Most of my interest in baseball came from collecting baseball cards. Once that got boring (which, I suppose, often happens around age 10/11) the sport got boring.

I assume you're referring to Europe, which as far as I know plays most of the same sports we do (soccer, basketball, ice hockey, tennis, etc) and then a few that we don't. Cricket is boring, I'll agree, but that's an anomaly. US football takes a lot of patience to watch as well, since there are too many stoppages and commercial breaks. Soccer, basketball, and ice hockey are free-flowing and sparsely interrupted. It's hard to consider that boring, at least from my perspective.
