        • Could it possibly be that, on the whole, the USA basically suck at it? If the USA were "world class", you'd maybe take more notice? Maybe I'm well off the mark.

          The reason we Europeans probably thrive on it is because it's all we've got that we make a big deal of? You guys make a big deal of EVERYTHING, even college football? (That's not me having a dig at you guys) ......, but you have much more choice. Edinburgh University were playing in the Scottish Cup last week. Lucky if there were 80 people at it. You guys pack in 110,000, for a fucking college/university game?

          Yes there is basketball, US football, Ice hockey and baseball here, (Europe) but no one gives a flying fuck.

          Seriously though, how you view soccer as a sport in itself, is exactly how Europeans view baseball.

          And what about that age old question....., why is it "The World Series" when it's only you cunts playing in the fucking thing???? How do you know there is not some aboriginal baseball team from Alice Springs that could kick top American teams asses! Love to see it. Like Cool Runnings, there is a movie in there.

              We played Japan one year and kicked the crap out of them. No one has asked since.

                  There's a team in Canada, aka "America's Hat", the Toronto Blue Jays. See, international.

                  • Baseball is fairly international, just not Europe. Latin America and the Far East is pretty into it.

                        • It's just taking "Rounders" WAAAAY too seriously.

                          And it may be fully international (except Europe) but these other international teams don't play in your "World Series". At the end of the season, a "World Champion" is crowned??

                          When Hibs win the Championship league this season, I suppose I could get away with calling Hibernian, American champions also? Fk ye'z, I think I will.

                              • I'm never going to get why people root for sports like they are rooting for sports teams. If you like the sport, you like the sport. No need to denigrate some other sport. It's about as annoying as the evergreen Internet topic, "Is it a sport?"
