My favorite things English are:

1. Their comedians. From the members of the legendary The Goon Show to the famous troupe from Monty Python's Flying Circus, English comedians have inspired many comedians around the world even to this day. NBC's Saturday Night Live was strongly influenced by a number of British comedy shows, for starters.

2. Association Football (soccer). The English Premier League is arguably the best "footie" professional league in the world, no contest.
