The World In Sports

A German newspaper acknowledged that their brand of Supermen have done what no amount of conciliatory legislation could: knock out the horror of "ghetto basketball." Read the article, it's rather surpassingly ardent.

As an example of Peter "Schikelgrube" Schilling's race-baiting, I'm quoting Deadspin's rather wonky translation:
"That street ball, threaten Rap and ghetto chic and the commercial success of the sport, has recognized the league itself years ago. At that time the players were still dressed with gold chains and hung in the gangsta look: baseball caps, schlabberige pants, long T-shirts and sneakers were open standard".
I would just like to point out that the last time a lot of people followed German fashion advice, a lot of bombs had to be dropped before they shut the fuck up.

Oh Canadian Brother
Vancouver Canucks' fans celebrated their home loss in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals by destroying their own city. I think that is very amusing. They are so very rational and mature, those Canadians ... unless they lose a hockey match. Or a game of Beer Hunter.

As the tourism guide explains,
"Canada is known for our people's friendly nature, and Vancouver's citizens take great pride in our welcoming, clean, safe streets - day or night, all year round."

Now I know my country is fighting three (four?) wars in the Mideast, pro sports are pry levers for fartbag owners, our economy disappeared into the greedholes and some of our states still harbor the Plague (seriously, Black Death I'm talking). But looking around, I don't see any other sanity out there on our planet, either. At least not when it comes to sports.

Conservatives won absolute power in the recent election here despite two thirds of voters not voting for them...

Not so much as a whisper of dissent...

The Canucks don't win the Stanley Cup...

Vancouver is burned to the ground.

Nice to see you've got your priorities right, asshats!
