A sport played by 22 men or women on a large grass field running around kicking a round ball. Also called "soccer" by Americans (to differentiate from American football), Canadians (to differentiate from Canadian football), Australians (to differentiate from Australian Rules football), and some Irish (to differentiate from Gaelic football). Therefore, despite what most every arrogant, narrow-minded Eurosnob or Britsnob thinks, The US is not the only nation which calls football "soccer," and no country calls it "soccer" due to ignorance, simply a different evolution of terms.
Every nation on Earth plays football, some better than others. The most popular club football leagues are found in Europe, where you can enjoy hundreds of pussy Europeans flopping and flailing and crying on the ground, only to get up ten seconds later, completely unharmed and unfazed, after they've made sure they have gotten the call from the ref.
Despite all the bickering about terminology, pussy players, and European retardation, football is a simple, fun game that can be enjoyed by everyone.
European football (especially Italian) in a nutshell:
-Player 1 takes the ball downfield after taking possession from Opponent 1
-Opponent 2 slightly brushes the leg of Player 1
-Player 1 yells, clutches face, falls to ground, writhes in agony, still clutching face, apparently unaware that their leg was touched and not their face
-Referee blows whistle, cards Opponent 2, awards free kick to Player 1
-Player 1 immediately gets up and acts like nothing has happened
