I need this

I will need to find something like this in London when I finally get off the boat. School offers crash soccer course for women A German adult education center is offering a women-only crash course on the basics of soccer to prepare them for next year's World Cup. The Training Center in the southern city of Nuremberg promises those who enroll in the course, entitled "Understand Soccer -- Women Want to Know Now!," an overview of the game's rules and language, as well as a potted history of some of the soccer's leading players. Nuremberg will be one of the 12 host cities for World Cup matches in 2006 and was also a venue for Confederations Cup matches in June 2005. "Ever wonder why men love soccer so much?" the school's website asks. "Do you want to know why referees call off-sides? With nothing but the World Cup on the airwaves, you now have the chance to understand what everyone's talking about." The course, taught by two women, includes an excursion to a Bundesliga match.

Haha! I could have used this before the European Cup last year. I was still able to have a general idea what was going on, at least. Soccer doesn't seem as complicated as American football or even baseball.

Now I could use some explaining about cricket...
