        I say "you" as a general term to apply to any American reader who would be shamed or prodded into not using the word Soccer with pride.
        I never called it soccer before I came here. And I've never met a Brit who called it that either...

          The perennial spectator!!!

          So the question is, What did you play??? My most thoroughly well thought out, most deeply sincere answer would be----

          With MYSELF!!!



          I also did much of this



          Though serious, I played a lot of out-door basketball on concrete, games of touch football, some softball here & there, wrestled with my buddies a bit, went jogging throughout my hilly & ocean side neighborhood---Squantum--- several times a week, ran track, & spent this good amount of time doing my utmost to evade the cops. Than I started boozing, & my athletic career came to this screeching halt, so to say!

            Organized? In high school:

            Baseball - 2B, SS
            Diving - 3m springboard,
            Swimming - 100 & 200m freestyle
            Wrestling - 150-152lb freestyle

            After high school, years later, I joined up with an adult football (soccer) league, dominated by Ecuadorians. They picked me to be their goalkeeper. I did that for a season -- until a fan ran out onto the field and stabbed the referee. As much as I love football (and still do) the idea of getting stabbed over it . . . . colored my decision to not renew my membership the following season.

                  And I'm sure that all of them were willing "patients" . . . .

                  You might get away with that kind of thing in West Virgina, but in the civilized world, you'll be wearing a number for the next twenty-to-thirty.

                            Baseball and hockey growing up.

                            After high school, I got into men's major fastball (fastpitch) and played internationally. Turned it into a career.
