football
Football: It has a team of 11 players (mainly men) who kick a ball about with their feet - at least, that's what I've been told.

Americans do this differently, their football is thrown about by hand.

A question I've always wanted to ask - why do American footballers use such heavy mascara?- it runs right below their eyes - has it anything to do with some sort of animal charity, supporting raccoons or somesuch?

what? some don't care about football?!?!

actually, I originally had an option for non-watchers -- and for some reason, it didn't show up! i guess it means that not watching ISN'T an option!
