U.S. soccer team to play for Olympic spot in Guadalajara
Things could get ugly in Guadalajara tomorrow when the U.S. soccer team plays Mexico for Olympic qualification.
Last Thursday, when the U.S. played Canada in a qualifying round in Zapopan before 1,500 Mexicans, the crowd hooted "The Star-Spangled Banner," it booed U.S. goals. And it chanted "Osama! Osama! Osama" as the American players left the field with a 2-0 victory.
Tomorrow, 60,000 fans are expected to watch the game that will determine which team goes to Athens.
The Mexicans are hoping for revenge. The U.S. team knocked Mexico out of the World Cup in 2002.
The Guadalajara police are already mobilizing to control highly charged soccer fans and to protect U.S. team players in case things get out of hand.
Someone, who got banned, had a delicious suggestion. Obviously I won't repeat it. I will say if people want to commit suicide, who are we to argue with them.
A huge trench filled with alligators might just do it.
No, I don't remember that. When did that happen?
My Dear Sir,
We here in Texas do not feel we lost the Battle of the Alamo so much as that we just ran out of troops. Please rethink your position on this matter.
Please note I called you sir, not you stupid low life potatoE grower! ;-)
It's a known fact that there are simply chanting things that Americans just don't wnat to chant.
Face it, we're spoiled.
Press '1' for English.
When they start shooting up my neighborhood, spraypainting the side of my house, receiving additional public assistance for their 7th child, and refusing to converse with me in English ... the Scots will be in my personal top 5.
Do any Americans do that? Is America in your personal top 5?
4. Saudi Arabia
7. Russia & Satellites
10. Every prisoner in America.
11. Illegal drugs
12. Democrats, Liberals, Socialists, Communists and Aetheists.
13. The UN
14. Abortion 15. N. Korea 16. Vietnam 17. Cambodia 18. The Kennedy Family en masse!
19. Peter Jennings, Tom Brokjaw, and Dan Blather
20. And the two you've all been waiting for....Bill and Hill
Enjoy your new lease on life, the sweetness of the fresh air, the blue sky, the birds singing, and Freedom flowing throughout the land! AAAhhhhhhhh!
You might be right on this --- I think the soccer fans are more often from the class of Mexicans who would be in big trouble if we stopped massive immigration from Mexico --- the less privileged in Mexico seem to have less time for soccer and seem to like baseball more as a sport. If the Revolution breaks out it would be these people who would scream for our help to stop the peasants from coming after them.
Damn, this would be a cool Nintendo game!
As a matter of fact ... no, they don't.
I live in Los Angeles. A place where 40% of the drivers are unlicensed and uninsured, not to mention, not here legally (three crimes right there, no?).
I make a phone call to a service agency, it says "Press 1 for English" and if I don't press 1, it continues in Spanish as the default. I've been in line behind people speaking Spanish, with five kids in tow speaking only spanish, using food stamps in excess of my entire monthly grocery bill. I have personally witnessed my property being stolen, and the side of my house being vandalized, by people coordinating these activites completely in Spanish. And worse.
I consider all of the above patently UnAmerican.
And if 90% of the crime in my neighborhood was committed by Scottish People, I just might call for tighter restrictions on Scottish Immigration. But .... they aren't scottish. And you know they aren't.
The emporer has no clothes.
I guess somebody's gotta say it.
Rule number one. If we are ever going to save the country some feelings are going to get hurt.
Not to mention having the nerve to whoop and holler against the country that is keeping them well stocked with Pampers and cerveza. These folks actually had full size Mexican flags on the hoods of their Impalas. What they did was tuck both ends under, then slam the hood. That is so not cool.
As long as drunken Scottish soccer fans aren't living here while they talk trash, I don't care. They do it on American soil and there just might be a problem.
I never did figure out what the symbolism of that was. I still don't.
Earlier Villa had murdered 16 Americans he had removed from a train in Mexico; there was also a later raid on Glen Springs, Texas, during which 3 Americans were killed.
