Friday Five:

1. Do you watch sports? If so, which ones?
Currently I watch rugby union and cricket (plus the occasional big event, like the AFL Grand Final or the SuperBowl).

2. What/who are your favorite sports teams and/or favorite athletes?
I’m a Domer, so of course I bleed blue and gold. The closest MLB team to my hometown is the Cubs, so GO CUBBIES! Other than them, I pick my teams based on players that I like. I cheer for the Mets because I like Mike Piazza. I cheered for the 49ers because I like Steve Young. I cheered for the Pacers because I liked Larry Bird and Rik Smits. And I really like Steve Waugh, the Australian cricket Test captain.

3. Are there any sports you hate?
Anything involving a motor (i.e. NASCAR, Formula 1, or moto-racing), which unfortunately seems to be all that’s on telly here on Sunday afternoons.

4. Have you ever been to a sports event?
Of course, silly. I’ve been to baseball games (Wrigley and Shea are definite highlights), cricket matches, rugby matches, and of course many college football games. Not to mention all the Little League games of my brother’s I sat through…

5. Do/did you play any sports (in school or other)? How long did you play?
I played tennis all through high school and was the #1 varsity player my senior year. I still sucked. In college I played football for my dorm for three years and occasionally filled in for volleyball and softball.
