Oh the different names I am called,
If I end badly, you may be mauled.
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes,
Sometimes there are subtle blows.

One plus one equals one and a half
The clock's going, now don't laugh
It is a fierce battle often in rage,
That takes place on a green stage.

Most of the world says I'm pretty great,
From buenos días to G'day mate!

Is it

Soccer/football?

Oh the different names I am called,

See above

If I end badly, you may be mauled.

Riots during/after games

Head, shoulders, knees, and toes,

What you use to hit the ball

Sometimes there are subtle blows.

Slide tackles, running into each other, heads into chests (less subtle)

One plus one equals one and a half

The two periods = 1 hour 30 min

The clock's going, now don't laugh

Clock always runs

It is a fierce battle often in rage,

It's a sport, passions happen

That takes place on a green stage.

Grass field

Most of the world says I'm pretty great,

World Cup!

From buenos días to G'day mate!

World Cup!

  • $\begingroup$ The green stage comment is where I really honed in on an idea. $\endgroup$ – JonTheMon Mar 12 '15 at 14:46
  • $\begingroup$ I almost just made it a flat stage. Should have stuck with that. $\endgroup$ – Aggie Kidd Mar 12 '15 at 14:47
