a sport combining skill,muscle,brains and strategy, where a team works together to get the ball up the field to the end zone or to prevent it. once the team gets to the goal it becomes a touchdown.it involves alot of running and is very hard to master.there are people in the game called officials they call the game.

America: A sport that is obsessed over by almost everyone, even though the game is boring to watch due to constant pauses in the game. Is highly physical resulting in many health problems later in life. Is talked 99.9% of the time on Sports Center, even when it is the offseason.

The rest of the World: A sport that is obsessed over by almost everyone. Reffered to as "soccer" in America, is actually pretty exciting to watch, but can get frustrating as injuries are faked almost every 25 seconds
America: Person 1 "Hey did you see that segment on sportscenter about
football"

Person 2 "Which one?"

The rest of the World: Person 1 "OMG that was an amazing goal!.....OMG that
guy is being taking off on a stretcher, did you see what happened?"

Person 2 " He got bumped into"

A useless sport in which men run around on a large field in tight pants, tackling each other over a silly little ball.
The man tried to tackle the other man who had the ball, but he didn't want to get his tight pants dirty.
Guy 1: What the hell are they doing?
Guy 2: They must be playing football.

an excuse for guys to check eachother out, some say the game is fun to play, but this is just a rationalization for the expressing of homoerotic emotions, through the comforting medium of sport. Appraisal of other males can be conducted during the game and also after in the men's locker which is sporty and fun and chemically involving as opposed to in the men's bathroom which can be psychologically invasive and shameful as society has conditioned us to view our bodily functions as uncultured and unspeakable. Homoeroticism in men is as natural as it is in women. A correlary for football in women is competitive trampolining.
Football is a useless unwatchable abomination of a sport as is trampolining for women, but I let my husband watch it because it helps him to establish wholesome connections with other men through sport who are also ashamed of their secret attraction to other men.

The most fun game EVER. You can play tackle, flag, and many more. It's the most fun playing with a bunch of people that are way strong!
Body builder: "Hey man, you wanna go play some football???!!!"

Tiny man: "Naw man, you'd CRUSH me!"

Body builder: "That's the point!!"

The greatest sport ever made. And not to be confused with soccer. football as in the nfl. the most exciting sport ever to be made. That envolves 11 men on offense and 11 men on defense. all playes wear equiment like helments and shoulder pads to protect them from enjury due to the rough conctact in the sport. they are played ib 4 down intervals. the only way to keep going is to gain 10 yards befor your 4 downs are up. the deffense tries to stop this from happening. the ball can ether be handed off to a running back or thrown the a reciever by a quater back. the quater back is protected by lineman. the lineman protect from deffesive lineman and linebackers. the recievers are covered by cornerbacks, safties, and linebacker who also can ruse the quater. line backers also watch for the running back.
I was watching a NFL football game today. the Chicago Bears lost to the Pittsburg steelers 35 to 0.
