While I personally can never fully fall in love with something that forbids me from using my hands, soccer/ football is obviously very popular all over the world. And there aren't many countries more football crazy than England. But when you leave your home country, you do the best with what you have. Mondale does an excellent job comparing his love of football with an outsider's view of American sport (particularly baseball). Read it here.
After Mondale sent this out to a number of people, it led to a very serious discussion between Mondale, Apes, and Weasel (there's a joke in there somewhere, I swear) about what football club Apes should pledge his allegiance to. Apparently even Mondale's dad "The Silver Fox" has been enlisted in this very important matter. Maybe as a result of this post, the Listmaker readership at large will finally become privy to these secret discussions. We have a right to know.
