    Personally, I'm into LOTS of sports...football, various ski events (crosscountry, biathlon, alpine etc.), track-and-field, basketball, tennis....I like both winter and summer sports. There are some I find kinda boring, though, like car racing (whether rally or F1), all kinds of horse riding, ice hockey and the two American national sports (American football and baseball).

    When I was kid - WAY before I became a film music nerd - I was another kind of nerd. I used to keep track of all statistics in ALL sports, reading the sports & statistics section in the newspapers daily, and then plotting down the udpated ranking lists in my own handwritten "ranking book". He, he...those were the days. smile
    I am extremely serious.

    Interesting that a thread called "World of Sports" is 95% about cricket! biggrin


    Actually, i am a sports lover. I give high priority to Cricket. Basically, i was a basketball player when i was in school but i showed more interest on Cricket. However, this thread is not belong to one person but to all. You can share your thoughts on favorite sports and games.

    Have a nice day!

    Our new ski hero Petter Northug lost to the Czech powerhouse Lukas Bauer in the Tour de Ski today, after having been in the lead for the entire week. Bauer was just too strong in the last leg, where they actually had to walk UP a steep slalom hill!!

    But 2nd place ain't bad, and he'll be back for the Olympics next month, I'm sure of it.

    I think it's down to cultural differences, very few people outside the wider US and Canada regions find American Footbal, ice hockey and baseball interesting wink
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    You know the funny part? Americans think it's the opposite. The world starts and ends in us football and baseball wink Personally, i find the movies that concentrate on american sports painfully boring, never watching them.

    On the whole I totally agree, there's nothing like a film on baseball, American football etc etc to send me to sleep

    Though there's always exceptions and I did like Field of Dreams.

    It's very odd, this sporting divide. I find all the main American sports incredibly dull, and I'm sure most Americans would find "my" sports incredibly dull. (Though, of course, they would be wrong and I would be right - this is just a burden I must carry.)

    It's weird how many good films have been made about these incredibly dull sports, I think. I've seen several excellent baseball films, even a couple of decent ones about the most boring sport of all, American football.

    I thought For the Love of the Game was good, because it involved one simple game. A League of Their Own I still adore, but that's because it's damn funny, damn emotional and has one of the greatest Zimmer scores ever composed

    Hardball is good too, because the story at the core goes way deeper than the trailer ever acchieves, I was crying at the end shame

    forgot about Field of Dreams, very lovely movie
    waaaaaahhhhhhhh!!! Where's my nut? arrrghhhhhhh

    You are dead wrong when it comes down to hockey. Russia, Czech Republic, Sweden, and Finland are all hockey rich nations. And smaller countries like Latvia, Switzerland, Austria and Slovakia are starting to and have produced some of the best hockey players in the world!

    Very, very sad! There's more to those types of movies than the sport! Most of the stories are universal.

    Well, one thing can be said: you have a lot of passion for your sports and it shows in some of those movies.

    I actually don't have any passion for any sport (though I do get really into Wimbledon when it's on), but I'm able to enjoy the movies anyway because, as Erik points out, they have universal stories and not just for those interested in sport.
