    Interesting...I went to the Sydney Olympics well more paralympics cause its much cheaper...So I saw the swimming, some racing events. At the Olympics I saw a handball game on like the last day ahaha...I was in the big park watching the closing ceremony freezing :) & being a whinging 10 year old.

    Also seen Union (the trial between tahs vs fiji)...Rugby league of cause, Football of cause...I saw a game of afl in Tasmania with about 1000 people watching...2nd division of their main comp...does that count? Almost got lured into following the game...its that addictive to watch live...Also cricket too (Nsw vs Victoria couple years back).

    League, cricket (all versions, including the short-lived NZ-only "Action Cricket"!) and a couple of games of union.

    I think that's it. Oh, and an episode of Top Town back in the 80s, if that counts as sports.

    I'd love to see some NBA, dunno about golf, went to the Austalian Open to watch tennis but you had to be too quiet which ruined it.

    Action Cricket? Do you mean Cricket Max? I went to some of them. & speaking of old NZ tv, they should bring back Clash of the Codes!

    Nah, Action Cricket was before Max. Think it was invented by David Trist. It was two innings of ten overs for each team ... bowlers got four overs each spread across both innings.

    Lasted one or two seasons in NZ, then Max got introduced. Remember when they first brought in Max and they had four stumps?

    I actually wish they had kept Max going instead of 20/20. The Max zone was the best thing, it was very exciting!

    They had four stumps & no LBW's - I remember Dipak Patel appealing for LBW & then asking why it was given not out.

    I don't remember Action Cricket at all. I reckon Max was better than 20/20 for sure, once they got rid of the four stumps of course.

    I've been to NRL (der), A-League, Major League Baseball, Pura Cup Cricket & the Olympics we saw the Cathy Freeman 400m final.

    On my honeymoon we're going to watch an NFL game and hopefully an NHL and NBA game too if the schedules work out! *cross fingers*

    I've seen cycling (when we were kids the Tour of Wellington went past the motorway by our school and they made us go outside and wave).
