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 ascii-wm.net 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.

"Even the euros know what real football is; NFL Europe ain't skinny guys in shorts tearing off their shirts"

lol, who would want to watch "NFL Europe" when you can go and watch a *REAL* rugby match, you know what i mean, rugby!, the one where they don't wear sissy helmets and paddings, and actually run on real grass...
As for football (the real one) the beauty of it is that anyone can play it, all that is required is skill. It doesn't matter if you are skinny, tall, short, black, white or blue, it's a game of skill, inspiration and team play.

"Wow, it must be nice to be able to ignore all facts and continue to live in you guys' little fantasy world. I have nothing personal against soccer, but call it what it is, and it isn't football."

Well at least it has a BALL and is played using the FEET.
