@Chocolate Lantern: Maybe I should start a 900 calling service. People can call for $1.99 a minute (or whatever the going rate is). "
1-900-CAL-GMAN; we could get this going, You put up a list of comics you are willing to read for the week, charge $1.99 per minute sounds like a solid business!

they didn't invent basketball or hockey and they seem to be enjoying them as well as being competitive, could it be that you may be taking this a little personal that you should be? "
We did invent Basketball lol. Basketball was invented in Massachusetts at a YMCA. "
Actually it was invented by a Canadian in Springfield, Massachusetts

" I think American can't accept football because they're just not the best at it. Why is the "world series" called the "world series" when as far as I know it's just America in it? Take a look at American football. Just rugby with armour and more little rest breaks. Baseball? Most players either stand or sit around for most of the game. Football's fast paced and takes a real talent. "
You forgot about the now 1 Canadian team the Toronto Blue Jays (rest in peace Expos lol)

Actually I've found that a good portion of Americans don't care for hockey as much as football, baseball, and basketball. Not taking this personal I just cant stand a person who is so  arrogant  that they refuse to watch a sport (also knows very little about the sport) and then calls it a "sissy sport" or says its "not a real sport"

" I think you're out of your mind. Soccer isn't hugely popular like the MLB, NFL, or NBA on the professional level. But it is extremely popular amongst children and that's where you have to build your base. That is why soccer has risen in the last few years because that's how a sport gets big. To say all Americans don't consider soccer a real sport just shows you don't know many Americans. I was never a huge soccer fan, but I wouldn't say its not a sport, its a hell of a sport and a hard one to play. "

"To say all Americans don't consider soccer a real sport just shows you don't know many Americans"
I've lived in Michigan, Indiana, Connecticut, and Illinois and have lived in the USt most of my life, 90% of the people I know are Americans. Also I never said " All Americans" or the word "All" in my blog. You must be crazy to think that more people watch the MLB, NFL, or NBA over the English Premier League or Serie A not to mention WORLD CUP or any International match. Those leagues are full of international talent and are watched by soccer fans in every country! Most people out side of the US could care less about the NBA NFL or MLB.
