Football is heart-stopping action from start to finish, a fast paced high octane game. In comparison, cricket is like, well, something more suited for staid grandmas.
It is rough. It is tough. You gotta have the muscle, the speed and the skills to play football. Any wimp can play cricket.
Most of the countries in the world even want to discuss cricket. Football is their lifeblood, the wine that livens up our lives.
I love football. 22 dummies chasing a ball and a shooter who cannot put a ball into a goal that is 10 feet wide and 8 feet high. Self goals are so hilarious. And the antics of Suarez and Balotelli are worth watching. Want more reasons? There are more than 22 million dummies following the game.
You do not need a pitch, bats, wickets, pads, gloves and other gear to play football. A ball and a play area are enough to get you started kicking the ball around and having a ball.
Why do I love football? I can play it come hail, shine or rain. I do not have to spend a whole day or five days like cricketing fools do to come to a result or worse, no result at all. It takes only 90 minutes.
Above all, football is a truly international game. All countries in the world participate in it.
