Sorry to be a dick, but I think you mean "various." There is nothing random about those objects.

The word is magnate, and your comment is racist.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||Americans||
Americans are not unique in their distaste for diving/simulation. They are just not as familiar with the game. It might be more correct to say that diving is why many Americans are turned off by soccer.
And yes, as other commenters have suggested, it happens in basketball and hockey as well. In fact, it happens in direct relation to how big of an advantage it can potentially give your team. No matter how much a hockey player feigns injury, he can really only hope for a 2 minute power play. In basketball, where you can get opposing players ejected, it is much more prevalent. And of course, in soccer, where penalties are even more severe, it is rampant. This will not change unless the rules change.
Oh, and here's this...

Can't think of another a cappella song to climb so high on the U.S. charts. Mad respect.

Sweet zinger. I doubt soccer will ever recover.

Perhaps helmet stickers are not an OSU thing, but they still look like dog shit.

These refs will cost us this game.

Whiplash is better than all of those movies.
Birdman kind of sucked. I said it.

It was changed to David because Bruce sounded too gay. That's seriously the reason.
|41 weeks 6 days ago||I'm confused||
I'm confused about the knock on Dave Zirin. He was in no way endorsing the theory in his article, only reporting that it was indeed a theory--emanating from the Seahawks own locker room which, in and of itself is a story. He even ends the article by giving reasons that it's probably not true.
Zirin has done a lot of important work shedding light on corruption in the NFL and NCAA. You may not like his politics, but to say he does not deserve to be taken seriously over something like this is unwarranted in my opinion.

I'm down with Lupe, but Kendrick Lamar's new release will be rap album of the year.

This is the worst thread ever.

I think you illustrated my point perfectly, donk_destroyer. In my opinion, your statement was a highly political one.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Am I the only one that||
Am I the only one that considers such posts/threads political? At the very least, they are a tacit endorsement of militarism, which some us may be strongly opposed to. Just saying.

Getting kicked by soccer players hurts dude.

Sorry to break it to you guys, but SNL has always been terrible. A few sketches are gems, but they are very few and very far between. Mostly, you are just supposed to laugh at how terrible the writing is and wonder how much heroin it took for a sketch to get written and greenlighted. Hopefully, a cast member will go off script, or break character--and that's the only time it really gets interesting.
So anyone saying that SNL isn't funny anymore--or talking about the golden years--needs to get over themselves and just enjoy mindless television for what it is...mindless television.

I may have been a dick about it, but I'm not wrong.

When talking about the country Spain, even British people would agree that "Spain is in debt." When talking about the Spanish soccer team, you would say "Spain are European Champions." What else would it be? Spain is European Champions?
We do it with our own sports teams all the time, like "the Miami Heat are NBA Champions," or "the Thunder are playing poorly." In this case, the team names are also countries, so it is confusing you.
Jesus Christ, I hope none of you are English majors.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||I have absolutely no problem||
I have absolutely no problem with people that comment in threads that they are not interested in just to share their ignorant opinions.
That being said, you are a shitty person that has likely never played soccer, and has never travelled outside the US, ever.

officiating is bad

A bit anticlimactic in the end. Milan hunkered down and defended and Arsenal seemed to move away from what was working in the first half. Van Percie will be thinking about his point blank chance for the equalizer against Abbiati, who was on the ground and came up huge in the end. 3-0 is your final. Milan are through.

RVP just blew a golden opportunity.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||Had to work late||
Had to work late and didn't catch the game. I just got in after hearing the result on the radio. After joyfully ululating, I couldn't help but think about the opportunities we missed to take the championship outright. Purdue comes to mind. So does Iowa.
Oh well, we also won a lot of close games, and I'm sure the Buckeyes and Sparties are lamenting their winnable losses as well. It just would've been really nice not to have to share the title with those boobs.
Enough being an asshole. This one is huge. Especially for the seniors.
