    It should be banned and cursed by Pope Francisco until people are still suffering from thirst in Africa.

    Each visitor of Premier League should pay for a sandwich-a-day for hungry people in Africa.

    Who could sit in their armchairs yesterday and watch I round of Premier Soccer League and watch underground sprinklers elevating immediately after I half was over and fat spectators chewing greasy pies like it was their last wish in front of firing squad.

    Boooooooooh!

    There are no fat people in Europe, only in the US.

    I'd go with throw ball or run ball or goal ball, but yes, soccer deserves the word "football" more so than American football due to the far greater role of the feet in game play.

    Whatever it's called, though, the NFL is just 4 weeks away, baby! Can't wait!

    Normally I'm ambivalent because when football season starts it means summer is over.

    However, since it has pretty much rained every goddamn weekend in my area, it doesn't feel like there has been a summer (at least one where you could do anything that didn't involve sitting under an umbrella).

    So bring it on (one last chance next weekend for a day at the track on the off-chance the weather cooperates).

    Indeed. Increased rainfall is a predicted result of global warming.

    It's been and cool down here too. I haven't noticed the rain, though. I don't mind a little drizzle now and then even when I'm outside as long as it's not raining hard all day.

    All in all, it's been a beautiful summer here for those of us who don't like the heat.

    And since I LOVE Fall and LOVE Football, September-November is my favorite time of year.

    If it's under 80 I have a jacket or sweatshirt on.
