    My overhyped....

    As I sit around waiting for friends and family to show up so i can start BBQing, creating a fire and smoke column visible to the shuttle, I saw promo after promo for the World Cup and the Indy 500. While I had an internal debate about which I cared the least for, the Kentucky Derby also popped into my head. So for me its..

    1 World cup
    2 Indy 500
    3 Derby

    Its no coincidence that they are rated by how long they last....at least the Derby is over in a few minutes. Whats yours?

    Yeah, I'm not a huge soccer fan by any means, but the World Cup is awesome. Not only do you get to see some excellent games and some of the best players in the world, but you also get the really cool broadcasters who make the games 10x better.

    Oh, I think that the current Stanley Cup series 'twixt the Blackhawks and the Flyers lives up to the hype....and I shall probably watch much of the soccer World Cup for the same reasons that Coach quotes.

    I care the least for:

    1. NASCAR
    2. Golf Events not concerning Tiger Woods
    3. Indy 500
    4. Horse Racing

    Not a soccer fan, love the World Cup. Love it.

    Re: My overhyped....

    The World Cup doesn't bother me too much, only because it's only every four years. Here's the stuff I couldn't care less about:

    1. Little League World Series (I love baseball. I hate watching 12-year-olds play it)
    2. Women's college basketball
    3. Women's professional basketball
    4. Auto racing
    5. College World Series (I hate aluminum bats)
