The Battle Called Football

Battle lines keep forming
cries cried aloud
Mindless crowds swarming
everyone so proud

Lined up in a line
bulky armor being worn
Captains giving the sign
the battle was suddenly born

Clashes of the plate
bashing of the bone
Fights written in slate
this battle has really grown

Run as fast as you can
Do not stop at all
Don't eye a fan
And never drop the ball!

Poetry is love and love is life.

Hehe, this made me chuckle, Krystopher. Enjoyed the read!

I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man.

How could I not vote on this?  It hits chords in me that resonate like autumn saturday afternoons.  Will they ever get here?

The title caught my eye, and I thought I'd take a look at it to see why guys love the game so much. Then I realised you were probably talking about American football, and it wasn't what I had in mind, which is strictly speaking, called soccer.

But this is definitely a good read. Though, I still don't quite understand. Why is it called football when you're allowed to use your hands to carry the ball. Unlike soccer, where aside from goalkeeper, no other players are allowed to use their hands. So, to be more accurate, shouldn't soccer be referred to as football, and not football? I'm getting a bit confused myself.
