Yep, just us Americans and our strange ways. Or inability to come up with a name for American football so we changed the name of real football instead.... 

Anyway, it's just about showtime!

Off topic, but also relevant. :)

The term "soccer" was invented in England, not the US. The two biggest myths about the word are: 1) Americans invented it, and 2) only Americans use it - both are completely wrong. The term 'soccer' is used in many countries of the British Commonwealth because they merely inherited it from the mother country (e.g., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc. all use the term too).

Just an FYI...

 

(P.S. To those who are curious, here is the derivation: when football/soccer started in England professionally, it was called "Association Football" - the organization which runs the sport in England is still called the FA (i.e., the Football Association). 'Association' was often abbreviated as "Assoc." when used in print - this later led to the nickname "soccer" (the same way that rugby is nicknamed "rugger".) It was used interchangeably with 'football' in England even into the 1960s; Premier League teams have camps called "soccer camps" even today (the truth is that they called them that long ago and never changed - I think many people today mistakenly think that the clubs are somehow "sucking up to the Americans" by using that term, but they have always used it). Thus endeth the lesson... :)
