George Best quote. "If you'd given me the choice of going out and beating four men and smashing a goal in from thirty yards against Liverpool or going to bed with Miss World, it would have been a difficult choice. Luckily, I had both."

Historical note: American football derived from rugby football, which in itself derived from football. The original football (association football) started with the laying down of set rules in 1863 for a ball game which had been played in various forms since at least the 12th century, often between the men of whole towns. At least 3 of the early type of the game still take place annually in the UK. Ball kicking games are recorded earlier all over the world, the earliest reference being around 200 BC in China.
