    The US apathy towards the most popular sport in the world (the real FOOT BALL) is fully reciprocated by the rest of the world.

    People all over the world (with few exceptions like Japan, Venezuela, etc...) doesn't understand shit about baseball (and even less about american football).

    They see a weird guy throwing a ball 1, 2, 3 times, another weirdo with a huge glove trying to catch the ball and a third misfit with a huge bat threatening to crush his skull at any time.

    Then when the crazy dude with the giant bat finally manages to hit the ball everybody starts running like there was no tomorrow while people all over the world scratches their heads in disbelief trying to understand the purpose of all that madness. Trying to understand why all hell broke loose just because the ball was hit.

    The whole world watches this bizarre spectacle and ask themselves:

    WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT????

    :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

    The Gods Must Be Crazy

    The Gods Must Be Crazy is a 1980 film. Set in Botswana and South Africa, it tells the story of Xi, a Sho of the Kalahari Desert (played by Namibian San farmer Nǃxau) whose band has no knowledge of the world beyond.

    And Americans are supposed to appreciate a bunch of guys in short pants running back and forth kicking each other for what an hour and a half?. Why waste all that energy and rarely score a run?
    No point to it, but I actually know who Ronaldo is. My ex is Brazilian. I never really got into the game but Geeze those people can party when they win the World Cup!

    Ernie, my man, calm down...

    My post was not meant to depreciate the two all american sports in any way... It was not my intention to say they are boring, weird, etc...

    I was just trying to portray the absolute ignorance, the deep lack of knowledge of those two sports among most people around the world.

    Check out the conversation I had with Ghook a few weeks ago:

    Nobody even knows what those names mean outside of the USA and a few other countries, Ghook.

    95% of the world have never heard the words Bears, Yankees, Giants, Rangers, Jets, etc, etc... in their entire lives and don't have the slightest idea what they mean besides their normal meaning in English.

    If you tell them all those teams cited above belong to the same sport they won't doubt you for a second.


    Then Ghook gave me a reasonable answer:

    This is US Messageboard no? So what different does it make? It's not like I went onto the Uganda messageboard talking about the NFL!
