The World Cup and politically correct nonsense

June 9, 2006

Please do not expect to get any common sense from me until after the 9th July. With two or three games to squeeze in every day until June 27th normal service is unlikely to be resumed for a while. I may blog about football, I may even blog about other stuff, but on the other hand I am just as likely to sit in front of the telly and forget all about blogging.

The two opening games in group A today will not have worried England as none of the four teams looked to be a huge threat and if England qualify out of Group B they will have to meet the first or second team from this group.

As for real life – well lets put it like this. Political correctness can be taken too far in my humble opinion. In a certain office a draw was run for the World Cup. Each team was allocated a World Cup team and each team was then encouraged to decorate their area in the colours, flags, shirts etc of their nominated team. The reason that this had been done was because they were worried that those non English people who worked for the company would be offended if the English people all put up the English flag. How about the English people who are offended by this politically correct nonsense!!

And if you want to see more nonsense have a look at this one

    I quite agree (and have done so in more detail here).

    Enjoy your world cup!

    Love the World Cup too eh? Well, I love it too. Too bad the Yanks don’t understand what they’re missing out on.

    But hey at least they have the world series which would be brilliant except for the fact that it does not invlove most of the world!

    Hey guys I’m a Yank and haven’t missed a game yet.

    I was actually disappointed in England. I think they played WAY to conservative. Another disappointment was Sweden. But Ecuador and Trinidad’s play actually surprised me.

    The best thing about the World Cup is that is just keeps getting better and better as it progresses.
