You gotta help me out here. I'm a footie newbie and I've been trying to figure out what in the world FIFA stands for. I haven't been able to find it easily so this is my last resort. The best I've been able to come up with is Federation International of Footbal Associations.
Yup, that's it so translated it's The International Federation of Football Associations (obviously). Hopefully they resist the temptation to rename it The International Entertainment of Football Associations. .

Assuming Mizzou DT Michael Sam does get drafted this May (I've seen 3rd-round projections) or signed as a free agent, the NFL is about to have its first openly gay player. He was the SEC's Defensive Player of the Year in 2013. More in Peter King's MMQB.
