Football is such a great sport.. no other like it, where so many countries embrace it and treat it as part of their culture!

Of course. But she ends up looking like a fool to many. Bernie Goldberg from Fox News also made a negative comment about Soccer fans.
“Another reason I don’t like it is because of the Americans who do like it. Most of these sports fans — a term I use with no regard for either word, ‘sports’ or ‘fans’ — wouldn’t know a fumble from a first down, a hit-and-run from a double play.

So Bernie takes a stab at Soccer fans because he assumes that are Liberal, why not take a stab at Football or Basketball "players" where the majority of them lean to the left?

Liberals get angry and tell us that the metric system is more "rational" than the measurements everyone understands. This is ridiculous. An inch is the width of a man's thumb, a foot the length of his foot, a yard the length of his belt. That's easy to visualize. How do you visualize 147.2 centimeters?

Liberals adore the metric system because it's European. Hang on a minute the Imperial Measurement System that America uses is British and last time I checked we were Europeans. So both metric and imperial measurements are European. Clearly Ann Coulter is not the sharpest tool in the box.

I think if Ann Coulter checked her facts most sports in the US are either foreign or derived from sports played abroad.

And the fact that youngsters aren't killed or paralysed from the neck down in Soccer (football) is a bad thing is it Ann or are you really that ignorant and warped that you enjoy seeing people badly injured.

I could go on, but the point being the fact that life changing injuries in football (soccer) are rare is in my opinion a good thing and unlike Ann Coulter I don't enjoy people being carted off in Ambulances and nor do I think it makes for good sport.

What is Ann Coulter anyway, she looks like Quagmires sex change mangina dad from Family Guy.

Rugby and American football are two different sports. Similar but very different.
