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.

I confirm that Football is only called Soccer in the U.S. and Canada. The orginal term, and the one to use when addressing an international audience (such as the readers of this site) is Football.

As such, the one living in a "fantasy world" is you, i.e. an americanocentric worldview.
