what a ridiculous sport
We call it "soccer" here.
I never understood why you guys call this game "football" since it has pretty much nothing to do with feet. You should call it the "carrying-the-ball-around-game" or just "rugby for pussies".
Why do you call a sport that permits the use of any part of the body but the arms/hands football?
It's because all of these games derive from shared tradition among the peasant/working classes. That tradition has given us rugby, 'soccer', and 'football' (using yank terms), as well as other similar sports. These were distinct from the pastimes of the landed aristocracy, whose pursuits were equestrian. Hunting, polo, jousting (depending what era you consider). Just consider some of the 'ba' games still played in parts of the Isles.
In short, it's 'football' because it's played on foot and not on horseback.
So let us stop this petty squabbling and rise up to overthrow the landed classes. I'll let the 'rugby for pussies' comment pass for now, as I can only dispel so much ignorance in one day.
I will add that I am impressed with 19 of the defense. He caught the ruse early, didn't hesitate, and carried the play to the end. If this is a highlight film for anyone, it's him.
I hate to be Captain Obvious, there is a tag that covers the size of that lad's Cajones.
I'm sure Bill Parcells would have something to describe such a play.
Reminds me of when I was in Little League and sucked at hitting but could run fast. My coach had me do a play when I got walked, I would kind of jog to first and then break into a sprint to second. Most people didn't know you could do it so it almost always worked.

Okay guys, Statue of Liberty play on Three... HUT HUT!
Ha ha ha!
The only video I can find of this play failing and the kid with the "wrong ball" getting destroyed is sadly set to fucking Seether.
I like the "wrong ball" one better. http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=20583
