Just when you thought the world of sports was safe from a delusional, drug or alcohol induced, hyperventilatey attack from ol’ Beckerhead at FOX, you were wrong. On his radio show last week Glenny Boy said the following:
“I don’t get the baseball thing, but the soccer thing, I hate it so much — probably because the rest of the world likes it so much, and they riot over it, and they continually try to jam it down our throat… It doesn’t matter how you sell it to us. It doesn’t matter how many celebrities you get. It doesn’t matter how many bars open early. It doesn’t matter how many beer commercials they run. We don’t want the World Cup. We don’t like the World Cup. We don’t like soccer. We want nothing to do with it. You can package it any way — you can spend all kinds of money. You can force it on our television sets. We will not enjoy the World Cup.”
What a shock, the unrefined, uncultured mouthbreathers on the right don’t particularly care for the world’s most popular sport. And just like the Drugster Limbaugh, there’s that “jam it down our throats” comment again in Glenny Boy’s rant.
And really Becky, “they riot over it”? You of all people should be criticizing people for rioting, considering it is YOUR ‘team’ that has people who say things like “gather your (treasonous) armies” against the government and hijack town hall meetings to read corporate talking points. That would be like me posting a rant against people with hair that’s not the natural color. 😉
Sorry Glenny Boy, this is the WORLD Cup. You might think you’re the shit and all, but more people like soccer than you. I know that must be eating at you inside.
