Sports No One Cares About
I just saw an article that said that the US was kicked out of a cricket tournament and it got me thinking about whether anyone really cares.
I mean you can call this a little provincial, narcissistic or what have you, but how many people in the US really care about cricket and of those people how many are native born. That is not to suggest that there is anything wrong with immigrants, there is not. But certainly few natives find the sport intriguing. Maybe it is just a question of exposure or lack there of.
Now if you live in Los Angeles and are interested in seeing cricket you could go to Woodley Park and watch it there.
A couple of other sports that are not that big in the US are soccer and hockey. Sure, there are a lot of diehard fans but in the grand scheme of things few people care. When hockey went on strike most people didn’t notice and as for soccer, well check your TV listings and see how often you can find it on any station, let alone one of the networks.
