You mean there are other sports in which balls are pitched and hit, and it involves running and scoring points? And, some of them are played by women?

You can keep your sissy rounders. If you're interested in bat/ball sports, watch a real one: women's fast pitch softball.

And, I gotta tell ya, any soccer fan can fuck right off with criticizing any other sport, not just baseball, for the resemblance to a girl's sport. If anybody plays like girls it's men's world soccer players. And, I love the game of soccer. I played it since I was 10 years old, into my 40s with recreational teams. It's a great game to play. But, since the 1980s, every fucking world cup competition, and you can add to that men's British premiere league soccer, have played like fucking sissies. That's why, although every four years the world cup gets me all going, all set to watch the best in the world play for all the marbles -- and every single time I'm stuck cringing at the absolute pussification of that beautiful game.

You know who DON'T play like girls? The women's world cup soccer players. To a person, the women play harder and less like pussies than the men. They play the fucking game instead diving and crying like toddlers every two fucking seconds. I absolutely love the women's world cup. It's fantastic, and I can't remember a time when they've dived, over-exaggerated a tackle to draw a penalty, etc. None of that shit.

So fuck off.

I think he may be referring to Association Football, the game of over-paid guttersnipes and fly-by-night spivs from investment banking looking for a handy sink hole from which to generate favourable tax deductions.

It's short for "Association Football," and the word was coined in England, numbnuts. Association football was distinct from rugby football, as both are forms of fucking football, as is American football, Canadian football, and Australian football.

Despite the inevitable diversion into references to rounders and the usual nonsense about how western Europeans think everyone should play the games they like.....don't try to like a sport from somewhere else, guys. That would be crazy.

The Cubbies tied up the series 1-1 by defeating the Indians 5-1 last night in a good game.

Sport and Victorian Values

During the mid-nineteenth century certain sporting activities were transformed from a collection of unruly pastimes into a series of structured and codified games via the English public schools. This transformation, it is argued, primarily took place through the work of Thomas Arnold, head teacher of Rugby School between 1828–41. Arnold’s appointment at Rugby came at a time when wider criticisms prevailed of unruliness and disorder in the public schools; evils which he resolved to remedy. Central to Arnold’s reforms were his religious beliefs and his desire to transform his young charges into ‘good Christian gentlemen’.

During the mid-nineteenth century Charles Kingsley and Thomas Hughes, a pupil of Arnold’s, became key figures in the relationship between sport and religion. Perhaps most notable in this respect was Hughes’s 1857 book Tom Brown’s Schooldays. The sense of high moral value and manly Christian endeavour embedded in the storyline formed the basis of what came to be known as ‘muscular Christianity’, a term encapsulating notions of spiritual, moral and physical purity.

Yes, definitely different and certainly great in its own way. Just like this plucky competitor.
