American sports.

#1
Morning fellow insomniacs and friends in other timezones.

I'm up doing some Open Uni stuff with the TV on in background when a US baseball show starts.

Questions:

Is baseball just rounders for kuntz?

Is American football just rugby for poofs in pads?

In fact, are all American sports just shoite?

I like watching the ladies beach volleyball...a thoroughly good match of two teams battling it out across the tight confines of the field of play...and of course the camel toes help aswell.

Yes, yes and yes.

With the added proviso that American 'football' is possibly the most mindlessly boring sport in the world. 4 teams of steroid-filled, padded nancy boys waddling about a field for 20 seconds at a time before collapsing on a bench sucking down oxygen while a completely different team wearing the same shirt as they take over.

Ditch the body armour and play the entire game with one group of players, and all you have is a strictly limited form of rugby for beginners.

It's only the cheerleaders that make the game remotely watchable, and the cameramen prefer to focus on the big sweaty men. Just giving their audience what they want, I suppose.

You forgot the Indie 500! None of that testosterone-laden flinging your car around corners, nosirreee, just go round and round and round and round . . . . and round. FFS what's the point?

Freud would have had have a field day if he had ever studied septic sports.

Obviously you guys never heard of Lacrosse. Hockey, Soccer (Futbol), and Rugby kinda all rolled into 1.

Unless I am sadly mistaken I dont think Lacrosse is an American invented sport?

Ahem. Not being one to choke you and "up" the Yanks but UIAM Lacrosse was "invented" by real Americans, i.e. "Indians"

Soz.

Lacrosse is a sport invented by American Indians as the_guru pointed out. I think east coast tribes as I don't see it as often in the west/midwest.

In any event, not as popular as American Football but it's a sport I played as a lad in high school. Fairly challenging and rough enough for you lot.

There is a version of American football where the same team stays on with limited subs.
The name escapes me at the moment , it's fantastic game to watch and I hear it's a players game.

Are you talking about Arena football? Good lord go out and actually play football, esp you malcontents who bash it. Silly Brits if you can't hang just say so.

Sorry LJONESY...

Can you please go away and re-invent the English language, re-invent most historical events and claim that before your country existed there was nothing but a guy called Jesus who was actually American...

Fooking man nosher!
