Default What's the biggest sports in your country?

With Euro and Wimbledon right now, do the English want Henman to win Wimbledon more or they rather England wins Euro? That is what I've been thinking. Therefore, I want to ask you what is the most important sports in your own country?

In US, the most important is American Football and Baseball, I would think, and cannot decide which is bigger than the other. Perhaps others can tell me.

So please state the biggest sports and don't forget to tell which country you are from.

Thanks. Merci. Danke. Gracias. Grazie. Dank U.

I'm from the US, and our biggest sports (as if it's no surprise to anyone here) are American football, baseball, and basketball.

And it all depends on the season of the year. Since basketball is over with, everyone's attention is turned toward America's favorite pastime, baseball and the World Series. Then in the fall and winter months, it's football and the SuperBowl.

As sigma said, it's baseball and American football. The latter is particularly horrible.

Default Re: What's the biggest sports in your country?

Soccer has to be the most popular in Britain and Id say more people would want England to win Euro 2004. However Im not in that camp and would prefer a Henman win
