Sports are one of my favorites hobbies. Since I was a kid basketball has been my favorite sport, but I also love football (soccer), tennis and a bunch of other sports.

Ever since I can remember I have been a fan of Espanyol in football and Joventut in basketball, but I must admit this fandom to be decreasing in time. I still follow these teams all the while and I can't hide my despise for F.C. Barcelona, but with age my fandom tends to be more focused on particular players or teams that I admire because of their current style of play, independently of their team colours. Of course I admire Tamudo, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy a good save by Casillas or an amazing pass by Iniesta. And I liked how Villarreal played the most enjoyable football in the 2007-2008 season.

Basketball

My favorite sport. Right from when I started playing as a kid in the countryside house where we enjoyed our summer holidays, later on playing in the EIE Les Corts team, and finally coaching in the Joventut Les Corts club. Nowadays I play once a week and my interest is strong as ever.

Lately I have been following the NBA with renewed interest, but I identify more with the European style of basketball. So the players I've admired most are not the NBA legends even thought I also do (Jordan, Bird, etc...) but the great european legends like Petrovic, Kukoc, Gallis, Sabonis. Nowadays I like Papaloukas who has dominated recently in the Euroleague, also Calderón and the spanish national time, and in the NBA I love the crazy game of Gilbert Arenas.

Football (soccer)

I've always followed it as a fan, but I didn't begin playing until late. Currently I play football a couple times a week, in a football-7 team and also indoor football, and I do enjoy it a lot. As a fan I have season tickets for Espanyol and I deeply follow the spanish league, I even play in a couple fantasy leagues like the Lliga Les Corts and the Superlliga.

Tennis

Another sport I discovered too late. For the last three or four years I have been playing often with a friend, José Luis, with whom we use to play quite some good matches because our skill level is very similar. There are few sports moments that I enjoy as much as playing a good tennis match against the right opponent who pushes you to the limit. As for following professional tennis, I've been lucky enough to enjoy the Nadal-Federer era so there's no need to add more.

American Football

This is a sport I have never even tried to play in my lifetime, but still it's one I follow with passion. Its complexity can make it daunting at the beginning, but once you know the rules it's exactly that complexity which makes for a very rich sport tactically, so that intelligence and coaching decisions also play a big role, not everything is raw power. The 2008 Superbowl where the Giants defeated the unbeaten Patriots (18-0) against all odds is one of the greatest matches I have ever seen in any sport.
