I am not cultured or worldly enough to know the difference in accents in Italians. I just hear the bad sterotypical "that's a spicy meatball!" Sorry and no offense.
Non taken, btw I think that probably is the accent from sicily... but I'm not sure
For what I know a lot of the stereotypes the US have about Italy are the same stereotypes Northern Italy has about Southern Italy

I also have some problems with US accents... but I think I can find more or less the difference between the "classic" new york - tv series accent and the ones in the south, like Brad Pitt in Inglorious Bastards or the whole town in True Blood... (Or sheldon's mother haha)

well, my first advice would be "do not start following soccer"
I mean, in Italy 95% of sport is soccer, everybody follows it, it is everywere

I never liked soccer but now that I follow football, soccer sickens me.
I can't help it, the problem is that with that kind of play the referee must decide "live" and there's a lot of personal interpretations to the rules with the result that nobody is happy with the decisions taken by the referee...

Also players have the really really really bad and 'unsportsmanlike' habit to dive in order to trick the referee to assign a foul.


I've seen players diving without any contact, and that is the worst thing you can see watching a sport that is supposed to give you fun.

That said, if you already like soccer or want to see for yourself what it is about I put here some wikipedia link of championships you can check
Then from there you can find the list of teams and do the same thing I did...

for the Italian highest championship (Serie A)
link: h**p://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serie_A

for the European highest championship for clubs (UEFA Champions League)
link: h**p://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UEFA_Champions_League

for the World highest championship for national teams (FIFA World Cup)
h**p://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIFA_World_Cup


I put the last one in bold because I actually like the World Cup...
In fact here, with exceptions, the down sides of soccer are lighter than in the other cases, mainly because there are national teams instead of clubs.

You can also find the US national soccer team, but the world cup takes place only once in four years... so I don't know if you can find a lot of those.



Hope that helped, let me know what you will eventually choose.

Thank you very much

Go to http://www.nfl.com, hold the cursor on "Video" and a drop down list will appear. Click on "Game Rewind." This is a subscription (pay) service. I assume it works in Italy (everywhere), but I have no idea. If it works for you, you can watch every game I believe from the start of the 2009 season. That Texans vs. Redskins game was in week 2 of the 2010 seaon. Oh, and be sure to watch the Colts vs. Texans game the week before that, because that's the one where Foster just tore up the Colts for 230 something rushing yards.

Yeah, I've already seen both games, they were awesome... If I remember correctly in one of those two games the coach kept Foster along the sidelines for the whole first half...

The he released him and Foster just exploded

Hou-Was week 2 game was the first texans game I've seen...

I'll check right now if the service is available from Italy, if not.. well... Damn!!!

thanks to everyone for the welcome

first of all I'm sorry to disappoint you but I'm from the northern part of Italy (near venice) so probably the little italian voice in your heads is different from mine, that is because America's idea of Italians is mainly derived from the southern part of the country



This question has a very strange answer:
I discovered I like Football last year when I saw the SB (colts vs saints)
Then I decided I wanted to follow the regular season, for my luck it was already october so the season (2010-2011) was at the beginning (week 5)

I went to wikipedia and I opened the pages of every team in the NFL

Then more or less at random I closed the tabs of the teams that did not impressed me, for stupid reasons like the symbol or the color of the uniform

Actually there was a lot of randomness

Then with the few teams left I readed some news on the wiki page, in the end there were left only Bengals, Ravens and Texans

Finally I choose the texans because I was born in 4-27 so I'm a Taurus like Toro the mascotte (april-born Taurus like me), also Toro in Italian is the word for Bull/Taurus...

The first Texans game I watched was the 2010-2011 week 2 come back win against washington, that is as today one of the most exciting games I've seen

I hope you like my little story of how I became a Texans' fan
That's a great sotry, and completely different than most of us here. It is interesting thst you narrowed down to three AFC teams just by purechance. My friend (who is a Cowboys fans) and I have found we are loyal to the conference our teams play for (me AFC and him NFC) and there is no real reason for this. Other conference teams just aren't as interesting for us to watch.

Also, a bit of warning for you: as a fan of the Texans you are almost certainly subjecting yourself to a life of heartache and misery. It's just what the Texans seem to do for some reason. Just be prepared with that and when the success does come you can enjoy it. Honestly, I feel kind of bad for my kids knowing they will likely be Texans fans and thinking about how many times the team has broken my heart. It can be rough at times, certainly.

That's correct. Next week's game is meaningless and should be treated as a preseason game. Prep for the real game the following weekend.

You can't play mind games with the players. They know this is a meaningless game. You can't pull all of the starters, but as many that can be benched should be benched.
