Europeans, as we know, take their football (our soccer) seriously – it isn't until a team wins that their fans can stop being so focused and have some serious fun. Exhibit A: after the German national team beat Argentina in Euro 2012, some chaps still full of cheer (and beer, presumably) came upon this woman trying to slot her tiny Citroën C2 into an equally tiny parking spot. Naturally, they decided she could use a cheer of her own. It is guaranteed this did not happen after the Germany-Italy game.

When people say they want their own theme music or cheering section or Mariachi band, we're pretty sure this is isn't at all what they mean. But it's funny for us. Check it out below.

      " ... football (our soccer) seriously " - AB AB, soccer is an abbreviation of the sport "association football". This is shortened to football for most people. Likewise, rugger is an abbreviation of "rugby football". The difference is that the minority call this sort "football" and the majority refer to it as "rugby".

        I was going to comment about that as well, before all the wannabe-sophisticated people start complaining that we call it soccer when it should be football. The truth is "soccer" is a British term. In British slang of those times (as far as I'm aware), it was common for Brits to say things or names with an 'er at the end of it (ie. "Hey Johnners how's it hanging lad!") And as you said, Association Football was the proper term but the British took the "SOC" from AS[SOC]IATION and hence the name "SOC'cer" was born. So there you have it. Soccer is not a random made-up name that Americans invented for the sake of being different. It's a British term. And it's not just Americans that use the term "Soccer" as the official name. In South Africa and Australia they also officially call it "Soccer".

          Correct - it is a British term founded by the Football Association shortly after it was conceived around 1860 or so.
      You missed it

      "...after the German national team beat Argentina in Euro 2012..." - what was Argentina doing in EURO 2012? Just a refresher: EURO is a European championship, between European countries. Argentina is a South American nation, far from Europe and all that.

      I'm pretty sure Argentina is not part of Europe, so Germany most likely didn't play them in the Euro 2012 tournament.

      Argentina? Didn't know that was in Europe. Sure we aren't thinking of Greece?

      Question to the author (Jonathon Ramsey): Sir, do you really think that Argentina is a part of European continent? I can't believe but you actually wrote this: "...after the German national team beat Argentina in Euro 2012"... Wow!!! Bravo!!!

      Germans don't have football, they have soccer, a sport in which players flail around theatrically whenever another even so much as comes close to them... falling to the floor in utter agony like drama queens.
