Humor Sometimes, while browsing the net for news, I come accross things I just cannot not post. "Some enterprising Austrian Über-geeks [have created] a Telnet stream with, believe it or not, live ASCII footage of matches being played [at the World Cup Football]. Simply fire up a command prompt and type 'telnet 2006' and you'll find a live 'video' stream from 10 minutes before kick-off (or should that be boot-up?)." I also look forward to the Wimbledon version that resembles Pong.

Going by popularity alone
In the US: yes. In the rest of the world: no.

The "rugby ripoff" football is close to unknown outside US (except from american movies). "Soccer" football is whats most popular in the rest of the world.
