I came across this idiom in a Youtube English idiom course. It goes like

I'm on a sports [the single word I can't recall].

Basically, it means that I'm just not a sports person, however, I've started showing some interest recently or I was attracted to sports during a past (often short) period of time.

The phrase is:

I'm on a sports kick.

The Oxford Living Dictionary defines this sense of kick as

[with modifier] A temporary interest in a particular thing.
