After England was knocked out of the world cup at the weekend, many concluded that the English are simply not very good at football. Sorry folks. I would like to find out

which sport you all think England is best at, and also which sport Dorchester
is best at?
I heard on
the radio that someone somewhere (apologies for not hearing the name of the
researcher) did a survey of sports in different countries around the world and
found that countries in the southern hemisphere are best built for playing
football. The same research found that the English are actually best built for
handball. Great, what even is that?
So why is it
that football is seen as the most popular sport in our country when we’re not
very good at it? Technically cricket is considered our national sport. Personally
I think we’ve got a pretty good cricket team and it’s also fairly popular, but
I’m open to other suggestions for England’s best sport.
doing too badly in Wimbledon I suppose. If only we could have a national team
for egg and spoon or sack races, we’d be well ahead. Maybe we’re best at nettle
eating marathons or croquet. What do you think?
Dorchester we’ve got plenty of sports teams including football, rugby,
athletics, cricket, tennis, gymnastics and many more. We do have a
rather large football stadium but it doesn’t necessarily mean that Dorchester people are
best at football, although it may mean that we are best known for it locally.
think we tend to breed rather large young men in Dorchester compared to the
rest of the country. You only need to go along to a local under 15s rugby game
for your proof. Maybe then, rugby is Dorchester’s sporting strength. Also don't forget we have some pretty good womens teams. What do you think?
