I think I am going to puke. Then cry. Or maybe cry first and then puke. Who comes up with these ideas, funds them and gets them implemented? Was this one of Obama's grovel-ready projects?

I wonder what Obama will call it. The Mohammmad Atta Sports Field? Khalid Sheik Mohammed Sports Complex? How About Osama Obama?

I’m not entirely opposed to the inmates having access to a soccer field, but $750K!?!?!??!?

This is sheer lunacy.

Let’s have a Sunni Vs Shittee football game. Americans always love watching football so we must televise the event.

I vote no pads or helmets allowed.

Place your wagers now!

Let them play for awhile, and then tell them the ball is made from pigskin.

If 500K or so of that was for mines planted in the field, I have no objection.
