Such a big fan that you refuse to spell it "bocce". Nice.

Cricket's global significance is unquestionable because it has the billion+ Indian market sewn up. Remove India, and it's not all that significant on a global scale. Just something played by countries of the ol' British Empire.

That's one thing I admire about the USA, arguably the greatest country of all time. Founded upon the most ideal values, harking back to the Revolutionary days, that they were so fed up with the Brits that not only did they achieve independence, but they also rejected all British cultural traditions. The quaint, contemporarily underdeveloped games (not sports) of cricket and football and rugby were to0 British for them, so they invented their own. Same with reinventing the way words were spelt. I love that! British Imperialism was one of the most devastating things to happen to mankind, and the Americans resisted it and told the Poms to rack off. And the US has my utmost admiration for that reason, even if things did get a little twisted in later years and even today. Even if Gridiron and Ice Hockey are a sheer bore to me.

I'm just raving here.

I could watch that 1,000x and the 1,001th viewing would still crack me up. He sounds so fucking frustrated, too, before he belts out the song.....fucking perfect.

So you're saying that baseball was a response to Britain's colonization of India?

greatest FOOTBALL (as in the sport that actually makes the contact of a foot and a ball mean something) goal EVER

just listen/read the broadcaster

YouTube - Gol de Maradona contra Inglaterra '86



this is like 2nd best, watch the back replay to REALLY get it






ETS: I have nothing agains England... it's a coincidence that all 3 goals are against England teams.

also because they suck
