Now I may enjoy watching sports but I know nothing about them. I’m watching ski jumping as I watch this and couldn’t tell you a thing about it. Motorsport is my main thing to watch, while athletics + tennis + ice skating are my sports to do.
I am sure I have missed many sports that others could name.
How the hell did I miss off soccer/football and horse racing that I hate with a passion. Actually watching cricket in a pub is fun when you’re drunk.
The following are people/teams I follow:
Tennis = Williams sisters
Nascar = Patrick, Logano, Harvick, Bowyer, Biffle (who couldn’t with a name like that) & Steward Haas Racing. Definately not either Busch brother
F1 = Rosberg, Button & any team that isn’t Redbull or Farrari
Baseball = Yankee
Sports are just not done in the UK like there are in the USA 🙁 No big school/college/uni anything, no mascots, no tailgating, just over paid idiots.
Also very few true sports bars. Most pubs show soccer and horse racing but none show Nascar and only a select couple show some F1 races. We just tend to get the beers in and watch from home. I miss seating in the bars in NYC.
We do happen to have an American Football team locally, Sussex Thunder, based in Brighton, so just down the road. I should go and support them.
I shall now go and research and other teams I might like.
