Well it’s time to dust off the ole cobwebs and see about kicking this blog back into reality. It really is amazing what happens when you get out of the golf operation side of things. This “free time” the rest of the world speaks about is not too bad. Also, it’s nice not looking at weekend with a disdain hatred because of all the fun the rest of your Facebook newsfeed is having. People coming home from their wild Friday night as you’re waking up to go get your head ripped off by 60-65 year olds that are pissed that they played in 4:27 instead of 4:25 wears down a man. Anyways…enough about that and let’s chat sports. Today’s topic is addressing the insecurities of Europe and Trumpies.
Sorry in advance Tucker as we’re going to offend some people…..
A little back-story on how this whole topic came about, I woke up this morning to being tagged in a post from Colin McKellar (Chelsea scum) where a group of 7-10 Atlanta United supporters were doing their best to rally the other 10-15 supporters there. Truly did look pathetic. See below….But then I did a little research into the video and saw that this was merely a pre-season game. Like c’mon man? Really? Europeans going to come rip American soccer fans, ATL United, for a pathetic looking video making fun of American fans doing what they deem as “not worthy chants” at a preseason game for an expansion team? How many Crystal Palace fans would travel to Norway for a pre-season game? I’ll put the O/U on 50. You would never hear about that though.
So here is the basis of the article, assuming the American readers all are still with me and haven’t given up on a soccer story, which is the pickle that true American soccer/football/futbol fans are in with Euro snobs and Trumpies as I call them. One cannot just be an American soccer fan and post openly about it without a rash of response from people. I actually find it funny when a European and, well since y’all Brexit-ed I should address the UK separately, come at me for soccer knowledge. Like bruh you realize I get access to EVERY. SINGLE. GAME. On live television. Every single premier league game, every single champions league game, most relevant La Liga, Bundesliga, Seria A and Ligue 1 games. I will go out on a limb and bet with anyone who doesn’t illegally stream games that the die-hard American fan of the game will watch more games than any fan in the UK. Enjoy the United/Bournemouth game today because you’re about to get blacked out for all the 10 AM games. Oh, America you didn’t know? Yeah, in the UK you don’t get access to all of the games. Imagine watching the College Gameday crew sit around and watch the college games that you can’t watch and react on live Television. That is what they watch. No highlights, no live game, nothing. Shocking really for a country that lives, eats, breaths, fights, kills for soccer/football. So why is it that you all can have superiority of American fans? Not sure actually the more I think about it. To be honest I am not sure why there is such an insecurity towards us anyway? It will never be the number 1 sport here so it’s not like we’re going to take over the world with it, unlike our political policies. At the end of the day the true fans who dedicate time and effort to keep up with the European games/leagues just want to be able to sit at the table and have a conversation about it that we don’t normally get to have with other Americans who DGAF. Don’t worry we know the elephant in the room is the fact that we call it soccer and you call it football. Unfortunately, that just won’t change so just deal with it.
Now that I have ripped the Euro’s, it’s your turn America. What is it with you Trumpies and complaining so damn much about soccer fans? Like what are YOU so insecure about? It will never pass NFL, College Football, or the NBA so who cares? Subtle shots fired at MLB and NHL fans. Oops. Anyways, you treat soccer fans like we’re Putin, or I guess Trump likes Putin which means you like Putin, so more like Kim Jung-Un? Anything progressive in this country is not okay apparently. Which is not shocking. I’ll ask you this, what else are you watching from 7-11 AM on a Saturday/Sunday? Your 12th re-run or SportsCenter? Some would actually enjoy the idea of cracking open a cold one and watching your squad at 8 AM. It would make sense if it was keeping you from watching Lakers v Celtics or Alabama v Auburn, but no, instead it’s keeping you from watching some cooking infomercial. On Tuesdays and Wednesday when Champions League is on and I ask for the bartender to put it on at 2:45 instead of watching the 3rd re-run of first take I could do without the random comment from the end of the bar. I don’t care that YOU don’t like soccer. I care that you care that I do like soccer. If you like Zaxbys more than Chick-Fil-A who cares if I saw you’re wrong? If you like it more than Chick-Fil-A go then keep eating that Zaxby’s. Make YOU happy. As Corinne would say from The Bachelor, “You do you.” If you stop liking Zaxby’s then you’re a sheep. Little heads up, we’re not going to stop posting, writing, watching, soccer just because you say you don’t like it. I remember when Women’s Rights and Civil Rights were thought of as annoying, pointless and a waste of time. We’re not here to tell you to watch it like the bible thumpers do. We’re just here to tell you to piss off when you tell us watching a sport we enjoy is stupid.
I’ll be at the Orlando City home opener this weekend, assuming there isn’t some riot by the american people to stop the game.
