    Hey, The American Football World Cup Is Going On Right Now, And We're About To Kill Mexico

    American Football WM 2011: World Championship 2011

    Apparently there is a world cup of American football, and the US just beat Mexico 17-7 to advance to the finals. The other semi-final is Canada vs. Japan and they play tomorrow. It is run by the International Federation of American Football (or the IFAF) and the tournament has been held once before in 2007 and the US won, shockingly enough.

    I was able to catch the last minutes of the US/Mexico game on the internet and it wasn't terrible football. I guess there are no pro's allowed and the Americans limit their selections to recent university players from all divisions of college football to even the playing field.

    I might try to watch the finals on the 16th if Canada beats Japan.

    Canada beat Japan 31-27, and will play for gold against the US on Saturday. I'll post a link to the game in this thread if anyone else wants to catch the game.
