in england; whom is most famous?
i misread this thread to say John Cena. It would have been a better title.
a wasted oppurtunity.
John Cena vs Al Gore?
but al gore cant STFU.
Dennis Rodman vs Austin, Texas
"Stone Cold" Steve Austin is more famous and sexed then both of those.
You wouldn't think it, but, the silent majority of people in this country are disinterested in football and are more likely to have heard of Serena Williams.
not for those reasons, but because shes probably the most famous woman in her sport currently playing and therefore likely to be in the news more significantly, whereas Joe Cole isnt.
frank lampard? he has more press coverage
I know a fair few who are forever banging on about it, but, for each of them there are plenty more who couldn't care less.
of the country in general though.
Tennis would have broader appeal nationwide and as has already been stated she is a major force in tennis, Joe Cole doesn't come close in terms of his fame/influence/success within football and endorsements outside of it.
...it's only viewed as middle class in this country because the state sector has almost totally opted out of sports full stop having already sold off much of the playing fields and scared themselves witless over fears of health and safety induced legal action.
Agreed about Henman though, utter time waster.
...and yet we're infinitely more successful at that than we are at football.
because would say tennis appeals to a more broad demographic.
i dont give a shit about tennis, but i would say the majority of people who arent under a rock would know the two best tennis players over the past few years of each sex, federer and williams.
more people care about football, but only those who really do will know cole, whereas more people would know serena.
I would disagree it appeals to a broader demographic though.
a youtube link to a fight where williams beat the shit out of cole :(
I'd say Williams, but also reckon that most people wouldn't be able to tell who was who between Serena and Venus.
so true. after eighteen id be nearly dead
Serena, she's more recognisable.
People are always asking Joe Cole "WHO ARE YA? WHO ARE YA?" (lol)
And she'd win in a fight too, I bet.
is the guy who lived with henry rollins who got shot?right?and he went out with someone from babes in toyland.i know nothing about sport
thats william hill
roadie vs drum tech
