Nothing at all. More fall-out to follow, I'm sure ...

Baseball? Is that where seven boys wearing silly costumes watch two of their friends play catch while another guy swings a stick to distract them?
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

I knew that it was just an illusion that Germany won the cup.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

At least the rest of the world calls it by its proper name, Lobo! American football should really be re-named handball.

The British invented the word soccer, and they did it before they began calling. Soccer "football." That's good enough for me.

Lobo, I did not know that. However, the name "football" originated in the 13th century. And although it seems the term "soccer" may have been briefly popular in the late 19th century, today in England and the rest of the world the game as is known as "football."

Czech: fotbal

Actually, "football" seems like a name more appropriate to soccer than our American game. American football, except for kickoffs, field goals and extra points, has little to do with the feet. HitRunPassRushBall would be more accurate. Smile

I prefer the name "War Ball". I like to watch it, but I feel guilty about it.

In heaven they watch baseball. No lie. Jesus CAN hit a curve ball.

Soccer? Meh.

On topic: wasn't it here at the Café that someone posted a link to some film glamorizing Seth and FIFA?

American football is more like Rugby, which was invented at that posh school. Football is a communist game for the workers and Rugby is posh like.
