Football, the spelling thereof

For unknown reasons, Americans are trying to be politically correct with the rest of the world and allowing for "soccer" to be also referred to as "futbol".

Not football. Futbol. Must be a way of reaching out to their Latino residents. Notwithstanding the fact that the sport remains "football" to those of us in English-speaking countries and not some forced Spanish hybrid.

Speaking of Spanish stuff, how about Rafa Nadal... Brilliant match to win the Wimbledon title against Roger Federer.

Congrats to Bermuda's men's cricket team on their first win in the Intercontinental Cup, against Canada. Hopefully it'll be the start of a winning trend for the guys and inspire the public to again support the team in good numbers.
