the most popular sport..

Postby damon » Fri Mar 18, 2005 9:31 pm

I´m from Colombia. In my country the most popular sport is Soccer. Although we like every sport where a Colombian is playing or particpating. I think in South America, the most popular sport is Soccer. you can play it in any place, only you need a ball and four objects for make the porterys. (how do you say ¨porterias¨in english?)

I am from Hong Kong, from my pont of view, the most popular sport here is badminton.Since there are not many open space for Hong Kong people to do excerise at outdoor, so there are not many outdoor sportsgroung in Hong Kong like tennis court. Also, the Hong Kongers are very busy here, so they do not have much time to do excerises, so I hope in the future, there will be more outdoor sportsgroungs , like tennis court in Hong Kong, since i love playing tennis.

[quote="simplyblessedwithlove"][quote="pirate"] I know the King in the US & the Philippines is Basket Ball. In UK it's cricket above soccer.
Right?[/quote]
Americans love American's football, baseball, and basketball. Players from those three categories can reach millions in salary.[/quote]



Yup! You're right!!!

Well no you are wrong. I lived in London for 14 years and believe me football is the king of sports in the UK. Cricket is popular but only in summer. Football, especially the Premieship is the most watched league in the world too..long live football.

BASKETBALL

Postby zamir » Sat Aug 06, 2005 3:09 pm

Hi! I'm Zamir Albelar of the Philippines. Here ion the our country, the most popular sport is basketball. Why basketball? if you visit here, you can see baskethoops just around the corner of every street. We are addicted to that sport, that's according to me, even if our national sport is "SIPA."

In Italy it's the same as in Brazil: football is the most popular sport!
As regards cricket, it's not played here and when I was in England, I have never been able to understand its rules :(
Do you think it's an interesting sport? Or is it boring as it seems to me?
