Hey, European - there are probably alot of things you just "don't get." Try not to let it upset you, because I have a feeling it's not going to get any better. lol You're not even a good troll, if that's what you're trying to do. lol

Yeah, it's our heftiness, alright. Just like you said: American football players are all fat slobs, it's true. Wait a minute, aren't there 6'0", 210 pound NFL cornerbacks who run 4.3 in the 40 yard dash (I'll convert this to metric if you'd like, but trust me, it's very agile) and change direction and velocity in the blink of an eye? Come to think of it, aren't there 6'4", 250 pound linebackers who perform only slightly less quickly than those cornerbacks, and could run down the average man on the street like a diesel truck? lol Can you imagine if those same gentlemen grew up with football as their first love?

"you know what we think of your size...."
You know what I think of your intellect? lol Careful, you may single-handedly destroy the myth of European intellectual superiority. I breathlessly await your reply. lol

Keep your hair on, zzz- I thought you were going to bed or something..
Those big agile guys you describe would be lousy at football (soccer) but would probably make OK rugby players, if they could perform without all that armour..

I am also European and I am anti-football. And anti-ice-hockey. And anti- Formula 1. And if this World Cup doesn't end soon, I am also going to be anti-married.

Take a civics class....so what if he got more votes...he did not win the electoral college.

And BTW, how do you know he got more votes, almost 5.5 million were never counted!
