Default How do you respond to a sports question ?

What's the best way to respond to a sports question or just a conversation about sports that you know nothing about? Without letting on that you know very little about it.

Let's use an example; What do you like most about cricket? Sorry. I don't know much about the sport. Please tell me what you like most about it?

If someone asks me about a sport I know little about, I belittle it For example, if someone asks me about hockey, I say that its not a sport at all...but a hobby

Just because something is "competitive" does not make it a sport. Is speed chess a sport?

Yeah I never could get into that. But it does look nice in HD. What makes nascar so lame is that they just make left turns

If drinking is a sport, then "hurling" is the trophy..

Unless you were talking about curling.. That's def. a sport. Best thing about the winter olympics!

I love to watch them play Curling! I wish we could get that Canadian sports chanel on D* so I could watch it more often than every 4 years.

Just watch ESPN. There are countless examples of people answering questions about sports they know nothing about.

just tell the truth that you don't know much about, but you could still show some interest

If you accept Chess as a sport then Rapid Chess is also a sport. It is just a variation of Chess game where skill of the player is tested even further with time limits. Sport can be a game or an activity where an individual combines skill with physical or mental exertion while competing against opponents.
Hurling is also a sport. It is slightly different from hockey. All you need is a group of people to invent and play a game. It will be accepted as a sport and gain popularity only if there is a fan following, just like basketball did.
