Football is just so popular over in the US then as it is over here in the UK. I prefer footy to Cricket but neither really floats my boat.

I enjoy football but I much prefer basketball. Cricket is a game that has perplexed me for years. I just dont understand the thrill in bowling over wickets.

At least WWE might offer us some NARRATIVE.
