A Closer Look At The Many Ways To Enjoy Sports Here In The United States
Sports matter here in the United States, there is simply no doubting this fact. From the womens World Cup to NFL games t the 2019 rugby World Cup, there are many sporting events held on a yearly basis both here in the United States as well as all throughout the world as a whole. Here in the United States, however, there are five sports that capture the most attention.
Football, of course, is one of the most popularly watched sports all throughout the country, with more than 37% of all people tuning in to watch football games on a regular basis, if not even investing in sports travel packages, as so many people, so many football enthusiasts, end up doing at some point in time. For many people, football is a great way to kick back on a Sunday, to spend time with people that they care about, and to invest their energy into. For most people, football is more than something that they enjoy watching – it’s a hobby, a passion, and even, in some cases, a way of life.
Aside from football, the four other major sports in the United States garner a good deal of popularity and attention and, of course, passion themselves. These sports include basketball and soccer. In addition to that, hockey and baseball are also considered to be hugely popular here in the United States. Though much of what sports you follow depends on things like region, the success of the local team, and how you grow up, there are certainly no shortage of fans for the above mentioned sports here in the United States.
Of course, these are far from the only sports that people follow. Major sporting events like the womens World Cup capture the attentions of many people who would not otherwise tune into a certain sport (or, in the case of events like the womens world cup, in relation to the gender of the people playing the sport) find themselves captivated. But many a smaller sport still attracts loyal followings, even with the absence of a big event like the typical womens World Cup. Such is the case for sports that aren’t in the top five sports here in the United States but still fall within the top ten, impressive enough in their own right.
Such sports include tennis, which is popular not only here in the United States but all around the world as well. Golf also falls within the top ten sports here in the United States, as does motor racing and badminton. And wresting and martial arts have become quite popular too. When such sports have large events (like the aforementioned womens World Cup), they tend to draw considerable crowds, even when they are held overseas. Many of these sports are also important in the Olympics as well, with the United States drawing much acclaim by the performance of athletes in these fields.
But no matter what sports you’re personally invested in and what sporting events, from the womens World Cup to the Olympics themselves, there are many ways that sports can be enjoyed. Of course, they can be appreciated from the comfort of your own home. For those who don’t have the money for, say, a womens World Cup package, watching on TV is often the next best option, and one that can be made into a social activity as well, especially if people in your life are interested in the same sports – and the same teams, of course – that you are.
But you can also actively participate in these sports as well. In fact, even if you don’t play competitively, participating in a sport like tennis or even martial arts can be a great way to burn calories and get into shape while doing something that you genuinely love. And there are many kids’ teams out there as well, serving as a great way to teach kids about the values of teamwork and putting in hard work for an end result. Such teams can also teach how to win and how to lose.
