    We only have NCAA FB and BB here and no NFL and no NBA so that probably influences why I watch (once in a while) college and not pro. Of course, in this market it would be real hard to compete with OSU as it so dominants everything.

    I think it's easier to find gay men interested in sports in the southeast than it is in other regions in the country, don't you think?


    I actually agree with this. Living in the southeast, I can easily find other gay guys who show interest in sports. Not so much when I was in Jersey.

    reptile18 saidI like playing sports, I'm super competitive and love to win at anything, but I hate talking about sports, watching competitions, or talking about sports or competitions...

    That's very much like me. I like to play, in mostly non-team sports, but not discuss or follow sports. I rarely touch the sports section of a newspaper, and I don't even know the TV channel number for ESPN.

    But I was very active in competitive tennis in my teens. Later I took up racquetball in the Army. I've been s serious cyclist for over 50 years, but never in competition, just against myself. Likewise with archery, though not considered a high-activity sport. I shot skeet against others while in the Army, to maintain my marksmanship skills. And last year I took up golf. No team sports, which I deliberately avoid, so maybe that's the gay pattern I follow.

    Three-time Olympic ski coach here... Ryan Quinn was NCAA sprint champ in skiing a while back.

    Of course we can like sports!

    I think there is some truth to that. Although I know a few gays in Boston who do like going to sporting events here. But in Boston going to see the Pats, Celtics, Red Sox, and Bruins is more of a status thing, while in the South and Midwest see it more as a way of life.

    I'm a big sports fan and get really competitive when playing. The only thing is I can't stand watching them on tv so you won't have any luck talking about the latest games with me at any social setting. I suppose in that way I do fit that stereotype, unfortunately.

    That weird part is that you are actually listening to what some 17 or 18 year old say about a certain subject.
