Yes I have and do own a hurley. some of us spent quite an amount of time living in the country you seem so hopelessly patriotic about.
Where are these similarities exactly?

Baseball and American football are on all the time around the world and nobody watches, what's your point? I think we have established that football (not gaelic or american) has a much bigger audience than your variety. And can you speak for everybody? To be honest I'm not suprised as the game did originate in Britiain and we all know how you feel about that place.

I did see that episode, and it was as much a parody on how Americans don't get football as it was making fun of the game itself. Did you see the episode where they go to a baseball game an leave after the national anthem?
And it's not a tie, it's a draw. Sheesh!
