I would MUCH rather watch a soccer game (or lacrosse game...or hockey
game...) than watch basketball.  I can't STAND basketball!  Watching it is,
for me, like being in the same room with a person who is running their
fingernails down a blackboard.  And... not only is basketball a terrible
sport, in my opinion, but the players - in addition to being freaks of
nature - are spoiled brats who make way too much money for what they do. Of
course, there are many players of other sports who are spoiled brats, also,
but it seems to me that basketball players are amongst the worst of the lot.

Soccer, lacrosse and hockey are such exciting games, and even more so when
one understands the rules & strategy.  One of my sisters plays on a co-ed
soccer team in the Washington DC area.  Recently, she got a yellow card (a
foul, in other words); the ref made what my sister felt to be a terrible
call and so, as she walked past him, she muttered "moron" under her breath.
The ref heard her and gave her a yellow card.  That's my Kimi!

Just my 2 cents worth...
