Football

in Wales is what sport in the US? Is it what we call soccer? Is it rugby, but wouldn't it be called rugby, then? At any rate, checking Wales online, it seems they are delirious at how well Wales is doing in Euro 2016, which I'm not sure what that is exactly, either. Ignorant Jean is ignorant.

Yeah, we call soccer football, and by any name, I still hate it.

Give me the American version of football - pads, and helmets, and great Tight Ends - any day! Go Bears! (Yes, I know my team are pretty crap these days, but I live in hope of them returning to the glory days of yore. Preferably while I'm still alive to see it.)

I much prefer Australian Football, which we used to be able to watch around 3am on some cable channel we had at the time. Those guys are tough! American football players are generally muscle bound, and tend to get carried off the field if they get a hangnail or something. No offense, Bears. Also, Patriots, please. I live just a few miles from what used to be Foxboro Stadium (I hate corporate take over of everything, even names) and once saw OJ Simpson play, which was a big deal a the time, but now....

Not all American footballers are wimps, I've seen some real toughies play. Soccer players though - they're the real wimps. The tiniest injury has them in tears on the ground. Rain stops play! I've seen American football players play on through torrential wind and rain, snow, ice, even fog - that was a great game between the Bears and Green Bay, they couldn't see each other's end zone or half the players, but they kept going right to the end! Awesome!
