Hahaha Bob you are so right.

Also basketball, volleyball some American style football. There is also boxing and some martial arts.

Dominos here is considered almost a sport.....Hahahaha.

There are many baseball fields! Lots of basketball hoops in neighborhoods etc. Sports is not part of public school curriculum.

My sport is probably the most popular for us old retired guys here. Going to the beach and watching the young babes in their bikinis.
