The New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the NFL are playing in Wembley Stadium, London today.

I don't watch any sports, nor participate in any. People do watch American football (handegg) in this country, but most watch actual football (soccer). Yes, a sports tag would be sensible if there are a number of topics on the subject. I cannot see any others at the moment.

@DigitalBoss: The lack of a "sports" tag, that Lee doesn't like sports, that UKer like soccer instead, or that The Buccaneers are playing in UK? @Lee: One can always create new tags, Isn't it?

@BorgClown: You can suggest a new tag, e.g. by adding it to your new topics, but they'll only take effect if I approve them and I won't add a tag (to the cloud) for just one topic. The entertainment tag works well here, although it's intended for film and TV rather than sports specifically.

@DigitalBoss: I don't like sport much also, but I found myself watching with pops a box match. The boxers wore pink boxing gloves in support of some woman cancer institute. It was fun. I don't like general sports, but any match where the sportsmen really pour themselves into it is great to watch.

I am 50 years old, and I still play tennis. I have a bicycle that I ride occasionally, and there is my Harley-Davidson, of course. My dad is the big football fan; American Football that is. I like a good football game, but not as much as my dad. Both my dad and myself have lived in the Atlanta metro area for the last 50+ years, and I remember the Atlanta Falcons coming here as an expansion team in 1966 when I was 7. I have been a disappointed Falcon fan since then.

I have been doing swimming and I'm currently doing salsa dancing, but haven't really got much interest in doing sports. I could do badminton if I wanted to play with someone special, but wouldn't do it just for the sake of it. My father was always into sports, so I avoid them completely.

I don't often watch the man's version of American Football (Rugby, much the same, without the protective gear), so I'm not interested myself... I like the F1, and the odd 'real' football game when my sister is around to watch it with ('he's cute, go him!' makes it a comic master piece!). I also like to cycle in theory, and climb, but both are kind of unaccessible to me atm :( Oh, and World Rally is awesome - it's not on TV near enough! usualy just a 15-30 min best moments of the last few races...

I think the biggest, and the best, difference between rugby and American football is the forward pass. A well executed forward pass is a thing of beauty. The rules were taken from rugby and soccer.
