I'm starting a movement to have soccer officially recognized in North America as football, and the N. American brand of "football" (i.e. the NFL) to change its name to something more fitting. Helmetball? Tackleball? Whatever, just as long as it doesn't infringe on a sport that is known by the vast majority of the free world.

Anyone remember the joy of seeing him bash the Undertaker's motorcycle with his sledgemhammer and doing no damage and being all like, "Mjolnir will not break thine cycle? I say thee NAY!" and dumping it off the stage. - Enojado Viento says the funniest thing I've ever read on Wienerville.
I've used the terms soccer/football interchangably all my life. I noticed on my vacation last week that both terms were used in Ireland as well. Plus the reference to "American football" was used more than once.

There is some kid on I think San Diego State (or for a college out in CA) who is playing with a prostethic leg right now, he is a 5th year who lost the leg in 2000 when some guy caved his leg in. and plays on special teams. I can't remember his name.
