Yes this is still a baseball blog, yes you are still on MLBlogs, but it is my
blog, and since Foxsports decided to cancel and remove my FoxSports blog, I
might add without any notice or reason, I can only think or believe that they
didn’t not see eye to eye with my views of them or their coverage of sports, and
as I told them, quite honestly they can ‘go forth and multiply’.
Which leads me into the next segment nicely, because, as most of you know the
FIFA World Cup starts today, for the most part the game that is being
highlighted by the American media is tomorrow, USA vs. England. It is this that
links to my message to FoxSports, the media here in America seems to be finding
ways to convince itself that it can easily win the game against England, now
okay, it may not be very popular here, but outside of this nation everyone knows
that America and it’s population believes it is the greatest in the world at
everything, lets face it they even recreated the world atlas so that America was
in the center, where as the rest of the world use the zero hour timeline as the
center. Anyway I digress, a recent post by ‘Yahoo
Sports Dirty Tackle’ is telling us that the referee’s for the World Cup have
learned all the English obscenities in an effort to send off England players,
hence giving the USA team the advantage. Okay all those non-knowing football
people, (that’s soccer to those uninformed people, yes football is played
with your feet), when a referee sends you off (ejects you) you are
not replaced by another player.
I think Yahoo Sports is trying to convince itself that just maybe this year
football (soccer) in America may start to pay dividends, because they also want
us to believe that WAG’s are going to somehow cause the England squad to play
badly. This time Martin
Rodgers for Yahoo Sports is trying to convince us, just one problem Mr.
Rodgers, Victoria Beckham
is not really a WAG and your slide
show depicting 15 woman who apparently are going to party so hard it’s going
to knock their men off their game, well check it out Mr. Rodgers, because out of
15, there are actually only 4 of women associated with actual England players, 3
of them the players aren’t even at the World Cup, there is a U.S.A. players
girlfriend, and the rest are from other European teams, hint just cause the
player plays for an English Premier club doesn’t mean they are English
playing for the England team.
Maybe that’s the problem with Ryan Howard, his girlfriend, reportedly his new
allowed him to do a trade of his own, he allegedly traded in the
‘Eagles Cheerleader’ for a ‘Victoria’s Secret’ model. Well wouldn’t you upgrade
something if you got his contract.
we will find out if the distractions that Yahoo Sports claims will have an
effect on the England team. I did notice that Yahoo Sports doesn’t reference the
insider claims that the U.S.A. team may target Rooney (England
striker) in an effort to either injure
him or get him banned, since he is known to have a temper which is quick to come
to the surface.
Other effects could be the fact that back in England there has are some
people intent on making it hard to
show support for the team and display the St. Georges flag, due to
claims of it being
offensive and possibly incite anger and violence from people who aren’t English,
personally again those people can ‘go forth and multiply’ , a national newspaper is giving away the
Georges flag free with every copy of it’s newspaper tomorrow, only in England
Those that are into the FIFA World Cup enjoy and show support for your team
at every opportunity, for those that aren’t into the FIFA World Cup, ‘WTF are
you doing reading this far down this post’….. GO
Last week, al-Qaeda’s North African network released threats upon the FIFA World Cup event this June in South Africa. The primary target as indicated by the threat is the scheduled game between the U.S.A. and England in Cape Town.
The threats appear on al-Qaeda-linked websites. A statement said: “How
beautiful would the game between England and the USA be when broadcast
from a stadium full of spectators – when the sound of an explosion
through the stands. The resulting death toll is in the dozens and
They have also vowed to target a full array of facilities that is known to be utilized by supporters during this tournament, from hotels to car parks. They are also claiming to have explosives that will be undetected by the security scanning systems.
This type of threat against a World Sporting event is pitiful and should be prevented at the source.

On a happier note Roy Halladay takes the mound today, as the Phillies attempt to sweep the Astros and keep them as the only team in the MLB without a win.
