This is a very important argument in favor of soccer.

I note that Daesh, Al Qaeda, and similar losers disapprove of soccer. These losers (trump has them pegged exactly!) can handle leftist intellectuals, but let's see how they fare against people who don't give a hoot for political correctness and others' cultural impositions.

When I saw the magazine in the picture of the hospitalized jihadi-thwarter, I didn't get the joke. I thought, Why would someone photoshop a picture of a jogger's magazine on a picture of a man in hospital? Now I get it.

A full minute of silence is a lot of silence to ask for in an age of quick-editing TV broadcasting. I'd get antsy after about 20 seconds. Maybe a 15-second moment of silence would be just as effective, and would elicit greater compliance.

Another sports-event practice is the playing of the national anthem (two of them, in the case of hockey) before the action begins. Is there really a desire by most people for this pseudo-religious ceremony, or it is rather the case that no-one wants to be the first to stop applauding Stalin (i.e., drop the pre-game anthem ritual)?

I've been to lots of soccer games in other countries, and they never start with the national anthem, unless the two teams are from different countries (in which case there are two of them). But if it's, say, an English team against an English team, then the game simply starts at the scheduled time. I always laugh at leftists who think they are so daring by burning the flag, but who would never think to protest against this continual playing of the national anthem when no other country does it (except maybe Canada).

I keep rereading the comments for these lines: "I got stabbed and sliced eight times. They got me in my head, chest and both hands. There was blood everywhere. They were saying, 'Islam, Islam!'. I said again, 'F*** you, I’m Millwall!'"

That's a great slogan. How about bumperstickers that say "F*** you, I'm Milwall, and maybe picturing a piece of bacon.

Yes, I love it!
