Mexican soccer pride? Help, I'm going #$%! NUTS!!!

post #1 of 85
Thread Starter 


Okay, I don't know WHAT'S going on exactly (who won, who's winning, who kicked who in the nuts, etc.), but for the PAST FOUR HOURS, every goddamn Hispanic person in the county has apparently nothing better to do than ride up and down the street beside my apartment and lay on the horns of their Impalas and Chevettes.

It's been a non-stop ****ing horn fest for the better part of the late afternoon/evening.

Someone want to fill me in on what's happening? Did they win?

I'll never get to sleep tonight. People are hanging out of cars, waving flags (putting flags ON THEIR WINDSHIELD...really smart), throwing firecrackers, beer cans, screaming, etc.

I've already seen two fender benders in the past three hours.

Idiots. Yeah, I said it. God, I hate sports fans like this. Same thing when the Chargers miraculously win a game: every dipshit in San Diego is suddenly a "Bolts fan" and has to spend the rest of Sunday afternoon showing his ass and generally making life miserable for people like me who don't especially get turned on by tire-necked cavemen in funny tight pants and shoulder pads.



I suppose it's too much to ask that these people drive home, park their piece-of-**** cars and go inside and celebrate inside, amongst themselves?

****HEADS!!!

OHMIGOD...every horn in the town is going off right now! Some ******* at the traffic light a block from my house just got everyone going. JEEEEEEEZ...





All this over the most pussy sport I've ever seen. I used to play it for six years, so I can comment on it. Buzz off.

T-minus 20 minutes and counting...

U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!

I don't know about the people on your block, but the soccer fans in Mexico City are swine. The bastards routinely throw garbage and zip-locked bags of urine at at our players, taunt them, etc.

I hope we kick the sh*t out of them tonight. If not us, someone else surely will in the next round. They won't get past Germany, and they sure as hell wouldn't get past Spain / Italy.

I was kind of rooting for Ireland today, such a great game for an underdog. They were gutsy. But I like Spain as well (have family from there).

Oh yeah, before any of you culturally sensitive/hyper P.C. types get your nose out of whack, I can indeed say that "yes, these are Hispanic/Latinos doing this". I'm not just making a blanket statement and ASSUMING anything.

Isn't a racial thing or anything of the sort. I've sat here for the better part of the afternoon/evening (including right now) and can clearly see the people doing it. Not one white, Asian or black person in the bunch, so...



Tonight, June 16, in Vista, CA, it is indeed a Mexican/Hispanic thing, okay?

Besides, I live in a VERY Hispanic-heavy area, so I guess I should've seen this coming.

Again, not a "racist" thing, so don't even start with me.

When obnoxious, white fat asses ride around doing this kind of stuff (see above Chargers comment), I get equally irked.

WAIT A MINUTE: "game hasn't started yet" and "20 minutes to go"?

Is this game coming on TONIGHT?!?! Where in the hell are they playing?

Oh **** !!!



Okay, I was mildly rankled before. Now I'm officially pissed off.

I'm damned if I do, damned if I don't: if Mexico wins, I get to lay here all night and listen to the idiots carry on until 5am. Mmmm...can't wait!

If they LOSE, I might get to walk out to a charred, grafitti-covered car tomorrow morning. Oh joy...

I REALLY hope these aren't "destroy and burn stuff" sports fans. Maybe it's best that I just plant myself in front of my window for the night and keep an eye on things? Yeah, that's what I really want to be doing on a work night.

Why can't people just not be dicks and lose their minds when sports don't go their way? Where is it written that you have to act like a flaming asshead and turn cars over and throw garbage cans through property that doesn't belong to you? When did this lovely form of solidarity and self-expression take root?

You know, it DID get kinda quiet here suddenly! Haven't heard a horn or yell in about 20 minutes!

Maybe I'll get in MY car and drive around with an American flag, and...

On second thought, probably not. I couldn't think of a better, quicker way to get my ass whipped.

Hey Cheap-shot artist, diving hack-boys from meh-HE-co:

Na na na naaah, na na NAH nahhh, HEY HEY hey - you suck!

I've never seen so many pathetic dives and cheap shots in my life. Mexico deserved to lose. Worse still I didn't see ONE of those SOB's shaking hands after the game. First team I've ever seen walk off the field without shaking hands / changing jersies...[turd-balls that they are].

Loooooo-zers.

That was a bad no-call. But you know what - the guy obviously didn't see it. Hell, two of the first three yellow cards he gave us during the start of the 2nd period were total crap calls. Delay of game?? Please...you want to call delay of game call it on that long-haired pansy who tumbled to the ground anytime someone got within 2 feet of him. What an ass.

And Blanco - major dickhead. The guy clenched his fist a couple times when he fell down with another player like someone axed his mother.

Did I say "Loooooo-zers" yet?

I saw some Mexican player in an interview yesterday saying that for "political reasons" Mexico would have to win the match, it being very important to them. Idiot. Mexico deserved to lose for that comment alone.

Yeah, and we managed 1-0 the year before ... in Wembley

I'm looking forward to the match against USA. They can be proud of reaching the quarter finals. But that should be enough.

1-0
1-5 which looks better?

Some Germans, egged on by some of their newspapers, do indeed seem to believe that the cup is theirs already, and for that alone they deserve to be taught a lesson.

It's not over until the fat lady sings.

GO U.S. Heck, the States is not even a footballing nation. Well done.

Honestly: I love the matches between England and Germany, because I have much respect for the English team. These games are always full of tension, unpredictable, and the English play fair.

Yeah, some newspapers keep overestimating the German team. I think they have a good chance against USA, but the semi final would mean Spain or Italy (I don't count on South Corea). And, well ...

But we were taught our lesson in the last two world cups. '94 quarter final against Bulgaria, '98 against Croatia. Euro cup 2000 - not even made the first round.

Currently it's the best German team since 1990. Winning the Euro '96 was only an "accident".

It's strange - if we were thrown out of the cup in the first round or in the game against Paraguay, everyone would have said: That's what I expected. Now it's the quarter final and some people are convinced we'll make to the final. At least.

But, hey, wouldn't it be great to have a final England - Germany? Still possible ...

The scary thing is that most Americans could care less about the World Cup other than the fact that we think its hilarious that we're still in it while countries that love the game so much are not. The fact that the US is still in it while most 'favorites' are out delights a lot of people around here.

I could still really care less about soccer myself (meaning I won't get up at 2:20 AM to watch it although I was up early enough to catch the end), but the fact that they are winning sure is cool.

At the end of the day, it's only a game, played by 11 players that I do not know personally, and whose outcome will not affect my life one way or the other.

Hey TI you seems to be very active on the threads dealing with football
post #35 of 85
Fran's right though - American's prefer basketball, American football, and baseball over soccer (which the rest of the world confusingly refers to as football). I for one had no clue that the World Cup was even happening until the BBC website was so jammed that I couldn't get on it (too many people checking the scores).

But soccer is up and coming. Based on our population size and wealth, I can only assume that it's a matter of time until we become a top tier team if we put our minds to it.

p.s., Pscates, all those hordes of Mexicans overrunning San Diego are simply adding to the pool of human capital that MLS and the U.S. team can draw upon. Although I think that you need to be a U.S. citizen first...

Soccer will never be big as a pro sport in the U.S. It's had a lot of support for years at the high school and college level but that's as far as it's gone. And that's as far as it will ever go. I'm rooting for our World Cup team. They've shown me a lot of heart. In any other nation they'd be household names. I'm not in any way denigrating them or their efforts or the sport. It's just that soccer will never be half as big in this country as even hockey is. Sorry guys.
