Yes, I am odd - I follow F1 racing.
Well, it is time again for another Formula 1 race this weekend .... huh? I hear you say .... Yup, my hubby and I follow F1 racing (and the Aussie Mark Webber in particular). We started watching it when we finally got a free to air sports channel about two years ago and amazingly the races are on live and it's usually prime time (8pm) on a Sunday. F1 used to be shown in the dead of night here in Australia and I am not THAT keen.
It is not really even just the races that I enjoy -- it is just a whole "boy soap opera" thing. The rivalries, the tactics, and a few new rules each year just to add a little twist to the game.
... and yes, all my family and friends think I'm nuts... but hey, it's fun and something hubby and I can enjoy together, and my brother follows it so I can chat with him about it too.
Hubby and I also love watching Iron Chef (the original Japanese version with dubbing/subtitles) and no one can understand that either.
So do you have a sport you watch or an activity you participate in that makes everyone you know think you're a little silly/crazy/weird?? I really love to know I'm not alone out here!
