watch as often as I can, and if I can't I'll catch highlights online instead and read match reports too

Anyway, following sports is no different than any other hobby. It’s up to the individual to decide how much time they want to dedicate to it. I used to follow all my teams closely, but now that I have jobs and kids and a girlfriend and friends, I really don’t stay on top of it anymore. I watch every Dolphins game, but I don’t start watching the NBA or NHL until the playoffs, and I’ve given up on baseball, the UFC, boxing, golf, and everything else.

That was just a joke, we do have the Pirates. They are, however, a laughingstock with an owner who has made it clear he has no interest in putting a winner on the field. I won't give them any of my money, and judging by the shrinking attendance numbers, the city is getting sick of it. They set a professional sports record of 20 consecutive losing seasons starting in 93. They finally made it back to the playoffs a few years ago, but never made it past the wild card. Now all they do is cut payroll.

But I'm with you on your other point. I have a son now and don't have as much time as I had before. The Penguins play most of their games at night, so I can watch them when he goes to bed. I can't watch the west coast games, as I have to be up at 4am for work.

Re: How can some people follow so many different sports and competitions?

How is it possible to watch so many games at once. May be there is a specific time management secret? I follow only EU football and basketball and no room for anything else left.

Not sure how to write college assignments? This can be a workable solution.

I follow a lot of sports but not all equally. I follow MMA the most, then probably basketball, tennis, soccer etc

Re: How can some people follow so many different sports and competitions?

Really follow hockey (NHL, NCAA, Juniors, and International) and football (mainly NFL, some NCAA). I also want to learn how to bet on sports because I follow the sports news and I like it. I think that sports betting is a promising area where you can earn good money. I found this website https://bonus.co.ke/ On the Internet it has high ratings. What do you think about that? I want to find like-minded people in this matter who will help me to make the right decision. Thank you!

Re: How can some people follow so many different sports and competitions?

I generally only watch full matches of competitors I'm a fan of or big important matches. For other things I'll normally just read reports on it, and if there's something particularly interesting that happened, watch a video of it on Twitter or YouTube or whatever.

But the people who are truly invested in multiple sports probably don't have jobs, kids, a wife etc. lol.

I can tell you that playing fantasy sports also keeps you a lot sharper on everything in a particular sport without spending so much time watching every single game.
Wrong. I have a family and follow NBA, NCAAFB, NCAABB, NFL, NHL, MLB, various soccer leagues. It is very easy to follow the teams as the seasons do not all overlap.

Re: How can some people follow so many different sports and competitions?

It's hard, right now I only watch AEW, UFC, NHL and the Raptors winning the NBA championship.. because we were desperate for a championship here in Toronto.. A lot might just follow the results online.

AEW
Jon Moxley, Kenny Omega, Allie, Luchasaurus, Young Bucks, Tenille Dashwood

UFC
Khabib Nurmogemedov, GSP, Rose Namajunas, Tony Ferguson, Daniel Cormier

Re: How can some people follow so many different sports and competitions?

All the guys who do all the daily talk shows, it is underappreciated just how up they have to be on all the sports. They don't have to be experts in all of them, but they at least have to be conversational in each. It is damn impressive.
