Miles / United Statesflaf


 

My name is Miles Pennington and I'm from the United States and this is a video for elllo.org. My question is: are there any regional rivalries in your country?

And the answer in America is definitely yes. There is an East-West rivalry. The West Coast which includes California has a lot of popular culture because of the movie industry and the music industry, and the East Coast on the other hand has a lot of classical culture like theater and classical music. And another thing is the sports rivalries. Of course there's East Coast - West Coast sports rivalries, especially in things like football and basketball actually is divided between the western league and the eastern league and they play against each other in the finals, but West Coast teams are seen as more showman and they play faster paced, more exciting games and the East is seen ... their teams play more defensive games, and a lot of times the rivalries end up in championship games and the two styles are apparent.
