Most of America grew up watching American NFL "football". The kind where huge men try to dismember one another.

 

No offense, but for me, watching European "football" is like:

Let me tell you that my region represents 90% of national rugby because it's the only region in italy where rugby is so popular. And rugby is a sport for true men, more than American football I believe. However if you tried to play European football, you would soon discover that it's not as light as you would imagine. When you get some kicks on the bones of your legs, I'm quite sure you instantly get to know how real soccer is........LOL 

 

I played an amateur soccer tournament match when I was around 20. In that tournament two guys ended up with a broken leg and a broken arm......and they were both tall and well structered.....so think about it

I would like to be in Qatar right now because here in the ''sunny'' pre-alpine region where I am, we're already freezing. 1 °C at eight o'clock a.m. and white roofs because of ice. The usual wetness makes you perceive it a lot colder. Yesterday evening I went to watch a match of my tennis club's tournament. Heating system wasn't working and all of us watching were freezing, but the two players even more given the light tennis outfit they wore. It will be a long cold winter probably, but Ukraine is in our hearts and even if there are shortages of gas, it won't matter...............no problem.
