Your three most boring sports to watch.

These are the sports that you can't stand to watch. You'd probably choose two consecutive hours of listening to your ex wife berate you then watch this garbage.

    With the exception of I do like the track & field events at the Olympics once every four years.

    Can no longer watch NFL, non WS MLB and non championship series NBA.

    And with the WS I'll put it on the radio and putz around the computer. No athletic event should run much past 3 hours.

    The badminton championships were just televised on ESPN 8 the Ocho. I watched a little bit out of
    curiosity but just not my sport, though I admit when the shuttlecock is in the air anything can happen.
    As far as polo is concerned, my feeling is if we were able to wipe out polio in this country then we damn
    well should be able to wipe out polo. And lawn bowling is becoming more popular every day, though
    trying to get a 16 lb. bowling ball rolling across a well manicured lawn is more of a challenge than I care to take on.

    Another is women's beach volleyball.

    All the men watching it, hoping the girl's tops or bottoms accidentally slip off.

    Absolutely disgusting! 🤪

    Off the top of my head (and more than three):

    NASCAR, Rhythmic Gymnastics, Golf, Baseball, Fishing, Curling, Bocce and Bi-Athalon.

    All of these are boring to watch on TV and in person.

    Also I will add Competitive Eating. In person or on TV, it is just disgusting and gross.

    Soccer is always boring. I can not get into it no mattter how hard I try. It’s easy to understand why the best soccer announcers are noted for yelling, “gooooooal!!!!!!!!!!!” That’s to wake up the fans who fell asleep 45 minutes ago, five minutes into the game.

    The Pro Bowl is a joke, but I can easily understand why. Why end a great player’s career in a meaningless game? Years ago the Tampa team lost a great running back when he wrecked his knee in a stupid, meaningless Pro Bowl exhibition football game that was held on the beach.

    NASCAR is boring. The only tine it gets interesting is when there is a big pile-up, which like rooting for the lions to eat the Christians.

    Soccer I cannot watch. Hockey Night in Canada was go to TV in Detroit. Bowling was great on Sunday mornings.

    Soccer and Nascar far outdistance everyone else. fishing would be my third. As to all the bowling haters out there, I can understand because you can't really appreciate the intricacies of the game. If you are even semi-serious about the game and understand the wide variety of factors involved, it's just great watching those guys perform under those conditions. I know I'm probably in the minority here, but do we have any other bowlers in this thread to back me up??
    And thank god, spring training has begun, which means baseball is not very far away!

    Used to watch it as a kid in Detroit from the nearby Canadian station. Sort of like watching bowling or golf. Enjoyable for a while but you are not jumping in the air knocking your drink over.

    Curling makes the list seriously?

    Watch women curling in those skintight outfits and you will change your tune. You all are probably the same knuckleheads that are transfixed by college football and shut the tv off when women's volleyball comes on I bet.

    I don't consider many of the mentioned "games" actually sports. Soccer qualifies, and is a snoozefest.

    Golf, Nascar, Bowling, fishing don't really seem like "sports" to me. More like activities or games. Yes, they require skill, but so does tiddlywinks or marbles.

    I bowled in a work league and a couples league for years. Really enjoyed it! Never got TOO serious about it, but I did go from throwing a straight ball to a semi-fingertip fancy (at the time) ball, and learn the game. Can be quite fun. REALLY great when you let go of the ball and just KNOW it's going to be a STRIKE!

    I was channel surfing just the other day and bowling came on, watched for a few frames and moved on.

    I used to golf with my father, who loved the game, it could be fun to play, but can't watch for too long.

    Played a little soccer too, boringest sport ever to watch. Absolutely baffled as to how it can be the "worlds most popular sport".

    People often say "you just don't understand the game" well, I understand them, they are just boring to watch.

    Baseball is creeping up there as a boring sport to watch as well. It's already a slower paced game that is getting way too slow. Tell the pitchers to throw the ball and the hitters to get in there and hit!

    golf boring to watch , fun to play . When I worked at the country club I could squeeze in 6 holes in 20 minutes just before dark . Everyone was off the course , I'd be riding a cushman from one hole to the next.

    Of course being on the clock ostensibly working while I played helped with the enjoyment level B)

    It was a given that if you worked there you would be able to play more than people who actually paid to get on the course. You were never going to get 18 holes all at once though.
