    Basketball no. #2 in Italy? it wasn't anywhere close to that even in its best days in the Eighties...TV ratings on free tv (1 game a week) are about 0.3% (apart for the Olimpia Milano games, which go up to 0.5/0.6)...there are just 1 or 2 exceptions a year for the possible game #7 of the final series if there's Milano on the court, but we still talk of 4/5% ratings on the 2nd or 3rd major Italian public channel... Euroleague games are not even broadcasted (they're on the eurosport player, with about 80000 subscribers in a 60-million people Nation)... NBA is only on pay-tv since the Middle Age (we're talking of 50/60k average for the RS and 150/200k spectators for the finals)... if this is our second most popular sport... and for what concerns F1 and MotoGP, they should write Ferrari and Valentino Rossi, because without those 2, nobody would watch a single race (apart for the usual few die hard fans, but this is common to all disciplines in all Countries) Cycling is indeed our 2nd most popular discipline... and no comment on Golf, Rugby or Tennis being more popular than Alpine Skiing or Swimming (actually, no comment on Golf at all...I guess we are no more than a few thousends here in Italy to know that golf is not only a Volkswagen car model )... p.s. they don't even name Boxing, but here it's still a big sport...if only there weren't many idiots trying to boycott it (together with all fighting sports) and they could still broadcast it in prime time on free TV (which at the moment is illegal), a good Boxing fight would make very good tv ratings (Clemente Russo and Roberto Cammarelle finals in London 2012 are 2 among the most watched sport events of the last 10 years outside the "magic circle" -Football, Ferrari, Valentino and Road Cycling)... and I don't go back to the Mike Tyson's prime (when his fights were broadcasted live on free tv and replied in prime time the day after)...he used to have soccer-alike tv ratings... I appreciate the effort, but they should live here for a while to make an idea of how things works (the sad truth is that outside the socalled "magic circle", all the remaining sports are just for the die hard fans...the average Italian people don't even know they exists)...

    First: i was young, now im not asking that kind of question to anybody Second: like the most part of the argentinians descend from Europe, is not wire to ask here if you descend from spanish, italian, german, english etc and is not probably to someone react bad for that, i dont have very present the cultural diferences in that time, in fact in Argentina many things are not ofensive and in the rest of the world they are.

    If you're not familiar with things, I honestly don't know why. It's all about how someone reacts to them and how they are asked (if someone would ask me in a friendly way if I'm a gypsy, why not answer friendly?).

    Pretty sure that Kensington will be the first group to have 3 TISC appearances, and also the second artists overall to make a triple (after Eddy Grant). Can anyone confirm this?

    Someone should remake the "what sports are popular in your nation?" thread.

    Every game in the World Series gets a small article on the general sites, and if something odd happens or a Dutch player does something interesting you'll read it there, but most of the regular season doesn't exist Of course, like I said, there's always die hard fans for everything, but apart from them baseball (and especially MLB) is incredibly small. Wouldn't say it is 100% ignored, but most people probably won't be able to name more than one team (Yankees, obviously), if any. Dutch competition doesn't get much attention neither.

    Asian Games men's qualifiers going on right now, they will give 4 quota for the games. I think it's the first time I see playing any tournament, good for them. On the other hand, after winning bronze in indoor WC Iran is not even participating, so they won't even go to the Asian Games. What gives? Also Pan american YOG qualifiers (M&W) started today, with YouTube livestream in PAHF channel if anyone interested.

    Great to see the number of medal winning nations topping Sochi already! The record of 25 could be under threat as Sweden, China, Poland, Kazakhstan and Czech Republic all have good chances of a medal.

    What about the most famous Roma ghetto of Central Europe the unique and legendary "Lunik IX" outside of Košice The city already decided to build a big wall all around (and actually build one), but EU stopped the project saying it is anti-human or so, so they had to destroy it
