I was in Brazil during the 1978 World Cup. That was pretty cool, even for a non-fan.

I have never been engaged by televised sports. When I was teaching high school, I used to enjoy going to the games.

You prefer rugby with body armour, I get it.
When I was in New Zealand I went to an All Blacks game. Wasn't impressed.
Ditto. I find both rugby and your American 'football' both to be needlessly complicated.

Now that's definitely cool.

Yes indeed Father. I find being a regular at my clubs games has made watching on tv restricting for me and disturbing for fellow viewers unlucky enough to be anywhere near me.
