Also the most expensive sport on the planet and the pinnacle of motorsport - Formula One.

Future champion of F1 and rookie sensation, Britain's Lewis Hamilton at today's Monaco Grand Prix in Monte Carlo.

Hamilton and Alonso - what a combination!

Being a big race fan, I shouldn't demean soccer for being "boring", hehe. Still, unless it's top-level footy teams playing, most televised soccer matches have the excitement level of watching a bunch of insects trying to wade through a large trough of molasses.

You like Toronto FC as well? I think for the most part MLS is football for pansies, but there's something different about Toronto FC. They have an almost European feel to them. Especially the fans. As someone aptly put it on another forum, BMO Field is like the Anfield of MLS. I still can't believe that at the match against Columbus Crew, the tiny section of travelling Toronto FC fans were the ones making the most noise. They have a long way to go until they're playing quality football (and honestly, no MLS team will EVER manage to match English Premiership quality, so I'm not expecting that) but I'll be supporting them until they get there.
Toronto FC is really catching on in Canada for a team that's only played 8 matches and that goes down to the level of excitement created by the fans. They are the only team in MLS that has supporters that sing songs("We are sailing stormy waters, To be near you, to be free....") like they do in Europe so it certainly gives them a level of 'authenticity', if that's the right word, that was missing in MLS. Hopefully it will spread.

I think it further goes down to the fact that Canadians are perhaps more 'European' in their outlook and that translates to their interest in European sport or global sports like football, Formula 1, cricket, and rugby.

Toronto FC is catching on, 'cause it's about time Toronto had a football team. There are a lot of footy fans here from all leagues which is pretty amazing for a North American city. Hope they do well.

All people who think footy is boring probably only caught the premier league!
