What's better than One Direction? ONE DIRECTION IN UNIFORM!
Wanna know a secret? Every time we read a headline or tweet about the bros from One Direction playing "football," we think of them in head-to-toe padding, rocking impenetrable helmets, and going up against 350-pound linebackers! Then, we panic because in what world can sporty U.K. cuties like Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson withstand the impact of a 350-pound tackle?!
But, then we remember that across the pond, "football" is actually code for soccer! Which -- as you can see by this photo that blondie Niall posted of him and his fellow "Story Of My Life" singers playing with the L.A. Galaxy -- is One Direction's favorite pastime. When they're not busy killing it at the EMAs and stuff, of course.
