It's true, but nonetheless while in Britain, Europe and Mexico I've had many friendly conversations with locals about football. Most people, even football fans, are decent sorts who'd rather chat your ear off than bite it off. Not once have I had a bad experience.

White Sox games? Now those were scary.
