|Girls and Sports is great!|
I can't see why there would even be a debate here. I would love to have a girl that is in to sports. As you get older you don't "hang out with the boys" as much and to be with a girl that likes to watch sports and knows the game is awesome. I'm a huge hockey fan (I'm Canadian in case you didn't figure it out)and to sit back, or dare I say "cuddle" and watch a hockey game is my ultimate fantasy!
It also opens up alot of possibilites for a couple. Going to hockey games (or your favorite sport), going on trips out of town to catch a game have got to make it a better relationship. You can even get in some shopping before the game. And like guys it always provides something to rib each other about!
Another good part is making little wagers on games, the payouts can be very good ;)

|My Man Loves It|
I have always loved sports. All the guys I dated were actually impressed with my knowledge about sports. My boyfriend told me that he always wanted a woman who can watch sports and understand the game the way he does. He is not impressed with woman who "don't do sports".

|My Husband thinks it's sexy..|
I'm a new sports fan. I got into Sports because of Colin Cowherd and I found his show entertaining - even when i didn't know any of the people he was talking about. My husband though it was cool I would listen to ESPN radio with him while we commuted to work - and he's emailed Colin to thank him for deepening our marriage.
And he thinks it's sexy I actually can argue the pros and cons of the designated hitter rule.
Go Packers! Go Rays!

|No insecurities here|
When I first met my now-husband, he thought one of the sexiest things about me was the fact that I knew baseball inside and out. Football -- I can hang in there with my knowledge of the game, but baseball is the sport I'm passionate about.
He's not at all intimidated by the fact that I know and like sports. The guys I dated previously (including my husband) all thought it was pretty hot to talk sports with a chick who actually knew what she was talking about.

I don't know why men don't want women to know sports. Women can do anything a man can do. Some women know more about sports than some men.

I wasn't content until I had convinced my girlfriend that football isn't evil. There are now more Steelers fans in the world. I'm sure everyone else is thrilled.

I have yet to find a guy who is a romantic interest that was comfortable with the fact that I am a sports fanatic. Either I am more into sports than them- which is threatening, or I know more then them- threatening, or the spend the whole time trying to prove THEY know more- once again threatened (and that is exasperating, truly, as there is never an enjoyable banter there). I have several male friends who are just fine with it and they all swear they want a girl that into sports but really- they don't! Maybe guys think it infringes on "their time" which, really, go ahead and watch the game with your boys and leave me to enjoy it in peace LOL.

It's ok to be a fan, but if you join their football team, they really dont like it.

|What this guy wants|
I would love to have a woman that loved sports. I'm separated at the moment and she is not a sports fan and can't stand the fact that I am a sports fanatic. If there is a second Mrs. Manny, hopefully she will be a gal that will dig sports as much as I do.

|women in sport|
I think its awesome that women are more into sports now. Its fun to play, fun to watch, and a great way to zone out and forget about lifes worries for the time from buzzer to buzzer. Guys who think that women dont belong in sport...dont belong in sports themselves. They are the ones that dont appreciate what its all about.
I for one am extremely attracted to the sports fan, the type of girl that can hang out and watch the game sometimes and have interesting things to say about it, or even just have nothing to say at all. My ex girlfriend was a huge sports fan and i loved it when we'd see a game together or she would buy me a jersey for whatever reason - to me they're like flowers!
so enjoy the sports ladies, and dont let those fools say anything to take the fun away from it. they are nothing but insecure with themselves and think you're taking something away. when i get stuck watching "sex and the city" and "gilmore girls", my girl never accuses me of stealing her show...(well, if i was actually a fan of those shows, it might be different ;).
ladies, the games on @ 1pm on sunday. see you in the stands.
ps: can i get my pic on that locker room pictures page?

I neglected to make sure I had written in that I had attended the 500 ever year since, and had debated such things with my sister, without gender ever being an issue. My apologies for the failure.

In reading your reply, I am either saddened...or angered...that you accuse me of being one of those fools who believe in "seeing and not hearing women," or for that matter children, especially since I have always felt acute, simmering wrath every time I've heard that expression spoken about anyone at all. However, I am even more so feeling that...way...due to my apparently not being understood in the implications I was making as to why some of the men who've had problems with women having stronger influence in a sport, even if they are only a slightly minority amongst the many apparent chauvenists, might actually have a legitimate grievence that has never truly been addressed (and still to this day isn't, thank you). At least, misunderstanding here is the only reasoned out conclusion I can draw as to what your opening statements implied about me.
I've constantly searched for women to talk to about sport, and war, and their feelings on the delicious sensation of crushing your opposition thoroughly, and the bloody defiance one should show to the end, if failing to achieve the goals sought. I've spoken the poetic lines about Alydar and rider John Valascez (sp?) barreling out of the far turn at Belmont, right on the heels of Steve Cauthen aboard leader and Triple Crown-seeking Affirmed in 1978, and the eerieness of the shadows being cast by the combatants, as though they were gladiators out of Greco-Roman myth, fighting to the last possible breath under the glare of the "dying sun" (for that evening, anyway). The response I've gotten? Regarding the latter subject: "Cruelty to animals, whipping them like that!" I don't want to go into the former, and the "We should learn to get along better" crap that has nothing to do with the inner fire of love and hate and rage and joy. Perhaps this is merely one group of women among many....but if so, here's hoping one can concede that I must've had the worst luck finding them in the world, after a steady ten years now of serious search.
In your opening line, you write the words "sacred tribal places." I must immediately question whether that indicates the lack of seriousness with which you approach my previous post's subject. Sacred tribal places?? Already it sounds as if you're endeavoring to tie it into notions of savagery and/or barbarism, when the desire of males to rule their surrounding space can be seen from before Nebuchadnezzer, the king who ordered built the extraordinarily artistic Hanging Gardens, to after Napoleon, the cultured Frenchman who...did some stuff here and there involving armies. Back to the actual real subject here, sports, the greatest basketball team ever continuously "assembled under one banner" (curiously militant term) was Wooden's UCLA Bruins, a team which had discipline stressed on it so regularly that some might wonder if they would won numerous battles in the jungles of Vietnam, had they been armed and dispatched. Why is "tribal" used to describe something that is seen far more than just daily, right here and now??
"Not trying to conquer them..."
Does the word "emasculate" fall under the term "conquer"? If not, then there needs to be a major clarification of its definition. Emsaculation occurs when a male of a given species that has balls gets them subsequently chopped off by whatever means. This tends to make him much more docile, as any horse-trainer can tell you about a gelding...but in the end, the rambunctious and often half-impossible-to-tame (thank God for it, too) stallions are the ones who have life in them. If that little difference of attitude occurs when they're chopped off, then wouldn't trying to adjust the male attitude to come more in line with polite society (or whatever...that's the most basic premise I could think of) be pretty much the psychological equivalent of physical emasculation?
How on Earth is it emasculation? Though already mentioned, will say it again for ease of reference: "You should be nicer (not so aggressive), and not cause so much havoc to our sensabilities!" Maybe the sensabilities need to change. Havoc attracts males to movie theatres ("tell me when they get to the good part..."), and the uttermost parts of the world (Ernest Hemingway's three real sports, if not already mentioned: bull-fighting, mountain climbing, and auto racing...all else he called children's games played by grown-ups). "I thought we were all going to die....it was the best time of my life," was a line actually spoken to an author named John Eldredge. It makes them more willing to watch ice hockey, of late, and see how the game will police itself...or get a bunch of fines slapped down, if going by the weak method...it fills them with excitement when someone gets a hit in the NFL that you can hear in the broadcasting booth, and utter morbid (or not so morbid) fascination when watching political rioting for change in the streets of some foreign nation. It is ACTION, and it is awesome.
"If we could just all talk about it, maybe we could work it out," was a line someone actually was recorded as saying over the situation regarding Saddam Hussein before the Iraq War. Whether or not you agree with going to war, ENTIRELY a non-issue. What is, to a slight degree, is that someone could of think negotiating with a dictator who understands only force (killing 1.2 million people during his rule) would bring about anything worth a damn. But mostly, the point would be to test what the first guesses would be regarding the gender of the one who suggesting "talking about it." Men ARE more aggressive, and deep down society knows it, despite speaking it aloud being politically incorrect.
I have gone to the Indianapolis 500 continuously since 1991. In that time, I have debated events and their changing, every single year, along with discussing the races when we sit near each other. Am I still attempting to exclude women, if I tell her...told her, to be accurate...that it is pathetically weak to shrink from the challenge of the speed of Indy even if the speeds move beyond human reaction time, and imply all that does is insure that those warriors really ARE on the limit all the time, if they want to have any hope in winning? If so, then fine, call me a chauvenist....I cannot and will not accept the "flowerization" of the combat that sport is, when it is at its best. It's SUPPOSED to involve spitting in death's face and laughing, and accepting annihilation if you make an error, since the fault was then yours.
Regarding bras and jock straps on fire, I've always laughed every time it occurred...it's not like they're burning the flag or something.
Sports is indeed about the intellectual as well as the physical. But when the physical becomes so vicious that people are dying (more than half the racers in the 1950s would be killed in their sport, a figure somewhat worse than the those of the gladiators of the Empire...what glorious men they were, eh?), are women more likely to cry out that it needs to stop, whatever that sport is? If NOT, then I more than welcome any fellow fan who wants to enjoy it to sit near me, and debate the pros and cons of what's going on. I invite women who enjoy the harshness as well as the intelligence, more still, since I have seen so few around me up 'til now.
And as an aside...I think a surprising number of men would savor women being near, if the latter encouraged, rather than discouraged, the former's love of action and battle. Then again, maybe that is me alone.

|Battle of the Sexes?|
You make an eloquent case for the guys. The guys who feel women should be seen and not heard, the guys who fail to understand that women who love sports are not trying to conquer them or destroy their sacred tribal places.
We want to be equal partners, and at least be offered the opportunity to enjoy sports as spectators in ways men have always been able to.
We aren't burning our bras or your jock straps.
How many men who follow football, actually played the game? How many believe that sports are more than just about the physical but also about the intellectual?
I think you would agree that most fans, male or female have the ability to be ardent and passionate as well as knowledgable about a game, after all as a fan we can understand the x's and o's as well as any male coach potato can.
