When was the last time you watched a [insert sport here] game/event from start to finish (like most of us do an Alabama football game)? So not bits and pieces or the last quarter or so, but the entire game, race, etc. Just give the approximate year if you don’t remember. I’m curious to see the responses.

NFL - 2020

MLB - 2020

NBA - 2007

NHL - 2002

MLS or similar soccer league- never

NASCAR - 2012

PGA (1 full day of coverage) - never

*I'm asking about watching on TV, but if you attended in person that obviously counts too.

NFL - 2000, September (Teague vs Owens on the Dallas star...party where the game was on.)

MLB - 1998; McGwire breaking the HR record.

NBA - 1991: Bulls vs Lakers

NHL - 2019: a few last year.

MLS or similar soccer league- 2020, a couple of weeks ago- Charleston Battery

NASCAR - The one where Dale Earnhardt died. First one watched in its entirety, last one as well.

PGA (1 full day of coverage) - this past weekend...all three rounds on a screen during the entire broadcast but I can't say I watched every stroke.

2018 NFC Championship.

No game has left a more disgusting taste in my mouth than that travesty.

I used to be a fairly big fan of watching the USW team. Ol' Megan shot her wad and that turned me off. Now I feel it's going to be amplified to such a degree it'll kill a lot of their followers as well.

Having played the game in high school I enjoy watching it now. The biggest drawback is the drive to Daniel Island. Or, rather, drive home from Daniel Island. It's a nice venue with a lot of options around for pre and post game 'activities.'

Fun Fact: I was the "official scorekeeper" for Charleston Southern one season; both men's and women's. Dating the women's soccer coach may have had something to do with that...pay didn't hurt considering it was for two hours worth of work (and basically paid for a day.)

I can't believe you guys remember the last time you watched an entire pro game, by league. I just don't care to remember, it would seem like sloughing off the NFL, for example, mattered to me in a way other than thinking "it'll never be worth my time again".

RTR,

I stopped at a bar to watch McGuire (and had stopped watching MLB after their strike.) Teague v Owens...that's a hard one to forget (as well as the party that day.) I've never been a big NBA guy but watching the Bulls v Lakers with those guys? Again, hard to forget.

I see a pretty big difference in "remembering" and "hard to forget."
