homes even with their warts.
I have to add soccer rules football sucks

During my time on ATS, I've come to understand the US viewpoint a little more - I don't always agree with it, naturally.
How do you think the US copes with adversity?
I ask because of the events over the last few days in the UK.
People here just seem to get on with things - I wonder if the US is the same?
BTW - soccer is a US word, since the modern game of "Football" was invented, by the english in about 1863.
I don't even understand how US football can be called by it's name - the ball hardly ever meets the foot!
on another note - how can you have "world series" baseball, when the only teams are from the US???
