    Well what does it matter? That wasn't the point I was making at all.

    Cricket is an English sport, yet it's India's national sport.

    Anyway, Canada is in America....NA shifty

    I like watching the scenery. It never really gets interesting until the last 20k or so anyway.

    Oh, I was on about track cycling. But yeah, unless there's a major attack on a climb early on then I'd agree with that. For sprint stages it only gets exciting when the peloton start organising to hunt and chase down the breakaway group.

    Yep, been round Manchester and Meadowbank velodromes. The banking looks a lot steeper when you are cycling round the bottom of it Laughing

    Worst to play is volleyball, I'm shit at it despite being fairly tall. And it hurts my forearms. I just stay close to the net to spike it on bitches.

    Worst to watch, probably baseball. If the Yankees arent playing the game is so slow, and the season is so long that 40-50 games just feel like they don't fucking matter. When it gets to playoff time though, it gets so intense and is great, but generally I can't watch a full game the Yankees arent in.

    Aww so jealous! Sad It always looks like it'd be hard to keep your balance around the corners because of the banking but I can't imagine it being particularly difficult?

    Nah it's not too difficult to keep it upright, just stay above 12-13mph when you're on the banking and you will be fine. The closest one to you will be Manchester I guess?

    Basketball, American Football, AFL and Cricket are all fucking awesome to play (I'm a wicket-keeper in Cricket so I always get the ball)

    Worst to play is Rugby even though it is our national sport its just fucking horrible to play, I played for my school and our team kept getting penalised and I don't even know why Neutral

    Worst to watch IMO is Golf. Its soooooooooo boring to watch, and as much as I love Cricket I get bored watching it Sad

    It's still arguably one of your biggest sports.

    Hockey is easily one of the America's least favourite sports. American Football, Baseball, Basketball and Nascar Suspect are all more popular across their country.
    Hockey is #1 here in Canada
    I see a lot of Basketball hate but it seems more of a lack of understanding the game. NBA makes a joke out of the sport though in my opinion with many rules that nullify the need for real strategy and team play. NCAA basketball is the sport in it's purest form imho and the Final Four tourny is a blast.
    NFL bores me to death. CFL is more exciting but doesn't have the quality players. Baseball is baseball; fun to go to the park on a warm summer day but keep it off my TV at home.
    I personally keep to Hockey, MMA and Soccer.

    Yeah, I think it's the only (proper) track in the country with the Olympic one being built. I imagined it being like that, I'd love to try for myself though.
