Basketball? thats a version of netball mate( witch is played by girls over here also)...Lacrosse?? i will give you that..i think the native Americans thought that one up...
Badminton??? was invented by the Greeks and played in India..our soldiers brought it over in the 1860s and it was reinvented as the game we know today..

Lacrosse though you can have that one

LOL OK, you can take the sports.

EDIT: After some research, both you and I stand corrected. Netball was derived from Basketball. Netball started in the US as "Womens Basketball" in 1895.

AMEN It's my favorite season! Pro, college, high school pee wee I love it all! For the past few years one or more of my kids were involved in something that required my presence at the high school games every Friday night. This year I am going anyway. Too much fun! I love it when you throat is so raw from hollering (don't sit in front of me) that you can't talk for days! (my kids do too)
