I've been paying less attention to sports the last few months. I used to watch every game in the NFL playoffs but I only watched 3 this year. 4 years ago I was super excited for the World Cup, but I don't think about it nearly as much now. I used to get up early on weekends to watch Premier League games but don't anymore.

I just remembered that I had cable back then and not now, that probably explains it.

Yeah, without TV, you have to subscribe to online packages, or live sports is very limited. It's UFC I make the most time for. Then NHL. The social aspect has played a part for me as well. Went out a lot less in 2017, which is a large part of why I didn't watch any NFL or MLB for that matter.

So you're a UFC fan? Personally I'm a bigger fan of scripted fighting :). Glad you're still following the NHL though. 2017 is when I got back into baseball, I was really into it in 2010 and 2011, but the playoffs brought me back and it was a really good World Series, though I had to watch some games on crappy internet stream.

Boston is now on a 21 game point streak. How long will it last?

Pretty big UFC fan yep. It overtook the NHL as my favorite over a decade ago.

Flames sweep the series against Chicago! 3-2 flames!



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

Do you prefer how it currently is, or the vale tudo?

MMA's my favourite individual sport. It's the only one I care about.

Yahoo! 3rd in the division.



So, Burrows was suspended for 10 games because of what he did against Taylor Hall.

I watched the first 2 UFC's in the early 90's, buy only really became a fan during the first season of TUF, by which time the unified rules of MMA were implemented. I prefer it as it is now. It's certainly what I'm familiar with. Some of those early UFC's with the original rules produced some ghoulish fights. There's one in particular I kinda remember that featured a massive testicle beatdown. Many ( totally legal ) but classless blows, that, if I remember right moved right along into grabbing and squeezing.
