Soccer or Football? What's Your Play? - Aloha TQT Sillies

I was watching football (soccer) tonight between Jamaica and Mexico. It was a pretty good came. Seems Jamaica embarrassed the Mexican team with how well they played, as they weren't expected to be able to hold their own in such a big game. Haha. Don't you just love the underdogs? :D

The game was tied 0-0.
I have to say I was hoping for a score, but I am glad we got to be there and they played so well!

Sports can be a beautiful thing.

And despite all these years I've lived here in America, I only think of football (futbol) as it is in our country. I can't get connected to calling it soccer.

I really wish more sports were popular on the American front. Seems all the media care to share about is American handball (football). Anyway I'm glad a regular station was showing this competition instead of it being on specialize cable stations.

1. Do watch football (soccer)?
2. Did you play any sports in school?
  

And we are doing the Sillies of course :)

Humor is infectious. The sound of roaring laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle, or sneeze. When laughter is shared, it binds people together and increases happiness and intimacy. Laughter also triggers healthy physical changes in the body. Humor and laughter strengthen your immune system, boost your energy, diminish pain, and protect you from the damaging effects of stress. Best of all, this priceless medicine is fun, free, and easy to use

  3. A score of 0-0, must have been exciting! I can see the challenge on both sides. I watched a hockey game once that was 0-0.
    I used to watch soccer frequently, but not for a long time. I watched the super bowl this past weekend, which is a very unusual activity for me. I felt so guilty all week now because I took time out to just eat and veg...I am kind of paying for it now too. smiles.
    I like soccer more than football, but I have a feeling this is changing...lol.

  10. I watch American football, it's probably my favorite sport to watch. However, while I don't religiously watch soccer, I do watch it during the Olympics and the World Cup (I ever attended World Cup '98 in Paris when I was a kid)

  13. I didn't play (I was never good at sports) but I do like to watch some sports (live or on tv). My husband is a fanatic and watches any and every sport...if there's not one on, it's not unknown for him to watch bowling or golf, lol. He IS good at sports...won a scholarship in fact, for baseball when he was back in high school. :)

  14. I am a soccer fan, and I love watching competitions in all levels. All of my children played soccer so the love for this game has a very intense hold on me.

    As a physically disabled, I can't participate in any school activities. Have a great weekend!

  16. I watch American football, but not so much soccer. I am not athletically inclined, so pretty much anything that requires coordination, beyond running, is a no-go for me!

  17. I watch futbol and only watch American football if it's the Superbowl. My kids play futbol on a travel team so I'm kinda partial to it. ;)

    When I was a kid I rode horses, did gymnastics and played softball.

    Happy Sharefest!!
