Whenever I take my cat to the vet, he cries like I’m taking him to the slaughterhouse. I always ask him, “Are you a South American soccer player?”

Well, many players tried hard to virtue signal with the co-opted rainbow paraphernalia early on.

Given their predilection from suffering near fatal injuries from only a breeze, draws one conclusion.

Soccer is G A Y.

Well, I did it again. I tried to find soccer interesting and actually tuned in for a game...or match...or whatever they call it. No dice.

It's just slow-motion hockey on land and with more players, but without the speed, thrills, and excitement of hockey.

That crash was Fernando Alonso at Australia in 2016. He was going 300 kp/h not 250 miles per hour. Still a hell of a wreck though. If I remember correctly he broke a rib.

This is only funny because it is pathetically true!

There is a very simple solution to this problem. If a player is rolling around in agony clearly he is in need of medical intervention. He MUST be taken to the sidelines for 5 minutes to be checked out by a doctor, while play continues. A substitute may immediately enter the game if one is available but the injured player may not return to the pitch. Nobody should object to the rule because it is for player safety, and safety is the most important thing.

And the Oscar for best dramatic actor goes to Cristiano Ronaldo for his performance in "Commie Kickball."

On a personal note, my youngest son was sent in at the beginning of the second half after taking a breather with the admonition to "score a goal now." He headed a ball in for a goal, assisted in a follow up goal, then drew a penalty, all in about 1 minute. He was helped off the field...😂😂😂

This is a sign of our times when everyone is a special snowflake and easily offended and 'wounded' but insignificance while the guy who just survived a crash or survived being on the Ukrainian/Russian front is simply glad to be alive.....but what does reality have to do with anything when you live in a virtual world?????

I'm in Wales in the UK. England are playing France, with France one goal ahead as of 15 minutes ago. I'm rooting for France, because Wales hate England anyway, because the French have better food, and because if France win they face Morocco, and for that match every gendarme in France will have his/her/their leave cancelled as the atmosphere in the banlieus should be interesting to say the least. :-)

I can't help noticing that this "kitten corner" is signed by el gato malo instead of gatito bueno.

I'm starting to suspect that they're the same animal.

My husband commented similarly this morning (he’s a cyclist, NOT pro, and we regularly watch road, track, and cx)…”we watch guys crash going 50mph(80kph) that get back on their bikes and keep racing”, what’s up with these World Cup dudes?”

Maybe they’ve been taking flop lessons from Lebron?

Sometimes guys go down like a sniper shot them. You have to search for the kitty snipers.
