First of all, what is snooker?

No, it’s not the character from “Jersey Shore.” Rather, it’s a billiards spin-off that originated in Etawah, India in the late 1800s. And what about draughts? Well, it’s the British version of checkers, obviously. And bridge, apparently, isn’t some competition played by water-spanning, man-made structures, but actually is a card game. Who knew?

Now, it’s really not surprising that golf is considered the most boring sport in the world, as, whether you agree or not, the sport can’t seem to shake the notion that it’s tedious and unwatchable.

And as for American football, the NFL can’t be happy that people from Great Britain think pigskin is more boring than hurling, curling and “netball.”
