1. Powered Paragliding (shameless plug? nah.)
2. Not really. Sometimes Motorcycle racing or Shooting Competition if it surf upon it.
3. No, I was a band nerd and NJROTC kid, though now they have a letter in the JROTC's (or did for a while, silly I think) because of the physical aspects of it. Did things I'd never have done before thanks to it, and got some military flights in too.
4. Yes, the Charleston RiverDogs, because I like the minor league name a lot.
5. I support kiddo 100%, so yes, when applicable.
6. Yup, especially when you hear the spoiled rotten stories... Worse is the cost of a pair of sneakers with their name on it. Why triple the cost compared to a good pair without the name? Don't get me started... (grin)

Here are mine:

1. What is your favorite sport?
Probably competitive ice skating or equestrian events.
2. Do you watch sports on television?
Not unless I'm really sick and the remote is far away or missing...
3. In high school, did you (or do you) play any sports?
Nope.
4. Any favorite teams?
Well, when I was younger, I was an avid Reds fan, and I grew up going to Cincinnati's Riverfront Stadium for games... but baseball ain't what it used to be. It used to be more about the game, now it's more about money. So the same players aren't on a team for more than a year or two before the whole deck gets shuffled again. It's hard to maintain loyalty to a team under those circumstances... now people focus more on their favorite PLAYER than a given TEAM.
5. If applicable, did you (or do you) attend your child's games?
N/A
6. Do you think professional athletes make too much money?
Absolutely. But so do all big-name entertainers. And some of them waste it while others invest it well... so you can see who deserves to be wealthy and who's just a kid in a candy store!
