Right that's my point. We'd dominate American football right now, because no other countries play American football. We used to dominate basketball, until other countries started playing and focusing on that as the only national sport. If other countries played American football and that's all they played, they'd kill us.

Right now, countries like Argentina can line up and whip our ass in Basketball and Soccer. For good reason, those are pretty much the only sports they play. We play tons of sports, our kids go into all kinds of other things. They may be able to beat us in those two, but line Argentina up against us in Football, Hockey, Swimming, Golf, Tennis, Track & Field, or Bowling and we'd kick their ass.

If their kids started getting into football, hockey, swimming, golf, tennis, and track & field, their talent in Soccer and Basketball would dwindle. Then it would probably be a pretty even match in all sports. It all depends on which sport your kids get funneled into.

That's pretty cool. I'd like to do some deep sea fishing this summer, but not on one of those stupid mass charter boats where you just drop in a line for some seabass.

Next summer I'm going down to the west coast of FL with my family and hopefully we'll do some real fishing.

Re: The Zidane Incident

by the way, soccer is so boring that fishing is a much more fun topic.

When I was walking into work on Friday I was thinking that it was great football weather. I said that later in the day and my dad and sister both said, "so did I," at the same time. Apparently everyone around here is getting antsy.

I'm already planning my vacation around football so as to minimize the potential of missing pre-season games.

Wow! I should just lock this thread right now because I don't know that there will be a better post than that. That's hilarious

Yeah, I heard it was allegedly something like "Your mom f**ks terrorists" or something along those lines

Re: The Zidane Incident

Great article from Dr. Z on the head-butt. Sorry, my teaser is a little long here:

Quote:
Picture this. Michael Strahan is tired of offensive linemen grabbing him, strangling him, chopping at his legs, talking never-ending trash, generally messing with him in fringe illegal methods and getting away with it. So he head-butts someone.

Will he get thrown out of the game? Probably not. He'll get a flag. But put him in the context of World Cup Football and the ridiculous grand opera tragedy it has become and he would not only get thrown out but a lifetime of greatness would be ruined -- at least for now.

Zinedine Zidane is not a flopper or a whiner or a moaner. I have never seen him pull one of those scenes from the last act of La Boheme, enacting his death tableau on the field after the merest brush of contact. I haven't seen him lying there at death's door while they go through with the most ridiculous of all dramas, the entry of the stretcher.

Re: The Zidane Incident

BBC Radio Five Live asked for help from a deaf lip reader, Jessica Rees, who read the words phonetically to an Italian translator.

She deciphered the insult as being "you're the son of a terrorist whore" - a translation also carried by many national newspapers in Britain on Tuesday.

The BBC's Ten O'Clock News also called in experts to study the television footage of the incident and determined the following:

Materazzi's first word to Zidane was "no" before he then told him to "calm down".

He then accused him of being a "liar" and wished "an ugly death to you and your family" on the day the Frenchman's mother had been taken to hospital ill. This was followed by "Go f*** yourself".

Zidane's agent, Alain Migliaccio, has hinted that Zidane will soon reveal exactly what was said by Materazzi.

Re: The Zidane Incident

i hate it when idiots like dr. z try and write about soccer when they dont have a clue, having to compare it to football, it doesnt work.

dont see how people can say soccer is boring and love to watch baseball to be honest...

Maybe Strahan doesn't get booted from the game for a helmet-to-helmet head butt, but he would if he spat on his opponent. Zidane's headbutt is like Taylor's spit.
