PostSubject: What sports do you like?   Thu Jul 22, 2010 5:44 pm

Well for me number one would have to be football - (that's soccer to you Americans) - very disapointed with England's performance in the world cup, how ever Europe did show South America which continent is best at football with EU countries taking 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

Other supports, obviously depending on season, I use to go to watch Kent (my county) in the cricket with my family when I was younger, still enjoy playing although never plan on going to Lords and watching or anything like that. I always enjoyed Rounders whilst in secondary schools and just generally as a good summer outside alternative to football; its similar to the Baseball (which was first played in England 19th centuary as opposed to Rounders in Tudor times, OMG old lol) except Rounders is a far simpler game, generally we just set up 5 bases, split into 2 teams one team fielded the other batted, aim to get round the bases before the ball reaches the bowler, if you get round in 1 you get a rounder (1 point) if you get round by going base to base then you don't, if you get caught between a base then your out - im sure its much like baseball actually. Its not a sport that you watch on TV since it's more of just a game played for enjoyment rather than professionally. I also enjoy rugby, disipite not being big built I was still not to bad at, I could stand my ground well enough - I never really get why in the similar American Football you have to wear all that armour? can anyone explain its point? Rugby doesn't need the same protection, and it's an upper class sport.

And of course I love the Olympics when it was on, great boost to moral with Team GB coming 3rd/4th in 2008 especially since were hosting 2012, it's seen as special when we do well, we dont come to expect it like China and the US.


Sorry if I rambled to much. The forum has seemed to have died since I went for my induction week at uni!

I love Football (American football), I can only stand soccer if it is the World Cup, I don't really like baseball or basketball. The only sports I really like to watch then are football and world cup soccer :/

:O Only American Football - jw why do American Football players wear all that body armour, our Rugby players don't wear anything like that. Do you play at all? (Association) Football or American Football?

lol, not Brits, when it comes to sport we play as England, Scotland and Wales (apart from Olympics); for some weird reason the Welsh seem to excel in Rugby... meh, they have to be talented in something I guess.

Indeed we get plenty of ABE supporters once England qualifies in the world cup, mainly from Scotland.

My cousin plays Rugby for his uni, and has ended up with a broken collarbone, fractured knee and god knows what else from scrums, violent tackles etc, much is the norm in Rugby; and he, and every rugby player don't wear pads. I suppose you'd have to play both games to know why for sure. Their are probebly some major differences that explain why the pads are necessary, but as a country we don't play American-football and it isn't shown on tv so its something that we just presume to be similar.

On an unrelated note, Foo Fighter, I don't approve of the homophobic comments in your post, consider that a warning.

________

And secondly on a personal note Football is a sport I love more than any other, England is fortunate to have some the best clubs in the world, and some pretty decent players. Its pure fantasy that they cry when they lose, one I'm not sure where you get your basis, but yes they are overpaid but then these top clubs pay high taxes and are a valuable asset to the British economy. As the worlds most popular sport, by a long way, most people will disagree with you.

Cricket is a traditional English sport, I don't enjoy watching it but I do enjoy playing it.

I am proud of our countries sporting accomplishments. Most of the best and most popular sports in the world were invented by the British - most English, these include:

Football (soccer)
Rugby League
Rugby football
Rugby Union
Cricket
Baseball
Netball
Rounders
Tenis
Golf
Hockey (the modern variation)

I personally love being British and i'm proud of the fact.

Its no problem really, I didn't really think you were meaning to be offensive, but the terms and conditions provided by our host forbid it. Our opinions on patriotism differ greatly, but we are both entitled to our opinions.
