hey look, another genius pointing out that football is different in the US.
how many have been? 3242? 3243?
I actually have done it myself in this same thread 4-5 times.
It's always fun to get a 'rise' out of you diehard soccer fans.

On a more or less unrelated topic, I had good fun teaching some idiots on twitter about word origins, when they had a go at me for using the word soccer (can I not use what words I want?)... As I pointed out, it's an English word short for Association Football that is in the same vein as Ruggers, popularised by the captain of the England football team in the 1890s
just an extremely posh way of saying football! Very Oxford.
