Asked this question on another thread, but figured I would bring it here... as I type this, I am watching the Met game on TV, and listening to an internet radio feed of the Pittsburgh Steelers 1st preseason game. People I know think its weird to be into theater AND sports... (dont know why??!!!) I dont.. my dad was the same way.

What about you guys???

Well, the entirety of my interest in sports consists of the Yankees....other than that...I really love anything by Jane Austen...that's really my only other obsession.

Sports? NAH!

Besides broadway, I'm musically orientated, classically trained pianist as well as a singer. I'm a huge literature analysis buff...it's my extremely nerdy side :-P

Literature. Dance. Music. Movies. I play the guitar, and sing. I write some music. I keep a livejournal. I would say I'm rather passionate about that.

Writing, definitely. Poetry is SO therapeutic, I write poems like I would keep a diary. And people - passionate 'bout them, too.

Peter Pan.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

I love writing. Not poetry or short stories, but essays and such. Call me a freak, I guess. I also really enjoy just sitting around listening to music and/or reading.

Soccer, running, basketball, and the Red Sox(reverse the curse baby!). I like writing too, but not as much as I used too. I'm more of a sports/broadway kind of gal.

Oh, and South Park. I am passionate about South Park. Cartman rocks my socks.

EDIT: Singing!! I just assumed that was related to Broadway. I <3 singing :)
What is Broadway? A street? Some say it's a street. Some say it is the best street in the world. Others think its terrible. That's the beauty of it, it's terribly beautiful. Some hate it and don't know why. Others love it and don't know why. That's what makes it so wonderful, it's a mystery.

Yup, very glad it is a tradition to show HOOK during the summer.

If you are referring to leisure activities --

Travel ( Europe, USA, and Asia)
The arts ( including the theatre) and history
Books and music
Gardening and different cuisines
Sports - mostly as a spectator ( I'm passionate about Formula One racing and have gone twice to the Grand Prix in Monaco and one in Montreal.. and used to enjoy watching tennis on TV - I liked sports where individuals can show their extreme competitiveness, although I used to enjoy watching team sports, too)

Mostly the good things in life re: What ELSE are You Passionate About??

I play guitar and sing.
I like many other things other than broadway because when you think about it, broadway is an expensive habit.
