Because soccer is the word of the day and everyone is all into the World Cup that’s going on right now I’m going to show you a funny video I ran across where an American football coach starts coaching an English club-soccer team.
While I’m on this let’s talk. Soccer and football. I was trying to describe this video to someone and they just weren’t getting it even though I tried to clarify by saying “American football” and “soccer.” They were lost in the semantics. So I move that from now on we in the USA, in fact, not even just the USA, all North American countries (sorry Mexico) agree that if we say “football” we agree that we’re talking about full-on, helmet and pads, American tackle football. If we say “soccer” we are talking about soccer.
The rest of the continents can keep calling both of the sports football so long as they preface ours. So I’ll let them get away with rewriting this article’s title as “What Happens When an American Football Coach Starts Coaching Football?” Yes it may sound a bit confusing for people who are drifting in and out of the conversation but I promise, once we all adjust it will be better.
Hit the jump for the video.
Thanks to Kerry who thinks there should be more tackling and less flopping in soccer. Get up and play you pansies!
