Which major sport is the least exciting to watch?
Why did you compare both NASCAR and Formula 1 as similar boring sports. Formula 1 is not a sport which makes left turn continuously, is a whole lot of complex driving, and I don't understand why are both sports boring. Both sports are really entertaining till the end of the race.
I basically created this debate just to get up on my soapbox and say baseball is a terrible spectator sport. It's equally boring to play, mind you, but watching it - you might as well slam your head into a wall for three hours, at least then you might end up with some moderately amusing hallucinations.
Pitch, swing, miss . . . throw back to pitcher . . . pitch, swing, foul . . . pitch, swing, HIT! Finally, someone hit - oh, he's out. Awesome.
As a former baseball player I have to say that I wholeheartedly disagree. Baseball is one of the most exciting games to play and to watch. While to the casual observer who doesn't understand the intricacies and strategy behind the game it may seem slow paced, to the trained professional it is an amazing sport that is fun to play and watch.
EDIT: I thought it said "most exciting"... I r dumb.
I'm sure I will be opposed left and right, but I say football. Think: unnaturally big sweaty men run towards each other as fast as they can and attempt to get an inflated piece of rubber and cowskin, yard by painstaking yard, from one end of a rectangular field to the other. All possible attempts are made to pile on top of whoever is in possession of said inflated rubber.
At least in golf, you get a varied landscape. More depends on wind speed and technique than the impact an individual can sustain before breaking something.
Actually, all of the excitement of football is probably in the traditional activities surrounding it: lots of yelling, lots of booze, and scantily clad cheerleaders at half-time.
I would have to say that the most boring sport to watch on tv is tennis. i play the sport and love it but i can't stand to watch it. back and forth across the net over and over. BORING!! when your in the game your thinking about spin and angles but watching it is pointless
