Out of the Blue

Well it's officially winter here in the northern hemisphere, as the solstice hit sometime in the wee hours of last night. Things have been pretty mild around here following our freak autumn blizzard a couple of months back, but I'm not very optimistic that my snow shovel will be gathering much dust, though I'll be happily proven wrong.

Football is better than soccer and I defy anyone to dispute this with a straight face. Clearly, football is a much better name for that game which involves your foot and a ball.

(Really shouldn't reply to an opinion post like this but you caught me at a weak moment!) Not trying to belittle American Football since I respect that it's huge and beloved... but wouldn't it have spread over the planet if it were "clearly" better than soccer?

No, because with soccer all you need is a ball and that's it. Football is expensive and it's more of a metaphor for the American - and to some extent, Canadian - way of life. Plus, with soccer so ingrained in most of the globe's conciousness it's why they don't go in for much else - wheras we go in for football, hockey, baseball, basketball. If soccer floats your boat then rock effin' on. For me and most Canucks and Yanks I know it's more boring than watching paint dry.

International soccer matches can be boring, but league matches and especially Champions League games are often really great. Honestly, do yourself a favor and check one out.

And hey, re. the short shorts thing - the Dallas Cowboys play in SILVER SPANDEX PANTYHOSE.
