    Yes, when Dr. Jamehd Al-Naismithstani nailed a pomegranate basket to the wall and threw a soccer ball through it.


    ;)

    This is a good story, and the type of cross-cultural stuff that needs to occur. Ultimately, governments have to follow the will of their people.

    I think Al-Naismithstani was from Dunkistan, not Iran.

    If the Irani League does keeps spending money on washed up foreigners they will never have the money to build BSS, which are really the future of the sport. Without BSS, there really isn't the atmosphere to develop new fans and get rid of the general impression that basketball is a game played by girly foreigners.

    Their problem is that they get no coverage on Al-JezZSPN.

    The main problem is Gemal al-Romanallashahab and his daily bashing of basketball on his show "Romanallashab is burning infidels at the stake".

    Ironically,his son is a star biddy basketball player.

    Only when he's coached for every team in the NBA.

    In other words, in a couple of years.

    Maybe the US should send that psycho-guy Artess (sp?) over to Iran, as an ambassador of goodwill.

    It's a win-win situation. He wants to leave Indiana, and his presense will really ******** things up in Iran. It would bring a whole new meaning to the term 'Great Satan'.

    :D

    I find it hard to believe that moron would even get laid, let alone have a son who plays soccer.

    you can consume alcohol in the privacy of home/party, specially for non-moslems it's legal. and moslems just drink but keep it low profile.

    It was mentioned in one of the millions of Rome threads ,can't remember if he has ever discussed it himself or it's a BigSoccer urban legend.

    Wow,going way off topic,a BigSoccer urban legends thread would rock.No idea where it would go though....

    Think of it -Rome's son,Michael Ricketts,stadium announcements in 30 to 60 days,information on WMDs in 72 hours...
