Look ma, hands!

I see the duplicitous frogs are at it again. A crying shame to be sure, but maybe you leprechauns should've kept a few snakes around.

Oh well, I bet the *chuckle* USA *chortle* will do *guffaw* well, whatever the *wheeze* draw *bwahahahaha*.

Combining sports commentary with geopolitical insights and AC/DC makes it much more palatable.

But it's still you, so that's only a marginal improvement.

So much for the Luck of The Irish!

Mary Ellen said...

Frogs...blech :-p

AC/DC- Excellent!

MRMacrum said...

Actually this is a perfect example of the Luck of the Irish. Now they can retire in front of the fire with their whiskey and brood as only the Irish can. I will never really understand how all this World Football works anyway. I mean come on, wherre's the passing, the hits, the steroid inflamed monster front lines?

I could have easily done without the onslaught of the ultimate Mullet band. Unless they are singing "Balls". That one song puts them somewhat higher than Black Sabbath on my all time not so great but no one else seems to agree with me Rock n Roll list.

I do agree the song was appropriate though.

Not to mention, ze French will headbut you when you make remarks about their ancestory. Come to think of it though, Zidane is a cleaner player than that gal from New Mexico State.

Tengrain said...

Graves, you swine!

Being both French and Irish, I just won and lost, and I have no idea who to surrender to. Think I'll read some Joyce and get iced to the eyebrows.



Randal Graves said...

übermilf, yet here you are, increasing my stat counter if I had one. Thus, I must conclude that I am indeed quite awesome.

sunshine, too much whiskey.

nunly, spoken like a true eye-talien. Yousguys are everywhere!

mrmacrum, I'd really like to overlook your BLASPHEMY against AC/DC and Black Sabbath, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to round up some mullets and send them to Maine to drive around your store blaring said bands.

cormac, exactly. At least his cheap shot didn't come from the flank or the rear.

tengrain, don't forget your smokes and beret. Alternating between smiling eyeballs and aloof scowling might be a bit tough if you get too sauced.

Holte Ender said...

The buffoonish fat cats that run world soccer are to blame for this miscarriage of justice. It happens weekly, bad refereeing decisions deciding the outcome of games. I used to be a referee so I know how crap they are.

The is a movement for video evidence which keeps getting rejected by the suits at HQ, it would "slow down the game, make it too fragmented. . . blah blah blah"

Imagine the outcry in the NFL. Whoa Nelly.

FIFA got the result it wanted, France have a much bigger following with bigger name players = better viewing figures = equals more money = better suits.

MRMacrum said...

Randal - The Mullet heads you mention are already here and have been since the 80s. And they have been driving around in pick ups with no doors for the last 25 years with the same "For those about to Rock, we salute you" tune blaring from broken speakers pushed past their limits. You need not raise an alarm. They already know where I am.

Randal Graves said...

holte, it's such a fucking joke and I'm sick of talking heads of all sports worldwide that don't have instant replay bitching about how it'll 'slow the game down,' an apparently more important concern than getting things right.

Hmmm, come to think of it, they sound just like politicians.

It's real simple: have a dedicated video ref, who has the full power to say 'hang on a sec, we need to review that.' Humans fuck up. No shame in that, it's part of who we are.

Go Slovenia!

mrmacrum, good song, but the Bon Scott era was better. Do mulletheads even listen to Sabbath?


MRMacrum said...

Randal - No I guess the Mullet heads don't listen to Sabbath. But their head banging buds do. And I am surrounded by both. Throw in a smattering of "I'm pretty fly for a white guy" homey wannabes and waiting at the drive thru at Dunkin Donuts can be real torture.

I actually like Black Sabbath, but having endured two tours driving a truck for them sort of put a damper on my enthusiasm. I get the cold sweats every time I hear "I am Iron Man".

sunshine said...

Just passing though.. trying out my new Profile pic.
I've had my blog almost a year now. I thought it was time to change it up!
What do you think?? To dismal?


Randal Graves said...

mrmacrum, I think I make out worse in this situation, as all I seem to hear blared is rap and faux redneck stuff. Then again, that's only intermittently, unlike what you have to hear. Save for my jackass neighbor.


Who blares shit in a goddamn drive through? Damn kids, get off my lawn.

sunshine, c'mon, you know I'm all about the dismal. A pox upon bright colors!

TomCat said...

Vive le France!! ;-)

Tom Harper said...

Thanks for the hit of AC/DC. I'm awake now.

S.W. Anderson said...

I will respectfully defer to Holte, who obviously knows what he's talking about.

Beach Bum said...

USA in men's world cup soccer? Wow, they let any riffraff in.

Randal Graves said...

tomcat, cheatin' bastards!

tom, a much better alarm clock than the usual, no?

SWA, yeah, but we got an over-the-hill Beckham. Take that, Angles!

BB, to be fair, we aren't the complete joke we used to be, but getting out of the first round, depending on the draw, is about all I assume we can hope for.

Freida Bee, MD said...

I can't believe I'm the first to say, "That's the title of the year, there, Randal." (Sports post or no.)

Randal Graves said...

I know, I should have saved it for something a bit more sexalicious.

Dr. Zaius said...

Sounds like low income grousing if you ask me. ;o)
