But remember, they have rugby - a game where American Football was based on.
They played it without wearing any protective gear like the American football
players wear.  Actually I've read an article about the history of the american
football which said that American Football was a hybrid of football (soccer) and
rugby.  That's why rugby and american football got a similar in look for the
goal post.  Anyway football (soccer) is more exciting than American Football,
that's why there are drunken English and Germans always got into street brawls
whenever they met for a football matches in Europe (although they didn't enter
the stadium) and labeled "football hooligans".  anyway all around the world,
women football (soccer) is not as popular as the male football (soccer) except
in the US.

Who is this Bill Murray?  In my office there is a person name Peter Murray who
came from New York who is attached to my office as Sun's Java consultant.  Maybe
he has some relation with this Bill Murray.
