I'm American and once was called a "soccer mom' ... and just HAD to laugh! My son played football from the time he could hold the ol' handegg. LOLOL Love that name! American football! LOLOL The sports are totally different in the USA, called differentnames AND played differently but both are well-respected, especially by the moms who lug the kids to and from the games, sell the goodies at the snack bar (and often make them, too), as well as wash those uniforms til they gleam, scrub the shoes and more! So, for ALL moms everywhere ... involved in soccer or football, or both .... I think I can safely say, for us, it doesn't REALLY matter to a six year old. They just want to go PLAY- one, both, neither!! ENJOY THE SPORTS---FORGET THE NAME BLAME GAME!
