The Ultimate Test?

Since the world cup has been going on I have noticed a massive rivalry between any American and English sport, especially by the refusal to give football its proper name. When I turn my attention to the American sports and English sports, I can’t help but think of the similarities between them; rugby and NFL, cricket and baseball, Nascar and Formula 1 etc.. But it leaves me speculating, if England played America at every sport using their best team from the similar sport, then who would come out on top?

This would mean England Rugby vs. NFL all-star team in one game of NFL and one game of rugby, the cricket team play baseball and vice versa, Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton races whoever the hell is King Nascar. And basketball could do the same with football as, lets face it, we wouldn’t want to leave the most important ones out.

I’m not saying the standard would be amazing, but it would be great entertainment, not to mention that it is very commercially viable for sponsorship deals. Not to mention the fact that it would settle a few arguments, and perhaps create a few more across the Atlantic. I know the team that is specialised in their sport is likely to triumph, but it is just another chance for competition, another chance for underdogs and another chance for victory.
