    StephQ says:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for calling it football!  I was convinced that despite your explanatory blurb, you were going to post something from the NFL rather than soccer, but you did us footy fans proud!

    (P.S.  I’m really not that anal, but I just think it’s supercool!)

    Well, “football” does kind of rhyme with “withdrawal.” Heh.

    Just fabulous! Thank you! and yes, I’m missing my footie fix but the Charity Shield is soon, and that means the season is off again! My daily chats with friend Wendy (Portia Da Costa) about the games has gone, and I miss it! What shall I do with all the empty days? Oh, wait, I could write.

    Gotta disagree with StephQ. Very disappointed to find no football at all in the video, just soccer.

    PS. I don’t care what the rest of the world calls it. I don’t live in the rest of the world. And neither, last time I checked, does Sarah.

    And she did all that backwards and in heels…

    I loved watching the football matches and really enjoyed trying to figure out what theheck was going on with that game.  I also can’t wait for the end of next month for the start of college football!  Now, I can be as redneck as the next gal drinking beer at the big Saturday tailgate before the game, but I’m lusting pretty hard over that red dress and those heels.  And if they really did that dance with the ball, good on em.  That was killer.

    Awesome footwork! Soccer/football was not on my radar for the longest time, I am an NFL girl, but four years ago I started watching the World Cup and loved it. Thanks for sharing. I was missing the vuvuzelas.

    I am all about calling soccer both football and soccer, and calling American football by the name football. That IS the name of both sports. (Btw the usage of the word soccer is older than the word football so technically Americans do call it by the original name.) I am very ready for American football to start soon, especially college!

    And the skill involved in that video! I am amazed!

    come69…I’m not even going to bother with that one!

    I miss my football too :(
    when I feel bad I go and stand in my bottlebrush hedge with ten thousand bees buzzing around me and then I hear the vuvuzelas again LOL

    The other Leslie said just what I was thinking! Lol

    Two Leslie’s with a single thought.

    Killer shoes too.

    If you don’t care what the rest of the world calls, why do you care what Sarah calls it, regardless of where she lives?

    Being from the US, I admit that I was expecting American-style football, though I had no idea how it was going to tie in with the Tango.  I’m not particularly interested in either sport (though I watch the occasional college football game), so I’m not especially invested in what you call football/soccer, either way. 

    As for the video, I can tell from the editing that the trick shots were camera tricks, but the actual interaction between the dancers and the ball was incredible!  Very impressive.

    I call it neither football nor soccer, I call it calcio!

    I have a male friend who ballroom danced competitively and, being European, is obsessed with football (I’ve never watched it before this year), so he might enjoy this.

    PS there is not much hotter than a man who can dance and has an accent. Oh my.

    Julie says:

    I long to learn to tango before it’s not an option.

    I’d also like to dance with someone who knows what he’s doing.

    GREAT video.

    A co-worker tried for 2 years running to get her husband to take introductory ballroom dance with her so as to not embarrass themselves at their daughter’s wedding.  He balked, resisted, and finally grudgingly gave in in exchange for all kinds of return favours.  He loved it, and then bullied her in to signing them up again for the next semester.

    Great video.

    Unfortunately, you have completey disrupted my day; I love watching Argentine Tango – when done well, it’s sensual, slow-burning, intimate, passionate – and have just spent hours on YouTube instead of catching up with my paperwork!

    Sorry to go on about it (I’m not really sorry) but this Argentine Tango link is beyond fantastickyness:

    Gorgey-gorgeous. Wow!

    word97. Yes, that’s what I said. Word.

    @julie – it’s never too late to learn to tango

    @vixenbib – I totally agree, it’s my favorite dance.  Thanks for the link!

    @Suze – that’s what happened with my husband (but our first lessons were for our own wedding, then we learned Argentine Tango before going to Argentina for our honeymoon.  And learned that almost no one there actually dances tango for fun anymore in our generation).
