    Screw Russia and their hooligan culture.

    Also, it's FOOTBALL - not soccer. Calling it soccer is like ordering a salad over steak: Women won't be judged for doing it, but woe be unto the men who do the same.

    I don't really understand why american football is called football anyways. The parts where the ball is actually touched by the foot is but a small part of its game. Whereas with normal football (soccer to americans) is actually a game played by ramming around the ball by foot. Makes sense to call it football. :P

    Anyways, I'll just make the distinction by calling one sport football and the other american football. If I don't add the american part before football, I will be talking about this sport. :P

    American football was originally a mostly-kicking sort of game, similar to rugby, that evolved drastically to its current "hand-egg" form. Regarding "soccer," the term was invented by the British as an affectionate nickname for association football, analogous to "rugger" for Rugby football. Several English-speaking countries, other than the UK, call it "soccer." Football also means different things in those countries:

    Ireland: Gaelic football
    US: American football
    Canada: American and Canadian football
    Australia: Australian Rules football, rugby league
    New Zealand: Rugby union
    South Africa: Either association football (soccer's more common) or rugby

    All "football" really means in English is a game that involves kicking a ball at some point, derived from the same historical source, played under different codes of rules.

    I'm rooting for Denmark as well, but I have a feeling they're going to lose against Portugal. :}
