52 Lists: Sports I Like to Watch or Play

I'm going to preface this with the fact that I'm not athletic and I'm not really a sports enthusiast.  As a kid, I liked swimming, skating and riding my bike, but didn't like gym class that much.  I remember not minding volleyball, and I also remember playing frisbee football at church camp one summer and that was tolerable.  I've just never been an overall sports fan, but there are a few things that come to mind.

  • Baseball - I was born and raised in the south, and my daddy was a Braves fan.  I don't remember any other sports on in our house, and baseball is the only major professional sport I could still enjoy watching
  • As a young adult I enjoyed both a kayaking and whitewater rafting trip, and that's something I would probably still enjoy if we ever got around to it
  • Hiking - haha just kidding!  I don't even think that's a "sport" so much as just an active thing to do.  It doesn't matter though, I'm still just more of a nature walker with the occasional casual hike thrown in
  • Summer Olympics - I usually watch on and off, and enjoy gymnastics, diving and some swimming events 
  • Winter Olympics - Same deal.  I'll watch most here and there, but tend to like figure skating, bobsled, snowboarding, and freestyle skiing

Well that was a short, easy list.  What are your favorite sports?

  1. I am looking forward to watching the Olympics! Have a blessed week!

  2. I was the same as a kid - enjoyed riding bike, skating, playing frisbee, etc; but not a fan of gym class. We're also looking forward to the Olympics!

  3. Interesting that you liked volleyball in gym class; that was the one unit I was the worst at. I despised it! I was always too short to be able to get the ball over the net. I probably still am :0

  4. Ditto!!! I'm not a sports fan either and after reading many of the lists, we are not alone :) I have been watching and enjoying the summer Olympics.

  5. I did enjoy volleyball in gym class but trying to play this summer I was surprised at how much the ball hurt! I didn't remember it being that painful.... and I just kept hoping that was not me showing my age.
