I'm sorry to hear that... I guess. What game is this?

Yes it was FOOTBALL, not SOCCER but FOOTBALL. Sooooo close but alas Gerrard seemed to think it would be a good idea to pass the ball back to the goalie with 12 SECONDS TO GO!

meh, just meh  :'(

Soccer *is* football. "American football" is "our" game with the touchdowns and whatnot.

You will notice that I did say football first...then put soccer in parenthesis...just doing it for the benefit of those who had no clue...but don't worry, I KNOW the difference between Britian's football and America's football  :P

No, because it has reached a much larger international scale than Cricket AND because I know how to play it. :D  (even if I'm only good at faking an injury when someone's breeze touches me :D)

Hahaha Cricket, thats a good one James! And Polo? Wtf is that even played anywhere any more? (apart from the royal family of course)

I dunno, they played it in the movie "Pretty Woman" (a movie to which I can relate oh so much :D).

If Polo's the game that you use mallets to hit the ball thru the metallic hoops in the ground, I've played it. I'm not any good at it, but I've played it.

Sorta wrong/sorta right. :D
Lacrosse is actually Canada's Official National Sport.
Hockey was based off Lacrosse, actually.
Key differences from hockey:
1) Not on ice, but on a field or in a non-iced rink with fake turf.
2) Instead of having sticks to pass a puck around, they have sticks with a little net on the end to catch and pass a ball with.
3) The gameplay and rules are also different.

As far as I know, there's nothing like polo.  And thank goodness for that! :D

Yeah, I can't stand American Football, it's so "let's all kill each other, derrrr.... footy....."  sorta game. It's even worse than Rugby League!

And when you say Hockey, do you mean Field Hockey Hockey or Ice Hockey Hockey?

A friend went over to the US to work in a summer camp, she went over telling the organisers she doesn't play any sports that they know... then when she was there she mentioned she played Hockey and they all went "WELL! Why didn't you say so!" and she was about to be thrown into an ICE Hockey game! LOL!
Field hockey is big in Australia, and we have the worlds best teams male and female.   ;D

Heh. I don't see the appeal in American footy either. I love the AFL (GO THE LIONS !!! ) but I'm not so big on rugby. However, American football seems so "sissy" in comparison (am I gonna get beat up by angry American footballs fans? :-[). I mean, if you're going to beat people up in a state-sponsered testosterone-driven brawl, do it right! ;P

Field hockey is also excellent - expecially since the Aussies are winning ;B
