Football is in its infancy here, but is developing rapidly. The sport started 3 years ago as a loosely connected league of 7 teams playing what can basically be described as a glorified tournament. Last season, the second season, one of the seven teams was lost (unfortunately it was the first team I coached), but a weekly television program broadcasting highlights hit the air and the playoff games were also broadcast. This year the government has officially recognized and sanctioned american football as a sport (http://ffacr.com/) making it easier to find fields to play and insure the players and 2 more teams are hitting the field (one of them is my new team
the Scorpions). There is even a flag football league starting to help develop younger players and spark interest in the sport.
This may not seem like a big deal, being that the majority of my readers are from the United States and have been able to find an outlet for their own unique form of diversion. We have the ability to play whatever, do whatever, or be whatever we want, but it is just not like that in the rest of the world. There is always something we can find that is just for us, something that makes us feel like we belong, just look at the Olympics and how many different sports we compete in. Now check out some of the other countries.
What do they compete in?
