I like participating when it's with people who have about the same level of talent/skill. I wouldn't want to play football with the actual football team. But it's fun with friends who aren't too serious about it.
edit: I suppose the silence means everyone prefers the big screen...
How many people did you expect to reply between the original posting and the 12 minutes till the edit? Not all of us read the forums every second. Most of y'all may, but even I have to take a potty break from time to time.
I don't particularly like sitting down and watching sports unless someone I know is playing. Even then, I think watching PeeWee leagues for 5 years olds is the best. They know how to do things in the game, but don't necessarily get them in the right order or at the right time.
I prefer playing sports. Soccer, racquetball, wrestling, and volleyball are some of my preferred ones. I will do basketball but I suck at it. Baseball just bores me; there just isn't enough time doing stuff versus sitting/standing around.
