Startling information.Soccer came first then basketball.A word of warning - don't use the word soccerto a member of FIFA! HQ's Zurich.It is called FOOTBALL which is quite sensible - a foot kicks a ball into a net - GOAL!Still called soccer here in Australia by some as we have 3 codes of football - League, Union and Aussie Rules (sometimes still but often when I was young called Aerial Ping Pong - but ill advised to use that terminology at present unless you like your face re-arranged).In the USA you still call - "THE WORLD GAME - "SOCCER", don't use that term in Europe or South America and for that matter anywhere outside the USA!---------I see Trump has now included Senator McCain on his list - "he shouldn't have been shot down over Vietnam". Hasn't he heard of anti-aircraft batteries??? What an insult to a person who spent 5 years in "The Hanoi Hilton" jail, and then had a Hanoi Hilton nightmare to select that looney - Palin??? God is there any hope for the G.O.P and the lunatics and Tea Party fanatics who support this idiot and Palin??B J Hunnicut aka Colin

Never knew that. Our Toronto Raptors lost in the playoff game last night, sigh.
That one I knew. Soccer balls aren't that easy to dribble though
