Yeah Yeah I know we kicked your ass and tossed your tea overboard in the 1770's but we love sports, nothing ever happens in the summer as far as sports goes in America, we are a "former" british colony after all and we have more in common with Eng;and that the rest of the America's.
Sidenote*The USA dominates the actual Olympic Games could you imagine how many medals we would win in the CG?
It would be an American Revolution.....

I don't think the Commonwealth was formed before the USA got their independence
...OK, just checked. Australia and a few other nations broke from the British Empire years before the Commonwealth was formed (1949). Maybe the USA was excluded because they had been independent of Britain for over 150 years, and during that time, claimed Spanish (West Coast), French (Midwest) and Russian (Alaska) territory. Those areas just don't identify themselves with any British-ness (apart from the language).
But then again, how Cameroon, Mozambique and Rwanda joined the Commonwealth, I'll never know. (And the only reason why the Commonwealth Games still exist today, is so that England, Scotland, Wales (and Northern Ireland?) can compete separately and not as "Great Britain")Last edited by shawn_o1; 21-07-2014 at 09:38.
