Iraqi Soccer News

Yep, you read that correctly. These two blurbs were buried in the back of the Sports Section of the Dallas Morning News.
Police say that an Iraqi soccer player was shot dead just as he was about to kick what could have been the tying goal in a weekend game south of Baghdad. A police major said that a striker from the Buhairat amateur team was facing only the goalie Sunday in a match in Hillah when a supporter of the rival Sinjar club shot him in the head in the final minute of play. The major said that a spectator was arrested.
And the other:
Two teams representing the Shiite villages of Sinjar and Enana, near Hilla, which is south of Baghdad, played a close-fought match on Saturday, with Sinjar winning, 2-1. During celebrations, an off-duty police officer started firing his service pistol into the air but lost control of it, the police said. A bullet struck the Sinjar goalie, an 18-year-old high school senior named Mohammed Amin, in the head, killing him instantly. There was no indication the goalie was shot intentionally; the police officer was a Sinjar fan
Oh, my.

would be best if Iran got nukes so that the Jews and ragheads would start nuking each other until the entire middle east glowed.

Sadly, the only time when soccer gets the attention of most Americans is when somebody gets killed. Usually it's a riot or a stadium collapsing, but this'll do I guess.

I suppose we could drop a bunch of soccer balls instead of bombs and wait for them to kill each other....just a thought

As obsessed as the United States is with sports, it is surprising something like that hasn't happened here.

Even cheerleading is getting dangerously out of control.

Winning and popularity rule.

Ironic that the striker was struck. Do the rules stipulate that it is an automatic goal?

Random gun fire is one way to make soccer more exciting. I'd start watching it.

Is the reason it was a head shot because the players wear bullet-proof vests?

All soccer players and soccer "fans" should be shot in the head.

Actually, I spoke with a U.S. Senator, YESTERDAY and random gunfire was never mentioned as a possible means to resolve ANY problem. Clearly, you are mistaken. Incidentally, I doubt very seriously any member of the U.S. government cares about the happiness of you or any other American.

You REALLY are clueless when it comes to knowing ANYTHING about me or what I do.

Does anybody know why guards at prisons wear "bullet proof" vests?

So who has the guns in these places that protect "us" from "them"?

Just because someone excells at everything they do does not mean they are attempting to compensate for ANYTHING. It means they are REALLY good at the things they do. As for your fair weather empathy....keep it for someone who cares what people like you think about them.

If you had your head stuck anywhere other than up your own rear you would be aware of the fact that "hater" is not my term. Hater is common to the modern lexicon and perfectly describes people like you.

When someone tells you how good they are at something, you can bet they really are not.

TO anonymous HATERS...
AHEM.... Take and make note that MY original comment on this blog post was CONGRATULATING someone for making an INCREDIBLY funny comment. I ONLY responded to those who FIRST directed their petty comments toward me. Just because I SLAM the cretins who, mindlessly, take pot shots at me does NOT make me the instigator.

GROW UP!. You cretins are eaten up by your own failures and let your petty jealousy of someone on the Interweb eat you alive. You hating me for being PROUD for being intelligent, happily married, wealthy, successful, thin and attractive is YOUR issue, NOT mine. Here is a suggestion, if you HATERS do not want to hear about my attributes, STOP BRINGING THEM UP!

I LOVE BEING ME and the fact that me being me pisses off you.

To anonymous 11:57 HATER...
You failed to note that my ORIGINAL comment on this blog post was congratulating someone for making an incredibly humourous comment. You haters are the ones who turned the comments into being about ME. YOU are the one who had to drag 03.17.09 comments into 03.18.09 blog comments and did not post your 12:05, 03.18.09 comment and your 11:57 comment on this blog entry until 03.19.09. You are either incredibly slllooooowwww or unbelievably PATHETIC.

Note, Barry's first comment on his 03.18.09 blog was ABOUT ME. If you do not want the topic to be about me then YOU need to STOP making it about me, you jealous git.

Get over me being me and get on with you being you. Oh right. you spending your time hating ME is better than you being you.
