Americans pay much attention to physical fitness. Many sports and sporting activities are popular in the USA. People participate in many kinds of sports, including major American sports: hockey, baseball, volleyball, football and basketball. Basketball and volleyball have been invented in America.
There is a large choice of sports in America. This can be explained by the size and variety of the country. Another reason of the popularity of sports is the people's love of competition of any kind. One more reason is that Americans use sport activities for teaching social values, such as teamwork and sportsmanship. All this explain why Americans have traditionally done well in many kinds of sports.
Some Americans like active games, and others like quite games. I think that that such games, as golf and crocket, intend for rich elite people. Most popular games in the USA are hockey, American football, baseball, and basketball. Popular among Americans are NHL games. In NHL games play our compatriots: Feudorov, Yashin, Bure brothers. They are ones of the best players in NHL.
American football is like a rugby with kicks. Every player can beat another one. I think, american football is one of the rudest games in the world.
Baseball is played with wooden bat and hard ball. It's called "typical" american game.
Basketball is one of the most spectators game in the USA. It's my favourite game too.
