Sports analogies are the norm, as are sports terms and catch phrases. People talk about sports, even when they’re not actually talking about sports directly.
Sports bars are common everywhere. People who love sports and love to hang out and have a good time can’t resist getting together in public or at each other’s homes to watch the big game!
In the US, football has basically replaced baseball as the national pastime. Soccer is very popular around the world (and is called football in some countries). Tennis, golf, hockey, polo, racing, and many other sports are also widely enjoyed.
Why is it that people love sports so much? Is it the hype in the media? Is it the activity involved, the physical movement? Is it the competitive nature of sports? Is it the adrenaline rush people get when they play and watch sports? Is it the connection people feel to each other and the camaraderie that results when people partake in sports activities together?
