Seriously, who watches soccer any more? Its just a dead sport... Oh wait, thats just in America. Ok, so its not dead but besides this big game, probably 1/20th the views that American Football receives.

Heh, my hubby and I were talking about that last night.

I told him that only Americans find football exciting and everyone else enjoys soccer.

Well, they have played some NFL games in London and people do go to those so it is spreading. Just ever so slowly.

Another misconception is that Americans were the first ones to call the game "soccer." It was an English shortening of "association football," the nickname of which became popular in the states. [1]

Yea, I thought it was funny how American football doesn't even use a spherical ball... more like a lemon or lime shape with points at the end. =P

So yeah, certainly was a busy weekend for me. Not only did I get to rent a 2010 Camaro for a day, my son got a cut on the bridge of his nose. My sister-in-law and her wife took him to Chuck-e-Cheese and said he was coming down a slide but then took off running, tripped, and hit the corner of a game. It cause a small gash and bled pretty bad they said. They brought him home and we ended up taking him to the urgent care. They put derma-bond on it instead of stitches, must easier and less scaring. He scream a bit when they were putting the skin back together, but since then he's been fine... except for the throwing up part. Most likely he swallowed a good bit of blood so he's spit up the past 2 days. Not fun.

Anywho, thought I'd share

I was busy this weekend with work and errands.

This week might be more of the same, especially with E3 going on. I'm going to be doing a lot of writing.
