Ren'shai field trip

You're not very subtle, Lava.  But, subtlety is overrated 😉 . I turn in my 400 page dissertation in 19 days from now.  So I'm either a) working or 2) telling myself I should be working.  Neither of which has given me much chance to come here.

 

@Phaedra I'm from the States originally, but moved to Edinburgh, Scotland seven years ago, and whenever someone mentions the word "football" I look at it twice then carefully read the context.  American football is REAL football... soccer isn't.

I was too (for me)! *iching in fingers to comment on part 2, but seeing as hay might be inclined to reevaluate the worth of his very heavy books, finds it best not to prod...for now* 😁

If American "football" is football simply because you play it on your feet there's a whole bunch of sports that should be renamed as football😝 real football is when your foot actually has to touch the ball plus the ball is pwettier

No, Lava, you kick a ball in real football.  How do you kick it off or make a field goal?  So, yeah...your criticism is invalid.  And pwetty?  That's a matter of personal taste.  A real football is beautiful.  Especially when you've thrown it so it's spinning through the air.  Far better than that boring black and white patched excuse of a ball only half-filled with air.  And all you do with a soccer ball when you take it out is abuse it, kicking it around.   I always wonder why they never just leave.

Since gridiron, like football, is based on footballgames, your ancesters took with them from mostly Asia, 

and Europe (where most sport on foot rather than on horse, with a ball, originally was called football, but like I said if that is the standard we are to follow today...) I don't think USA can claim to  have the answer key

 on what is "real" football. For the same reason since football also does not come from USA, and also fun fact, as far as I can find was established as a genuin sport before Gridiron, ahem..I don't really see how USA in any way is entitled to slap a new name, calling football soccer, and thereby declear it's not real football. 

Secondly I find both gridiron and football tremendiously boring to watch, but if I have to, I rather watch football cause watching the footwork (wich is years of hard work) is poetry. And who told you the ball is only half filled? How do you kick a ball across the field if it's soft?😛

I will agree beauty is in the eye of the beholder, to me the Amercan football looks like a magnified moose poop, maybe if they would change the color it would look better... Ooooh they should totally paint it in colors and give it wings! think how pretty it would look flying like a butterfly😁

Whatcha think @Phaedra, you wanna paint the ball, or twack me with a club, lol? *looking for mumsys skirts just in case* 😂

But you know what? We, ahem I mean you ren'shais, should tots make this the next ren'shai discussion!!! 

 

BTW Hay, you might be tremendiously smart, but you only managed to momentarily distract me *looking more curious than ever* 🤔🙃😏

Like you say, lovely @Lavandula, beauty is most certainly in the eye of the beholder. I agree that foot work in soccer is poetry, just as much as a perfectly thrown football. I wouldn't say the look of a football is particularly pretty, but then I don't think soccer balls are either. However, the smell of the leather of a football is quite nice. Would I paint a football so that it's more colorful? In a fantasy world, sure! I would glitter that baby up and put wings on it (kind of like the Snitch)! But for practicality purposes, coloring it would make it harder to grip, and therefore useless to play with 🙂.

Maybe...but it sure would look epic! And the glitter would drizzle down on all the players and then in came a unicorn flying throug making a rainbow, and if they ran in it they would get super speed, and there was a purple dragon swirling above  shooting down small green fireballs that the players had to avoid... Now THAT I woulda watch no matter how the ball looked!

Yeah watching football is not my thing, but I think I should get some (lots) of points towards my der'manshima exam for the effort😇

Also Hay, since you are all raised and the boss over us minteepies now, you are obviously to grown up for little aspie shenanigans..right?

Now I never did quite get what MaA stands for, but since kaylee is Master Of naughtiness I figure MaA is up the same alley, ergo bigger and better so....

@LavandulaI'm looking at my heavy books and trying to decide which one would suit best if I needed to take measures. I think I told you no pranks. :smile:  We were Aspies together once upon a time, but now I'm supposed to be "responsible".  (Whatever "responsible" means).  

 

I'll update Haycraftd's PhD in a few weeks.  I'm turning it in on the 31rst, then packing and leaving for New Orleans two days later.  Then I can tell you all what this summer's been like.  My mother's giddy, the only pre-lockdown friend I've been able to see in person since March is worried, and I finally became afraid a few days ago.
