Having fallen in love with it once, it is impossible to forget it. Here so it can inspire on a rhyme literally out of the blue. Never would think that this trouble will concern me. And it was sufficient to see the one and only game. It once and for the rest of life. Somewhere it is more, somewhere it is less, but nevertheless. I assume an opportunity that not at all the love to this game develops as it was in my case. Though, probably, uniqueness of a way is rather exception of the rule, than a normal situation anywhere.
… It appears, early allowed to acquire a grass to the statement that England - the homeland of game number one. Was going to argue? Well whether you know. To what to pull down the beautiful locks erected once if I will not be able zamest to put them new and, above all - more worthy from the esthetic point of view. When gave paternity (motherhood?)

From historical sources knows, for example, that various options of game in “ foot " ball; were held in high esteem at many people. So, during an era of antiquity there were such ancestors of modern soccer who were called Tcu Chu, Kemari (Far East); Pokatok, Pasukuakokhovog (American continent); Episkiros, Garpastum (Ancient Greece and Rome).
