    I presume these are either baseball or your football teams you are refering to. I dunno which.

    At an English football game Liverpool (Beatle's city) were hammering a London team Tottenham 4-0. So the Tottenham supporters decided to have a laugh by singing and cheering.....let's pretend we scored a goal. btw...Spurs=Tottenham. Not that I have any interest in football. Yes, I know, I am a boring b*****d.

    You know that brings up a curious never hears anything about England and baseball. Certainly someone over there likes it. I mean most sports, no matter where they originated, are enjoyed the world over these days.

    It's pretty big in the Netherlands; they call it "Honkbal". Because there are 4 Honks. And there's a ball....

    Really, no kidding around.

    There is an annual rugby tournament at one of the regional parks hereabouts.
    US pro sports all have players from other nations. Several Japanese pitchers are very successful.

    Major football programs earn lots of money for their university so a coach capable of building a successful program is worth a big salary.

    Like UN1, I am quite curious as well. Why is it just the US?
