Being from Indiana, I follow the Pacers (pro basketball). Because they were playing Cleveland (and star Lebron James), they were actually on national television--only the second time all year! Cleveland's been on 32 times! What a shame, because the Pacers have an exciting team. Oh yes, they won 98 to 80.

I thought the Masters this year was terrific golf, especially with that late drive that Jordan Spieth made in the final round.  For a while there, I thought we were looking at a playoff, but Reed pulled it out.  Add that to the fact that Augusta has to be one of the most beautiful golf venues out there and it made for a really good time.

I've never watched so much golf in my life!! But, it was terribly compelling. Fortunately, the weather here was not conducive to being outdoors. (And it's snowing right now.)

I wasn't rooting on anybody in particular, so I watching The Masters was stress free. The winner (Patrick Reed) deserved to win. Still, there was enough drama to keep me watching.

No more TV golf for awhile. I'm eager to start playing, however.

[chuckle] And I'd rather watch the game than play it ... but then, I'm a lazy bum.  Besides, I have neither the scratch nor the skill to tackle Augusta and not be ridiculously over par.

I reckon TV viewership must be very high for ESPN to cover The Masters from 3 PM on, all through the evening, repeating the afternoon coverage. It's way too much for me. I'd rather play the game than watch it.

LOL - I have to agree that baseball is absolutely the worst snore of all. I'd rather watch paint dry.

Glad to have you join the group, Bertold. And yes, your "comment" is most welcome!  Personally, I think golf is the sport that causes the most farts, and I should know.

Speaking of boring sports (to watch on TV), I rank golf and baseball right up there. Let's add soccer and hockey to the list, and especially, figure skating.

Sorta makes you wonder why I even started this group!

Didn't think I'd post in this group when you created it, Randall, because basically sports bore me to tears. (Yes, even figure skating)

But today what to my mindless internet prowling eyes should appear but this very critical question. Little did I know there was a burning issue (so to speak) that needs to be addressed

What Sport Causes The Most Farting?

The NCAA finals turned out to be a runaway for Villanova. I didn't care who won. As a kid, I used to ask my dad who he was rooting for. He would usually say, "I don't care". That bothered me. But as I got older, I found that I don't much care either. It's just entertainment.

I watched (sort of) the McDonald's high school "All-American" basketball game last night. There were 24 players, all "black". (I really dislike categorizing people by so-called race, especially, like Barack Obama and my granddaughter, because there are so many "mixed" humans.)

Anyway, I'm just wondering why sports, especially basketball and football, are dominated by "black"  players? Are they just better-naturally athletic, if you will-- or do they work harder to become more skilled (and potentially make millions of dollars)?

When I watch college basketball games, I often see "blacks" on the court and "whites" sitting on the bench. It is rare to see a white kid actually playing. And, I love to see an all black squad at a southern school where racism still lives. I wonder what goes through the minds of racist fans? Team loyalty trumps everything else I suppose.

Them's me thoughts.
