Soccer Again Explained

I have posted this clip before, but since some of you may have missed it and since there is a lot of attention surrounding soccer/football given the current World Cup, I will again post Marina Orlova's (AKA "hotforwords") explanation of why football is called "soccer" in America, whereas the word "football" there is reserved for the rugby-like sport known as "American football" or "gridiron" outside America.

BTW, if Marina was upset over Russia's semi final loss in the 2008 European cup, then she is probably not happy about the current World Cup where Russia didn't even qualify (Just like Sweden didn't).
