the Untied States
The United States is a sports-loving nation. Sports in America take a variety of forms: competitive struggles which draw huge crowds to cheer their favorite team to victory. Athletic games played for recreation anywhere sufficient space is found. Most sports are seasonal. Some sports are called spectator sports as the number of spectators greatly exceeds the number of those playing in the game. Other sports are called participant sports, drawing a crowd of onlookers only on special occasions, such as tournaments. Some sports are commercial and professional, with players who are paid for their participation, and with audiences who pay admission to watch.
