That would be an enormous database. <br><br>For example, the first time we played in England, and I had to do an interview with somebody when the album Absolutely Free was out. There's a song on it called I'm losing status in the high school, and a line in the song says, "a bunch of pompom girls look down their nose at me". Well, nobody in England knew what a pompom girl was, they don't have cheerleaders there, see. And so I was confronted with the fact that it never occurred to me that outside the US they don't even have cheerleaders. [font=arial black]So how do you explain what a cheerleader is to a person who is so sophisticated that their society is evolved to the point where they don't need them ? [/font]<br><br>So there's a lot of stuff in the songs about the way things are here, and unless somebody has come here and looked at it - like you guys have - it doesn't make any sense at all...[/quote]<br>

not a big soccer fan, my hometown is a bigtime soccer town (my high school team was #1 in the country for a few weeks when i was senior).  football isn't too much fun either.  imo football stadiums were good for only 1 thing....Image...and we cant even do that anymore.  :(

You were right all along. I hadn't seen this thread before cos I wasn't around then.<br><br>Soccer, Aussie Rules (that's a type of football, for you uninitiated out there), Gridiron. For me, they all suck for the reasons Mungo eloquently explained.<br><br>Rugby is the one (World Cup starts in OZ in Oct). I like Rugby League as well, but the Aussies are so far ahead of everyone else that it's no longer a competitive international sport.<br><br>American football coaches give the best quotes though.<br><br>Flame away, neanderthals.....

I admit it - your team is the best.........for now, but come November, things may be different. If it comes down to NV vs Poms, I hope you guys win, but we're not out of it yet.<br><br>BTW you kiwis must have been shitting yourselves while Flatley was lining up for his conversion shot. It would have made it 2 points the difference, and the possibility of another last-second penalty win. If only.....if only.......... :'(
