Re: How popular is Cricket & Rugby in the UK?
I probably could have seen a Fiorentina game since I was in Florence too. Beautiful city although my trip to Italy was a mixed bag.
It is easy to get tired of a sport if you are over-saturated with it.
That is kind of how I am with American Football. They talk about it 24/7/365 even though the regular season only lasts 4 months. It is a good sport, but I don't like the fans.
Never call soccer "football" to them either. They don't understand how a game played by kicking a ball with a foot can be called football.
In the southeast USA college sports is bigger than the pros. The fans can get pretty angry with each other. It is a lot like football fans in England, but maybe not that bad.
