The core of this list is the 200 recognized sports with national or international federations.There is also a comprehensive list of team sports that are played around the world. If there is a sport not listed or incorrect, please make a comment below.As in Canada and Australia, sports leagues in the United States do not practice promotion and relegation, unlike many sports leagues in Europe.Sports are particularly associated with education in the United States, with most high schools and universities having organized sports.Major League Soccer is sometimes included in a "top five" of leagues of the country.All four enjoy wide-ranging domestic media coverage and are considered the preeminent leagues in their respective sports in the world, although only basketball, baseball, and ice hockey have substantial followings in other nations. That’s an opinion long held at CC dating back to the time we swapped an old Electra 225 motor into a Skylark wagon for summer fun, and then again when the Buick beat all comers in the now legendary CC shootout of all the GM corporate big-blocks.Sadly, the state of gearhead living has changed drastically over the last five years, and even here in So Cal, the Buick 455 engine donors just aren’t in the ‘yards or on the streets like they used to be.
Speaking of TA, we’ve got to thank Mike Tomaszewski over there, as well as local Buick fan (and owner of a 9-second, naturally aspirated GS455) Bruce Kent, both of whom loaned us parts and expertise.
