Yeah, just go Steam, man. Assuming you use the service, and download caps aren't an issue for you, that'll always be the easiest way to go about it.

Huh. Apparently the mobile site lies when it says your message was posted, and instead just deletes it. That's cool.
Basically, while possibly doing some good, I don't think the games would be particularly effective in learning the sport (though they're pretty dang fun). I've played plenty of soccer and hockey games without having learned crap. I'd recommend reading up on the basic rules, and a few of the more technical ones as well. After that, start watching whatever team is broadcast locally. Local broadcast commentators are generally better at describing what's actually happening on the court and why, as opposed to the ESPN or TNT guys who just like to talk about LeBron James or Kevin Durant whenever they possibly can, and often disregard what's actually happening on the court.
I recently bought a physical album as well as the digital version at the same time because I didn't want to wait a few days for the shipping. I have no regrets. Go forth and spend your money with pride.
You can simply start a download of a video to see that it is in fact a 2.4 gig file.
But anyway, I had the same thought that the game looked really smooth in the video. The blur effects are definitely part of the game, just as they were in the original Dark Souls, but things still seemed real fluid. Though as far as I know, GB videos are still 30 fps. Finally, I don't know what your monthly quota is, but HD GB videos are always worth it, haha. Some places (Comcast for example) don't even enforce their limits, so you might be totally fine.
So maybe this is only barely on topic, but why exactly are people hesitant about spending $60 on a multiplayer game? In theory, you're getting an experience that'll last significantly longer than any single player campaign ever could.
Possibly more on-topic, Valve has a history of taking action against accounts redeeming keys meant for other regions. I don't know if EA would do the same thing, but it's a possibility.
In a particularly gross bathroom, I'll usually dry my hands before turning off the water, and just use the paper towel as a barrier between the gross sink and my hand while turning the water off. It works out.
Normally I don't worry too much about touching the sinks.
