I am originally from the UK, and Cricket is up there on the boring scale. The game lasts like three days.

Probably long distance running followed by swimming.

Tie between golf and baseball for me.

Golf. It's televised Ambien.

@captainsuperdawg: I was going to mention those two as well, along with hockey, but there are fanatics out there....

vote-for13vote-against

Nascar. "oh look, he's turning left!"

Or maybe bowling. But golf definitely makes the top 3.

@okham: I'm with you on NASCAR...that's a good time to take a nap.

@jsimsace: I kinda like hockey. I don't watch it a lot, but it's really awesome when a fight breaks out.

Fishing, golf, and bowling.
I am interested in the best 5 minutes of the highlights. Maybe.
IF nothing else is on the news at the moment. Then I'm done.

I liked the Lingerie Bowl this time.
Tho it and Women's Collegiate Gymnastics are both getting too talkie and less watchie. IF I really wanted to watch a has been and a couple hangers on discuss something that happened a while ago whilst they are either in another location or in front of waay out of focus background, I'd be watching something else.

Golf, closely followed by soccer. With golf, I just don't understand the appeal of watching guys hit shots that you'll never in a million years be able to duplicate. Just give me the 5 minute highlight segment, and that's more than enough. Heck, I can even live without that!

@rprebel: So true...you have to say this in excellent English: "And the current leader is not Tiger Woodszzzzzz... it's Bubba who?".

Golf and NASCAR, both are equally boring and horrible. Even worse though is when they have golf on the radio, my dad actually listens to it in the car, pure torture.

vote-for3vote-against

there are some sports, that are OK to compete in, just don't televise it on major networks... isn't there a golf channel?

most long distance sports should be just a finish line highlight.
problem with baseball is that you only get one excited game out of maybe 20..

by statistic and ratings, NASCAR is the most watched televised sport in US. which may or may not be surprising..

Curling...if that can even be considered a sport

@rprebel: Nicely done...but they do have John Daly. Even though he was from a city about an hour from here he is still a trainwreck, yet a fan favorite. Who woulda thunk that a beer-guzzling cigarette-smoking Hooters-loving guy would make a name for himself on the PGA tour(albeit a bad one)?

vote-for9vote-against

Golf.

Poker. (when did a card game become a sport? but seeing as how ESPN feels the need to cover this I included it)

vote-for1vote-against

Hunting or Fishing. I used to think golf was ranked right up there as the most boring, but somehow that has changed. I actually enjoyed watching the final round of The Masters this year. Go figure :-)

@okham said, "Nascar".

No, the question was about sports.

vote-for3vote-against

"mixed martial arts" / "ultimate fighting" - or whatever they're calling it this year. It makes professional wrestling look ... professional. I was unwillingly subjected to it on the TV at a tire dealer some time ago and wanted to tear out my own eyes. It was 4 hours of worthless biographical information and grandstanding followed by about 12 seconds of "fighting". I'd rather watch a RonCo ad marathon.

Baseball and golf, hands down.
Hell, I went to a baseball game the other week. Was dozing off in the first inning.

vote-for1vote-against

BASEBALL. Standing around for 3 hours. Being successful 30% of the time makes you a hall of fame.

vote-for1vote-against

at first i'd say golf... but after i think about it at least with golf you get nice scenery. so i am gonna have to go with Baseball. Why you ask? a bunch of dudes stand around doing nothing. unlike golf, where you move from hole to hole, in baseball, everyone just stand in one spot. then two guys have a boring game of catch, while some unfortunate fool stands there with a stick and tries to hit it. the approximate likely hood of him hitting the ball is 1 in 854,396,092. on the off change he hits the ball, someone catches it, and the hitter then goes to sit down. once or twice a season, someone actually hits a ground ball. the hitter then runs 90 feet then stops, while the other team has another game of catch. the most excitement you ever see in baseball, is a homerun. in this scenario, someone hits the ball to far to be caught. the hitter then lazily runs around the bases and we go back to playing catch while someone trys to hit the ball with a stick again. worst sport ever

Golf, NASCAR and fishing are incredibly boring to watch... but if you combined them, I'll bet you'd have something awesome.

"Here's Jeff Gordon on the 14th green... he revs his engine... steps on the gas and heads toward the hole... awwww, he didn't read that break to the right and he went straight into the water hazard, but he DOES get a bonus for nailing a twenty-five pound mackerel."

Baseball. Far and away. Nothing happens. Makes golf and football (soccer) look interesting in comparison.

@mml666: I would never call curling exciting, but I find it fasinating to watch. It has a nice mix of strategy and skill. You need the strategy to decide where to place your stones, and the skill to put them where you want them.

Triathlons. Watching people who make me feel like a pig exercise for several hours without the energetic spokes-person? No thanks.
