What Do You Love Most About the USA and UK?

 What Do You Love Most About the USA and UK?

We all have different stories to tell regarding where we were born and grew up, and how we fell in love with either the Premier League or one Premier League club in particular. But I believe that despite the banter, there are many readers to this site who respect both the British and American cultures. After all, we have a lot in common.

So I thought it’d be interesting to have each of you share what you love about the United States and the United Kingdom. The answers don’t all have to pertain to soccer, but should focus on the British and American cultures.

Here’s my list of the things I love about the UK and USA. Feel free to share your list in the comments section below.

Things I love about the US:

People have more of a positive outlook on life,
BBQ food,
Lower prices on almost everything,
Open highways with less traffic congestion,
24/7 soccer TV networks such as Fox Soccer Channel, Fox Soccer Plus and GolTV,
Level of attentive service in most restaurants,
The greater percentage of the population who have a college education,
HBO on Sunday night,
Ability to start a new business is easier,
American patriotism.

Things I love about the UK:

Football grounds with stadiums stuck in the past such as Goodison Park and Craven Cottage,
Fish ‘n chips,
Swansea City Football Club,
Nature walks to and from castles,
National Trust,
Public transportation,
Healthcare system,
Home-made Sunday roast dinner,
Quality programming on BBC television,
The number of vacation days.
