I used to read all of the box scores in the newspaper every day as a kid....and still get on and read over the box scores on the Internet every day.

Even today, I closely follow players as they chase achievements like the 3,000 hit club, 300 wins, 3,000 Ks, 500 HRs, etc...

Same deal with football, I pay attention to all of the statistical records and know who is close to breaking what record and who needs what stats to reach certain plateaus.

I spend a lot of time on these sites:

I'll bet you know what time Judge Wapner is on too.
