Favorite Playoff Sport to Watch

16 posts in this topic

What is your favorite playoff sport to watch?

1. Baseball-Nothing beats the Fall Classic IMO. Ace pitchers vs Ace pitchers, close ballgames, key managerial moves, leave my starter in or take him out, pinch hit for this guy or that guy. I just love playoff baseball.

2. Hockey- What other sport is there with 2,3,4 or even more overtime games. The game is fast and IMO always exciting. Is there a better site in sports than a grown man with a monster beard hoisting Lord Stanley's cup.

3. Football- There are always some upsets but usually the top teams make it to the Super Bowl. Usually!!!

4. Basketball- IMO this is the most predictable sport. There are upsets(GS over Dallas) but not that many. Sometimes if a team gets down by more than 10 in the 4th the game is over. Plus there are to many timeouts in the 4th quarter. The last 3 minutes of the 4th takes about 45 minutes. Plus everyone knows your big star is going to take the last shot. Very predictable IMO.

Really depends on the season for me.

It did use to be Hockey back in the day when it was a much better game when they actually scored and it wasn't all nuetral zone traps. Lets face it the players are too big and fast and the rinks are to small.

Tough call but College Football Bowl Games, MLB PLayoffs and World series, NFL Playoffs, NCAA Hockey playoffs in that order.

I agree. BUT- you can "miss" all but the last minute of most basketball games and not truly "miss" anything- the last minutes usually the best

NHL playoffs hands down.

MLB 2nd

NCAA football has WAY to many teams. Who cares who wins the Sun Bowl or the Insight Bowl or the Lays Potato Chip Bowl.

Baseball is a distant second.

Thats funny!! I do admit I was flipping through and came across one of the championship games and watched for about 2 minutes. That was all I could take.

Hockey-- both NCAA DI playoffs and NHL last 2 rounds. That's action, and the games are always close, unlike most Super Bowls and WS.

      if this is the lake I,m thinking about isn't the only access thru a farmers yard that owns a little meat processing plant??????

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      locke lake by hasty off 94 was 90% open tonight!!!!!!

      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.   
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
