Colorado Creatives Release Football to Football Translator in Time for World Cup Kickoff
The World Cup, a month-long international soccer tournament, starts today and happens through June and if you’re as clueless as the rest of us real sport-loving Americans, you need a little help. Introducing The Football to Football Translator — a Google Chrome extension that translates the sissy international World Cup lingo on any webpage into real red-blooded NFL-related terminology.
World Cup translates to “Basically, the Super Bowl of Soccer.”
Manager translates to “This is the head coach of the soccer team. A lot of them wear fancy suits because they’re fancy.”
90th minute translates to “The two minute warning without a TV timeout. Sometimes they add 5 extra minutes for no reason though.”
Ben Smith, Stephen Dalton and Harold Jones — a group of advertising creatives living in Colorado — created the app to help their American friends follow and understand all the news surrounding the World Cup. Thanks for the help, fellas.
