Other three things I hate:

1) Alexi Lalas
2) Football, erm, soccer "fans" who have watched 2 games their whole life and feel like they're an expert at the game (A.K.A. Alexi Lalas)
3) Folks who think like Alexi Lalas in other subjects, otherwise known as insular twits

OK, I cannot possibly let this go. Soccer is the closest thing to a universal sport and in fact, it is. The game was started in England, spread across Europe, and when Europeans emigrated to the Americas, Asia, Africa, and Australia, the game spread. It is still played in those nations today, obviously, and why else do you think European nations bother to assemble a national soccer team, let alone a league? They're not quite third world, no? Neither are a number of Asian nations nor Australia. The US has a league and a national team as well.

...and you say third world like it's a bad thing. It's like inner city kids who take a shine to basketball early and aspire to become basketball players. Kids aspiring to become baseball players in Latin American countries by learning and embracing the game as its own. It's also beautiful to see those in poverty here and abroad that see hope in playing soccer, even if it's just to pass the time and simply to have fun.

What you just said smacks of ignorance, IMO.

You know Ludo? Wow. Thought they were all but unkown outside of the St. Louis area. Good band.



One of my favorite bands! And no, I'm not from St. Louis. A couple years ago, a local (now defunct) radios station had a weekly thing where they highlighted up-and-coming bands. They played Love Me Dead and I was hooked instantly. Now they're up there with Weezer and Sugarcult as my favorite bands.

1. Violent protestors who cover their faces. Real brave.
2. Moron socialists in my province who whine for more public services and then whine more when a new tax is introduced. I swear some people complain just for the sake of complaining. Or are just plain stupid... one of the two.
3. Mondays.

X2. Monday morning is the worst time of the week. At least there's a long weekend at the end of this week (If you get July 4th off).

...and protesters who think it's okay to destroy private property (like stores, who usually have nothing whatsoever to do with what the protest is about). And protesters who think it's okay to throw bottles, rocks, molotov's, etc and also assault the police, but who raise hell if the police lay a finger on them because it's a violation of their civil rights.

Definately! I should have elaborated. I remember seeing footage of some Olympic protestors being arrested and this guy was screaming "Police brutality" at the top of the lungs when they were treating him like an expensive vase. If it were me I'd bust out the tasers and non-lethal guns at the first sign of violence. Police shouldn't have to deal with that crap.

There are only two things I can't stand in this world: people who are intolerant of other people's cultures, and the Dutch!
