In America, it's baseball. However, I feel as if *American* football is more popular..Perhaps that's because I live in Texas, which is football country. Baseball is popular, but I feel the World Series pales in comparison to the Super Bowl.
Thoughts on the figure skating controversy? Adelina Sotnikova took the gold medal, but many have argued that Yuna Kim should have won. Kim was a reigning Olympic champion. I personally think the Korean girl skated better or at least with more maturity..But, I'm not a judge who is trained in the technicalities of the sport. But what I do find concerning is that four of the judges were from Eastern Europe. One of the judges, a Russian, is married to the president of the Figure Skating Federation of Russia.
Before I didn't think figure skating judging was fixed, but now I'm not so sure.
