I can't even begin to fathom how this would ever work in the UK.

Cripes! It's not just two cities in that case, it's two countries and the stadia are 1500 miles apart. Flipping nuts.

In the 38 games in which ALB played in goal for us, we averaged 1.53 points per game which, had they been over the course of a single season, would have seen us challenging for the play offs. This at a time when we were otherwise struggling against relegation. Oh, and didn't Mick Mills have terrific posture.

Maybe we could share a team with Rome or something, finally ridding ourselves of the need for that friendly...

The one thing that kept me from following sports in the USA is knowing that the next season your home team. Could be moved out of state. This seems to be all the more reason to not follow the sports there

Cities really get held hostage by these teams too. If you look at the Rams and the number they tried to pull on St Louis before ultimately leaving... mamma.

baseball's biggest problem is... baseball. Way too much of it. 162 game season + play-offs is insane.

They have their aficionados (including my son who is a Broncos nut and goes to all of the London American Football games) but I wouldn't choose to watch any.

Crazy stuff. It would be like having a football team in Wimbledon and moving them to some sh1thole like Milton Keynes...

My hobbies include being quiet during trips, clapping with songs, and diabetes.

I actually really enjoy baseball. I like the nostalgia and the tradition. The experience reminds me of cricket somewhat. Plus I appreciate the complete lack of hyper masculinity that you get around other US sports.

Saying that, day time midweek games don't exactly scream 'Sold Out' do they?

It's quite common in rugby league in Australia - some of the teams in the NRL are (or were) joint ventures of pre-existing clubs, who have maintained separate youth setups and stadiums.

St George Illawarra and Wests Tigers both still split their games between the grounds of their parent clubs. The Tigers are from two different suburbs of Sydney (although the grounds are still 40km apart), but St George Illawarra play in both Sydney and Wollongong

Maybe they need a 20/20 version. Five innings bish bash bosh.

That's where you're going wrong, dating a loser that likes eggball.

I love to shag cups.
