I'm not sure why

but if I'm channel-surfing, due to their not being anything on I want to watch, and I come across one of three activities, I have to watch them. They are almost always being aired on ESPN2.

The first one is bowling. Doesn't matter whether it's males or females, big or small tournaments, or if it has any faces that I even recognise. Watching these folks roll a big old ball down the lane, the pins flying to and fro, and the consistancy of these players, is just astounding to me. I've played in a "Planet Rock" league, and I was so proud that my team came in next to last. (Hey, at least we beat out one team. That's enough for me.)

The second item on the list is poker. The "World Series of Poker" is such great fun to watch. I'm not going to bother going into the mechanics of the game of Texas Hold'em, but suffice it to say, that it has quite a few intricacies that keep me interested. Also, there is something a little voyeuristic about the fact that I can see what everyone is holding. Watching someone just bluff his pants off. is wonderful entertainment. I currently play online at Popular Poker. One of these day's I may actually try with real money, but as it stands, the "play money" games are still fun.

Lastly, there's pool. I can't help it, I LOVE that game. Eight ball, nine ball, straight pool, or trick shots, all have what it takes to hold my interest. One of my favorite movies of all time is The Hustler. So far, due to schedule difficulties, I haven't had a chance to enter one of the tournaments held at my favorite sports bar. I used to play there all the time, and I kinda miss it. There are two things that I dislike about this guy, first: he can do this, and second: he lives too far away for me to join in.

Well, after talking about it, I may have figured out why I watch these things. I think it might be because I like to do all of them.

..heh... eat your heart out, boy... anyway, I ain't that far away... we need to have a blogmeet or something for the RTB..

Munching vigorously on it right now.

I agree, A big blog meet would be something cool to attend. Hell, even a small one would be groovy. I've never had a chance to meet another blogger face to face, but I'm positive that the banter around the table would be something to behold.
