    Well, I didn't watch it, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl #55 yesterday. Everyone is talking about it!

    Well, I do not really like football actually, I consider it a stupid game, I prefer soccer, the real football! I have been playing soccer for my entire life actually. The first time I went to a soccer game, it was back in 2007. I was in London with my dad, and he decided to take me to a football game, it was a Chelsea vs Manchester United game! Chelsea won on the Stamford Bridge, and since then, I am a Chelsea fan! I am trying to watch all of their games, however sometimes I just do not have the opportunity to do it, so I am watching the highlights on https://55goal.com/soccer-highlights as they are posting them really fast.

    To the last couple of 2021 posters: The real soccer is soccer. American football is a different sport entirely . What people call tennis now, used to be called lawn tennis. Futbol may be what you guys are thinking of. History is interesting.


    1880s
    Linguistically creative students at the University of Oxford in the 1880s distinguished between the sports of “rugger” (rugby football) and “assoccer” (association football). The latter term was further shortened to “soccer” (sometimes spelled “socker”), and the name quickly spread beyond the campus.
