Do we call it soccer?

Jon Stewart the other day had a pretty good proposal on his show. It basically was, if the U.S. managed to win the FIFA World Cup, then the rest of the world has to call the sport 'soccer' instead of football.

Sounds like a good deal to me, although there's no tradeoff if the U.S. fails to win. Still say everything's solved by just calling the American form "gridiron". Ah well. Like 2/3 of Americans care.

Ghana!!!! At least England are going to lose to Germany, a country with a history of actually being good at football (unlike UK, US, or until today Ghana)
