I don't follow the Olympics except for the swimming events and the track. What is Wendy Ball? Is that the same thing as what I know as soccer?
Yes. It is a disparaging name for English football/soccer.
Based on the male professional players being a bunch of big girl's blouses and total primadonnas.
In reality based on peoples jealousy and spiteful envy of young men who earn shedloads of cash, shag loads of supermodels, drive Aston Martins and Bentleys and generally live high on the hog.
(I guess the female players are entitled to big girls blouses.)
