No, No, and No.

I used to watch a lot of tennis back when it was actually interesting with characters like John McEnroe, Jimmy Conners, Ivan Lendl, bjorn borg, Boris Becker hell even some of those Sampras v. Agassi matches were good. But tennis has completely lost it's interest for me over the last 10 years or so.

I could never sit an watch an entire bike race, but I do like to check the leader board of the Tour de France. Especially when guys like Greg LeMond or Lance Armstrong are competing.

-On a side note, My brother was a semi professional Cyclist who raced in many of the big races in here in the US. He raced against lance Armstong on a couple of occassions.

Unfortunately he never reached the pinnical of his sport because he refused to use performance enhancers.



j/k :p

or am I?

I'm an American and I couldn't care any less about those three events. An interesting side note, all the people who work in my area are not American born and they followed the World Cup religiously, I'm from the US and I didn't care at all about it, When people from other countries came to drop things off, they would stop and look at the television we have down there and see how the games were going, other Americans would come to drop things off, they didn't care much (maybe more than I did but not much). Just an interesting observation.

Ya know, I actually did kinda follow the world cup this year. I figure if people in every other country in the world think that much of it, I need to at least be on top of things as far as "conversation" is concerned. And you know what? I actually enjoyed the few matches I did watch. Who'da thunk it?

As far as Wimbledon is concerned, I've caught part of matches; but couldn't tellyou who was leading. That guy from Switzerland was really good thought. Can't remember who he was playing Sunday, though....or maybe it was Saturday. Well, either way, I actually like tennis, I just don't watch it that often.

I think Americans do enjoy most international sports. Golf, tennis, boxing, skiing, Hockey, Track & Field, cycling, olympic events, etc.

Granted our "big 3" are Football, Baseball and Basketball, but baseball and hoops have strong international appeal as well.

I think it is mainly just soccer we don't value as highly as much of the world. I think a lot of people in the US do like soccer, but it is far from the #1 sport in the country the way it is in many south american and european countries.

I didnt watch too much of the World Cup but I did catch a few games.
I watch all the tennis I can - no matter what loacation it is at.
I love racing but bike racing is just to slow for me. Give me F1 or MotoGP.

I doubt their lesbians...its just appealling to mens fantasies. 'All the things she said' was not deserving of a number 1. lol. It was more the school uniforms and making out in the rain in the video that got it for them. The one with Dark hair is stunning. :eek:

I think Britain and America just like their own music, and each others.
European popstars tend to be big just in Europe or Asia, but never get heard of in the UK.
We frown upon Euro pop crap. Apart from the teenae lesbian type.
