Anyways, the reasons I refer to real football as football and not that word .. what was it .. hrmpf .. "soccer", are:
1. It’s played with a normal spherically shaped ball and not a friggin ellipsoid.
2. The players use their feet to move the ball across the field, rather than using the "ball" as a lame excuse to have a massive group hug over.
Well I’m kidding here, I’m sure american football can be hot to watch, but I just never could get into it. I’ve watched a few superballs, but only to end up either bored or drunk. Prolly I just need to learn more about it, that’s all.

Sweet. Well, you’re welcome Javro, give the guy my best. When I was in Rome last year he once waved in my direction after a Lazio victory, so I’m sure he remembers me [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]
