    The NFL.

    The problem with the NBA is that when one team takes the lead the game is basically over. In the NFL, a game can turn in a heartbeat and except for in rare cases the game is not really over until the last couple of minutes of the game... if then. But, in the NBA, a 10 point lead for one team, and you may as well turn on golf or tennis or worse yet, badmitton, because the game is over. The only part of an NBA game worth watching is the last 30 seconds and that is if there is less than a 3 point differential. Other than that... well, the game is over.

    Watching 6'7" men jumping up and down putting a ball into a basket isn't exactly exciting IMHO. There is very little strategy in the game when compared to football.

    Dwight Clark's catch in the back of the end zone... now that is exciting!

    I am/was a Raider fan... The Immaculate "non"-reception... now, that is exciting!

    SUPERBOWL XXXIV; Rams Win Super Bowl Thriller, as Titans Fall a Yard Short - The New York Times

    The Titans coming up one yard short in the Super Bowl... now that is exciting!

    Even NFL blowouts can be exciting.
