Out of topic (*guilty*) but i couldn't resist to flame the "american way of thinking", and hope that it doesn't infiltrate EU.

Europeans have a a sport where players use their feet to kick a round ball, that is why it is called football.

Americans have a sport where they are using their hands to pass and hold a not-round but melon-like ball. They call that "football" (!!!!!!) and the european sport "soccer" (??!!?!??).

There is something totally wrong there.

You are right, this is totally wrong :D

For information about the original game of football check this:

Back in the renaissance they were using their hands - what we are doing now in Europe is the civilized variety :D
