A baseball team I'm a huge fan of, travel/culture interests in an interesting country where my extended family lives, and board games.
As a woman and a die-hard sports fan, I'd recommend that if you're female, try to avoid sports on your resume, but if people ask you about interests not on your resume, you can talk about it then. The reason? Male BigLaw partners tend to be sexist assholes and they don't want to hear women talk about sports, no matter how much you know (this is directly from a former BigLaw partner).
I changed my interests to "girlier" interests and just brought up sports during the interviews if asked about other interests (or if someone had memorabilia in an office), and my interview outcomes afterwards were much, much better.
