Other Sports

Doctor suggested having a thread for sports other than football.

My favorite teams and athletes:
American Football, NFL: New York Giants
Baseball, MLB: New York Mets, RA Dickey
Basketball, NBA: New York Knicks
Hockey, NHL: New York Rangers, Carl Hagelin
Boxing: Mike Tyson, Bernard Hopkins, any Albanian boxer

I also watch a little tennis (just the grand slams). I guess if I had a favorite, it would be Federer.

Of course it does not have to be non-Albanian sports. I'm just not even sure if Albania has a baseball or hockey team.

NBA finals going on right now Spurs vs. Heat. I hate the Heat so as long as they don't win I'm fine with it.

At the touch of her lips it grew long and swollen. He gasped as she squeezed and pulled expertly. It was the best balloon giraffe he'd seen.

That's the same way everyone, not Heat fans, feel.

I like Tebow.

Patriots spitefully signed him to piss off the Jets, lmao.

NFL is the shit. It gets a bad rep around the world because redneck Americans love it so much, but I don't care. I have a blast watching the New York Giants.

Tbh, the only soccer I really watch is the Albanian NT. I've been trying to get into Liverpool FC because that's my brother's team, but I just cannot get into it.

Which team do u usually root for? Celtics are my fav, but that's mainly cause they represent my neck of the woods

If you're not sure what to do with the ball, just pop it in the net and we'll discuss your options afterwards

Bulls. Though funnily enough always been a Bulls fan even in Tirana. My uncle(daje) and I always stayed up late to watch the NBA playoffs back in the day. And when I got here Jordan retires and the NBA lockout happens. Back in the day(in Albania) and a few years after moving to US I was a hardcore NBA fan. Now I only watch the finals or Bulls playoffs. Don't bother with regular season.

Any of you guys looking forward to the Floyd Mayweather vs Canelo Alvarez fight in September?


Canelo could be the first guy to beat Floyd, he's got crazy power and hand speed.

I hate Mayweather too, he ducked Pacquiao for years, now might finally lose.

Same here man, I've gotten into boxing a lot lately and I haven't missed a UFC event in 3 years. I've also gotten into Bellator lately since they've started airing on Spike.

For some of you guys that might not know, there was the first Albanian to make his UFC debut a couple of months back, and he was the main event, due to a dropout, which has never happened before.


He lost the fight, but still,

He's going to get another shot it at, it's coming soon. UFC promised him that he will get another fight.

UFC is a lame sport. A sport created for a bunch of skinheads.

I'm looking forward to it.

But Mayweather is going to win it. At this stage in his career, Mayweather is not going to take a fight he knows he can't win 100 out of 100 times.

I freaking hate the Celtics. I was very happy when the Knicks finally put the whooping on them though.

I forgot his name, but the black dude who beat Pacquiao last summer, before Marquez he should take on Mayweather.

Timothy Bradley.

That would he a good fight. I would like Floyd to fight a black boxer. Floyd beats these central american/south american punchers like nothing, since he is a counter puncher. He needs to fight a more defensive black fighter like Bradley

UFC is not a sport lol UFC is a company, MMA is the sport.


And how was it created by a bunch of skinheads? You know nothing about it. It was created 20 years ago by the Gracie family of Brazil (who are not even white rofl) to prove that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a stronger martial art then boxing, wrestling, karate, etc.

Most of the Champions in the UFC are black (Jon jones, Anderson Silva, Ben Henderson, Jose Aldo) and yet you think only skinheads do this? Dude you need a reality check.


You probably don't know whats going on when you watch it, you have no clue on what Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is, I've been doing it for 2 years now, and it's the best sport/self defense you can get into, great workout too.

As far as Mayweather is conserned, Canelo is going to put an ass whopping on him. Mayweather ducks everybody that has a chance of beating him, but this time he picked the wrong guy to fight.


Bradley would beat him too (he's fighting Marquez actually) and Pacman would clown that sucka, which is why Mayweather never took that fight.

My mistake on the UFC/MMA error.

I'm not going to argue which one requires more skill because we can argue that for weeks.

White fighters cannot move up at all in boxing so they go to UFC. Even rednecks down here don't watch boxing because it kills them that there are no good white boxers. So they watch UFC to make themselves feel better.

Mayweather probably will not fight Pac-Man or Bradley. If he fights Bradley, he might get screwed over like Pac-Man did (Pac-Man clearly won that fight).

I wish he fought Pac-Man. He might now since Marquez damaged Pac-Man up.

I hope Canelo can beat Mayweather, but I just cannot see Mayweather losing.

Maywather is a smart man.
