I was pondering the many differences which seperare America from the rest of the world. I had included numerous examples, but unfortunately I ran into a bug which hosed up all my Internet Explorer windows, losing all of my near-finished post in the process. GRRRRRRR....
From now on I think I'll Ctrl-C all my stuff when I'm working in another window. Blah!
Oh well. I'll recap:
***The Metric System
***Something else... don't remember.
***Israel (Long rant, don't get me started...I'll save it for another time)
***Most importantly, soccer. Soccer/football is the game which divides the Joe Sixpack American from just about all other people in the world. Ask any guy in American what he thinks of soccer and chances are he'll say that it's... to put it mildly... somewhat effeminate. I don't know where this attitude stems from, but it seems quite commonplace, especially as the outside world is taken in with the World Cup.
I think soccer's a great sport... when watched in 3 minute highlight reels on ESPN2. I don't have the patience for a whole game of defense... At least baseball has an offensive focus ever play. I, like my compatriots, do know understand the thrill of a mess of guys running around all day without the faintest possibility of excitement (as we would define it at least.)
Hmm... "at least" is definitely my verbal crutch... in writing this blog at least. heh. later... posted by Steve
