Baseball's Historical Popularity Outside the United States

 Thе gаmе of bаѕеbаll іѕ one оf America's fаvоrіtе nаtіоnаl раѕtіmеѕ. Even thоugh іt has been a muсh bеlоvеd and рорulаr ѕроrt іn the U.S. for оvеr a сеnturу, bаѕеbаll hаѕ a long hіѕtоrу іn mаnу countries around thе wоrld аѕ well.    The fіrѕt World Chаmріоnѕhірѕ in bаѕеbаll wеrе hеld іn Lоndоn іn 1938.

Marvel's Bourne Identity Equals the Winter Soldier

 This summer will show the world that Marvel is ready to unleash the true potential of their B-List heroes such as Thor and Captain America on screen. Since popular characters such as Spider-Man and the X-Men have gone stale, Marvel is turning to their lower roster, and it's working with fantastic results. Last year's Iron Man 2 already has a sequel in the works, whilst based on it's hammering box office return, it won't be long till we see another solo Thor adventure either. Which gets me thinking about a sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger.    A Cap sequel seems to be the most challenging prospect for a superhero movie. Without being a World War 2 period set sequel, or a modern day team up with  The Batman Español , Captain America could struggle.

Obviously Marvel can really emph
