Hello! I'm not exactly brand new to the forum, but I haven't introduced myself yet, so here we go!

I'm relatively new to the world of football. In fact, until 2010 I hated everything to do with soccer. I thought I was a stupid sport. However, my brother started forcing to play the 2012 World Cup FIFA game. I quickly realized my hatred was unfounded and fell in love with the sport. I loved how it worked, I loved the rules, and I loved the beauty of it. Knowing nothing about soccer, I started playing with the team of my favorite country: Italy. I had no clue they were actually a good team. I also had no clue that there were clubs, so after the world cup my brother told me I needed to start looking for a club to support. I immediately went the the Italian teams. I judge books by their covers, so I went and looked through all the Serie A team's colors, jerseys, and logos. There was no comparison. Inter was above and beyond the best I saw, and I got lucky. For I had picked a wonderful team. I started to immerse myself in the history and culture of the team and have been enjoying it ever since!
Now I'm happy to be joining other Inter fans from across the globe here on FIF!

This thread gives such a stereotypical image of you as an American it's almost not funny.

Sadly, I am a stereotypical American... complete with junk food and video games.

And as for football/soccer... I use them interchangeably, though I realize football is the 'correct' term.

Welcome :D

Good to see another American "saw the light"... I remember back when I started watching football it was hard to find a single person around here who didn't think it was boring. Still a minority though unfortunately.

Yes, but hopefully the MLS can grow and start changing everyone's minds! I'm no fortunate enough to be in a MLS city, sadly. The closest I can get is DC United... which isn't very close either. :(

Mine is San Jose Earthquakes but I've never been able to get very interested in MLS.

That might be attributed to the fact that it sucks!
I can dream, though.

Its hard to get interested in the MLS because of the level of play and the fact that most of the best players are players just about to retire looking for place where they can have good social life and play a little bit of football in between.

A lot live in the US although they use the flag of their country of origin. But there are a few Americans around here. I'm not American actually but live here.

Cool.

And just warning you all... I tend to act a lot like Jeremy Clarkson, that is to say... I can be highly offensive!
