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.

Ummm no, the whole world doesn't call it football, and even if they did it wouldn't make it right. A few extremely arrogant asshats on this forum decided to start this whole mess. I just corrected it. period.

Most of the world does call "soccer" football. It's not about being arrogant. And it might make it "wrong" in your eyes. But that's a fact. It's not however something worth lowering yourself down to name calling for.

But if it makes you happy, we'll call it "soccer" and we'll call American Football "gridiron". How's that?
