    Three errors in that phrase:

    -Football matches doesnt last 2 hours
    -In Football you can score
    -The World insists that America doesnt get it

    Lol. Big difference between them is, though, that twilight sucks hard, while football `just` sucks.

    "-Football matches doesnt last 2 hours"
    Typical match is 90 minutes plus injuries and the nearly inevitable overtime... so yeah- 2 hours.

    "-In Football you can score"
    Having the ability to score and actually scoring are different things. Watching a "football" match is like getting a lapdance from a naked stripper after you`ve popped half a bottle of viagra- ((JUST LET IT HAPPEN ALREADY!!)) Similar to the entire moral of the Twilight movies which is thematically about abstinence.

    "-The World insists that America doesnt get it"
    We get it- we just have other sports that we`re good at, so why should we give a poo about something that we`re only NOW becoming competitive at? No reason at all- Just like you probably down care about beer pong, karaoke or competitive orgies because you`re not any good at them, American University students do care because they are good at those things.

    actually overtime is only required in finals matches where there must be one winner. only if its a draw at the end of 90 min. but normal league games dont need it.so yeah not 2 hours.

    only required when score is a draw at end of 90 min. which doesnt always happen.

    get behind the progression, football is the best loved sport in the world, america is in the world.

    you do the math(s)

    Football matches are low scoring because it actually takes skill to score, they`re also 90 minutes long. If they go into extra time the match will last 2 hours, but the only games that have extra time are ones that have to be decided on the night, so if it goes to extra time then there HAS to be at least one score. So no matter how you look at it, this post makes no sense. Anyway, I haven`t seen Twilight but don`t the wolf boy and the "vampire" both get a wee slice of the depressing bird at some stage?

    "Football matches are BORING because it actually takes FOREVER to score, they`re also WAY TOO long. If they go into extra time JUST KILL YOURSELF NOW, but the only games that have extra time are ones THAT HAVE DRAWN OUT TOO LONG, so if it goes to extra time GET DRUNK AS HELL."

    ftfy

    America is too busy dominating the world economically and militarily to bother with the "highly skilled" game of SOCCER. ARROGANT AMERICANS FTW!!!!!!

    but they do score, dont they? bella has the edwards kid right? although, this is dumb because: 1) she needed to be human because vampires cannot give birth, but 2) edward can get her pregnant because male vampires can still procreate. so why can male vampires create life but female vampires cannot, eh twilight fans?

    Why are the Dutch to blame? The English (from GB) call it football, as the Dutch call it "voetbal" which is, indeed, a direct translation.
