Wednesday, December 12th, 2012 | 11:22 am (UTC) - You Had To Ask; Question
As someone who does not live in North America, I do not understand the interest in Pro Wrestling, Superhero comics, Baseball, American Football (you either), etc. These areas of cultural identity do not have the mass following this side of the Atlantic.

The question is; Why do you think this is, as the cultural influence of the US on the UK and Europe in general is so great?

I do accept that some of these areas do have a following in the UK, such as Pro Wrestling and Superhero comics and American Football, they are predominately followed by children, (with the exception of American Football).

With the sport situation, I understand it may be something to do with the amount of exposure they get, or do not get, along with the already established sports, (Soccer, Rugby, etc).

With respects to comic books, it does seem that we over here do not get, (as adults), the deeper analysis of comic books. Is this like J R R Tolkien being envois of "real" cultural mythologies, such as the Celtic, Germanic and Norse, therefore mythologies need to be invented?

Sorry for the length of this question and keep doing what you are doing as I enjoy you channel!
