Thread: Tutorial for My European Friends...

  1. #1

    Tutorial for My European Friends...

    or others who do not understand American Football!

    It is played with an odd shaped ball. For some reason it is called a "pigskin" although it doesn't look, smell or taste like pig.


    The ball is kicked or thrown to another player...

    Kick...


    Throw...


    Then one of them runs to the end of the field and does a very strange dance.

    Sometimes they jump all over each other and make a big pile.

    Not to worry, unlike your football there are lots of breaks in the action -- purrfect for eating or napping!

    This is most helpful! The girls are reading it over and over again in order to commit the finer points of the rules to memory. They will get so much more out of the Superbowl experience if they understand what is going on.

    Thank you very much E's, for this most helpful tutorial.

    Well there you go && might I say very well put.. That pretty much summed it up nicely.. Of most lets for sure not forget the Napping & Eating.. Oh I hate to intro bad news but = its called pigskin due to the leather of the ball is pigskin..

    ~~~Thank You Very Much {Kim} kimlovescats for the Grand Siggy~~~

    Edwina and Eddie, to tell you the truth, I've always wondered what this game was about. You know, over here, it's not quite the same. First of all, the ball is round, but whether it's made from pig skin or not, I don't have a clue. However, some things are the same.... the ball is kicked and the humans (typically boys) run after it like mad. They also do this funny dance near the thing with a net in it - but I've not seem them end up in a pile alltogether... would be fun though!

    Edwina and Eddie, you look like terrific players, especially you, Eddie! I think you're quite a good dribler and I believe you'll win Gold one of these days!

    A good thing that you have more breaks than we have in Denmark! You do deserve a good nap!

    Thank you for the lesson Edwina and Eddie, it's very clear
    However, I expected some illustration for the step "Sometimes they jump all over each other and make a big pile"

    Eddie, that is really what the boys needed. They can't wait to do that pile thing and only want to ask whether girls can pile up too

    now i get it!!!

    Thank you for the lesson, now I understand it better... in my country we call football (futbol in spanish) what you call soccer and that's what make everyone crazy.

    I agree with randi about the breaks, you sure deserve a nap

    Thank you very much for the insight, Eddie and Lady Edwina! This silly game never made any sense to me even though my cousins and I used to play two-hand touch very often. Soncat is the sports guru of the family and I must say he's very patient when I ask him what's going on. To me, the best part of football is the food and the end of the game!
