Found out about the news sometime in mid December. Never finish my ranting blog until now. Not really a true soccer fan but I will watch the world cup here and there to catch some USA action because I am a true homer. That's what make USA great right? Fuck yeah! Homerism USA!
We want to be the best in everything. Unfortunately, soccer is not one of them and to rubbed salt on the wounds of thousands of usa soccer fans and when i said a thousand. I meant 1,000 because there's not really large fan base. We lost the bid to host it.
Everytime Soccer tries to make some strides in America, something comes along that just doesn’t make any sense. We had one hot game in the World Cup earlier last year and got some attention for the US Soccer team, then we promptly got beat and bounced from the tourney. Then we had a major bid for the games in 2022…and we lost. To Qatar. Other than being a great play in Scrabble if you don’t have any U’s, Qatar is as random as it gets. First, I don’t care how smart you are, I know none of you know where the hell Qatar is. Hell after this map, you still might not know where it is, but here it is.
Qatar is literally a minuscule nipple off Saudi Arabia in the Persian Gulf. It is smaller than the state of Connecticut, and I’m pretty sure more people showed up for Obama’s Inauguration than live in the Country of Qatar. What the hell was FIFA thinking here?
The money must really be flowing over there. Qatar won the big for 2022 by building a stadium that looks like a giant shell, a stadium that has skin wrapped around the outside that will act as a giant television, and one that looks like a giant boat. Which sounds crazy, but kinda looks like it might fit in based on what the place currently looks like.
They should just build a tea cup too. Does anyone have any confidence this little country will be able to build all of this in the 12 years necessary? You know they aren’t really looking to hire a lot of people for this, it will either be build or leave. Everyone in Qatar is about to be in the construction business. Oh, and there won’t be many Jews attending the game as it is law in Qatar that no citizen of Isreal is allowed in the country.
What is the threat level going to be during these games? How are they going to guarantee safety in a country within a missile attack of being wiped off the map? Brilliant move. I guess America can try again in for the 2026 games. Next time we will bring out all the stops and make sure Morgan Freeman doesn’t mess up the speech this time.
Of course, when a decision like this is made, everyone suspects foul play. They think it was all a bribe. They believe there was money flying around. Well Money does talks and Bull shit walks.
Oh, and before I go, I got a new ride, peep it.
What? Everyone doesn’t have gold plated Ferraris?
