World Cup Soccer

Postby Son of Butch » Wed Jul 04, 2018 8:47 am

The average American cares less than Zero for soccer while the rest of the world highly values the game.
I was very impressed with Japan's soccer fans and their team's manners and graciousness in defeat.

Belgium eliminated Japan 3-2 then after the heart breaking loss, Japan's fans stayed behind to clean up after
themselves. They picked up and disposed of all the trash and litter that had accumulated in the stadium.
Russian officials also reported that Japan's team had left the team locker room spotless, leaving behind only
a Thank You Note for Russia's hospitality in hosting the games .

Below are the current odds for the 8 remaining teams

Brazil 5-2
England 7-2
France 4-1
Belgium 6-1
Croatia 6-1
Uruguay 16-1
Russia 20-1
Sweden 25-1

My Korean friend Josh cured me of my racism, as I told him... I always thought of Asians as smart until I met him.

Japanese are a nationality not a race.

BTW: anthropologists are now moving slowly away from dividing Homo sapiens into races. Based on two tenets:

1. All Homo sapiens are fundamentally the same and the differences that have accumulated due to isolation from the ancestral gene pool are not worthy of distinction.

2. It contributes to racism.

Japenese and other Orientals including the American Indian have historically been included in the Mongoloid Race, named after the great Mongol civilization, not to be confused with the genetic defect - down syndrome (mongolism).

I will accept your word for that. But I will mention there are some world famous Japanese Anthropologists who would accept that mumbo jumbo.
