    What are your favorite non-football sporting events ?

    Please refrain from baseball or hoops, I'm going after lesser profile events. Any lacrosse freaks out there ? Swimming fanatics ?

    Here are mine;

    back 9 on Sunday at the masters
    mens final, US open tennis
    breakfast at wimbledon
    kentucky derby
    olympic mens downhill skiing

    Nothing in this world still beats a good fight. I mean a REALLY good fight. Corales/Castillo, Holyfield/Bowe, Barrera/Morales, Ward/Gatti.....etc. Outside of Jet football or Knick basketball, nothing gets my blood pumping more.

    Any high profile boxing match. The electric atmosphere, the anticipation - nothing like it for me!

    I fell out of love with my Blazers about 5 years ago, I think I am ready to take them back now.
    Nascar is fun

    I love boxing, Not any one fighter that I can Identify with though, boxing needs another Hollyfield/duran/lewis/Ali.

    MMA is what I have been watching alot of lately, mostly becuase I like it and it is everywhere.
