Concert.... Alas, too many sports events have badly behaved fans.

That said, I do like summer baseball--and here in Vancouver, it's a lovely way to spend an afternoon/evening. Very family oriented and silly things going on like racing sushi, dancing, and the like. And some nights there are fireworks.

Football (soccer) not a big event here.

Depends on the bands or the teams. I might add, as I am not fond of crowds, more than likely neither.

I'm not fond of crowds either ... but for one of my favourite bands or singers definitely a concert.

For me it would be the concert ticket. I enjoy sport but music has always been more important.



I am a footie fan, but an even bigger tennis fan, so if i had to choose between buying a ticket for Wimbledon singles final, or a concert, the tennis would win.....easy choice for me.

Yes, we do. But can't get excited about that either. Evidently Canadian football is slightly different from American football--the field is bigger and the team is formed of 12 players not 11. Canadian football has three downs as opposed to American four. (All this from Wikipedia because I don't really know what it all means) And there are other rule differences.

My hometown(Baltimore) briefly had a team in the CFL (CFLers), was actually the first non-Canadian team to play for the Grey Cup (1994) and the first non-Canadian team to win the Grey Cup (1995), so I am well acquainted with the CFL.

Senile: I suspect you're better acquainted with the CFL than I am. :cheer: wink.png I've only been to one football game in my life--it was a university game in LA and that was more years ago than I care to remember!
