Go Vikings!

Portland State vs. Idaho State

What is football? What is soccer? I don't know why only Americans in the world have different football, I mean they call football soccer and they have their own football. ;)

Great picture. Let's not forget that Canadians and Australians have their own versions of football too.

I have always thought soccer was much more interesting to watch than American football. But this is definitely a cultural experience for you. I hope you had fun.

Canadian football is the same sport also.

@Uselaine - you need to watch American football with beer and freinds for it to be interesting

In australia there are 4 codes, all called football (and a 5th if you count American football, which is also played here by a few people).

There's Australian Rules footy; soccer, Rugby and Rugby League. it fdepends where you live and which you follow the one you call 'football', but in general, they all are!

The roundball game is a minority game in terms of followers, but lots of kids play it.

This is my kind of football. You ahve chosen a very exciting time to live in America.

Not just Americans. What we call football is Rugby League. What you call football we call soccer.

Would really be interested in your impressions of election day.

Ha ha, abid! With beer and friends, football and soccer are one and the same to me. Fun.
