Football in Sweden??

Went to the store with Paul and seen these guys in the field next to where we park. Woah!
So after we got a few things we parked closer and went to have a look. I can't believe it..I laughed when I seen they didn't carry the ball the way they should of been doing and nobody was yelling and screaming like we Americans do, but you know what? They were having fun and I guess thats what matters right? Like the Swedes say .....'lagom' Lagom is a Swedish word with no direct English equivalent. The Lexin Swedish-English dictionary defines lagom as "enough, sufficient, adequate, just right. ...
Besides, they get carried away with their football, or as we call it...soccer!

No no.
that´s not american football
It´s called rugby and it´s simmilar to american football.
Rugby isn´t as "wild" as american football is.
