I also didn't care one bit about the super bowl or american football. I'm European so for me, I am into REAL football, the world's game, the beautiful game. And those sissies in the NFL would get destroyed playing Rugby among real men, with no protection and without 354 time outs and substitutions. In rugby, even if a player is bleeding and laying on the ground, the team's docs come to check him and administer him, even stitch him right there and then while play continues around them. NFL? a bunch of sissies! Rugby is where REAL tough men play!

I'm sure the NHL would knock out every Rugby player.

I also don't give a shit about the game. I have more important things to do with my spare time to do than to watch football. It bores the hell out of me and I really can't see why people get so excited over it. All my friends watch it, literally every single one but me lol. I even know so many chics that watch it. To me, it's actually a turn off when a girl watches sports. Women wearing jerseys, drinking beer at a bar and screaming over a team...just turns me off, no matter how hot they are. I prefer watching things like MMA.

I don't watch regular season. But I watched the game last night. The 49ers were robbed of the Super Bowl.

The Ravens suck. Enough said.

I think the Brits are the least receptive to it but the NFL managed to win Canada over so they know to push hard in other anglo markets.


I agree with what you state here but let's be fair -- half of those square-jawed Aryan supermen are Black.


Well, he's right about the quarterbacks. The ones highly regarded, like Manning or Montana, tended to be white, whereas black ones like McNabb, were more complimented on their athletic abilities as oppose to spot decision making.

But sure, in sports, winning trumps racial categorization except for the Boston Celtics of the 80s, which was the most beloved near all white American team.


Parish was the only Black guy on that team back then. Yeah man racist Beantown was proud of 80s Celtics with narcissism. LOL

I'm a nerd and all, but I like sport. Football's okay with me. I don't watch it regularly, but I did watch the Superbowl. The problem I have with football is that it's four quarters of 15 minutes each, but games last at least 3 hours. That's only a third of the time spent on actual gameplay. It's a bit disappointing. There might be a really exciting play that lasts a minute, but the they have to set up and they go to commercial and the next play only lasts like a second because someone got tackled almost immediately. Better than soccer I think, where there's almost no score most of the time.

I'll go to minor league baseball or college basketball games with my dad. Great times. I've also started getting into Formula 1 starting halfway through last season and I'm looking forward to watching it this season.

Ah, don't forget Dennis Johnson.

But yeah, all the bigots piled onto the C's; it was actually kinda embarrassing, considering that they were good but not because Bird & McHale were white but because they moved the ball a lot.

Ooops-a-daisy. You're right. Sorry. I had forgotten about him. Italian-Americans from Howard Beach, Canarsie, and Bensonhurst used to beat up guys of ALL RACES fro Beantown whom came down to NYC (for the BoSox vs. Yanks @ Yankee Stadium) and walked around drunk calling Italians and Italian-Americans "guido" and got his a.ss pwned.

That NYC vs. Boston s.hit was so 70s and 80s though.

I had a Polish-Italian-descent middle-aged female boss in Chicago back in 2007 whom was from Beantown and when she found out I am from The Bronx, she was like, "Ooooo boy. Really? (in a monotone voice)".
Then she and I had bursted out laughing and things became amicable from thereon out. She actually was a cool-a.ss boss even though she's an AW.

Wasn't that in the movie, 'Summer of Sam', where those guys from Pelham Bronx clobbered the Red Sox fan on the lower east side?

...and in real life that people got pwned like that for talking recklessly about Italians and/or the Bronx Bombers. You are a true north-easterner; no wonder I like ya. LOL You watch east-coast-based movies. Just like "Can you make spaghetti with sauce?" in A Bronx Tale. LOL!!! The NE used to be so epic until the late 90s. :-/

I guess I would get my arse pwned too if I were to go to Boston and run around saying "Beantown is this that and the third." LOL

For one, there have been gun fights, nevermind getting simply punk-ed, between fair weather fans circa Yankee Stadium. I used to know someone who was a witness to one. He got out of there, as soon as the first shot was fired. And thus, it's not wise to go there, wearing Boston paraphernalia and talking smack about NY teams, even if it's Patrick Ewing bashing :wink: which is a national pastime.

Looks like there's some write up, on that moniker in the urban dictionary ...

Did not watch NO Superbowl at all! I never watched American football in general. The game is awkward to me. Yes, everyone is watching it like crazy besides me. But it feels good not to care about useless game and does not bring any benefit into your life.
Besides, I just don't understand watching sports in general, unless you are learning and using it in your life. What is a pleasure behind seeing a few dudes scoring? It's not you scoring, not your friends, not your relatives, why do you care? Americans seem to be the biggest on watching sports. Other countries are ONLY big on watching International Games when they cheer for their national teams - I can somewhat justify that, but still watching those games are useless as well.
