Soccer (a.k.a Football, The Beautiful Game) is a sport that has been played in one form or another throughout the world for at least 2000 years. No one has the right to claim it as a sport they invented, neither the British, French, Chinese nor any others. This sport has evolved over the centuries and has adopted characteristics from around the world. The English in the 1800's were the first to create a Football Association, regulating the sport and creating the basis of the "Laws" we know today, they did not invent the sport, the Brit's formalized it. Before anyone comments further on who invented the sport and it's origins please do you research. Start at the official FIFA website, they have a breif history of the sport on their website.
P.S: Soccer is a word invented in England, it is a bastardization on the word "Association Football" to distinguish between Rugby Football (a.k.a Rugger) and Association Football (a.k.a Soccer) on University campus in the 1800's where both sports were played.
To all my English/UK friends ... stop complaining, you invented the word we use today. :-)
Yank: You play Soccer?
Brit: What's Soccer, mate?
Yank: You know it as Football.
Brit: Why do you Yanks call it Soccer.
Yank: I don't know, why did you Brit's invent the word?

A global sport where nothing much happens on the field. The fans are an absolute riot, though.
Given the choice between watching soccer and a colonoscopy, Trevor wisely chose the latter.

Worlds most overrated sport. It's not just america that calls it soccer anyway. In Ireland, we call Gaelic Football, football.
Give me B-ball any day. At least that never ends in a 0-0 draw.
An exciting result for the soccer match.
1-0

Obscure team sport played only in a few isolated regions of the world. Details are sketchy but the game is believed to involve kicking.
Anthropologists from several universities around the United States have embarked on an expedition to learn more about this "soccer" pastime.

The act of looking like a complete nancy, often times morons who partake in this "sport" become homosexual.

This world is fucked up because of all the Soccer players in it.

I’ve played soccer. And it has to be the most idiotic game ever. There is no contact whatsoever, and there are so many players on the field at one time that it is impossible to get a shot off.
Wow, how can Europe like this game?
