Louisville has a really good football team

Most of you probably didn't know this, but in other parts of the world the sport that we refer to as "soccer" is actually called "football."

Absorb this new knowledge, go back and read the headline again, laugh for hours.

For those of you who hadn't noticed, the Louisville soccer team is 9-1-2, ranked No. 7 in the country, and is a legitimate national title contender. The Cards' latest victim was none other than Kentucky, whom they bettered 1-0 at Cardinal Park on Wednesday night.

I've never been fully able to embrace soccer, but I will admit that it was my favorite sport to go watch in high school. I didn't understand any of the rules but I loved booing when the referee gave the ball to the other team, heckling opposing players from close distances, and being amazed by the fact that players could apparently shove each other multiple times without it being a big deal. I can only imagine that the same attractions are present in the game at the college level.

Anyhow, major congrats to the Louisville soccer team. Here they are being awesome:
