Subject: Federer vs. Nadal and Cardinals vs. Steelers: similarities
Today there's gonna be 2 big worldwide sport events: the Oz Open final
and the Superbowl.
I think you can find some similarities in the match-ups:
1) Just like Federer, the Cardinals will put all their chances of
winning in the offensive game. OTOH the Steelers main weapon is the
defense, exactly like Nadal.
2) The Steelers are the hands down favorites judging from the H2H
resume, but the Cardinals have been more impressive in their way to
the final. The same can be said for Rafa and Rog.

And one of the kickers for one of the teams is an Australian, but neither
of the tennis players is <sob >.
The Superbowl will be on pay TV, and I'm sure some Australians will watch
it. Who knows why?

Good post, but I was surprised to hear you consider American football a
worldwide sports event!

A worldwide spectator sport.
Will be broadcast in Germany by ARD, the main public TV station!
I will watch it, wearing my old Steelers cap from the 80ies.
If it is a yawner I'll switch to old Steffi DVDs of course ...

Exactly what I meant. Also here in Italy it will be live on RaiDue,
the second channel of the main public TV.
OTOH the Oz Open was not available for free to the wide public.
In terms of worldwide popularity and availability surely the NFL
stands in front of many other sports that are played at competitive
level in a much higher number of countries.

Actually, it's not.
