What sports?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've just been having a conversation in the office here about the effect the British Empire has had on the world in terms of worldwide popular sports.

    As in, if we didn't invent the sport, we certainly helped spread it around the world. And more often than not, at least gave it rules & regulations.
    e.g. Football, Rugby, Tennis, Cricket, & Polo.

    Now if we hadn't have had our empire, & say the French or Germans had, what sports would they have spread?

    French - Speed (White) Flag Raising.
    German - Extreme Morris Dancing (lots of face slapping) whilst wearing leather pants.
    Italians - Extreme Carpentry (crucifixtion)
    Austrian - Extreme Hide & Seek (only family members allowed to play)

    Can anyone think of anymore?
