On My Home Planet

I have an opinion about everything, and here it is for the world to see.

Hating on: morons, self-righteous political extremists, the man-and-baby-hating strain of feminism, CraigsList, yuppies, careerists, white liberal guilt, people devoid of any sense of morals or personal responsbility, and other generally clueless and misguided types who continually piss me off.

World Cup - Enough Already

re: the guys camped out in breakrooms across America, crowded around the TV for the last 3 weeks straight, watching endless rounds of this infernal soccer match:
- Is this fascination with soccer due to latent homosexual desires (soccer players are not exactly an unattractive lot) or are football and baseball being replaced as our national pastimes as this country goes more "sensitive" and "global"?

Discuss amongst yourselves. And move the hell out of my way, I need more coffee.

The World Cup takes place once every FOUR years. Like the Olympics. Kind of a big deal. Qualifying to even get into the World Cup is a two year process. Around 200 countries try to get in, and only 32 make it. Contrast that with the NBA playoffs, where over half of the teams make it.

As for baseball, there's 162 games played in the regular season, thereby rendering the outcome of any individual game, for all intents and purposes, practically meaningless.

Don't worry about soccer becomming the new "national pastime" - after July 9th, you won't have to be bothered with soccer until 2010.

"Kind of a big deal" still doesn't make it "not annoying".
