    So I'm interested in what everyone's favourite sport(s) are outside of combat sports. Whether you're a fan or a player.

    Rugby (Blues/All Blacks :bowdown:) and Premier/Champions League Football.
    I would watch La Liga, Serie A, etc, but games aren't played enough on American TV for me to be able to follow them, and I hate watching Football on a small screen (computer).

    I watch collegiate style wrestling when its on also...

    i'm not a big fan of serie A or La Liga, I kind of like Bundesliga, but 99% of the time just watch the premiership.

    Why did you quit? I don't get to snowboard very much here. Just in the coldest winter months. Even then I have to drive a few hours to TN and usually stay a weekend. I still skate nearly every day though.

    I got burnt out. I got to the point where being a professional skateboarder was nowhere near the realm of possibility anymore and I just had more priorities. I think it was living at the Osiris house in san diego that burnt me out. 24 hrs a day having people over to skate the mini ramp and destroy our house just made me want to grow up and go to school.
    I tried to skate when i moved up to SF, but it was illegal everywhere i tried to go :wtc:

    Understandable. I know I will never go pro. Just like MMA. I just do it now because it is fun. I have alot more important priorities though.

    Tennis, both to play and to watch.

    For other non-combat sports I need to have a team to root for to get into it. Unless I care about the outcome, the actual physical things they do in football, soccer, baseball, basketball, just aren't very exciting and they don't really make me go "oooooooo I can't believe he managed to do that!!"

    I played college baseball. Football, basketball, and rugby are also fun to play.
