The OTHER Football

Coach Lasso

I’m more of a Rugby fan myself, but I do know enough about football to NOT call it Soccer, unlike our American cousins across the pond. So imagine my delight when I came across a very funny American comedian taking the piss out of Americans and their poor knowledge of the rules surrounding the “beautiful game”….the other football 🙂

This skit, for NBC’s advert campaign of their coverage of the Premier League this season (every game, every week, live), portrays Coach Lasso (Jason Sudeikis) having just arrived in England to coach the Premier League’s Tottenham Hotspur, and he’s realizing it’s football…. Just not as he knew it.

My favourite line…..”How many countries does this country have?”

Jumpers for goalposts anyone?
