It's 'soccer' where I live. I always thought America was the only place where American football was called soccer and football was football while everywhere else they called it football and our football American football.
...What DO you call 'soccer' in Australia? Is there a word for American football?

I think American football is 'Gridiron'? Usually just 'American football', though.
Soccer in Australia is the FIFA thing with the world cup and all, which is 'football' in Europe, UK etc. Football is rugby or 'Australian Rules'. There's a north/south thing involved in which one of those gets to be called 'the footy'.

mim: I wrote smut to amuse myself, but it forgot to become smut. They ended up fighting instead of in bed. Which was a problem when they were fanfic characters on a site too, actually...
