•WWF/WCW/ECW — from about 1996 - 2002, I was die hard into wrestling. Then WWF bought up/absorbed the comp, and I still stuck with it for a bit but it got lame At the same time the Pistons were putting good basketball on the court and I just fell out completely on wrestling. Then they had the legal issue and changed the name to WWE… lol I still call it WWF Fuck the world wildlife flowers.

•Cars — I had a huge passion for cars, mainly Thunderbird SCs and Mustangs. At one time I owned 5 cars… Had a T-Bird SC in the Ford 100 year celebration, won the Morana V6 challenge in 2003, placed second in the 2002 nationals… Built a mid 11 second n/a 89 Mustang coupe… then I just lost the passion for it. I still enjoy cars but not at the level I had prior. I still have a 90 GT convertible just rotting away in my garage (needs trans and a new rack).

•Television — I don't watch TV anymore. I have no shows I dedicate time to, I don't go to the theater… I don't know what it is. Time I used to spend in front of the television set is spent these days and times playing video games, listening to music, or surfing the internets.

I like to watch the early games. The games that are on at 7 or 8 eastern time, that's only 12 or 1 in the UK. It's not that bad. Also, Toronto play a lot of games on Sunday at 1pm eastern, which is why I watch quite a few Raptors games, because that's only 6pm over here.

Also, there's a time during the year, I think around end of January through February (I think, I can't remember when it actually happens), when the US eastern time is only 4 hours behind GMT. It's usually 5 hours behind. So during that time I try and catch a lot of games.

I also watch a lot of college games, because they're usually on quite early.

Thanks. I signed up for the newsletter, which'll let me know when it's available, so hopefully there should be some pricing in there.

i agree the wwe = el lameo the days of razor,hart,macho, rock, stone cold are over, even if i wanted to get back into watching wrestling i couldn't.

drinking- i used to love drinking but it's just not fun anymore.
i guess i'm getting too old for it

the nba i hate say is less interesting. if the warriors won the title 2 years ago that would of brought soo many new fans in the league if the nba is fixed atleasted do something good for the league. imo

Talking. Reading. Getting up in the morning.



But really, I cannot watch an entire NBA basketball game these days. Just way too boring. That, and professional wrestling which I used to watch religiously.

-Video Games - I use to seriously play video games every weekend and a lot during the holidays, now I only play seldomly and only If I have a new game. I hardly play anymore.

-Movies - Nobody knows how to make them anymore

-T.V Shows - Still have interest but just not as much as before.

-Basketball (playing) - I still love watching it, but I have lost such interest playing that game now. I hate the basketball team at my school, a bunch of players that like to shoot and they only pass to their buddies and even then they aren't even so generous. That is why our team sucks so badly aside from a bad basketball system. I like playing playground and free for all basketball though still.

I can't think of a single thing. Alot of my interests changed pretty significantly like 5-6 years ago, and haven't really changed since.

I still follow it, but not nearly as much, but baseball is my answer. I used to be a hardcore fan, now I don't time the time to keep up with it anymore.

jerking off/ watching porn - used to be pretty cool

nba regular season - no league pass, and I still watch the wolves but usually find my self teary eyed.

skateboarding - used to be super into that, not so much anymore.

x box - used to play mad live, halo, cod everything. Never do anymore, don't even have live. MIght have to get that again for fight night!
