Fact of the Day: Soccer is Bad


While soccer is still hugely popular in England, at one point in history it was forbidden. King Edward II issued a prohibition on the sport (known then as mob-football) because of the chaos it would often cause in the streets. Those caught would be sent to jail.

  8. What I liked about soccer are the soccer fangirls. They don't mind showing their bodies out in public during the game.
