Fat yanks???? Jesus.....it's like a foreign person's favorite thing to say. But it's so played out, it's not even funny.
I'll take Basketball, Baseball, Football > Soccer, Cricket, Rugby any day of the week. But it's all where you're from of course. Someone in Brazil or something, Soccer is their nations favorite sport.
I don't get why you're so butt hurt about it. What's also funny is no matter what anyone in the UK says or does, they will always have a sore spot talking about the US for some reason. I mean it's like their goal to attempt to try and talk s**t abotu this country for some reason. It's a bit strange.
But if you're going to respect some soccer player who runs around and kicks a ball in a net, than acts like he got shot in the leg when he was only tripped up, than respect the skill that professional basketball, football, and baseball players have as well.
Oh and who won more medals than any other country yet again at the summer olympics???
