crys The one American thing or pastime you find hard to get into...?

I can't get into American Sports. I've tried but I just can't. Football is the only game I can 'somewhat' watch and follow without getting distracted. Everything else (be it baseball, basketball or hockey) bores me shitless! It may have a lot to do with the fact that I grew up watching Soccer (the real Football), Cricket and Tennis and have been living in the US for only about 6 years now!

Sports has become the one thing that I find the hardest to get into in this country! What about you guys?

I thought you'd simply agree wholeheartedly with my original post!

Football

I find baseball horribly boring to watch but it's kind of fun to go out to a ball game.

Root beer.

Grits.

That said, I do find it amusing that the voiceover, in a perfectly conversational tone, will say something like 'could cause heart attack and liver failure'. Nice.

yeah...like the ads for meds that cure yellow toenails. and the possible side effects are like "may cause kidney or liver failure, severe diarrhea, etc." all for some toenail fungus.

first off, apple pie is awesome

and before i get accused of hating all american sports, i have nothing against basketball and quite enjoy watching hockey (although the latter's canadian isn't it? )


anaway:

american football

baseball (this is supposed to be THE national pastime isn't it?)

american news people, especially the local ones. morons.

driving on the right-hand side of the road (ok, it's not just an american thing)

the adverts on tv

the hummer



that's all i can think of
