had to the college players was awesome. No egos and always willing to share knowledge with the kids.

Hockey for me! I play it, I watch it, I love it. It's fast, games could go anyway, its aggressive, it's just a fun sport to watch.

I love disc golf and F1 too.

Hockey and baseball.   Hockey is exciting, fast, and is a great team sport that requires incredible skill and is really entertaining to watch.  

Baseball was my first love, and it's the perfect summer sport with the slower pace, outdoor setting, and more relaxed atmosphere.  It can also be listened to on the radio while you're doing chores, because unless it's a playoff game, it doesn't generally require complete attention to enjoy.

I have a son who plays both - not at the pro or elite level, but it sure is fun to watch.  Gives a whole new perspective to just how good the pros really are.

Rugby - I know that there isn't a huge fanbase in North America but they do have Major League Rugby which is getting more exciting by the season. There is one Canadian team (Toronto Arrows) and the rest are all American. Tough sport and there is nothing better than a cold beer after a full game!

Golf (to play, not watch), heres a couple of reasons off the top of my mind why:
1. Its the only time you are actually encouraged to drink and drive.
2. Regardless of the groups skill level, everyone can still have a good time (vs other team sports where one crappy player ruins the entire vibe).
3. The networking you can get done when play golf/closing deals.

Soccer > College Football > Hockey > NFL > everything else.

Soccer is by far the most fun for me to go see live or on TV. College Football is transcendent from NFL because you feel you have skin in the game given that you went to that school.
